A total of 1.6 million day-old-chick will be hatched every week, and that the company has a 50,000 tonnes of on-site storage and had outsourced similar storage volume.
The rural dweller are the main driving force behind the success of farming practices all over the world, because they consider it as the basic occupation which they could engage upon their livelihood. In Nigeria about seventy percent of it population engage in one form of farming or the other.
Also the total number of 1.6 million day-old-chick will be hatched every week, and the company has a 50,000 tonnes of on-site storage and had outsourced similar storage volume. the company was also engaged in the training of farmers to increase yields and profitability as well as provide employment, with I believe it will yield positive results at the end of the day.
In view of this, the federal government and some states interested, embarked on several policies in other to improve the quality of farming practices to the world standard. Lastly We most commend the effort effort of Governor El-rufai and Kaduna state government. Long live kaduna state, long live Nigeria.
