SANWO-OLU FINALLY SET ESTABLISH 250-HECTARE CATTLE RANCH IN LAGOS - GOVT OFFICIAL



The Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu-led Lagos State Government is to establish a 250-hectare feedlots/ranch in Igbodu, Epe, through private sector investment to boost production in the red meat value chain.

The state Commissioner for Agriculture, Abisola Olusanya, said this on Thursday in Lagos that the project was to mitigate against shortage of supply caused by strikes and other challenges.

 
Feedlots are agricultural operations where animals are kept and raised in confined situations…that congregate animals, feed, manure and urine, dead animals, and production operations on a small land area.

In the arrangement, feed is brought to the animals rather than the animals grazing or otherwise seeking feed in pastures or fields.

Ms Olusanya said that the project would be in phases as more private feedlots were expected to be set up in the state.

She said that investors were already indicating interest.

According to the commissioner, the state has acquired more land in Epe but would implement the project  in phases.
