Industry continues to grow with national allocations of +5.0% for A-145 and A-146

BURLINGTON, ON - May 5, 2017 - National allocations for A-145 (Aug 6 – Sept 30) and A-146 (Oct 1 – Nov 25) are both set at +5.0% relative to adjusted bases at the Chicken Farmers of Canada (CFC) meeting on May 3, 2017 in Ottawa.
Chicken Farmers of Ontario (CFO) provided its recommendation for national allocation to CFC of +6% above adjusted base for A-145 and A-146.  As in prior periods CFO’s recommendation had been framed on a public policy of “balanced best interest” and based on an analysis of the market and an assessment of the demand and supply opportunities as well as potential risks to the market.

The CFC Board approved national allocations of +5.0% over the adjusted base for A-145 and A-146. The volumes, in eviscerated kilograms, for Ontario and Canada as calculated by the allocation formula are: 

A-145 61,763,611 5.8% 181,479,896 5.0%
A-146 60,990,914 5.8% 178,777,635 5.0%
Ontario anticipates volume allocations for A-147 and A-148 will be set at the August 15, 2017 Board meeting.
