AI impacted broiler meat sales in Sukabumi District

AI cases in 4 sub-districts of Sukabumi District impacted in the decrease of broiler meat sales. Broiler meat sellers said that consumers substitute their chicken meat consumption to fish and beef, and the price of broiler meat has also decreased from IDR35,000/kg to IDR28,000/kg. On the other hand, none of this happened in Cisaat Market, and the price is maintained at IDR32,000/kg. Head of Sukabumi Livestock Services Office said that supply of broiler meat is not affected since AI only happen in backyard which chickens are (legally) not vaccinated, unlike chickens in the commercial farms. Sukabumi’s sub-districts that affected are Tegalbuleud, Sagaranten, Cikidang, Kabandungan (4), out of 43 sub-districts of Sukabumi Districts.
