Amo Farm Sieberer Hatchery Limited, renowned for producing the Noiler dual-purpose chicken breed, aligns its mission with the Federal Government’s food security initiative. Commemorating Nigeria’s 63rd Independence Day, the company aims to provide affordable nutritional protein for Nigerians while boosting the nation’s agricultural development.
As a key player in small-scale poultry farming, Amo Farms is committed to enhancing rural protein consumption and creating sustainable income sources, particularly for rural women in Africa. The Noiler, designed for both meat and egg production, aligns with the government’s food security goals.
Dr. Ayoola Oduntan, the Group Managing Director of Amo Farm Sieberer Hatchery Limited, reiterated the company’s dedication to supporting the Federal Government’s food security initiative and the recent state of emergency declared for food sufficiency. He emphasized the importance of collective efforts between the government and the private sector for the well-being of Nigerians.
Dr. Oduntan highlighted Amo Farm’s role in supporting 1.4 million smallholder farmers in Nigeria and Africa through small-scale poultry farming with the Noiler breed. This genetically improved chicken offers high-quality meat and eggs, contributing to the fight against malnutrition.
The Noiler, developed after years of research, is resistant to diseases, produces four times more eggs, and three times more meat compared to native chickens. Amo Farm Sieberer Hatchery Ltd. positions itself as a leader in egg, point-of-lay pullets, cattle, and fish production in Nigeria, aiming to combat poverty, infant mortality, child malnutrition, and gender inequality through the promotion of the Noiler breed.
By creating a chicken that provides both meat and eggs, Amo Farm Sieberer Hatchery Ltd. envisions empowering women in rural communities, improving their status and decision-making power. The company’s commitment reflects a broader dedication to addressing critical national challenges and contributing to Nigeria’s progress in the agricultural sector.
