An eFeedLink Exclusive



Price summary


Prices were mostly lower.



Market analysis


AA broiler

Diminished demand for chicken products after the Dragon Boat Festival holidays dragged down the sales of AA broiler. Prices weakened in almost all regions, except for the northeast market.

As most AA broiler farms are incurring losses, buying interest of day-old chick was poor. Prices fell to RMB0.60-1/chick.


China breed broiler


Price movements in the China breed broiler markets were drastic. Prices tumbled 5% to 7% in the northern parts of China while sliding over 2% in the south due to dwindling demand. However, in the eastern market, prices surged over 6% over the week amid tight availability.

On average, China breed broiler prices dropped 1.7%.


Meanwhile, chick prices dipped further as farmers limited inventories to reduce risks.



Market forecast

Supplies of AA broiler are expected to decrease in the following week, but prices are unlikely to recover due to poor demand. For the native broiler market, demand is set to remain poor as reports of human infection of H7N9 bird flu re-emerge.
RMB=US$0.1471 (Jun 12)
