The fall in the demand for eggs amid rising heat has led to a decline in the demand for poultry farming.PoultryFarmingIt has increased the problems of the farmers to a great extent. Due to lack of demand, traders are being forced to sell eggs prepared in poultry farms for 2 to 3 rupees. If we look at the current price, the price of eggs has come down by 30 percent to 40 percent. Unable to meet the cost, poultry farmers are protesting from place to place. They are demanding to fix a minimum price of eggs so that they can avoid huge losses if the prices fall. If you look at the price of eggs in the main egg markets of the country, then on Thursday, the price in Barwala Mandi is Rs 300 per hundred, while in Delhi today’s rate is Rs 340 per hundred. The highest price is Rs 400 per hundred in Surat.
Balkishan Reddy, a farmer and poultry farmer from Telangana, says that only the rates set by the National Coordination Committee (NECC) are considered as buyers. But when they come to us, they refer to the market and buy at a lower price than that. Two days ago, we sold eggs for Rs 2 and 70 paise. After that, now I am able to sell only 300 rupees, while its cost increases in summer. The price of maize has reached Rs 2600 per quintal. At the same time, soybean is Rs 8000 to 10,000 per quintal. In summer, 24 hours electricity has to be arranged to save the chickens. People associated with the poultry business say that the cost of an egg should be at least 4 rupees 50 paise, but we are forced to sell it at 1.5 rupees less.

The officers are assuming the demand responsible
Chief Operating Officer, National Coordination Committee, Hyderabad, Dr. Kumar told Connexionblog Digital that farmers are not getting the right price at this time. The reason behind this is a huge gap in demand and supply. In the last days, due to Chaitra Navratri and other festivals in North India, the market almost came to a standstill. Now there is supply, but there is not much demand. Hopefully after a few days the situation will be normal. The farmers’ agitation has ended in Odisha, where 84 trucks of eggs coming from Andhra Pradesh were stopped.
