Agriculture minister: No decision yet on extension of subsidy for chicken rearers

ALOR SETAR, Feb 13 — The government has yet to decide whether to extend or not the subsidy for poultry farmers after June 4, said Agriculture and Food Industries Minister Datuk Seri Ronald Kiandee.

“The subsidy is given to ensure the price of chicken remains below RM8.90 per kilogram compared to the market price which can reach up to RM9.80 or RM9.90 per kilogram. Since we want to lower the price, the government needs to provide subsidy even if it will have a financial impact on the government.

Ronald said a new policy to encourage corn cultivation was being drafted to reduce the country’s dependence on imported corn for use as for animal feed as part of the effort to control chicken prices.
