What Is a Business Plan?

A business plan provides a snapshot of your poultry farm as it stands today, and lays out your growth plan for the next five years. It explains your business goals and your strategy for reaching them. It also includes market research to support your plans.

Why You Need a Business Plan

If you’re looking to start a poultry farm, or grow your existing poultry farm, you need a business plan. A business plan will help you raise funding, if needed, and plan out the growth of your poultry farm in order to improve your chances of success. Your poultry farming business plan is a living document that should be updated annually as your company grows and changes.

Sources of Funding for Poultry Farms

With regards to funding, the main sources of funding for a poultry farm are personal savings, credit cards, USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) loans, bank loans, and angel investors. With regards to bank loans, banks will want to review your business plan and gain confidence that you will be able to repay your loan and interest. To acquire this confidence, the loan officer will not only want to confirm that your financials are reasonable, but they will also want to see a professional plan. Such a plan will give them the confidence that you can successfully and professionally operate a business. Personal savings and USDA FSA loans are the most common funding paths for poultry farm.

How to write a business plan for a chicken farm.

If you want to start a poultry farm or expand your current one, you need a business plan. We detail each section of a traditional business plan for a poultry farming business.

Executive Summary

Your executive summary provides an introduction to your business plan, but it is normally the last section you write because it provides a summary of each key section of your plan.

The goal of your Executive Summary is to quickly engage the reader. Explain to them the type of poultry farm you are operating and its status. For example, are you a startup, do you have a poultry farm business that you would like to grow, or are you operating poultry farm businesses in multiple locations?

Next, provide an overview of each of the subsequent sections of your plan. For example, give a brief overview of the poultry farm industry. Discuss the type of poultry farm you are operating. Detail your direct competitors. Give an overview of your target customers. Provide a snapshot of your marketing plan. Identify the key members of your team. And offer an overview of your financial plan.  

Company Analysis

In your company analysis, you will detail the type of poultry farm you are operating.

For example, you might operate one of the following types of poultry farms:

  • Breeder Farms : this type of poultry farm produces hatching eggs for delivery to the hatchery. After the 21 day incubation period, the hatchery then delivers the baby chicks to the broiler houses.
  • Broiler Farms: this type of farm produces a 2.5 lb. to 8 lb. bird in 4 to 8 weeks which is processed for various types of retail sale to consumers, grocery stores or fast food chains as whole birds, cut-up breast, wings, thigh, drumsticks, deboned breast meat, or further processed pieces.
  • Pullet Farms: this type of poultry farm produces pullets and roosters to be delivered to a breeder hen house at 20-22 weeks old when they are sexually mature to breed and lay eggs.

In addition to explaining the type of poultry farming business you will operate, the Company Analysis section of your business plan needs to provide background on the business.

Include answers to question such as:

  • When and why did you start the business?
  • What milestones have you achieved to date? Milestones could include the number of chickens and/or turkeys produced, number of production contracts, etc.
  • Your legal structure. Are you incorporated as an S-Corp? An LLC? A sole proprietorship? Explain your legal structure here.

Industry Analysis

In your industry analysis, you need to provide an overview of the poultry farm industry.

While this may seem unnecessary, it serves multiple purposes.

First, researching the poultry farm industry educates you. It helps you understand the market in which you are operating.

Secondly, market research can improve your strategy, particularly if your research identifies market trends.

The third reason for market research is to prove to readers that you are an expert in your industry. By conducting the research and presenting it in your plan, you achieve just that.

The following questions should be answered in the industry analysis section of your poultry farming business plan:

  • How big is the poultry farm industry (in dollars)?
  • Is the market declining or increasing?
  • Who are the key competitors in the market?
  • Who are the key suppliers in the market?
  • What trends are affecting the industry?
  • What is the industry’s growth forecast over the next 5 – 10 years?
  • What is the relevant market size? That is, how big is the potential market for your poultry farm business? You can extrapolate such a figure by assessing the size of the market in the entire country and then applying that figure to your target market.

Customer Analysis

The customer analysis section of your poultry farming business plan must detail the customers you serve and/or expect to serve.

The following are examples of customer segments: processors, grocery stores, and restaurants.

As you can imagine, the customer segment(s) you choose will have a great impact on the type of poultry farm business you operate. Clearly, processors would respond to different marketing promotions than restaurants, for example.

Try to break out your target customers in terms of their demographic and psychographic profiles. With regards to demographics, include a discussion of the ages, genders, locations and income levels of the customers you seek to serve. Because most poultry farm businesses primarily serve customers living in their same region, such demographic information is easy to find on government websites.

Psychographic profiles explain the wants and needs of your target customers. The more you can understand and define these needs, the better you will do in attracting and retaining your customers.

Competitive Analysis

Your competitive analysis should identify the indirect and direct competitors your business faces and then focus on the latter.

