Poultry farmers want direct procurement of eggs
Tamil Nadu Poultry Farmers Association has urged the State government to procure eggs for the noon meal scheme directly from the farmers which was followed three years ago.
The silver jubilee celebrations, general body meeting and installation of new office-bearers were held here on Wednesday.Poultry farmers were directly supplying eggs for the noon meal scheme at low price for many years.
For the past four years, State level tender system was introduced and eggs were procured at higher price leading to poultry farmers not receiving reasonable price for eggs. He wanted the State government to procure eggs directly from the farmers from next year so that the poultry industry could survive.
Due to prevailing water scarcity, water is being purchased through lorries and supplied to poultries.But village administrative officers are intercepting the lorries and are not allowing the water to be transported.
