There are about 25,000 broiler farms in various places in Tamil Nadu including Palladam, Sultanpet, Udumalaipettai, Pollachi, Erode and Namakkal. These farms produce an average of 15 lakh broilers daily and export to various districts of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Karnataka and Pondicherry.
Poultry farm purchase prices are set daily on behalf of the Poultry Coordinating Committee (PCC) in Palladam. It costs the producers between Rs.90 and Rs.93 to produce one kg of broiler. At present, the farm purchase price (selling price) is Rs.94 per kg.
Meanwhile, urban local elections are taking place in Tamil Nadu. Candidates from many parties are beginning to actively engage in vote-gathering in this election. In addition, many of the candidates who come with them to collect votes are offering homemade chicken biryani, chicken 65, etc., or ordering at hotels to cheer those who help them on the field.
Due to this, the consumption of broilers in Tamil Nadu is higher than usual. Also during the months of Karthika and Tai, all the devotees who wear evening wear have completed their fast. Currently, they are also seeking a broiler. Producers are happy that the purchase price of broilers has gone up.
