Adoption of Organic Poultry and Rabbit Production for Improvement of Quality of Life in Nigeria: A Review
Organic livestock production promotes the use of biodegradable inputs from the ecosystem in terms of animal nutrition, health, housing and breeding. However, it avoids the use of synthetic chemical from outside the ecosystem. Consequently, this paper considers the potentials of organic poultry and rabbit farming in Nigeria. Factors of production available for the take-off and sustenance of organic poultry and rabbits were considered, particularly among the small-scale rural farmers in Nigeria. The paper places emphasis on available production resources within the reach of the farmer. It also highlights measures that will aid adoption of organic poultry and rabbit production in Nigeria.
