Small scale poultry farmers in dilemma

Small scale poultry farmers are leaving their industries due to shortage of feed and maize supplies, All Island Farmers’ Association National Organizer Namal Karunarathna complained.

Speaking at a media briefing on Sunday, he said the shortage of chickens and eggs would also be a major blow to those involved in the hotel and tourism industry.

“If the Government cannot find a solution to feed the birds, there will be a massive downfall in poultry production,” he added. He said people are buying chicken because of the high price of vegetables.
