dc.description.abstractThis study aimed to determine the factors affecting production and profitability of broiler enterprises in the EravurPattu DS, Batticaloa District. It was based on primary data which were collected through a structured questionnaire. The sample consisted of forty broiler farmers selected through a system of random sampling. Analytical tools used were percentages, mean and regression models. The factors feed cost, price of purchased chick, medical cost and Feed Conversion Efficiency had significant effect on profitability while labour cost had a negative impact. The factors affecting broiler production significantly were cost of feed, quantity of feed consumed, and day old chick costs but capital investment had a negative impact. It is recommended that feed subsidies by the government, provision of adequate supporting services, releasing of loans to farmers, and organizing trainings to increase awareness on profitability of broiler production would help develop the industry in Eravur Pattu DS division.en_US
