Poultry farmers quit due to high cost of feeds

According to an article in Nigerian newspaper The Guardianthe high cost of feed is forcing Poultry Association of Nigeria (PAN) members out of the industry.

According to the article, waning profits have forced many farmers out of the sector. Secretary of the Plateau chapter of PAN Nanji Gambo, who was cited as the source of information, has apparently noticed a decline in membership. She pointed to high feed costs as the cause.

“These farmers could not bear the high cost of feed and so they crashed out of their businesses,” Gambo told The Guardian, adding that the association is urging farmers to wait for government assistance.
