Kenyan poultry farming struggling with high costs

In Kenya, there are a few poultry feeds that are high in protein and relatively cheap. These include:

  1. Maize bran: Maize bran is a byproduct of maize milling and is relatively cheap and high in protein (about 12%). It can be used as a supplement in poultry feed to increase the protein content.
  2. Soybean meal: Soybean meal is a common protein supplement for poultry feed in Kenya. It is high in protein (about 44%) and relatively cheap.
  3. Fishmeal: Fishmeal is another protein-rich feed ingredient that is commonly used in poultry feed in Kenya. It is high in protein (about 65%) and relatively cheap.
  4. Sunflower meal: Sunflower meal is a byproduct of sunflower oil production and is high in protein (about 34%). It is relatively cheap and can be used as a protein supplement in poultry feed.

It’s worth noting that the availability and price of these feeds can vary depending on the region and time of year. It’s always a good idea to shop around and compare prices to get the best deal.
