Let's take a look at the underlying data.
About 60% of the cost of producing chicken meat is the cost of the feed. Corn and soybean meal are usually two of the main components in chicken feed. Here is some USA data on the price comparison between Chicago Board of Trade ("CBOT") 48% soybean meal and whole fresh chicken at the dock in Georgia USA. As you can see, chicken-soya ratio is dropping, meaning better & better yields and efficiency.
I suggest Chicken Farmers of Ontario ("CFO") has some explaining to do. Does anybody at CFO look at data like this? If not, why not? Isn't that something they should be doing, helping to explain trends to their member farmers, and help them decide that this is important, and needs to be addressed.
Does CFO even care?
Is CFO chicken of facing the truth?
Or does CFO prefer to stick their head in the sand like an ostrich?
