For instance, an egg is sold at VND1,200-VND1,400. With such price, breeders will lose if they have not applied techniques to cut down expenses. 

Meantime, industrial chicken is sold at VND25,000 a kilogram at farms which can bring profits to farmers in the South yet their counterparts in the North suffer loss because industrial chicken is sold at VND 19,000 a kilogram.

Prices of chicken meat dropped because pork prices are down drastically. Moreover, the northern provinces are facing that much imported chicken meat from Korea is cheaper than domestic meat.
