The Project objectives

The animal husbandry will radically transform to respond to the increasing demand of protein and not only will it change such yearning, will also have large societal impact, beyond the livestock sector per se.
These scenarios are plausible stories about the future of the livestock sector and its possible impact on society including on public health, environment and livelihoods. There are two scenarios where livestock production increases tremendously, one with moderate and one with high level of intensification

Undoubtedly, as its production increased over the year, so have people changed their consumption trends. It has evolved from a purely subsistence to a successful commercial.

There is no gainsaying that Nigerian society and economy will grow swiftly and transform extensively and this case, so will the demand for animal consumption. Therefore the need for poor community and the people there to intensify their cultural and farm production.
Animal production has improved with the adoption of improved technologies by farmers. These technologies include improved breeding which include laying, meat-production, and dual purpose breed for chicken. So are other animals like the black Bengai goat.

The overall objective of the project is in accordance with the Government Agricultural policy of increasing food production and diversification of the present farming system so as to attain sustainable food security.

Computer Technology Centre
Given that most of the youth lack the direction and defining purpose, they are easily carried away by peer pressure and got misguided. Therefore, the technology centre will be a pathway to redefining their future through learning of different computer skills, programming, website development and software analytical skills.
This project aims to uproot a good number of youth from the threshold of misdirection, social vices and any unproductive venture that may lead them to be in conflict with the law.
They will be put through a robust and excellent training from great and extraordinary professionals that will kick-start them to becoming enviable and responsible citizens through computer technology.
