Agricultural programme manager advises poultry farmers on purchasing chicks


Mr. Onyema Nwodo, the Programme Manager, Enugu State Agricultural Development Programme (ENADP)  has advised poultry farmers to start preparing their chicken for December sales early.

Nwodo said in Enugu that the farmers should purchase day-old broilers around October so that they mature for sale in December, adding that three months is enough to prepare very good broilers against December sales.

He said the advice became imperative because of the high demand for poultry products in the area in December.

He  also added that some farmers in Enugu had also embraced cattle fattening, so they too should start rearing in August.
