Abstract:

The present study was conducted on 120 broiler farmers (60 contract and 60 non-contract) randomly selected from four blocks of Azamgarh and Varanasi districts of Uttar Pradesh, to assess and compare the production and profitability under contract and non-contract broiler farming systems. The information was collected with the help of a pre-tested structured interview schedule developed for the purpose. The results revealed that majority of contract as well as non-contract broiler farmers had medium (4-6) production cycle per year and small flock size (2000-5300). The average number of production cycle per year and flock size of contract broiler farmers (6.27 and 4913.33) was more than that of non-contract broiler farmers (5.32 and 4285). Majority of contract broiler farmers had small mortality (up to 4%) whereas non-contract broiler farmers had medium mortality (4-6%). The average weight of marketable birds under contract broiler farming system was 2.08 kg, which was more than non-contract broiler farming system (1.82 kg) and the average length of production cycle under contract broiler farming systems was 40.5 days which was less than non-contract broiler farming system (45.40 days). The average net return per bird in non-contract broiler farming system (Rs. 12.96) was higher than contract broiler farming system (Rs. 8.11).
