Business Plans for Poultry Farming

Need help with your business plan - trying to raise capital to farm with? You have got a pile of work ahead of you - cash flow projections, income statements, balance sheets, break even.... It may seem hard, well it is actually quite hard if you are not an accountant, but not as hard as you think.
Your financial statements - or projected financial statements are probably going to seem the biggest hurdle when setting out to raise capital or start a new poultry farm. Apart from the standard things like cash flow, income statements etc. you will need to think about industry specific calculations that will determine your success or failure. The include feed conversion ratio (FDR), production efficiency ratio (FER) and a bunch of others. these will need to be projected and then used in your financial plan.

There are not many poultry farmers involved in breeding chickens - whether that is for selling day old chickens to broiler farmers or breeding roosters and hens for selling as breeding stock. This type of chicken farming involves incubators and means the farmers has some kind of a hatchery to hatch eggs.
