What is contract growing?
Simply put, you rear the chicks. Vitarich harvests the flock and markets the chickens.
If you think about it, contract growing is easier to manage than any other poultry or livestock venture. Vitarich take care of the feeds, chicks, and technical services. They even take care of marketing. Better still, you need little initial capital because they shoulder the cost of feeds and chicks. This is exactly the kind of business small- and medium-scale entrepreneurs are looking for.
How does it work?
Vitarich provides you with everything you need to start your own business and make it succeed. They provide the day-old-chicks (DOCs), feed support, vaccines, technical services, and other services.
You take care of the housing; labor; power, light, and water; equipment; medication; and other miscellaneous expenses.
Once the chickens are grown, you profit by the kilo. Vitarich harvest the flock and sell the chickens.
Why work with Vitarich?
First of all, Vitarich guarantees the quality and performance of their chicks.
Vitarich uses the world-renowned Cobb broiler chicks. Cobb broiler chicks are superior to other chicks because:
* they have a good initial body weight;
* they have an excellent growth rate which means,
* they develop stronger immunity faster than other chicks,
* they have a lower mortality rate, and
* their cost of brooding is lower;
* they produce customer-preferred round, double-breasted meaty broilers with short big legs.
From hatchery to delivery, Vitarich’s chicks undergo the strictest quality control. After hatching, the chicks are placed in specially designed plastic crates and are then immediately delivered to your farm. When the chicks arrive, their technical personnel will be with you as you break open the Quality Control Seal to inspect and count the chicks. Vitarich were so confident about their Cobb chicks, that you’re entitled to reject chicks that are apparently weak due to transport or other factors such as poor climate.
Second, they provide the best support possible.
