The Marine and Environmental Science Institute (MESI) at The College of The Bahamas was established in 2005 as a scientific research and development division of The College of The Bahamas. The MESI faces a unique challenge to develop scientific research that can support the national initiatives for sustainable development of small island states (Figure 1). The Poultry Research Unit (PRU) has been part of the MESI since 2005, with the primary focus of the Unit being the development of poultry research needed to build new agricultural technologies and production models appropriate for small islands. The PRU is part of the research community of the MESI located within the new Office of Research, Graduate Programmes and International Relations (ORGPIR). Preliminary talks have started to develop research partnerships with large research universities in the southeastern United States and the United Kingdom for poultry nutrition projects. Over the past year, the PRU goals were to: 1. Develop better small-scale poultry production models; 2. Improve the nutritional value of broiler chickens; and 3. reduce the environmental impacts of intensive poultry farming. The programmes initiated at the PRU are designed to improve animal health and animal husbandry practices. The PRU participated in meetings with the Caribbean Poultry Association to understand the regional threat of Avian Influenza, and took steps to improve bio-security protocols. Bio-security in poultry production will become more important as the PRU staff works to increase production and product quality while minimizing the use of antibiotics and growth stimulants. Major changes have occurred in the organization of the PRU over the past year: • The poultry technician assigned from the Department of Agriculture was given an additional (third) year of secondment with the intention that he would join the staff of COB full-time in August 2007. This staff member was able to pursue a Master’s in Poultry Sciences at the University of Glasgow’s Scottish Agricultural College with an anticipated completion date of June 2008. With this additional expertise, the PRU is now ready to start pro-biotic research on growth enhancement for broiler production in the 2007-2008 academic year;

Investigating Financial Management Practices Towards Sustainable Growth. A Case Study of Small and Medium Poultry Enterprises in Kafue District Zambia

Rajesh Mehta

India’s poultry industry represents a major success story. While agricultural production has been rising at the rate around 2 percent per annum over the past two to three decades, poultry production has been rising at the rate of around 8 percent per annum, with an annual turnover of US$ 7 500 million. This paper seeks to capture the dynamics of the industry over the more recent past. Utilizing production, price and export data from the period 1995 to 2004, the study seeks to: (a) examine the trends and features of development in Indian poultry over the last ten years or so; (b) identify forces that are driving these changes; (c) predict the structure of developments in the poultry sector, over the next ten or fifteen years and trace its consequences for income, employment, public health, environmental pollution, animal wealth, etc.; and (d) shed some light on how smallholders are likely to be affected by the ongoing structural changes, i.e. whether it will seriously undermine their competitiveness, and if so what are the options available. The analysis shows a sharp jump in India’s egg and poultry meat production. Poultry meat has outpaced its two major competitors – beef and veal, and buffalo meat. Another major development in Indian poultry production is the spread of integration, which is occurring very rapidly, especially in broiler production, both in southern and western parts of India. The forces that are sustaining this growth are many. High per capita income growth and relatively low prices have played a catalytic role. A moderate shift in the consumption pattern from vegetarianism to non-vegetarianism is also helping the industry by increasing the demand for poultry products. The future outlook for Indian poultry also appears to be very favourable. The most conservative estimates predict a two- to three-fold increase in poultry production over the next ten or fifteen years. However, a worrisome feature of the accelerated growth and the ongoing structural change seems to be its potential impact on the future of small and marginal producers. While several studies on the theme have contended that vertical coordination in agricultural supply channels helps to lower the transaction costs and market risk of smallholders, it has proved difficult to support the contention in the case of poultry. Drawing on an earlier study conducted by the first author, it is shown that contract farmers earned lower profits than non-contract farmers. In this study, we draw three alternative scenarios and trace their implications, using the OECD-FAO Agricultural Outlook AGLINK-COSIMO model. First, we assume that import of maize, the main feed ingredient, is liberalized. Second, we study the consequences of import liberalization of poultry meat and eggs. Third, we evaluate the consequences of an outbreak of avian influenza (AI). The complete elimination of tariff on maize will not affect India’s imports, because domestic prices (plus tariff) are less than world prices. A complete liberalization of imports of poultry meat could be disastrous for the domestic poultry industry – production would fall significantly; however, the consumer price would decline leading to increased consumption. The consequences of an outbreak of AI would be a significant decline in consumer price and the level of consumer demand. However, prices would revert to their normal trend within a year, and the level of consumer demand would return to normal within a year.

Business Model

The Broiler Poultry Farming Business Model revolves around a straightforward yet highly profitable process. It all begins with the purchase of day-old chicks, which serve as the foundation of your broiler flock. These chicks are carefully selected for their genetic potential to achieve rapid growth and efficient meat production. Once in your care, you provide them with the appropriate housing, ensuring optimal conditions for their growth and development. A crucial aspect of broiler farming is the efficient management of their diet, as the major expenses in this venture are attributed to the cost of day-old chicks and feed.

