Price summary

Prices were stable.



Market analysis

AA broiler

Prices of AA broiler stabilised of late as slaughterhouses restocked depleting inventories. Prices moved higher marginally, averaging 0.86%.

Day-old chick prices continued to fall amid slack buying interest, settling in the range of RMB2.95-3.65/kg.

China breed broiler 

Prices of China breed broiler rebounded almost 1% on average during the period in review, as sales increased after the live poultry markets reopened after the disinfection activities.

Nevertheless, the demand for day-old chicks remained weak, resulting in lower prices.


Market forecast

Broiler farmers are expected to stand firm on prices, which have dropped around 10% since August.  However the market will lack momentum to rebound strongly amid sluggish demand for chicken products.

RMB=US$0.1477 (October 31)
