More poultry export markets opening to US producers

Because of the avian influenza outbreak of 2015, many exports markets closed for US poultry producers. When those markets close down the US has more leg quarters than it needs and the price goes down and increases the breakeven market for breast meat. We are hoping the restrictions aren’t any worse than last year, and in the next 18 months, the markets will continue to open for US chicken, according to Poultry Economist, Dr, Paul Aho at the 2016 IPPE show.
