The Upper West Region has been met with shortage of eggs for the past 4 days as a result of several factors.
According to poultry farmers in Upper West Region, this is as a result of shortage of feed for these birds in the town and neighboring environments, they explained that price of maize has shot up and as a result the quantity usually purchased has dropped drastically resulting in marginal losses that has brought about reduction in the number of eggs laid by these fowls in a fortnight.
They also attributed the shortage to the weather highlighting that the harmattan weather in the Northern or Guinea Savannah zone hasn't always been favorable to foreign breeds of birds in the Upper West Region and as a result most of these fowl die abruptly causing a huge loss to entrepreneurs.
They urged their fellow farmers in crop production to assist them to deliver more services to the public.
