Poultry Farming Bound To Be Ghana’s Second Income Earner

Our predecessors used to engage in a lot of subsistence farming and animal rearing, to make ends meet and feed their families.

Whatever the type of farming was in an area, the farmers always worked hard, together with their families, on their lands.

Taking a sneak peek into the world of animal farming, the rearing of poultry farming happens to be one of the most important income earners in Ghana.

Poultry farming refers to the kind of farming in which chickens are reared, fed, and made to lay eggs for mass production.

According to research, if a poultry farmer decides to expand his poultry farm by rearing more chickens, he or she can earn more, because more chickens means extra income.
