For the last two decades, demand for poultry meat has been soared, since it is healthier and less costly than its substitutes. In order to meet this increasing demand, integrated poultry organizations have been established all over the world. Usually, an integrated poultry organization has the divisions of breeder coops, incubation house, broiler coops, feed mill, slaughterhouse and marketing. This complex structure makes production planning activities more difficult for integrated poultry organizations. The aim of this study is to propose a production and financial planning model for Önder Integrated Poultry Incorporation using mathematical modelling techniques and statistical methods.
