Pig and chicken producers report a 28% increase in soybean meal prices

Pig and broiler chicken producers in Santa Cruz declare an emergency due to the 28% increase in the price of soybean flour. It is a decisive blow to the sector since this input represents between 15% and 20% in the cost of production and will impact on the reduction of chicken supply because it will encourage the closure of farms and the other direct consequence will be unemployment.
