The federal government and the central bank of Nigeria (CBN) are currently joining effort to implement the ban on 40 items from importation into the country including frozen foods (chicken, fish etc) with action aimed at encouraging local production of products where the country has comparative advantage. Investors all over the country are now investing into poultry farming business following the increase in demand from local farmers (only) for frozen products of chicken. However, with this advancement in poultry farming also means and advancement in demand of poultry feed(s) also. The business of poultry farming owes 70% of its output to the availability of feed(s), invariably, no poultry farming can exist without availability of poultry feeds i.e. increase in the demand for chicken in Nigeria leads to increase in consumption of feed(s) and equally leads to increase in the poultry feed production business.

I have in one of my previous article discussed extensively on the need for you to invest into business of poultry farming as also presently encouraged by the federal government. in this article I would want to outline in details the business of poultry feed production which is proportional to that of poultry business for as though the federal government has banned the importation of frozen chicken she has not banned the consumption of it by the people and this consumption is now left for the local farmers, this local farmers invariable depends on feeds to trend successfully. So therefore going into feed(s) production for poultry birds, quails, pullets/layers, broilers, cockerel, duck, guinea fowls, geese etc therefore is a viable business. Currently emphasis is placed on encouraging indigenous feed enterprise as raw materials are easily sourced locally.
