Poultry farmers in Ghana advocates for more effective agriculture policies.

Poultry farms are on the verge of collapsing in Ghana if quick and effective policies are not put in place.

Mr. Thomas Adom, the Managing Director of Bossway Farms Company in Kumasi Ejisu Krapa in the Ashanti Region, spoke on the issues faced by poultry farmers, emphasizing the need for the government to come up with measures to help reform the agricultural sector.

In an interview at Ejisu-Krapaea, he stressed that the country’s poultry producers suffered large losses this year due to the bird flu disease, which raced across multiple farms and killed thousands of birds.

He also supported his assertion by citing the high cost of feeding products such as maize, fish meal, and soya beans, among other foods that the birds consume.

Mr Adom, who claimed to have been in the poultry farming business for over 50 years and employed many local youths, has lost about Ghc1.1 million.

The director of Bossway Farms stated that the country’s agriculture sector is in danger of collapse if no remedial actions are taken to revitalize the industry.
