In line with our goal to continue to impact rural farmers across Africa, we have expanded our operations to Adamawa, a state in Northeastern Nigeria.
Adamawa, is one of the largest states in Nigeria and is home to beautiful and historic sites like the Nuhu Auwalu Wakili’s Palace, Sukur World Heritage Site, Lamido’s Palace, Kamale Mountain Peak in Michika, Three Sisters Rock in Song, and the Confluence of Rivers Benue and Gongola in Numan Uba under Mubi.
It’s eastern border also forms the national eastern border with Cameroon.
The major occupation of the people of Adamawa State is farming, cattle rearing and those living on the banks of the rivers engage in fishing. Their major cash crops are cotton and groundnuts while food crops include maize, yam, cassava, guinea corn, millet, and rice.
We also launched in Adamawa with a new farm project! We will be empowering Cattle farmers in Adamawa State to execute our Cattle Fattening project using a Feedlot Production system.
Feedlots are confined areas with watering and feeding facilities, where the Cattle are fed for the purpose of fit-for-slaughter beef that are high quality, nutritious, and disease-free.
Raising cattle in feedlots eradicates the problem of animal rustling as the animals are fitted with biocompatible passive RFID microchips approved by ICAR which are used to identify and geolocate individual livestock animals which is essential for surveillance and disease control.
Rearing cattle in feedlots is an important alternative for beef production, particularly for the provision of high quality, nutritious meat, fit for consumption and export.
We aim to scale up our Cattle Fattening operations and use it to encourage traditional Cattle herders to embrace the Feedlot Cattle production as an efficient alternative to the traditional nomadic practice of raising cattle.
