Feed: a major constraint to poultry industry, ministry says
– Ramsammy issues warning
The Ministry of Agriculture will tomorrow hold a consultation with experts on a major constraint facing the poultry industry – the availability of quality stock feed – and Minister Leslie Ramsammy warned that he will ensure that all laws are complied with, a statement apparently aimed at Guyana Stockfeeds Limited.
In a statement yesterday, Ramsammy said that chicken production for the first half of this year was up 9% compared to last year but he said that farmers were complaining about the cost, availability and quality of stock feed. He added that prices have been pushed up without any notice to farmers or the ministry.
