Starting a Grasscutter Farm with 50 Colonies is a beautiful investment. This is an Investment you will start this year and you will record CRAZY profits 1095 days from this year(depending on how fast you intend to recoup your investment.
Here is a breakdown of what I am talking about:
50 colonies of Grasscutters is equal to 50 male Grasscutters and 200 female Grasscutters. Assuming your 150 females get pregnant and give birth to 3 each (a female Grasscutter gives birth to between 3 and 9 Children. Most Literature acknowledge 10), you will have 450 Grasscutters. That means in the first year (between now and Nov 2017), you will have 450 new Grasscutters.
I left out 50 females taking into consideration mortality (you can get lower mortality if you do the right things).
ln the second procreation season (2018), they will give birth twice. Still using 3 as a benchmark, you will have 900 new Grasscutters. 900 new Grasscutters plus last years 450, will give you 1,350 Grasscutters.
Third procreation season (2019), another 900 new Grasscutters. 900 plus 1,350 gives you 2,250 Grasscutters.
Female Grasscutters produce for up to 4 years before they are sold off as old layers. In my case, I sell them off at 3 years. I believe that at 3 years,they have done well when you consider the economic value they have created. Assuming you decide to sell this 2,250 Grasscutters at N5,000 each (remember that 1 kg of Grasscutter is N2,500, but lets use a benchmark of N5,000 per Grasscutter) to direct consumers, you will generate N11,250,000 from a colony Investment of N3,850,000.
If you decide to group them into colonies and sell to breeders, lets assume that after grouping them, you get 1,000 colonies and you sell at N77,000, that is N77,000,000.
Is this an awesome Agro-business?
For me,it is. Little wonder why I have been in the industry for the past 4 years and 8 months now.
Below is the Video of the type of cage i suggest you build. Hire laborers to build a small hall like the one in the video for you, then locate a welder and he will build the cages for you and you are good to go.
