Starting a NEW LAYER Poultry Project
« on: December 29, 2012, 07:21:46 PM »
Hey All , I am a farmer having some amount of experience in layer poultry. The farm i currently own is in Shimoga(Karnataka) and is a partnership firm. I am now starting a new farm on my own in Chitradurga for 30,000 layer birds.
It is new project which i have started from buying the land and construction. Any queries on this topic please feel free.  ;)

And I would also like to state that the cost of constructing one layer shed is coming up to 30L. A grower shed to 26L and the brooder shed to about 18L.
The cost of the chick is Rs.25 as of last week . The Brooder mash price is about Rs.23 per Kg, Grower mash - Rs. 20 and Layer mash - Rs.18.

Please note that the feed cost will reduce if you are preparing it yourself rather than buying the ready-made. Yes the feed mill cost would be an extra cost for you intially but on the long run it the best.

So the construction cost for  30,000 layer birds is coming upto 1cr.34L. The construction cost is as of today( calculating the raw material prices and labour).
The cost will be more if the project is started in / near big cities. Since i am starting near Chitradurga few of the raw materials and labour is little cheap.

Dear Friend,

Appreciate initiative in providing information for poultry farmers.

I want to know whether you have planned to use automatic feeders and drinkers for your new shed.

Also, if you could break down the total cost and provide cost for the farm and the equipment. it will be easier for us.

thanks

good luck.

Hi Mohammed,

I have not planned on the automatic feeder yet, but i have plans on the later stage. To start off with i will have that done manually.
Could you please ellaborate your query on "Equipment" . You meant only the automatic feeder part or the feed mill, automatic egg collector etc., aswell ?

These are not included in the estimate given above.

Thanks

Dear Friend,

Thanks for the information.

I wanted to know the cost of the construction of the shed. then for the cost for the cages.
Cost of the feed mill. Please provide in detail about the feed mill which you would use. whether it is a concentrate feed grinder/mixer or it's a pellet feed mill. kindly provide complete information as I' am completely new to feed mills.

thanks in advance.

regards,
Mohammed Muneeb

Mohammed,

Construction cost for a shed depends on the quantity of your batch . The estimate i have given is for one batch of 10,000 birds and the total project for 30,000 birds ( 3 batches)

You can also start 1 batch of 5,000 birds and a total of 5 batches.

The construction of one Brooder shed for 10,000 birds will come upto 8 lakhs and 5 lakhs for cages. Please note that these prices may vary according to the market price of raw materials.

The Grower shed depends on the height of the pillars . In my case I have given 8 ft height from the ground to make it easier for the removal of manure. You can cut short that make it to 4ft and the cost comes down. Construction cost for grower shed is 13 lakhs and cages 8 Lakhs.

The layer shed also depends on the height of the pillars. My case it is 18 Lakhs and 10 lakhs for cages for one shed.

Again, I have done this in a 4 rows 3 tier. We can do it on 3 rows and 3 tier also but the length of the shed will increase which will increse the construction cost.

Please note: These are approx figures. If you need a detailed estimate then please mail me.

The feed mill is of 1 Ton capacity and will be similar to the concrete mixer but rather it would be attached to the whole equipment.

Cheers!

My labour cost for 30K birds come upto roughly 15-20 K and the op cost depends on the strategy you are working on..being said that it depends on you how well you can balance things regarding feeds and labours..depends on you how well you can do the cost cutting at certain places.

The marketing here is simple as the need for the product is more that the dealers come and take the product. Its just the word of mouth that send the info on our poultry and the dealers come looking for us and take the eggs  :)

Hope this helps

Cheers
