By using an abstract existence result based on a coincidence degree theory for -set contractive mapping, a new result is obtained for the existence of at least two positive periodic solutions for a neutral multidelay logarithmic population model with a periodic harvesting rate. An example is given to illustrate the effectiveness of the result.
