BUSINESS PLAN OF POULTRY FARM
Business concept: Purpose of the venture: 2015 G.C. To meet the demand of customer and built strong customer relationship, to create the employment opportunity for others and to contribute the economy of the country.
Survey on rural chicken production system was conducted in three peasant associations of Haramaya Woreda of Oromia regional state to generate information on the problems and constraints emending the developments of their community with particular emphasis on poultry production and to list the possible opportunities and strategies that could solve these problems. A total of 120 households were used for the survey work. Finally, all the data collected were analyzed using descriptive statistics. About 77.5% of all the respondents share family dwellings with poultry, attributed to the small flock size, low priority given to chicken and relatively high cost of poultry house construction. The results obtained clearly showed that poultry diseases are widely spread in the Woreda and farmers pointed out that, Newcastle Disease, fowl cholera; respiratory diseases and predators are responsible for the major losses of birds in the study sites. Almost all the respondents reported poultry and poultry product market price fluctuation attributed to limitation in land holding, disease occurrence and low purchasing power of the consumers. About 100% of the respondents reported to keep different classes of chicken together, the practice of which facilitates transmission of diseases. In summary the results of this study tends to indicate that production performance of indigenous chicken is low under traditional production practice and need to be improved.

Data on characteristics of village chicken production, feeds and feeding practices, housing, management of chicken and eggs, Marketing, diseases and constraints of village chicken production system were collected. Scavenging chicken production system is observed in all households of the districts. Average flock size of chickens in the study area was 9.4 birds and varied between 4 and 17 birds. In the present study, 82% of the households provide overnight housing within the family house for their chicken. Scavenging is the only feeding system encountered in all study districts with little grain supplementation. Most of the chicken are owned and managed by women (36.75%). Selling of unprocessed eggs and live chickens is mainly practiced. External parasites (mites), Coccidiosis and Newcastle disease were the most important and prevailing diseases in the study area with 39%, 38% and 34% incidence rates, respectively. The magnitude of occurrence of the parasites and diseases were higher in the wet season.

There are some important decisions which you have to make before venturing into the broiler poultry farming business. You have to decide on the size of your poultry farming business project i.e. the number of broiler chickens you want to keep per cycle; location of the poultry farming business, and your intended target market. These choices will be affected by the amount of capital you have, and the size of your target market. It’s also important to carry out market research (Who are you going to sell the broiler chickens to? At what price?) and to write a broiler poultry farming business plan document before you venture into this business.
Broilers or broiler chickens are mainly raised for meat production. There are several approaches to how the meat is sold. Those approaches are what constitute your options when choosing a business model. The most straightforward is selling the live birds. The live birds can be sold early since some clients specifically buy ‘baby chickens’. This is often around when the broilers are at 4 weeks. Fast food joints that major in chicken-based dishes prefer such. Then live birds can be sold to any client, particularly for home use, from 5 weeks to actual maturity age. The next approach is to sell slaughtered whole birds.
The moment broilers reach the stipulated age of maturity it is wise to slaughter them. That age is between 6-7 weeks, depending on the needs of your target market. This is to avoid spending more money on feeds as that will shrink your profit margins. Plus if you feed them sparingly to minimize extra costs but that will cause them to lose weight. You can sell the slaughtered whole chickens per kilogram or using a fixed charge per bird. Aside from selling as slaughtered whole chickens, you can sell them as portions (or cuts).
Land for Broiler Poultry Farming
There are several factors to consider when selecting land for broiler poultry farming. Your broiler poultry farm should be located close to your market – this helps by cutting transport costs. The land should be a distance away from residential or industrial areas as the poultry farm may create unwanted noise and odors to the inhabitants of those areas. Sufficient water supply should be available at broiler form, and availability of electricity is important. To avoid the risk of flooding, the broiler house should be constructed at a fairly raised land with proper drainage. Thus low lying areas should be avoided as they are prone to flooding. When choosing the location of your broiler farm, you should also take into consideration the state of the roads. The roads leading to your broiler farm should be in a good condition as you will need to transport chicks, feeds and birds to market. Also take into consideration availability of cheap labour as staffing costs affect the profitability of your broiler chicken farming business.
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 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.
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.
Management and Labour for Broiler Poultry Business
The number of farm workers you need will depend on the size of your poultry farming business project. If you are running a small poultry farm business e.g. 100 birds/cycle, you and your family may be enough to take care of the birds, but if you are rearing 2000 birds per cycle, you will need full time employees to manage the poultry farm. There is need for good technical knowledge of broiler poultry farming rearing techniques for success in the business, and good management skills.
Capital for Broiler Poultry Farming Business
The amount of capital required for the broiler poultry business depends on the scale of the project. You can get a loan from the bank, or funding from investors, to use as capital to start your poultry farming business. If you plan to raise capital from investors and a loan from the bank, you need a good poultry farming business plan. If you don’t have access to investors and bank loan, you can use your personal savings and start small, and grow your business overtime. Broiler chickens are very profitable, so if you reinvest the profits you get, you can quickly grow. Even if you are not planning to get a loan, you should still get a broiler poultry farming business plan doc to guide you in starting and operating the business.
The production costs dynamic is delicate in broiler farming. The more time broilers are kept alive after maturation date, they start eating into the profits. This is because the recommended feeding quantities are so specific and the profit margin not too wide. After all, mortalities and some broilers not being sellable due to small sizes eat away at profits. That is why marketing efforts must start way before the broilers reach maturity. Ideally if you can secure clients in advance that would be the best. Broilers can be sold as live birds, slaughtered full chickens, or as separate parts. They can be sold as so-called baby chickens – around 4 weeks. They can be sold based on weight or just by visual assessment.
These all point to different customer segments. For example restaurants often want baby chickens. Butcheries often purchase broilers based on weight. General consumers often purchase live or slaughtered broilers; at times part-specific. Using social media marketing and putting up signage around the vicinity of your broiler farming spot is effective. You can also specifically engage potential clients for supplier arrangements. Encouraging and rewarding word of mouth is also a fast and cost-effective way to market your broilers.
Market for Broiler Chickens
The market for broiler chickens is very huge and is ever increasing. The annual global demand of broiler chickens is 120 million tonnes. That’s a lot! You can supply your broiler chickens to individual households, butchers, schools, restaurants, companies, supermarkets, organizations, events, abattoirs etc. You can sell your broilers as live birds or you can slaughter and freeze them and sell them as dressed chicken. The broiler poultry farming business plan ought to include a proper marketing plan to use in your poultry farming business.
