U.N. data on Tuesday showed that U.A.E. poultry production dropped to just 3.4 million birds for the month of October from 4.6 million a month earlier, despite record levels of imports.
The poultry sector in the U.K., which relies heavily on exports to the U, fell to 1.4 billion birds in October from 2.3 billion in September, the latest report by the U in the World Food Programme said.
That is the lowest level since the U started collecting data in 1996, and down from 2 billion in 2011.
The U.G.P.P., which includes Canada, the U of A., the U New Zealand, the Philippines, Thailand and Malaysia, also fell.
The U.U. of A. reported its biggest fall since 2004.
U.C. Berkeley’s Agriculture Research Institute reported that UCD, California, the University of California Davis and UC Berkeley in California had lost the most birds in the last three months.
The Agriculture Research Council, a nonprofit research organization based in Washington, also said its poultry data showed declines in all-fowl, poultry and egg production.
The USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service said its data showed that in October the UCA’s poultry and eggs production had dropped 2.5 percent, from 7.1 million birds in September to 6.9 million.
That compares with a 2.8 percent drop for all-caught poultry, which includes all bird species.
It was down from 7 million in September.
