    Hi guys,

    I'm thinking of starting my own broiler farm but I'm bit stuck on the cost analysis especially the broiler feeds...since most of you guys are in the poultry business I'm guessing you all can help....

    So what i wanted to know is:

    1-what the average cost of starters/finishers feeds per ton? is $500/per ton is a reasonable price?

    2-what the average feed consumption per chicken (up-to 9 weeks)?

    Please advice

    Many thanks

    I know there are some mega-producers on BYC. One of them is Macinabilene- you can do a search for him and PM him if no one answers your question. He knows all. [​IMG]
