Product Description

Poultry farming has existed since society began. The industry, like other branches of agriculture in Nigeria, forms the basis of our culture. It is a way of life. It started from the subsistence level where people reared birds for domestic purposes and over time, it developed into a means of earning an income.

In the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, there were pockets of smallholder farmers, but today, it has rapidly evolved. Perhaps, not as advanced as the countries in the Western clime, but in Nigeria, there are more large-scale poultry farmers who, beyond chicken, are exploring rearing exotic birds like turkey, ostrich, and more. About 85 million Nigerians are into poultry farming, with a larger percentage operating on a small to medium scale.

At 21 billion eggs per annum, Nigeria is the biggest egg producer in Africa and the second largest in chicken production, totaling about 180 million birds. Irrespective of this, local production meets only 30% of the nation’s need for eggs and meat. This is a great opportunity for more poultry farmers to enter the industry.
