Nigeria is one of the largest countries in Africa, with a total geographical area of 923,768 square kilometers. Its estimated population was 174.5 million people in 2013, and its population growth rate is 3% per annum. Nigerian economic statistics reveal annual economic growth rates that averaged over 7% in recent decades, making Nigeria one of the fastest growing economies in the world. In contrast to the rapid population growth in Nigeria, food production has not followed suit over the last 50 years.
Livestock: 25% of the agricultural GDP is the Livestock sub sector contribution. 25 million people is the estimated commercial poultry employment, while about 85 million are in rural family poultry, managing assets of about N320 billion. N80 billions the estimated commercial value of the Livestock industry.
Poultry: To promote the local industry Nigeria banned poultry imports, which has led to the creation of millions of jobs to the poultry & related industry. So there is a huge demand for technical know-how and poultry & livestock equipment & machineries. Much more in need is low cost feed.
