Center-West plays a decisive role in Brazilian chicken output

In the past 25 years, chicken output in Brazil has increased almost fivefold, from 1.3 billion head in 1986 to 6.2 billion heads in 2011.

The South leads production, but the Center-West has been crucial. Last year, the volume produced by the four states in the region - Goiás, the Federal District, Mato Grosso, and Mato Grosso do Sul - was 35 times greater than recorded two and a half decades ago.

The industry has chosen the region for new units given its proximity to corn and soybeans, which form the lion’s share of production costs.
