KAKUTE Projects hosted a three days training in Dodoma city to the beneficiaries of egg incubators, which brought together, end user champions of egg incubators, end user who tested the technology and have challenges, local fabricators, Local government authority, egg incubator suppliers and Solar technology solutions suppliers.
KAKUTE recognize the vital role played by poultry farming in both rural and urban areas in terms of food security, source of income, manure and in a meeting of other social obligations for example ritual. There is huge potential for the growth of poultry farming by considering factors such as availability of lands, high demand of eggs, high demand of chicken meet, as well as high demand for chicks among poultry farmers.
In order to meet these high demand of poultry meet, high demand of eggs, and high demand of chicks/breeds, hatcheries need to maximize chicks’ production. Therefore, hatcheries need to achieve high production efficiency in a sustainable manner, by maximizing the hatchability of healthy chicks with high rate of survive. In achieving these hatcheries need to adopt artificial incubation methods which is more efficiency with huge output in comparing with the natural incubation method.
