Food Safety Project (Mandalay) will contribute funds to develop poultry farm system for indigenous chicken in three townships of Mandalay Region to improve breeders’ interests.
The farm system is implemented under the guidance of Mandalay Region government.
The FSP will provide K500,000 per farm to the breeders of native breeds in three townships in the current financial year 2020-2021, to ensure food safety. The project covers ten farms of native chicken in Patheingyi Township, 10 in Kyaukse Township and 10 in Sintgaing Township, said Food Safety Project Director U Kyin Maung. “We aim to offer antibiotic-free chicken and ensure food safety. Antibiotic use in poultry production can lead to multi-drug resistance. That is the reason we are adopting a poultry farm system for native breeds. Indigenous chicken is adapted to a free-range production system. The FSP provides fund for breeders to build farm. The breeders can increase income, and they can easily give an eye drop vaccine to chicken on the farm. The businesses are temporarily suspended amid the COVID-19,” he elaborated.
The FSP also provided technical assistance to the poultry farmers in the previous financial years, covering 20 farms in Madaya Township, 20 in Amarapura Township, 16 in Myingyan Township, and TadaU Township. —Ko Thwin (Mandalay) (Translated by Ei Myat Mon)
