Bad weather impact makes it vital for the supply chain to work together

The poor UK harvest compounds a series of challenging weather events for farmers around the world, says the NFU, with a knock-on impact for poultry sector.

NFU director of corporate affairs Tom Hind said: “The volatility that we have been experiencing in feed costs recently has been unprecedented and likely to stay. Feed is the single biggest cost to poultry producers and many are reporting to me the significant outlay they are having to make to purchase feed compared to last year. It’s now really vital that the whole UK supply chain works together to ensure these additional costs farmers are facing are recognised or else we see a risk of critical mass in domestic production eroding.”
