GES (Government Enhancement Scheme) Program
The GES Program is a product of the Federal Ministry of Agriculture under the Agricultural Transformation Agenda. The program is designed to empower the Livestock Value Chain by linking and strengthening stakeholders involved in the chain i.e. the hatcheries, distributors and farmers; guided by officials of the state and federal government.
Under the 2014 program, poultry farmers in 27 states were given 100 birds, feeds, drugs and vaccines with farmers making a % contribution while the government makes up the difference. Supply is made through an Agro dealer that serves as the distributor.
The expectation of the government is that the program will be a springboard for the farmers to continue, and expand their business of poultry farming. The government has equally through the program exposes the Agro dealer (distributor) and hatcheries to farmers.
A lot of hatcheries competed for the opportunity to be part of the program but Amo Farm Sieberer Hatchery Limited (AFSH) was chosen ahead of other major hatcheries.
