FEGEOSTOM LIVESTOCK is involved in the business of breeding cows, bulls, oxen, bullocks, steer and calf for their meat, milk and other cattle products. We are registered and licensed in Nigeria as commercial cattle breeders. Fegeostom is located in Nigeria, a country blessed with vast land suitable for agricultural practices, our cattle business inclusive.

While establishing this business, a wealth of knowledge of the owner, as gathered from The Federal University of Agriculture Abeokuta and Animal Production and Health Department of The Federal University of Technology, Akure is employed. Apart from academic knowledge, we also apply practical knowledge gained from the cattle breeders from Northern Nigeria.

Location

Our ranch is located on an acre of land around Sekona in Osun State. We chose this location because of the easy access to clean water, cattle market, feeds, and the safety of our livestock. At Fegeostom, we employ both the ranching and the herding system of rearing the cattle.

This is to exploit the benefits of these two systems while avoiding their disadvantages. Opening and running the ranch is capital-intensive and man-hour demanding, even though it is investor-friendly. To ease this, we’ve employed herders to take the cattle out for food occasionally. Not only has this reduced the cost, but it has also made our cattle more physically fit.

Our vision statement

To be the largest producer of cattle and its products in Nigeria.

Our mission statement

  • Breed the finest cattle in Nigeria
  • Produce and process beef and milk of the highest quality in commercial quantities.
  • Supply both the local and international market.

Our business structure

We started small with 50 cows in all and we are expanding from the current 124 cows to 250 cows. We are looking forward to more in the future. We have a mix of West African Dwarf Shorthorn (Muturu), Keteku, and N’dama for meat and Guernsey Sokoto Gudali, Adamawa Gudali, and White Fulani for milk. We are, in essence, a mixed brand cattle producer as we produce both for meat and dairy.

Only qualified, hardworking, animal-friendly, customer-centric, dedicated, and competent hands are employed. Our current structure: the manager, accountant, ranch supervisor, sales and marketing officers, and field employees.

Our strength

The size of our business is a great strength in the sense that only a few have the number of cows we have and our vision to expand will also strengthen the business more. Another strength is that we use technology for the production and processing of cattle products. We are customer-oriented and have competent and dedicated hands to tend to the needs of the cattle.

Weakness

Our major weakness is the capital required for the acquisition and maintenance of machinery for adding value to our cattle product. For example, machine to make canned beef. We are sourcing for funds to overcome this weakness and in a short while, we will overcome this.

Opportunities

Growing markets:  a lot of industries and individuals will source for our products as cow product especially at events, hotels, restaurants, and households.

Threats

The major threat is the government policies that affect the income of our customers. Another is the security challenge and theft of cows.

Market Analysis for Cattle rearing Business plan in Nigeria 

The cattle business is evergreen in Nigeria with a market always ready. Households represent a large percentage of the market we serve. They are the end consumer of cattle produce such as meat (beef), milk, and skin. Other markets are the businesses that rely on agricultural produce for production. Examples are milk, yoghurt, cheese-making factories, skins-processing factories (for leather products like bags and belts), and butchers.

Our main competitive advantage is effective and reliable cattle-rearing processes that enable us to produce and process cattle products at a competitive price. While our price is competitive, our standard is not compromised. An all-round standard is ensured in the processes involved with our business.  We have a good network of suppliers and customers because we build and maintain an excellent relationship.

We are improving on our current marketing strategies. The modified marketing strategies are as follows:

  • Advertisement on TV, Radio, social media, agricultural magazine, and other agro-allied platforms
  • Production and sending of our magazine, brochure, introductory letter and product catalogue to hotels, restaurants, and agricultural merchants.
  • Organize and attend Agricultural Expos.
  • Direct marketing.
  • Mouth referrals from satisfied customers.
