Sri Lanka gives assistance to poultry farmers
The Sabaragamuwa Provincial Council (PC) will soon
take steps to encourage the poultry farmers in both Kegalle and Ratnapura
districts by providing the necessary facilities.
The Minister of Agrarian Services and
of Sabaragamuwa PC, Ranjith Soysa, pointed out that the prices of eggs
and poultry products have risen in proportion to the decreased production of
eggs and poultry products. Both the Kegalle and Ratnapura districts lack
sufficient poultry farms to supply eggs and other poultry products to meet the
demand of the consumers.
Therefore, Soysa proposes to supply all needed chicks and cheap poultry
food to the existing poultry farms at very cheap rates, and to provide easy term
loans to those interested in opening up new poultry farms.
This should contribute immensely in multiplying the number of poultry farms
in both districts before long. With the increase of production the prices of
eggs and chicken will come down as well as creating employment
