Country: Nigeria Age: 31 Gender: Male
Preferred Host Placements: Livestock: other / Field Crops / Nursery/Green houseType of placement sought and hands-on experience:
My general agricultural experience began as an agricultural student and until today. This has been in both livestock and organic farming, but with keen interest in livestock. This is because in almost all cases livestock farming provides daily return oriented activities for the farmers all year round. Poultry with the right rearing methodology produces eggs steadily year round, same as diary with cow milk production. This gives every farmer a daily motivational drive that is promoted by financial return and satisfaction.
Also, organic farming is important to me because it promotes the use of crop rotations and cover crops, which goes in line with the livestock area of agricultural in order to increase the organic products that will be good for human consumption.
