Brazil – Egg and Poultry Production

USDA-LogoBrazil’s broiler production is expected to recover and grow 2% in 2013 after a 1% decline in 2012. General opinion among trade sources is that Brazil’s economic growth is expected to recover from the poor result of 2012 and that estimated record Brazilian soybean and corn crops should help to mitigate the impact of rising feed costs. However, sources also identify other concerns that can adversely affect the poultry sector this year: a) squeezed profit margins for producers and processors due to rising feed costs may continue through the first half of this year; b) the high level of consumer debt in Brazil may also undercut domestic demand of animal proteins in general, and c) broiler exports are forecast to increase slowly because of the continued uncertainties in the world economy.
