|Heliculture Is Another Intersting, Thriving And Profitable Agribusiness . by Bhorbymills1990: 6:58pm On Jun 30|
Are you an unemployed graduate or did you just retire from paid employment and you are aspiring to own a business? If you answer yes, I advice you to invest in snail farming and turn your backyard garden to snail haven. I knew that backyard snail breeding can take many people out of unemployment..
Snails are very easy to rear. They do not bite, kick, bark, sting or harm and they don’t mess up the environment like other livestock. Snail farming is a business that does not require millions of naira. If land/space like one room size is available, then you don’t have problem.
15months snail (Archachatina marginata specie) is sold around N350 - N500
In addition, you do not buy food for snails like you do in fish farming, pig farming, poultry farming, and the rest . They are hermaphrodites having both male and female reproductive organs and this means that all the snails in the farm will be busy laying eggs year in year out.
Anyone can start snail farming and make profit within eight months . At the end of the day, one snail can produce atleast 50-young snails in a year, Snails are noiseless, odourless and very cheap to rear.
The profit in sail farming is encouraging because each Archachatina Marginata snail under suitable environmental and climatic conditions can produce at least 100 eggs per clutch and will lay eggs 2 - 5 times in a year and a small scale farmer can keep at least 300 snail breeders and make profit.
Therefore, 300 snails can produce about 28,000 eggs in a year with at least 50 percent success, 12,500 hatched eggs can grow to adult snails within 15 months , with 5,000 adult snails suitable for consumption at N350 per snail grin grin
Do the maths and thank me later
Snail farming is profitable and millions of jobs can be created through snail business alone.
Sadly, Nigerian preference and rush for oil money has led to the utter neglect of this lucrative agricultural enterprise. The time is right to utilize a natural food resource that is literally at your feet. Pen or free range snail farming is not a hobby, it is a serious business that yields good financial reward within 15 Months
It does not have high cholesterol, in most cases doctors recommend it to people who have heart condition, and the demand for snail meat is so high.
They can be fried, roasted and or prepared as the popular pepper soup and served in big hotels, restaurants, eateries as well as some joints patronized by middle to high level people.
People find it difficult to get the fast growing specie of African Giant Snails (Archachatina Marginata) suitable for domestic rearing.
The archachatina marginata snail specie has very high market value of local consumption or for export.
Started as a hobby but i realised it's a very lucrative business that you can earn thousands or millions of Naira from
As unemployment increases with more jobs being threatened, people keep seeking for things to do. Besides their jobs it will help support the family income, yet would not take much of your time. And, since 70 per cent of Nigerians live below one dollar/a day, it only make sense to put time, resources and energy into other productive areas. And snail farming, because of its almost zero production cost has proven to be one of such areas.
Lay more emphasis on how to produce very cheap food supplement that will enable them grow faster and heavier .
