This is an example poultry farming project report ‘manure production’ summary…
News Flash: Your bird waste has great value to your neighbouring crop farms!
In doing so you increase your poultry farming project profits & consistently so.
This additional stream of cashflow adds financial efficiency & robustness to make your business model run all the more smoothly.
Papering over any emerging cracks should ‘cost of goods sold (COGS)’ increase or winds of economic change go against.
But how do you account for this figure within your project plan?
Let's take a look at the example...
According to The University of Hawaii, the average mature laying hen produces about 130 lbs of waste per year.
Divided by 365, this equals approx. 0.35 lbs of manure produced per bird, per day.
For the purpose of this scenario we work from a number which is 50% of this benchmark.
The figure of 0.35lbs of manure per day per bird was assuming we are assessing a fully grown hen.
We intend to buy chicks from one day old within this poultry farming project.
Therefore, there are several weeks where the manure production in mass compared with a fully matured hen will be reduced.
Also, there is the potential loss of manure during collection and processing, reducing the figure available for resale further.
This therefore brings our manure production figure to approx. 0.17 lbs per bird per day.
Multiply this number by 8,000 for the average number of birds bought per year (4x batches of 2,000 birds per batch) and we get...
1,360 lbs of manure.
Multiply this figure by 365...
You get 496,400 lbs of manure produced, each year.
Multiplying this figure by the estimated cost of chicken manure per lbs. and we get...
Rs.1,638,120 of manure sales per annum
