The poster who stole my post probably does not have the farming experience and that is the reason why he could not give answer to the enquiry above about cost of feeding 1000 birds.

Obviously,he cannot defend it because he is not a farmer.Information marketing does not make one a farmer.Real farming experience does.
Am absolutely sure he is one of those armchair farmers who have no knowledge and experience yet parade as consultants,misleading people.
Am waiting for his defense.

The tendency of the average Nigerian investor is to set up a business on a foundation beyond his experience because he sees others doing it. He starts a poultry farm as a large investment of capital and stock which will require immense amounts of energy and funds to maintain which may be beyond his capability.

Some inexperienced investors have set up, misled by fantastic statistics which make them believe that poultry business is the quickest route to become a millionaire overnight.For example, i saw a thread at nairaland.com where a poultry promoter gave the impression that one can invest N500,000.00 in poultry and reap N5million in a year.This statistics is a deceit, misleading and an IMPOSSIBILITY in the present day Nigeria.Some starters rely on dubious statistics generated by some arm chair consultant.Some are attracted by the earning potentialities but give no thought to the other side of the coin.

Nigerians are enthusiastic about poultry farming and many are going into it. This is good news and this blog supports them by giving valuable insights usually overlooked or neglected but which are essential to success in the business. One mistake being made by many inexperienced starters is working out unrealistic profit expectations on paper.One needs to understand the factors or situations that makes realistic profit expectation realizable in poultry farming to be able to make a realistic income forecast.

The best advice is to start modestly on a small scale and in the process of managing it,the owner will be able to know how much can be made from the business.This was the advice given to a client who purchased some of the poultry reports on this blog.He has a large plot of land at Ibadan and was ready to set up a big farm based on the availability of funds.

He was advised to start with a small farm and from his experience would be able to decide later how to expand.He bought the suggestion and has set up a smaller farm.This way,experience can be gained without having to pay high prices for it as in a large first investment.That is the best way for an inexperienced starter to start a poultry farm.

If you are a green horn and have the financial capability to rear 5000 birds,you may start with 1000 in the first cycle.Based on experience and profits gained,increase the stock gradually, say every 6-12 months until the planned maximum capacity is achieved. You can use the profits earned in one cycle to commence another cycle.In my own opinion,it is not wise for a starter, a green horn to put in all the capital at once on a 5000 bird farm.You may go ahead anyway if you have adequate financial reserves to fall back on, have the right logistics in place and have the capacity for risk.

Many Nigerians are always in a haste to become owners of big businesses from inception.One Nigerian who got my poultry reports and sought my counsel,who had access to borrowed funds or a grant from an uncle wanted to set up a 2000 layer farm, a piggery and a fish farm all at once.He is a starter who has zero experience and no knowledge in all the three areas.My suggestion was that he set up one, master it before setting up another line.He was ready to invest the whole capital on the 3 areas at once. To me, it is too foolish a risk to take with borrowed funds without other reserves to fall back on.

There are some who have the money to invest in the business but do not have the time.They may have very limited or no poultry training and/or experience and their success in the business is tied to their ability to engage someone as manager to supervise the farm.The manager must be a trained, experienced and capable person who has the personality suited for the work. The personality requirements suited for the work include mental and physical abilities.

The personality requirements essential to success in poultry farming, expected of a hired employee manager include:

-Personal liking for the business
-Attention to details as the business is largely composed of details
-Ability to create your own system for the work,not to be tossed about by many.Stick to one.
-Ability to deploy common sense to take quick & correct decisions when necessary to avert disaster
Energy and Promptness
-Ability to concentrate time and attention on the work to ensure that no detail is neglected.

There are several other personality requirements but if your farm manager lacks the essentials stated above,it is clear that you may have placed your farm in the wrong hands.

@ Job Portal. You know what you are doing.

When it comes to business, there is no substitute for experience. No amount of paper work can replace experience. Am also a supporter of little starts. A wiseman does not start big. He starts little and subsequently grows big. Also a wiseman does not lay all his eggs in one basket. The ability of flexibility helps in business growth and survival. ''Slow and Steady'' is better than ''Once in a While''.

THE GREEN OIL WELL-Jatropha (Biofuel)
This is new in Nigeria & u can make a lot of money just by being a biofuel farmer. We at eesteeresources have Jatroha plantation, as i speak we set up farm for investors & buy back the seeds after 6 months of planting the 2 months old seedlings , we sell hybrid seedling @ N40 per stand,As a member of our farmers club, we write feasibility study on agric biz, send news letter, we help to rent private/ govt land@ less than N2,500 per acre we have 300 acres of arable land in the west for lease & some for sale to interested investors who are member of our farmer’s club-registration fee is N3,500 . Presently MTN uses biofuel to run their base stations all over the country, In this business there is no waste because both oil & shaft is marketable besides there are people who plant & use the biofuel to run their generator in Oyo state more so we have foreigners waiting to buy the cake. Jatropha plant seeds for up to 50 years & seed is ready for harvest when the plant is 8 months old , Jatropha seed cake can be mixed with energy sources such as maize to compound livestock feeds, and it is relatively cheap. The juice from the leaves can be used in the treatment and prevention of many ailments. The stem can be cut and used as a chewing stick to cure bleeding gums, smelling mouth and so on. Toothpaste can be produced from it. Presently in Nigeria ceiling board is produced from Jatropha, better than asbestos, they are environmentally friendly, very cheap and affordable
“Charcoal for bleaching palm oil for the production of oil used in the making of soaps and insecticides has been produced from Jatropha. The oil is not yet used for human consumption, but it can be used in the production of pesticides.
“Jatropha is a solution provider to the problem of climate change. One plant of Jatropha absorbs about 20 kilograms of carbon dioxide per year.If you want to know more buy our comprehensive jatropha proposal- 25k
1. As I speak the house has done the first reading of a bill to include Jatropha biofuel into our petrol (10-20)%. interested persons should please call Gbenga on 08182355047 or 08136650972 (9am to11pm-Monday to Saturday ,1pm to 11pm- Sunday) for more details- We are also into plantain, pineapple, palm tree, rubber ,moringa ,maize, cassava, vegetable ,melon ,watermelon ,cabbage plantation farm , you can also buy all kinds of seedlings from us. We also have quail, glasscutter, rabbit ,snail, ostrich ,Flightless-guinea fowl , imported turkey
2. Nigeria has no business importing food at all. We have everything; God has blessed this country. We have land, cheap labour, we have great sunshine and we have population to eat what we produce. Nigeria should not be importing food; Nigeria should be self-sufficient and should be a net exporting country for food

3. We also build incubators that use Jatrophat as fuel , infact we convert room to incubator. If you are a serious investor please call Gbenga on 08182355047 or 08136650972 (9am to 11pm-Monday to Saturday ,1pm to 11pm- Sunday)– Eesteeresources-agriculture-based entrepreneur.

It's not advisable to start poultry business on borrowed or leased land too. It's better to do your business on your own personal land, no matter how small.

Acres of land suitable for farming purposes are presently available around Moniya in Ibadan.

Good access road.

About 30mins drive from Moniya garage/market.

Price: 150k/acre.

Call Bami: 07032179911.
