opportunity to rural areas, and the
poultry industry can offer many and
varied opportunities.

Opportunities for change
Despite its abundant resources,
Africa remains a significant importer of chicken meat.  In 2016,
sub-Saharan Africa was the sixth
largest importer of chicken meat in
the world, while West Africa came
in at 10th.
But there are steps that can be
taken to improve the continent's
situation and to foster home production. The rising, more prosperous
population should act as a driver for
demand, and current low consumption levels mean there is room to
grow. But while demand may be
growing, more attention needs to
be paid to ensuring that supply can
respond.
For this to happen, there needs to
be government support, for example,
though government and private
sector partnerships and making
poultry part of a national future.
Trade protection systems need to be
strengthened, and infrastructure and
skills capacity need to be strengthened. None of this will be easy,
however, while financial resources
are limited.
The sector also needs to work
with foreign technology partners,
while adopting production patterns
that suit local needs. Resistance
to genetically modified organisms
needs to be addressed, and sanitary
and phytosanitary and other trade
measures firmly adopted, Lovell
noted.

And there would appear a strong
opportunity on the horizon if projected supply shortfalls are accurate.
For example, taking into account
changes in demographics, by 2050,
there will be a forecast of shortfall

of 21 million tons of chicken in subSaharan Africa alone.

No small feat.

The new Konavi Feeder gives birds
easy access to feed without stepping in it.
™

The Konavi™ Feeding System is a
breakthrough in global broiler feeding.
It features an angled cone with antirake fins that helps keep birds out of
the feeder to maintain fresh, clean
feed. With its low pan height and
patented scalloped edge, the Konavi Feeder invites chicks to eat
from the pan from day one and gives birds comfortable, easy access
to feed throughout their growth cycle. Plus, the streamlined design
permits more complete cleaning between flocks for better bird
health. The new Konavi Feeder lets beaks in, and helps keep feet out.
