Covid 19: Poultry sector set to collapse — PAN

The Poultry Association of Nigeria has warned that the effects of Covid-19 on the industry may soon lead to the total collapse of the sector.

According to the association, the industry “is under siege and may soon collapse” following the rising cost of maize and other inputs of the poultry feeds.

The PAN Chairman in Ogun State, Mrs Blessing Alawode, while addressing journalists in Abeokuta, says that it was high time the Federal Government rescued the industry to curb further economic crisis in the country.

She lamented that the prices of feed had constituted more than 75 per cent of the cost of production in the poultry industry.
