Declining egg production in Kazakhstan has pushed up the price of this product.
Estimates by the Kazakh Poultry Farmers Union show that egg production in the country has dropped by an average of 20 percent.
According to published reports, egg prices have risen by more than 50 percent in some parts of the country.
Some activists in the poultry industry believe that the death toll due to the outbreak of bird flu has played an important role in such a situation.
The Kazakh Ministry of Agriculture blamed a 10 to 20 percent increase in poultry feed prices.
The incident took place under the circumstances that the country’s borders with Russia have been closed due to the outbreak of Avian Influenza.
A group of poultry farmers on social media accuses the Kazakh Ministry of Agriculture of mismanagement in this area.
