Market Analysis
 
The government of India on Friday (December 26) approved the setting up of National Meat and Poultry Processing Board with an initial investment of Rs. 146.4 million allocated over a period of three years. The board will be headquartered at Delhi.
 
"The board, which will be autonomous, will be initially facilitated by the government and will be subsequently managed by the industry and is expected to boost growth of the sector, benefiting both the producers and processors," the Home Minister, P. Chidambaram, said.
 
The board would assist the industry in setting up or modernizing abattoirs through technical consultancy for production of hygienic meat and its products, he explained.
 
Bird flu spreads to more areas in Assam
 
Bird flu has spread to new areas in Assam where culling of poultry has been going on since November 27. Over 0.5 million chicken and ducks have been culled in the state.
 
Sources in the Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Department said cases of fresh bird flu attacks were reported at Manahkuchi of Hajo and Chayani Barduar block in Kamrup (Rural) district, where the disease was first detected.
 
Other fresh areas to be hit by the virus are Tihu-Barama of Baksa district, Chachaligaon Burachowk village in Nagaon district, Rangamati, Aurpakmoniari Tiniali in Kamrup (Metro) district and Doloigaon Uzanpara in Bongaigaon district, the sources said.
 
Culling operations were initiated in the three-km radius area of the new bird flu-hit notified centers, while it continued in the previously notified areas.
 
With seven new locations notified, so far 19 epicenters were officially stated to be affected by avian flu in seven districts of Assam.
 
Nearly 150 villages have been declared bird flu-hit, for which 1,720 rapid response teams were deployed.
 
Almost 0.2 million eggs and 14, 000 kg of bird feed have been destroyed since the beginning of culling.  Culling, mopping and disinfection operations were completed in nine centers of Kharghuli and Khanapara in Guwahati, Dibrugarh town, Rajabazar, Sarpara, Patgaon, Kathla, Katajhar and Bejerajalah.
 
Labs to test bird flu samples
 
The central government of India has decided to set up four new laboratories including the Namakkal laboratory in the country to detect bird flu virus, a top official in the Union Animal Husbandry Ministry said.
 
"The central government has appointed a UN agency for the purpose. The tender process for setting up the laboratories would be completed by February 2009 and work is expected to commerce by June 2009," joint secretary, Animal Husbandry and Fisheries, Arvind Ghoshal, said. 
 
 
Market Forecast
 
In the week ahead, due to arrival of winter season, demand in the poultry market would stabilize or strengthen in the coming days. Broiler and eggs prices may also be in increasing mode compared to present week's level. 
 
Aided by falling supplies, corn prices are higher or steady on strong demand amid rise in arrivals.
 
Soy prices are firm on good domestic demand amid decrease in arrivals. Strong exports amid global shortages in edible oil may result in firm trading in futures.
