|Abstract: ||Most developing countries are faced with the problem of bridging the gap between themselves and the industrial nations. They are disadvantaged for not being able to determine the world market prices of their goods which are mostly raw materials. Furthermore they are faced with the challenge of how to provide a nutritious and inexpensive diet for their rapidly increasing populations. The Ashanti Region Development Corporation based in the Ashanti Region felt that a large multipurpose farm could meet this problem and its challenges. To this end a feasibility study was carried out together with the foreign partner pre-presented by Dizengoff Gham Limited. It was established that the project should be about a third of similar one established in Nigeria.
The thesis is therefore is research into how this can be brought into reality. It then comes out with a design of poultry complex to be located at Kwamo. Facilities to be provides in the complex would include poultry houses, feedmill, a Hatchery, a maintenance block, security check points, welfare and administration blocks. In the long run the project would be expected to meet the following objectives:
1. To supply rural and urban communities both in and around Ashanti and beyond protein rich food in sufficient quantities and at affordable cost.
2. To upgrade the quality of life of the surrounding communities by supplying agricultural imputs and knowhow and providing employments to the local populations|
