Abstract

Because the profit per bird is usually small, large numbers must be reared and marketed to give a worthwhile income from poultry meat production. Factors such as feed and labour costs, the degree of cheapness or availability of other meats— and similar influences over which the poultry meat producer has little or no control— are liable to bring about unpredictable variations in returns over a period.
