cattle-843909_128h0Cattle rearing in Nigeria is indeed a lucrative business, because you can make money from every part of cattle (that is: meat, milk, hide, cheese, hooves etc).

Despite the lucrative nature of cattle business, it is not so common in other regions in Nigeria except in the North. This is because it is viewed as a dirty business or business for the illiterates, and this should not be so.

Steps to Consider in Establishing Cattle Farm

  1. Get a Land: excellent grazing land.
  2. Provide security by fencing the land to avoid theft.
  3. Construct a shed for the cattle to protect them from extreme weather.
  4. Construct suitable source of water.
  5. Employ herdsmen to take care of the cattle.
  6. Get an expert to assist you in selecting the breeds, to ensure you purchase healthy stock.
  7. Stock your farm with both young males (bull) and young females (heifer) for reproduction process.
  8. Get a Veterinary Doctor to guide you, especially for treatment and reproduction purposes.
  9. Separate pregnant cow from the herd, for special care and attention.

Though the business is slow and steady, but if proper care and attention is given to the cattle, your profit is guaranteed.

Imagine the cost of an average cow ranges from N90000 to N100000, and cattle can grow to about 4 to 5 years, within this year’s you will make huge profit.

Therefore, this is just a way of encouraging big business investors in regions like South South, South East and South West to invest more into cattle production.

    I hope you are not encouraging another hit of nomadic inversion, because you didn’t specify and stress on sources of feed or how to graze them in enclosed place to avoid trespassing into people’s landed property.

    1. Ayoade says:

      Thank you Kene for saying that.

      Definitely, we are not trying to encourage unauthorized nomadic invasion of farm premises. I believe when more enlightened people go into the cattle rearing business, we will enjoy greater sanity.
