Poultry Farming

Poultry development provides employment in rural as well as urban areas. It supplies nutritive food to consumers in the form of meat, eggs and makes available manure for use by the farmers including fish farmers. Poultry production has made some headway in the district as it requires small space, low capital investment, provide rich returns and has well-distributed turnover round the year.

There is a good demand for poultry products in the district. It has good potential for broiler and layer units. These units can be sustained through sufficient heating arrangements with local low cost methods during adverse weather.
