“Agriculture isn’t just farming, it is a business” – Big Dutchman

Big Dutchman; a leading livestock company in Nigeria has urged poultry farmers to see agriculture as a business.
National Sales Manager(Business Unit Egg) of the company, Temitope Oyadeyi made this appeal on Monday at a seminar themed “build to last”, organised by the company in Ibadan.
Speaking on the sustainability challenge bedevilling many egg farms in the country, Oyadeyi harped on the possibility of running a poultry business that would continue to thrive for years, even in the absence of the founder or a tough economic climate.
“People own farms and not businesses and this is one of the reasons agriculture hasn’t improved in Nigeria”, he said.
To change this narrative, he added that farmers should begin to see themselves as business owners and not merely self-employed individuals.
He also charged them to collaborate with one another for cost effectiveness and  improved productivity on their farms.
