Broiler breeding has a fairly bright prospect at this time, seen from the need for meat for consumption in Indonesia is quite large. Especially in the face of holidays such as Eid, Christmas and New Year.
Broiler chicken business opportunities are of course very tempting, but in trying to do this, farmers must be able to anticipate the problems that arise during the maintenance period.
As experienced by Heru, broiler chicken breeders from Bagorejo Village, Banyuwangi, even though the business of broiler chicken is very profitable if you cannot treat and protect it from disease, it is not the profit that you get but the loss.
Judging from experience, Heru, who has been in the business of broiler chicken for 15 years, is quite successful. “But right now, I only manage to fatten for the next 1-2 weeks before ready to be sold,” he said.
According to him, there is currently a lot of broiler business in Banyuwangi. Because of the high cost of feed, or disease disorder, many farmers sell young chickens or breeds that have only been cared for 2 weeks. “I bought the 2 weeks old hatchlings and I fattened them here so they are ready to be sold to the market,” he said.
