The Dormaa Poultry Farmers Association in collaboration with Shyams(Ghana) Limited and Koudijs Animal Nutrition B. V. has held a day’s seminar for some poultry farmers in Dormaa – Ahenkro.

The seminar was held to educate farmers about best practices in poultry production to maximize revenue returns and growth.

Participants were taken through various topics including practical instruction for rearing, increase revenue with better technical results, monitoring, increase revenue with broilers etc.


In his welcoming address, Nana Sebreku, Chairman of the Association, identified the marketing of poultry products particularly eggs as one of the major challenges confronting farmers in the area.

He said currently the supply of poultry products exceeded demands.

He expressed the determination of the association, in partnership with the National Association of Poultry Farmers to establish a broiler processing and preservation plant saying it is currently seeking investors for the establishment of the plant.

Mr Johan Verhoek, the Export Manager of De Heus Koudijs Animal Nutrition, based in Holland, appealed to the farmers to adopt good management practices and adopt appropriate concentrates and feeding formular to ensure maximised revenue and profitability.

Mr Menno Verbrugge, an expert in chicken rearing, said there was such a great potential for broiler processing and production in Dormaa Ahenkro and urged the farmers to invest in quality production of poultry products to sustain their businesses.

He cautioned farmers against excessive borrowing of loans adding this can put them at high risk in effectively ripping benefits on their investment.
