Literature review
Literature Review

No integrated supply chain analysis of poultry.

A few studies covered some particular aspect of the chain in isolation.

Some focused on economic aspects

(Rahman, Sorensen, Jensen, and Dolberg, 1997; Newnham, 2000; Quasem, 2001; Dolberg, 2003; Islam, 2003)

A few focused on the epidemiological aspects

(Sil, Das, Islam, and Rahman, 2002; USAID-ATDP, 2005)

Objectives of the study
Objectives of the Study

In understanding the supply chain of poultry, this study examines:

Marketing channels and participants

Costs, margins and profits associated with marketing and the process of price formation

Possible channels through which poultry diseases spread and threaten bird and human lives.

Methodological approach
Methodological Approach

  • Five regions were selected based on poultry population: Chittagong, Comilla, Dhaka, Dinajpur and Jessore;

  • Quantitative techniques (interviews)

    • (i) on households,

    • (ii) beparis/farias,

    • (iii) wholesalers’ agents,

    • (iv) suburban retailers,

    • (v) urban wholesalers,

    • (vi) urban retailers of backyard chickensAND

    • (vii) poultry feed firms,

    • (viii) poultry hatcheries, (ix-x) broiler and layer farms, (xi-xiv) wholesalers and retailers of both broilers and eggs of commercial poultry

Methodological approach1
Methodological Approach

  • Qualitative information through

    • focus group discussions (FGDs),

    • key informant interviews (KIIs),

    • and observations of the markets on the market chains

Costs and returns of poultry
Costs and Returns of Poultry Wholesalers

  • Poultry farming is a highly profitable activity.

  • Owners of hatcheries, broiler and layer farms invest between 1 and 12 million taka and earn rate of returns close to and sometimes over 100 per cent.

  • At the backyard level an average poor household can earn 10 times of the initial investment.

  • Viewed from the size of the investment, commercial poultry farming does not appear to be pro-poor.

  • In contrast, backyard poultry needs hardly any financial capital and hence can make dent to poverty alleviation.

Policy recommendations
Policy Recommendations Wholesalers

  • Bio-security needs to be improved

  • Personnel involved in poultry operations should follow the standard hygiene practices

  • Use of uncovered vans should be restricted and transport vehicles should be routinely disinfected;

  • Use of antibiotics, enzymes and growth promoters has to be monitored;

  • Need for diagnostic facilities at in different regions;
