Niger has enjoyed an unparalleled reputation as a major livestock breeding country since the dawn of time. The second most important activity after agriculture, livestock breeding is generally practiced either through fattening among the sedentary population or through transhumance among the nomads. The last two decades have seen an unprecedented boom in poultry farming. However, access to poultry feed has always been a headache for Nigerien poultry farmers.AVINIGER and NUSEB are two large poultry farms in Niger. In addition to the breeding, both farms also have a poultry feed production component. According to the Niger Poultry Producers' Association, the national need for poultry feed is estimated at 100,000 tons per year and up to 26,000 tons for the urban commune of Niamey alone. From 17,500 francs in normal times, a bag of yellow maize can reach 33,000 francs during the dry season. Indeed, maize is the staple food in poultry production. However, the cultivation of yellow maize has been very little developed in the country. This precious grain has always been imported from Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Togo, Benin, Ghana, and Brazil. The instability of prices, road hassles and multiple risks related to the quality of the maize are the major challenges that the AVINIGER-2SCALE partnership decided to face 3 years ago.
