Poultry hatchery and feel mill enterprise being implemented in strong agriculture program setting

Onsite training with gardeners
Onsite training with gardeners

Under the existing agriculture and livestock program in Libera, BRAC is already training rural, landless women in backyward poultry rearing as well as recruited and trained Community Agriculture Promoters. In this setting, BRAC has established the hatchery and feed mill in Nekreen township near Buchanan in Grand Bassa County. Production of local chicks will provide a cost effective alternative to expensive and unreliably-imported chicks, which suffer a 25-30% mortality rates due to bad roads and adverse conditions during transportation.

Thanks to our partners, BRAC began contructing the hatchery and feed mill infrastructure, including: a feed mill, two poultry sheds an office-cum-residence for hatchery and feed mill staff; a second staff residence; and a generator house. Construction activities were completed in February 2014 in accordance to the project work plan. The parent stock of day old chicks is was imported in March 2014.

The BRAC Liberia team is eager to continue recruiting community farmers to become General Poultry and Livestock Rearers.
