A practical cost analysis of raising 100 layer birds
Cost Analysis for 100 layers
The poultry sector is one of the most organized and vibrant segments of the agriculture industry in Nigeria . This sector generates direct and indirect employment and income for about 1.5 million people. The daily increase in population as make the demand so high. Ironically so many people have been misguided into thinking poultry farming is a get rich quick venture with promises of making millions over a short period of time. IT IS NOT TRUE.
Below is a practical street analysis of raising 100 layer birds.
Analysis for 100 layers
Price of chick -#140
The pullet doesn't eat like broiler so they require 1.5kg for 4weeks
I. E 150kg/25kg= 6bags
From 4 week-8week they require 1.5kg-1.7kg
But let's use 1.5kg also
Total of chick mash require =6+6 bags=12bags of chick mash
Each feed mash cost =#3500
12bags * 3500=#42,000
From 9-16 weeks
They require 4kg of feed,i.e 2kg per 4 weeks it is not certain but also depends on the breed and the temperature
4kg*100 birds weeks=400kg/25kg=16bags
A bag of grower is 2850 depends on the company feed
At 16weeks many people will start usin layer mash but is advisable to continue the grower feed till 20weeks of age.
16-20week they will consume 2kg also =2*100=200kg/25kg=8bags
Total bag between 9-20 weeks =24 bags of grower* 2900=#69,600
Total cost so far
Chick mash = #42000
Chick Grower = #69,600
Total = 125,600
For the drugs, the standard calculation = 125,600*5/100=#1850*4=#7,440
The price of medication 1850 for each month, we analysis for medication is 4 month.
For vaccination the standard price for each bird is #6 per week,(Gumboro and Lasota only) for 100= #600 per week. For four weeks=600*4= 2400.
Some necessary vaccination for layers
koromorov at 6weeks=#750 for 100 birds
Fowl pox at 8 weeks #700 per 100 dose.
Deworming at 10 weeks #450
Debeaking at 12 weeks #20 per bird= 2,000
Komorov at 16 weeks #750 per 100 dose
Total cost for vaccination = #7,050
Total cost so far =125,600+7,440+7,050=# 140,090
At 21 weeks they sud start Laying.
Will expect 70percent of the birds to be laying.
I. E 70 eggs per day.
We have 70eggs/ 30= 2.10 creates * 850= 1,785 in a day
Feeding per day of layers
100 layers require 12.5kg of feed per day.
Note 25kg of layer =3150, half will be #1575 per day
Profit per day will be =#1,785-#1575=#210.
In a month will have #210*30=#6,300 per month
For A year 12 month, the production usually rise and fall. Let's forfeit a month to Maintain the production standard.
Spend Layers will be sold
Let say we have 6% mortality and we have 94 birds on ground.
94*1200=112,800 for spent layers.
The total profit = 112,800 - 140,090 = #42,010
This analysis make not be achieved if BIOSECURITY measures is not strictly follow.
Note: for every 6 weeks you do Lasota, which prevents Newcastle, and serve as egg booster.
Medication should also be given at this age I. E., Vitamins, anticoci, and anti biotics should be done at 6 weeks interval
