This study is to give an alternative of an optimum inventory model for chicken egg livestock industry. The characteristic of the egg livestock industry is very unique; since the chicken breeding performance varies. In a particular span of time, the industry might have ameliorating and deteriorating characteristics. Some farmers nourish several generations at the same time. This study generates a mathematical model to optimize the length time between purchases of a chicken generation to get optimum cost by considering demand seasonality. This study is also generating the algorithm to find the optimum solution in a simple way. Future potential researches are also stated.

Keywords: Optimization, inventory, egg, chicken, ameliorating
