Poultry-feed prices continued to rule unchanged despite a downtrend in the prices of key ingredients.

Aditya Mishra, an expert, told Business Line that though there has been a fall in prices of key ingredients, it has not made much impact on the cost of production.

Any major alteration in prices of key ingredient is unlikely and feed prices may continue to rule around current levels in the coming days, he said.
