Farm-Gate Minimum Live Price

The Farm-Gate Minimum Live Price for chicken in Ontario is established under Regulation 402 of the Farm Products Marketing Act and brought into force by the Ontario Farm Products Marketing Commission every eight weeks. The Farm-Gate Minimum Live Price represents the price paid per kilogram of conventional chicken, calculated based on an average bird size of 2.225kg.

The Farm-Gate Minimum Live Price is adjusted for changes in feed and chick prices every quota period, while all other costs except Depreciation, Farm Vehicle and Levies and Licence Fees are updated annually in the first full quota period of each year.
