The project envisages
the establishment of a plant for the production of poultry feed with a capacity
of 2500 tons per annum. Poultry feed it’s a balanced feed which aids proper
development of chicks and pullet. Poultry feed mill processing factory provided
opportunity of employment to the unemployed people of the proposed area. The
state requirement of poultry feed is met through local production. The
principal raw materials required are maize, rice polish, rice bran, groundnut
cake, soya beans, fish meal, vitamin and salt. All the raw materials are
locally available except vitamin which is to be imported. The project will
create backward linkage with the agricultural and Agro-processing Sectors and
forward linkage with poultry sector and also generated income for the
government term of tax revenue and pay-roll tax. This enable the growth poultry
industry to utilize the weed of the economic development of the area and the
BACKGROUND OF STUDY
The proposed poultry
feed mill processing factory is to be sited at autabalefi in karu local government
area of Nasarawa State.
This project will
enhance the use of local indigenous available raw materials in Nasarawa state
and its environment, thus boosting the working ability of farmer and providing
employed people and also generating revenues for local communities. Poultry
feed mill are mixture of various ingredients such as maize, rice bran,
grandaunt cakes molasses, soya beans cake, fish meals, corn etc. the
composition of poultry feed can be varied depending on the availability of
various raw materials such as carbohydrate, protein, vitamins and minerals.
Balanced feed it very
essential for proper growth of divides and pullets and hence use for feeding
others domesticated birds such as chickens, turkey, ducks, geese etc at which
also increase the output of broiler/eggs. Feed for poultry mostly consist of
grain, a portion of commercial feed, typical around quarter, is known as bulk
and it indigestible. The amount of bulk is referred to as bulk density.
The quantity of feed
and the nutritional requirements of the feed depend on the weight and the age
of the poultry as well as the season. Healthy poultry required a sufficient
amount of protein and carbon-hydrate along with the necessary vitamins, dietary
minerals and an adequate supply of water certain diets also required the use of
grit, tiny rocks as process of granite in the feed. Grit aids in digestion by
grinding ford as it passes through the gizzard. Grit is not needed if
commercial feed is used. The poultry feed must remain clean and dry;
contaminated feed can infect poultry. Damp feed en-courage fungal growth
disease can be avoided with proper maintenance of the feed and feeders. The use
of poultry feed can be supplemented with food find through foraging in
industrial agricultural. Machinery is used to automate the feeding process,
reducing the cost and increasing the scale of farming for commercial poultry
farming. Feed serve as the largest cost of operation in agriculture. The
development of poultry farms is receiving an increasing attention considering
the nutritional requirement of the population.
This project is
intended to bring development employment opportunity to the state and city at
Due to the Increase
population of poultry farms in Nasarawa state and it environ, This encourage an
introduction of poultry factory to the indigenous of the Area providing
opportunities to the farmers in either to ease their demands from other poultry
industry at which the Nasarawa state as an agricultural state has sustainable
raw material that can serve purpose for the production of the feed mil
AIM AND OBJECTIVE
The project is aimed
at designing a functionally standard and effective poultry feed production
factory that will ensure optimum product delivery with minimum flow conflict.
To ensure effective
functional layout of unit of the factory
smooth flow of production live from raw materials delivery to finished product
Adopted a flexible
design concept that will also for future expansion.
PROJECT SCOPE AND LIMITATION
With the increase
demand for poultry farms products for domestic consumption as well expert, the
farmer realized maintaining of quality poultry with proper feeding and
management. The proportion of crossbred bird increase over the balanced
manufacturing process will base on different qualities and forms
(mash/pellets/crumble) to the farmer. The proposed poultry feed mill processing
factory design is divided in to three main section.
Convenience or rest
The project is to
have fact finding of poultry feed mill factory for growth and development
investment into a very new source for the benefit of poultry famers considering
the low level of feed production manufactory in the state which requires
thriving a successful and modern poultry feed mill industry by using local
availability raw material. This will justify the need to encouraging the
farmers to produce more of the availability of raw materials to the enhancement
of the economic development of the area and the state as well as the country.
