Price summary

 

Prices were lower.
 
 


Market analysis

 

AA broiler
 

Cautious slaughterhouses were reluctant to stock high inventories as the demand for chicken products was inconsistent. Hence, after the recent week's move higher, broiler prices softened amid weakened buying interest.

 

On average, AA broiler prices dipped 1.2%, almost paring all gains in the previous week.

 

Demand for AA chick was not exceptionally strong, but prices surged to the range of RMB3.50-4.40/bird amid lower hatchery production.

 

China breed broiler 
                                            

Demand for China breed broiler was slower than expected as buyers held back procurements. Prices slid 1.5% on average over the week.

 

Prices of day-old chicks consolidated lower following the recent week's prominent rise.

 
 

Market forecast

 
Demand for chicken is expected to strengthen as schools open after the summer holidays, hence lending some support to the broiler market. However, with supplies set to increase, price hikes are unlikely to be strong.
  
RMB=US$0.1497 (Sep 1)
