Report: Demand for day-old chicks increase. Livestock and
Meat Advisory Council (LMAC) has said the demand for day-
old chicks has surged in the recent months which has
prompted LMAC to lobby for the importation of hatching eggs
to boost supply before the onset of the festive season,
Chronicle reports
While requesting the government to temporarily lift the import
duty on fertilised eggs, LMAC said: As a result of the impact
of prevailing macro-economic conditions and Covid-19
response measures, demand for day-old chicks declined
significantly and production dropped by 28 per cent between
the first and second quarters of 2020 As the poultry business
opens up again, the demand is steadily increasing.
The import of hatching eggs is, therefore, necessary to
alleviate the short supply and ensure availability of day-old
chicks going into the festive season, where demand is usually
the highest
LMAC also gave the following statistics about egg production
in the country according to the publication: A total of 74-
million-day-old broiler chicks were produced last year
reflecting, a 19 per cent decline from the 91 million chicks
produced in 2018.
There was an estimated 24 per cent increase in table egg
production recorded in 2019 (50,4 million dozen) compared to
36,4 million dozen the previous year Broiler day-old chick
production averaged 6,2 million chicks a month with a total
annual production of 74 million in 2019.
