porting columns, and with concrete floors, making cleaning and disinfection easier.
Unusually for Rwanda, the layers are not caged, but
kept on woodchips and rice waste bedding, resulting in
welfare being higher than in competitor farms.
Between each house, there is a small packing station,
meaning eggs can be packed on site before being sold to
intermediaries and then shipped to Congo.

The best in Rwanda
The farm's flock is fed mash rather than pellets. There
are six silos and raw materials, including corn from coops and sourced locally, while additives are imported
from France. The farm has two crushers, said to be the
best in Rwanda, and feed production is automatically controlled by the farm's formulation room.
Where drinking water is concerned, it is treated with
chlorine, and intake is measured. The farm has an on-site
veterinarian to keep an eye on any potential health issues.

While the eggs produced at Musabyimana's farm may
be bigger than the average produced in Rwanda, shell
quality better, and levels of welfare higher, this does not
result in a price premium for his eggs. However, where the
farm is able to gain an advantage is that, by being close to
purchasers, transport costs are lower.

Rwandan poultry sector draws
international focus

Despite this lack of recognition, Musabyimana
remains optimistic, believing that Africa must satisfy its own demand rather than relying on imports.
More layer houses are being equipped and readied
for production. ■
