Nkandu Luo launched the Village Chicken Commercialisation programme

Rural News Nkandu Luo launched the Village Chicken Commercialisation programme

Fisheries and Livestock Minister Nkandu Luo has launched the Simdach Village Chicken Commercialisation programme aimed at improving the livestock sector.

Professor Luo has expressed optimism over the empowerment programme, saying it will go a long way in helping smallholder farmers across the country to own village chickens, thereby increasing their incomes.

Speaking during the event in Chibombo district, Professor Luo emphasised the need for women and youths to get fully involved in livestock production as it is the only sure way to reducing poverty.

She commended Simdach for supplementing government efforts in boosting village chicken production which has available market in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Angola.

And SIMDACH Poultry Farms programme Director Simon Sikabanze said the organisation has so far trained 7,000 small scale farmers in good management practices of birds such as village chickens and black Australorps among others.

Meanwhile, Zambia National Union of Teachers -ZNUT- Director Samuel Nyirenda has encouraged teachers in the country to engage in poultry farming in order to sustain their livelihood.

  2. It’s not just talk. It’s also about science. The food conversion ratio of village chickens is not as good as it should be. In plain English, it means that the food they consume does not match with weight gain in a commercially-sustainable way.

    The setting does not warrant any luxury sitting, what is wrong with the SUV drivers and dignitaries sitting on the grass?
    Have you got anything to say about the chicken program? No? Then shut up!!
