Abstract:

The present study was carried out in Udaipur and Ajmer districts of Rajasthan. The primary data were collected from ten poultry farms from each district through a well structured questionnaire. The results revealed that the most popular marketing channel in Udaipur district was identified as channel-III (Producer-Wholesaler-Retailer-Consumer) for both broilers as well as eggs marketing, while in case of Ajmer district channel-V (Producer-Super market-Consumer) and channel-III (Producer Wholesaler-Retailer-Consumer) has been found as best for broilers and eggs, respectively. The per cent average broiler sold through this channel is 30.26 per cent and 26.45 per cent is sold through channel-V in Ajmer. The per cent average egg marketed through popular marketing channel of Udaipur and Ajmer district was 33.67 and 21.85, respectively. Major constraints faced by poultry producers were identified as high cost of feed, day old chicks, medicine and veterinary charges, high disease incidence, high fluctuations in selling prices, high rate of mortality, high cost of variable inputs, high cost of establishment, non-availability of government policies and subsidies and non-availability of resources has been found as major problems in poultry production.
