Philippines assessing poultry industry flood damage
Tropical storm Ondoy blamed for possible losses to poultry industry
Tropical storm Ondoy is being blamed for flood damage in the poultry-producing areas of Central Luzon and Rizal in the Philippines, say reports.
The country’s Department of Agriculture is unable to make estimates regarding the damage extent at this time.
In 2006 the country was hit by typhoon Milenyo, making chicken imports necessary to meet demand.
