Hi farmers, its always a good moment to write to you again, how as been the year 2015? 

Well, i believe any wise farmer and business would have been listing down the investment budget for next year, if you have not been doing that, i enjoy you to start doing that, it will help you to walk in wisdom and proper management, and maximum profits.

So today, i login to my facebook, and since it is connected to this blog, every now and then, a lot of pople all over the eorld, connect and contact me to ask various questions on agriculture and farming business amongst other things related in that line, so this time, what was the question; the woman said;

Hello sir, please which farming business can i start with #100,000 by 2016?

To me that was a brilliant question, i just wrote an article of recent on planning your farm year ahead for 2016.

The goodnews is that there are too many businesses you can start up with #100,000 or even less than that, here i shared about businesses you can start with just #10,000 in Nigeria.

So today i will answer the woman's question inn two forms, businesses in livestock farming (animals) and plantation agriculture (crops).

Before we proceed, remember to read the top most lucrative Agricultural/Farming business ventures.

Farming Businesses You can start with #100,000

1. Poultry : You don't need a million plus before you can start poultry farming business, its one of the easiest to start, the major aspect that will require your continuous spending is the feeding; and you can make provisions for that right before starting up.
I have written some articles on Poultry Farming here that can help you get started as a beginner.
Another lovely aspect of poultry farming business is the huge market, you can't meet it, that is why some Nigerians still smuggle chicken and turkey meat into the country because the market is large and we can't meet it.
One of the best season for poultry farmers to make huge profits is the festive period like christmas, new year and the likes, more people tend to go for chicken and thus huge market, we have not meet the market yet!

Diversity is one of the beautiful aspects of Poultry Farming; you can choose to raise cockerels, broilers, layers and produce eggs.
All of these are super money making ventures in Agriculture and with less than #100,000 you can start and make huge progress.

2. Fish Farming : There are some specific animal proteins that can not be far fetch in people's stew, every now and then and one of them is 'FISH' Everybody east fish but right now its seems to be catfish' Lol sounds kinda found that people are on the out look for the fish of cat (don't mind me o) catfish!
The demand for catfish is so massive, it got to a point, when farmers in my town raise up to a million catfish; there are already buyers some where that are more than ready to buy up the fishes.

So the market status of fish farming business in Nigeria is very high too; the beauty of market here is that; you don't have to look for buyers, they are already looking for you because they need what you have in store.

3. Pig Farming : I actually started mine, with one pig but over time the number was increasing and we have made so much profits and progress in our farming year - 2015' so you might need up to #100k to start a pig farm, but if you start with 100k then you will make such a speedy progress

Pig farming is super lucrative, we have not been able to meet the demands of pigs in both Nigeria and Africa as a continent, so it also as a ready buyer network.
