North West Farmers to benefit innovations from C.D.E.N.O

Dr Taiga inaugurates new hatchery

A relief will in the days ahead befall farmers particularly poultry farmers in the North West region of Cameroon, following the availability of a hatchery to help hatch chicks and supply in the region and neighbouring regions. 
The display of the 30, 000 capacity broiler was presented to the public in Bamenda, Thursday December 17, 2020. 

 The 30,000 eggs hatchery will be used to hatch eggs into chicks in 21 days. Over the years, poultry farmers found it difficult getting day old chicks, this will therefore serve the purpose. As planned, parent chickens will be provided to lay fertilised eggs for easy production as proposed by board members of the North West Livestock Development Fund (CDENO)

"Board members are very impressed with the innovation and have even gone ahead to propose other innovations linked to that hatchery. We envisaged parent chickens, where fertilised eggs will be produced on the spot instead of importing them. If we implement that, it will go a long way to reduce the cost of a day old Chick which is the lowest around Bamemda now." Mr Mbah Shupong Micheal, Director at the Ministry of Livestock, Fisheries and Animal Industries told The Observer

Other projects have been envisaged for the coming year in the region to support farmers. The production of all qualities of animal feed will be produce in C.D.E.N.O. 

"We envisage a total of 155 tones in the budget for 2021 which is a progress from when we started the production of feed. We have been processing with a minimum of 20 tonnes increase per year which is a big advantage for the North West region." Mr Mbah Shupong highlighted 

All of these activities came in to commemorate the boss of C.D.E.N.O Minister Tiaga who visited the region to ensure a smooth flow of activities at the regional level. While on his tour Thursday December 17, 2020, he encouraged farmers in the on-going agro pastoral show taking place at Big Mankon Bamenda to be productive, committed and consistent.