As the chicks grow, typically within a span of 5-7 weeks, they reach maturity, and this is when you can reap the rewards of your efforts. The broilers can be sold in two main forms: as live birds or as dressed birds, depending on the preferences of your target market. The revenue generated from selling these mature broilers significantly exceeds the input costs and operational expenses, resulting in a healthy profit margin. What makes this business model particularly attractive is its repetitiveness throughout the year, allowing you to maintain a consistent stream of income by continually raising and selling batches of broilers. This cyclical approach to broiler farming ensures financial stability and growth in your poultry venture.

Land for Broiler Poultry Farming

Selecting the right land is a fundamental step in establishing a successful broiler poultry farming operation. The choice of land can significantly impact the efficiency and profitability of your venture. When acquiring land for broiler poultry farming, it’s crucial to consider several key factors. Firstly, the location and accessibility of the land are paramount. The site should be easily reachable by road to facilitate the transportation of feed, day-old chicks, and mature birds, while also being situated at a distance away from residential or industrial areas to avoid unwanted noise and odors for neighboring inhabitants. Proximity to markets and suppliers can also reduce logistical challenges and costs.

Furthermore, ensure that sufficient water supply is readily available at the broiler farm, as water is essential for the health and well-being of the birds. Access to electricity is equally important to power the necessary equipment and lighting systems. To mitigate the risk of flooding, it’s advisable to construct the broiler house on elevated land with proper drainage systems in place. Low-lying areas should be avoided, as they are prone to flooding and can jeopardize the safety and well-being of your broiler flock. Also consider the availability of affordable labor, as staffing costs can significantly impact the profitability of your broiler chicken farming business.

You must assess zoning and regulatory requirements in the area to ensure that poultry farming is permitted. Compliance with local laws is essential to avoid legal issues. The size and layout of the land should be sufficient to accommodate your planned broiler housing, feed storage, and other necessary infrastructure. You should also consider environmental conditions, access to utilities, soil quality, security, and biosecurity measures. Evaluating these factors, along with the cost of land, will help you make an informed decision.

Broiler Poultry Housing

Good housing is an important aspect of the broiler poultry farming business. A good broiler house has the following features : it protects the broiler birds from adverse weather conditions, has a good ventilation system, gives adequate space for the broilers to move around, provides easy access to feed and water. Failure to provide good housing for your broilers will lead to disastrous loses for your poultry farming business. The broiler chicken house should be constructed in such a way that its long axis is in a east-west direction – this helps by minimizing the amount of sunlight that would enter the broiler house. A proper ventilation system should be available in the broiler house so as to provide fresh air to the birds and remove excess heat and moisture. The broiler chicken house should be designed to deal with both extremes – hot weather and cold weather. Good temperature control will enhance feed conversion and growth rate, making your broiler poultry farming business more profitable. The broiler poultry farming business plan should include the costs of the BROILER housing construction. 

Equipment for Poultry Farm

Adequate poultry equipment is essential for raising healthy and profitable broiler chickens. Essential equipment for a broiler poultry farm include feeding equipment. Broilers chickens should have easy access to the poultry feeds – this is made possible by purchasing the right type of feeders. Good feeding equipment should : have a safe design for the chickens, provide clean & fresh feed to the broilers, offer easy access to the feed, and be easy to clean. You can use manual feeders or automatic feeding system depending on the size of your broiler poultry farm and your budget. Drinking equipment are also required when raising broiler chickens. Broilers should always have access to water as water is an important component which supports the growth of broiler chickens. Drinking equipment for broilers can be : water basin, automatic belly waterer, nipple drinker or manual drinker. Each type of poultry drinking equipment has its own advantages and disadvantages. Other additional equipment for a poultry farm include lighting system, heaters, brooders, weighing scales and waste disposal system. The cost of poultry farm equipment should be included in the poultry farming business plan.

Broiler Day Old Chicks

Healthy broiler day old chicks are required for you to be profitable in your poultry farming business. Good quality chicks will minimize the rate of mortality thus ensuring that a high number of birds will survive up to maturity – which implies more profitability for your broiler chickens farming business. Features of good quality broiler day old chicks include : a deep yellow colour, large well developed chick, navels which are well closed, no deformity on the body and the chicks should be active and alert. Research about your chicks supplier before purchasing – always buy the day old chicks from reputable and accredited hatcheries.  You can also consult other poultry farmers on where they purchase their day old chicks from. Day old chicks should be handled with care when transporting them to your farm to avoid mortality during the transportation. The broiler poultry farming business plan should include the costs of acquiring the broiler day old chicks.

broiler chicks feeding

Feed And Nutrition

Feed is required to support the growth of the broiler chickens. Broiler chickens require a variety of nutrients inorder to stay healthy and grow to their full potential. If you fail to provide adequate feed to the birds, they may die , or fail to reach the target weights, which may lead to financial loss of your poultry farming venture. Essential nutrients required by broiler chickens include proteins, vitamins, carbohydrates and minerals. These nutrients are all found in commercial broiler stock feeds. There are 3 types of broiler feeds which are given to the birds at different growth stages. These are Broiler Starter feeds, Broiler Grower feeds, and Broiler Finisher feeds. Water is also required to support efficient growth of the broiler chickens. You will also need a b roiler stress pack/vitamin supplements which  can be used to promote growth of commercial broilers and chicks, and also to combat stress during periods of high temperature, after vaccination and as an aid in recovery from disease to boost performance of the stock. All the feed costs should be included in your poultry farming business plan.

