Price summary

Market analysis

AA broiler


After rising 9% in two weeks, AA broiler demand softened as slaughterhouses turned cautious as prices hit new highs for the year. On average, AA broiler prices dropped 0.26% over the week.

Meanwhile, record high prices of chicks discouraged pen building, dragging prices down by RMB0.10-0.20/chick to the range of RB6.20-6.40/chick.

China breed broiler

Fast-growth native broiler prices strengthened 1.2% on stable demand. Prices of hybrid broiler were mixed, averaging a nominal rise of 0.65% over the week.

Prices of native chicks were soft as farmers were not keen to expand inventories. Nonetheless, prices were mainly stable due to limited chick production.


Market forecast


As prices of AA broiler approach historic highs, slaughterhouses will limit stockpiles to be on the safe side. However, with supplies tight AA broiler market will remain firm. Chick prices should stay stable with production low.

Native broiler prices are seen stable to lower, putting a lid on the chick prices.

RMB=US$0.1438 (Nov 28)
