SUMMIT INFO BELOW:
The organizing commitee hereby invites every stakeholder to make it a date with us at Ife and be part of this milestone.
The Nigerian Poultry Industry is estimated to have 166 million birds, which produced 650,000 metric tonnes of eggs and 290,000 metric tonnes of meat in 2013 and the population of egg producing birds far exceed that of meat producing birds. Formulated feeds account for 60-80% of the recurrent cost of rearing laying birds and poultry feeds account for over two-third of all commercial feed produced in Nigeria. However, providing adequate and quality feeds remains a major challenge in the poultry industry in Nigeria. The problem of feed availability in the poultry industry is due to insufficient local production of maize, soya bean meal and other feedstuffs and limited storage and preservation facilities among others.
Science and technology can find lasting solution to feed shortages through new production technology, feed additives and supplements, precision ration formulation, cost-effective processing and preservation methods, research and development of crop varieties specifically for animal feeding and many more. The theme of NIPS 2017 will focus on the seemingly interactable problem of feed availability in the poultry industry (especially the value chain of maize and soya bean), quality, storage and processing of feeds and feedstuffs among others.
Nigeria International Poultry Summit(NIPS) is a bi-ennial event of World Poultry Science Association (Nigeria Branch) taking place in Nigeria, Africa and involving the meeting of all local, international experts and other stakeholders in Poultry industry to exchange knowledge on the state of Poultry Industry Worldwide with special emphasis on Nigeria and Africa
