jumbo SAMPLE PROJECT PROPOSAL : SAMPLE PROJECT PROPOSAL Production of 100 Heads Broiler Chicks
Animals furnish more than one-fourth of the world’s total value of agricultural products. They supply a much higher proportion of human food. Traditionally, animal production practices are closely associated with the degree of control needed over the animals that are kept and the uses to which they are put. : Most domesticated animals have multiple uses. The animals and their uses, however, are closely associated with the culture and experiences of the people who care for them.
Poultry production has become one of the most efficient producers of protein for human consumption. It expanded rapidly because only 7-8 weeks are required to produce a broiler. : This poultry industry concerns itself principally with the production of broilers that weigh more than a kilo liveweight at 7-8 weeks of age. The income from this phase of the industry comes from the sale of live or dressed birds for meat. Broilers are sold either by the piece or by unit weight. : Customers here are restaurants, hotels, eateries and people of every means. Broilers are tender, juicy and delicious. Many owners of eateries make a profitable business out of serving broilers cooked according to their respective “trade-secret” formulas.
Hence, the Animal Science Club of Mandaue City Agricultural High School has decided to venture into broiler production with the end in view of developing skilled high school graduates, thus contribute to the economic development in our society. : Justification
Is there money in broiler production?
Mandaue City Agricultural High School is situated near the center of population. Aside from that, the school administration has a good market contact. We can cater to restaurants and public eateries which serve genuine fried broilers to their costumers. We could have contract to supply dressed or live broilers which are sold by the piece or by unit weight. : At present, the average weight of broilers at 7 weeks is 1.3 kgs with a conservative food consumption at 6 50-kgs bags of feeds for 100 heads. These average can easily be improved through efficient management.
Furthermore, our computation for expenditures, revenues and net worth are based on the following conditions: : 1. The building and equipment are constructed mostly of local materials. Capital investment on building is kept to the minimum, otherwise, the cost of depreciation may eat up the profits. The building is expected to lasts for 5 years. This means a depreciation of 20 % per year is deducted to the annual revenues.
2. Average mortality is 4%.
3. The average liveweight is 1.3 kg/bird.
4. Live broiler is priced at P80/kg.
5. Manure is not included since it will be recycled for organic fertilizers. : Objectives
