An eFeedLink Exclusive
Price summary
Broiler prices were stable to lower.

Market analysis

AA broiler

AA broiler prices dipped further amid ample supplies and poor chicken product sales early in the week. Price declines, however, slowed by week’s end as slaughterhouses raised purchase prices to reduce farmers’ losses and spur replenishment to ensure future broiler supplies.
Meanwhile, day-old chick buying picked up slightly as integrators moved to stock up inventories for New Year holiday demand.
China breed broiler

China breed broiler prices were stable to slightly lower over the week, while buying interest for day-old chicks remained weak.

Market forecast

Broiler prices are expected to stay soft in the near term given slack demand for chicken products.
