Blitar, East Java (Koran Sindo) – Layer chicken farmers throughout Blitar district in East Java province have boycotted animal feed producers who have expanded their business into commercial poultry production. Farmers have become increasingly frustrated as large investors started to produce chicken eggs. Demonstrating outside Blitar local government offices, farmers stated that feed producers were not only selling feed and day-old chickens. Large investors have also become involved in producing layer chickens which has resulted in the price of eggs in the market dropping dramatically. Egg production and demand are not in line with each other they claimed.
