Cattle Rearing/ Fattening Business Plan
Background of The Business: Currently, about 190 million people live in Nigeria. Beef consumption is estimated at 380 000 tons as at 2014 and is projected to grow up to 1.3 million tons by 2050. But the meat market has poor infrastructure.
Slaughter of livestock and fresh meat trade is concentrated in the public open markets without packing and refrigeration, resulting in a significant reduction in the quality and shelf life. This necessitates the need for commercial and industrial companies that are able to solve the problems of the meat market and provide mass public access to high-quality meat at a reasonable price.
According to FAO stat, there are 19.5 million heads of livestock in Nigeria with the production of about 380 thousand metric tons of meat per year. The number of cattle of Nigeria in neighbouring countries is estimated to be more than 36.5 million heads.
