PROBLEMS OF POULTRY PROJECT MANAGEMENT IN AFRICA

Going by the liberalization of trade, Africa will witness massive expansion of market for poultry products.

Poultry management is essential for maximum production and profitability. Many farms are out of business due to deficiencies in poultry technical skills and ignorance of poultry project management. Going by the liberalization of trade, Africa will witness massive expansion of market for poultry products. Expansion will require that more poultry products are moved to regions where they are very scarce. Only with good management of our poultry farms in Africa, this can be achieved.

Management may be defined in a general term, as a scientific and judicious interplay in the appropriate allocations of production variables with possible alternate usage to achieve desired futuristic objectives in an enterprise at a minimal cost implication. Resources that needed to be efficiently managed in poultry business enterprises can be reclassified into four categories; fixed resources, operational resources, management resources and capital resources.

LIFA in her capacity to help improve the livestock industry documented the problems of poultry project management in Africa by reviewing some selected case studies and market prospect for the upcoming year.
The report’s objective identifies core problems responsible for poor production that limits efficient management of poultry and the role human resources play in poultry project management in Africa.