A proactive and comprehensive health management program is crucial to prevent diseases and ensure the well-being of your birds. In some areas vaccinations maybe necessary to protect your broilers from common poultry diseases.

Additionally, strict biosecurity measures must be in place to prevent the introduction and spread of diseases. This includes controlling access to your farm, disinfecting equipment and vehicles, and establishing quarantine areas for new birds. Regularly monitor the health of your flock through routine inspections, and be prepared to take immediate action if any signs of illness or distress are observed.

In the event of disease outbreaks, it’s crucial to have a contingency plan in place. Isolate infected birds to prevent the spread of disease and consult with a veterinarian to determine the appropriate treatment or culling measures. Timely and effective response is critical in minimizing the impact of disease on your broiler flock and, ultimately, your profitability. Regularly educate yourself and your farm staff on best practices in poultry health management, as staying informed about emerging diseases and treatment options is vital. By prioritizing the health of your broilers and implementing robust disease management strategies, you can reduce mortality rates, enhance the overall quality of your poultry products, and maintain a healthy and profitable broiler poultry farming business.

Keys to Profitability in Broiler Poultry Farming

Profitability in your broiler poultry farming business hinges on several crucial factors that span the entire production cycle. Efficient feed management is paramount, as feed expenses often represent a significant portion of your costs. To maximize profitability, invest in high-quality feed, closely monitor feed conversion rates, and avoid overfeeding to minimize waste. Maintaining the health of your broiler flock is equally essential. Implement a robust health management program that includes regular vaccinations, stringent biosecurity measures, and proactive monitoring to prevent diseases and reduce mortality rates. By keeping your broilers healthy, you can reduce the need for costly treatments and ensure steady growth.

The environment in which your broilers are raised plays a pivotal role in profitability. Adequate housing and ventilation are critical components of this equation. Your housing facilities should provide a comfortable environment with proper ventilation, temperature control, and insulation to minimize stress and promote optimal growth. Efficient staffing is also key to managing day-to-day operations effectively.

This means that farmers can realize a relatively fast return on investment compared to other livestock enterprises, making broiler farming an attractive option for those seeking quicker financial returns.

The affordability, versatility, and perceived health benefits of chicken contribute to a consistent and growing market. This ensures stability and reduces the risks associated with market fluctuations and seasonal variations, providing farmers with a reliable source of income.

Compared to some other livestock businesses, broiler farming demands less capital in terms of infrastructure and equipment. This accessibility enables individuals with limited financial resources to enter the poultry farming industry without significant financial barriers. Moreover, broilers’ remarkable feed conversion efficiency minimizes feed costs, contributing to overall profitability, as less feed is needed to produce a unit of meat compared to many other livestock species. These advantages make broiler poultry farming a compelling and potentially lucrative endeavor.

The temperature condition around the broilers is very important for broiler farming and should be treated with high discipline. Failure to-do-so, this might lead to some problems for the broilers. Two days before bringing the chicks to the firm, you should check the temperature of the broiler house. For the first week, the temperature should read around 350°C and it will reduce slowly at a rate of 2.80°C per week. This mostly relies on the temperature outside. The litter or bedding of the chicken has to be around 5 to 6 inch in depth. If there is a chance, you can keep some straw in the chicken bed. The bed should be cleaned every two weeks and if it becomes very wet, you can use lime as it absorbs ammonia gas.

In addition, the temperature at bird height should be 86° t0 90° F. In winter or during very cold periods, run the heat for longer periods to ensure that the floor is okay. When chicks get cold, they don’t feed and might starve to deaf. When the right conditions are observed, the Broilers will grow fast with little problems. This further reduces the overall costs incurred in treatment and other challenges experienced.

The broilers consume the feed and convert it to meat. For the farmer to be successful, they should give their broilers the right feed. Broiler poultry requires a high ratio of proteins in their feed for them to grow well. Vitamins are also needed such as A, B2 and B12 among others. To keep the broilers from diseases, they should be disinfected too.

  • During summers, the Broilers take more water
  • In the first weeks, give the chicks a lot of feed before their restricted feeding begins.
  • The feeding time after restricted should be consistent day-in day-out.

Vaccinations for Broiler Rearing

The broilers require optimal conditions for them to be safe and secure from any diseases. But in most cases, this is difficult to attain. Vaccinating the broilers is a sure way of preventing them from the common diseases that might affect them. Hence, vaccinating them protects them from such threats in the long run. The vaccination process should be done correctly to ensure that all birds receive the vaccine and are protected.

When the birds are being vaccinated, it is required that within two hours of vaccine dilution all the birds should have taken a drink. Water vaccination is the best as all you need to do is to get every bird to drink the vaccinated water. The older the birds are, the more the volume of the vaccine should be.
