Poultry Industries of Bangladesh

It was in 1995 that the poultry industry started in an organized manner in Bangladesh.  In  just  16  years  the industry has seen exponential growth. Investment in the sector stands at about 20 thousand crore taka. Its growth rate is about 20%. There are over a hundred thousand poultry farms, small and large,
across the country, eight grandparent stock farms, 130 parent stock farms and hatcheries, and 50 or 60 poultry feed mills.  About  five  million  people  are involved, directly and indirectly, with the industry and approximately 50% of them are  women.  A  large  section  of  the marginalised rural people earns their living through this industry. Of the 18.6% of  the  GDP  which  comes  from  the agricultural sector, one third is from the poultry industry. Credit certainly goes to the private sector entrepreneurs in this sector.  However,  now  the  poultry industry  has  been  pitched  into uncertainty and the question is how long will these entrepreneurs be able to hold on to their success?
