Price summary


Prices were mixed.




Market analysis

AA broiler

AA broiler prices continued to tumble, down by 1.6%, as supply exceeded sluggish post-festive demand for chicken. Over the past seven weeks, AA broiler prices have plunged 27%.

As farmers suffered deficits, sales of day-old chicks were poor, dragging prices down by RMB0.10-0.30/chick to a low of RMB0.45-0.70/chick.


China breed broiler


Despite slow post-festive sales, fast-growth native broiler market strengthened amid limited availability. Rising for the second week, China breed broiler prices increased 3.2% on average.

Nonetheless, farmers were not keen to expand inventories, resulting in lower chick prices.



Market forecast

Sluggish demand for chicken products will continue to weigh on AA broiler prices, putting a lid on the chick prices. However, prices falls of day-old chick will be limited at current low levels.
For China breed broiler, prices are seen stable to lower as buyers limit purchases.

RMB=US$0.1510 (Oct 19)
