I present my analysis on investment in the poultry sub sector in Uganda. Ugandans know this all because chicken are an integral part of the DNA of Ugandan life.
Village Pork is a pork production company using low-cost feeding technology combined with superior pig breeds to produce high quality lean and fresh pork for the market. We aim at plugging the pork deficit in Uganda. Our dream is to have the largest pig farm in East Africa, complete with a processing plan.
On a rainy November morning, a barefooted, teary young lady stands beneath cover of a gigantic mango tree.
That a girl who should have been school at such a time was riskily standing under a tree during a downpour, looking terrible as she was, drove me to want to seek the cause of her misfortune.
Jane, as she introduced herself, went on to reveal that she had just been denied the opportunity to take her final secondary school exams. This came after having sacrificed to repeat the final year in order to make a good showing at the final exams.
Most of the crop had been decimated, and most of the cows hit with a local bout of foot and mouth disease, among other seemingly innumerable challenges.
They would like to continue with their education but the shackles of poverty hold them captive, restraining any chance at a decent life. Ideally, if such young people fail to pursue education for any reason, they should be systematically afforded proper business skills from which they can begin to build small businesses to develop themselves and support their families.
That very idea is at the center of how we work at Village Pork Farm. Several months after I first met her, Jane visited Village Pork farm for a duration of 2 weeks. Having only known about the traditional techniques of raising pigs in Uganda, which are liable to a high disease burden, are labor intensive, and result in slow growth of the animals, this was a chance for her to interface with a modern and highly productive pig farming business.
She was impressed with our insistence on efficient utilization of resources, using a relatively small piece of land to mount our operation. She was taught the most fundamental aspect of the business: It was emphasized to her that a successful piggery venture relies on a systematic set of procedures followed on the farm and revised every so often to keep in tune with the best farming practices.
She also learned about other techniques we had adapted to the local farming environment, such as making silage from sweet potato vines that could be stored for months, as opposed to just discarding the vines after harvests.
Most impressive of them all is our Indigenous Micro-Organism technology I. Owhere micro-organisms are introduced into a stratified floor system made of several materials. She was motivated by the how profitable piggery was in Uganda.
After one year, Jane now runs a small modern farm supplying the local pork joints. Under that scheme, we have so far hosted 25 youth at the farm, and many of these have gone on to start their own farm with our guidance.
The project will be run as follows: The sows will be artificially inseminated and give birth after days about 4 months to about piglets. The piglets will be raised at the farm until 2 months of age, after which half will be given to the youth to start their own farms and other half raised for the benefit of the farm.
The mother sows will be inseminated again in the 6th month of the project and deliver another piglets in the 10th month.
Again, half will go to the youth and half to the farm.Despite the huge profitability of Piggery, many Nigerian are still overlooking this goldmine because of ignorance of how it works.
While some don’t just get the fact that it is a big business – many who engage in it do it as part time business but if you can engage in this business fully, you are sure going to smile to the bank very soon.
i want to start pig farming in ashio-midori.com help me with a copy of a piggery business plan. And any other information relate to starting a pig farm.
i Will be grateful to hear from you. Fredrick. So you want to do business in Uganda by investing in poultry farming and “Mavi ya kuku”?
For start, I am not abusing anyone like Uganda’s Col. Kahinda Otafire and his, shall I call them “famous euphemisms” including the “Mavi ya Kuku” statement. Spencer has delivered talks to future policy leaders on the small business-government interface, and has had numerous leadership roles in organizations bridging the gap between government and community.
