The chairman of the Khorasan Razavi Poultry Farmers’ Union, emphasizing that new inputs can replace soybeans and corn, said: “In many developed countries of the world, by growing locusts and worms, they have been able to partially replace the processed product with corn and soybean inputs, but certainly To reach this point, we need to create infrastructure in the country. However, so far we have been able to reduce the consumption of corn and soybeans to provide poultry feed by replacing inputs such as rapeseed and fish meal.
“Currently, poultry farmers are reluctant to use alternative inputs because the price of alternative inputs such as rapeseed is higher than the price of soybeans and corn supplied with government currency,” he said.
“With the outbreak of the Corona virus and the closure of reception halls, we have seen a sharp decline in market demand,” he said. They can not freeze their production surplus to a large extent and have to offer it at a lower price, so the culture of using frozen chicken in the country must be reformed.
Boroughani added: “In September of this year, due to problems in supplying inputs, many poultry farmers left the production cycle, but some time ago, with the supply of inputs, these production units re-entered the poultry breeding cycle, and this increased supply.” And prices have fallen.
