Good afternoon Farm Chat community members,

Poultry farming is becoming a very topical matter globally. Many people and even government in Africa and Asia are looking at agriculture and particularly poultry farming as a way to inject to life into their economies. For individuals on the ground there is a sense that it is a profitable venture offering potential for growth and good returns and a good quality of life. For more Western poultry farmers is there that same optimism. Would you recommend poultry farming as a start-up? I think Western farmers may be advantaged in cost availability of feed but land and taxes are steep and a poultry project be planned without steep leveraging on debt? Any thoughts would be welcome.
