« on: August 09, 2017, 06:49:28 PM »
One of the agricultural business ideas is poultry farming. Poultry business is one of the most profitable and lucrative business anybody can venture into. I am going to give you some of the reason why I myself consider poultry farming as one of the most profitable and lucrative business. The following are the three major reason why I consider poultry farming as one of the most profitable and lucrative business.
   One of the most important things in this life is food. Despite any economic situation people can do without food. In this area of food people need meat, this aspect has made poultry bird very important in the area of consumption. The more the consumption of poultry meat the more the poultry business will begin to strive.
   In some countries where there are a lot of population poultry farmers makes a lot of profit. So if you are in a country where there are so much population setting up a poultry business will really favor you.
   If you look at the current health awareness about the implication of eating a red meat, a lot of people now are currently eating white meat, this aspect has contributed to the growth and expansion of poultry business.
If you look at the following you will find out that there is need to start a poultry farming business in your country.

Now we are going to look at the step by step on what you need to take into consideration before you can start a poultry business.
The following are what you need to consider:
1.   Picking up a particular poultry niche: this aspect is very important. Poultry business itself is very wide. There are a lot of branches in poultry business. The following are some of the branches of poultry business:
   The production of egg(layers breeding)
   The production of meat(broilers breeding)
   The chicken breeding(hatchery)
   The production of poultry feeds
   The manufacturing of poultry equipment
   The processing, packaging and marketing of egg and meat
From what I have mention above you can see that poultry niche is very wide. You have to consider the particular one you want to venture into.
2.   The kind of animal bird you want to rear: this area is also is very important. Before you consider venturing into poultry business you have to know the kind of animal birds you want to rear. There are a lot of animal birds. The following are some of the animal birds you can choose to rear:

   Pigeon
   Chicken
   Duck
   Peacock
   Quail
   Goose
   Turkey

3.   You need a capital investment: another important area in setting up a poultry business is capital investment. You need a capital to setup the poultry business. You can apply for a loan in any bank or from private investors. Startup capital is very important in setting up a poultry business.
4.   Location and area: This aspect also is very important. It is good to setup your poultry farm in a very good location where there is population. Again is not good to setup your poultry farm in a residential area because of the odor that comes out from the farm, this may get your neighbors very angry. Again another thing you must consider in the location you want to setup your poultry farm is security. Make sure that there is security in that area.
5.   You need to get some poultry equipment and appliances: before you thing of setting up a poultry farm you need to get some poultry equipment and appliances. The following are some the equipment and appliances:
