Model Project on Poultry Broiler Farming

1. Why do broiler farming ? Poultry meat is an important source of high quality proteins, minerals and vitamins to balance the human diet. Specially developed breeds of chicken meat (broiler) are now available with the ability of quick growth and high feed conversion efficiency. Depending on the farm size, broiler farming can be a main source of family income or can provide subsidiary income and gainful employment to farmers throughout the year. Poultry manure has high fertilizer value and can be used for increasing yield of all crops. i) The advantages of broiler farming are ii) Initial investment is a little lower than layer farming iii) Rearing period is 6-7 weeks only iv) More number of flocks can be taken in the same shed v) Broilers have high feed conversion efficiency i.e. least amount of feed is required for unit body weight gain in comparison to other livestock. vi) Faster return from the investment vii) Demand for poultry meat is more compared to sheep/Goat meat 2. Scope for broiler farming and its national importance India has made considerable progress in broiler production in the last two decades. High quality chicks, equipments, vaccines and medicines are available. Technically and professionally competent guidance is available to the farmers. The management practices have improved and disease and mortality incidences are much reduced. Many institutions are providing training to entrepreneurs. The broiler population has increased from 4 million in 1971 to 700 million in 1998. An average annual growth rate of 20% was estimated during the eighth five year plan (1992-1997). Increasing assistance from the Central/ State governments and poultry corporations is being given to create infrastructure facilities so that new entrepreneurs take up this business. Broiler farming has been given considerable importance in the national policy and has a good scope for further development in the years to come. 3. Financial assistance available from Banks/NABARD for broiler farming

3.1 NABARD is an apex institution for all matters relating to policy, planning and operations in the field of agricultural credit. It serves as an apex refinancing agency for the institutions providing investment and production credit. It promotes development through formulation and appraisal of projects through a well organised technical services department at the Head Office and technical cells at each of the Regional Offices. 3.2 Loan from banks with refinance facility from NABARD is available for starting broiler farming. For obtaining bank loan, the farmer should apply to the nearest branch of a commercial or cooperative or regional rural bank in their area in the prescribed application form which is available in the branches of financing bank. The technical officers attached to or the manager of the bank can help or give guidance to the farmers in preparing the project report to obtain bank loan. 3.3 For poultry farming schemes with very large outlays detailed project reports are required to be prepared. The items of finance would include construction of broiler sheds and purchase of equipments. Cost of one day old chicks, feed, medicine and labour cost for the first 7 weeks period for the first cycle, are also considered. Facilities such as land development cost, fencing, water and electricity, essential servants quarters, godowns, transport vehicles, broiler dressing, processing and cold storage facilities can also be considered for providing loan. Cost of land is not considered for loan. However, if land is purchased for starting a broiler farm, its cost can be treated as party's margin money upto 10% of the total cost of project. 4. Scheme formulation for bank loan 4.1 A scheme can be prepared by the beneficiary after consulting local technical persons of State veterinary department, poultry corporation or private commercial broiler hatcheries. If possible, they should also visit the progressive broiler farmers in the area and discuss the profitability of farming. A good practical training and experience on a broiler farm will be highly desirable, before starting a broiler farm. As broilers have to be sold after attaining 6-7 weeks of age, a regular and constant demand for broiler meat and nearness of the farm to the market should be ensured. 4.2 The scheme should include information on land, water and electricity facility, marketing aspects, training facilities and expertise of entrepreneurs and the type of assistance available from State government, poultry corporations, local hatcheries. It will also include data on proposed capacity of the farm, total cost of the project, margin money to be provided by beneficiary and requirement of bank loans, estimated annual expenditure, income and profit and the repayment of loan and interest. A format developed for formulation of broiler farming schemes is appended as annexure I. 5. Requirements of good project The bank officers also can assist in preparation of the scheme or filling in the prescribed application form. The scheme so formulated should be submitted to the nearest branch of bank. The bank will then examine the scheme for technical feasibility and economic viability.

The feed mixed with coccidiosis should be used. Once vaccinated gives life long immunity. In case of an outbreak. the Coccidiocidal drug in drinking water should be used at recommended level. Its organisms thrive on wet litter and so keep the litter dry. . During chick rearing the disease most likely to occur is coccidiosis.
