Like other industries the aim of poultry farmers is to obtain maximum profit from their
resources. Profitable production of broiler is necessary condition for farmer to remain in the
poultry industry. In this study due to importance of poultry farming an attempt has been made to
analyze profit level of small, medium and large scale poultry producers and obtain the most
proper size of poultry farm for the region under the investigation as far as profit is concerned.
Analyzing profit and loss account of different size poultry farms in eastern part of Golestan
province showed that 52% of poultry farms in the area were profit making units, 42% were loss
making units and 6% were active at the breakeven level. The results showed that the most
profitable capacity of poultry farms in the eastern part of Golestan province were units with
production capacity of 20000, analyzing loss making farms revealed that broiler farms with the
capacity of 30000 were making highest level of loss. The result also indicated that the highest level
of resistance against loss was shown by the broiler farms with the production capacity of 10000.