Direct competitors are other poultry farm businesses.

Indirect competitors are other options that customers have to purchase from that aren’t direct competitors. This includes producers of other meat such as beef, pork, or fish, as well as producers of meat alternatives. You need to mention such competition as well.

With regards to direct competition, you want to describe the other poultry farms with which you compete. Most likely, your direct competitors will be poultry farms located very close to your location.

For each such competitor, provide an overview of their businesses and document their strengths and weaknesses. Unless you once worked at your competitors’ businesses, it will be impossible to know everything about them. But you should be able to find out key things about them such as:

  • What types of customers do they serve?
  • What kinds of poultry do they produce (breeders, broilers, pullets)?
  • What is their pricing (premium, low, etc.)?
  • What are they good at?
  • What are their weaknesses?

With regards to the last two questions, think about your answers from the customers’ perspective. And don’t be afraid to ask your competitors’ customers what they like most and least about them.

The final part of your competitive analysis section is to document your areas of competitive advantage. For example:

  • Will you use superior production methods?
  • Will you provide services that your competitors don’t offer?
  • Will you provide better customer service?
  • Will you offer better pricing?

Think about ways you will outperform your competition and document them in this section of your plan.  

Marketing Plan

Traditionally, a marketing plan includes the four P’s: Product, Price, Place, and Promotion. For a poultry farm business plan, your marketing plan should include the following:

Product : In the product section, you should reiterate the type of poultry farm company that you documented in your Company Analysis. Then, detail the specific products you will be offering. For example, in addition to traditional poultry, will you provide organic or cage-free poultry?

Price : Document the prices you will offer and how they compare to your competitors. Essentially in the product and price sub-sections of your marketing plan, you are presenting the products and services you offer and their prices.

Place : Place refers to the location of your poultry farm company. Document your location and mention how the location will impact your success. For example, is your poultry farm located near a processing facility, near a transportation hub, etc. Discuss how your location might be the ideal location for your customers.

Promotions : The final part of your poultry farm marketing plan is the promotions section. Here you will document how you will drive customers to your location(s). The following are some promotional methods you might consider:

  • Advertising in trade papers and magazines
  • Reaching out to local agriculture extension offices
  • Social media marketing
  • Local radio advertising

Operations Plan

While the earlier sections of your business plan explained your goals, your operations plan describes how you will meet them. Your operations plan should have two distinct sections as follows.

Everyday short-term processes include all of the tasks involved in running your poultry farm, including animal care / feeding, flock supervision, animal transportation, sourcing feed, etc.

Long-term goals are the milestones you hope to achieve. These could include the dates when you expect to sign your 20th production contract, or when you hope to reach $X in revenue. It could also be when you expect to expand your poultry farm to a new location.  

Management Team

To demonstrate your poultry farm’s ability to succeed, a strong management team is essential. Highlight your key players’ backgrounds, emphasizing those skills and experiences that prove their ability to grow a company.

Ideally you and/or your team members have direct experience in managing poultry farms. If so, highlight this experience and expertise. But also highlight any experience that you think will help your business succeed.

If your team is lacking, consider assembling an advisory board. An advisory board would include 2 to 8 individuals who would act like mentors to your business. They would help answer questions and provide strategic guidance. If needed, look for advisory board members with experience in managing farms or successfully running small businesses.  

Financial Plan

Your financial plan should include your 5-year financial statement broken out both monthly or quarterly for the first year and then annually. Your financial statements include your income statement, balance sheet and cash flow statements.

Income Statement

An income statement is more commonly called a Profit and Loss statement or P&L. It shows your revenues and then subtracts your costs to show whether you turned a profit or not.

In developing your income statement, you need to devise assumptions. For example, will you supply 50 restaurants, or produce 2,000 birds for processing each month? And will sales grow by 2% or 10% per year? As you can imagine, your choice of assumptions will greatly impact the financial forecasts for your business. As much as possible, conduct research to try to root your assumptions in reality.

Balance Sheets

Balance sheets show your assets and liabilities. While balance sheets can include much information, try to simplify them to the key items you need to know about. For instance, if you spend $50,000 on building out your poultry farming business, this will not give you immediate profits. Rather it is an asset that will hopefully help you generate profits for years to come. Likewise, if a bank writes you a check for $50,000, you don’t need to pay it back immediately. Rather, that is a liability you will pay back over time.

Cash Flow Statement

Your cash flow statement will help determine how much money you need to start or grow your business, and make sure you never run out of money. What most entrepreneurs and business owners don’t realize is that you can turn a profit but run out of money and go bankrupt.

In developing your Income Statement and Balance Sheets be sure to include several of the key costs needed in starting or growing a poultry farm business:

  • Location build-out including design fees, construction, etc.
  • Cost of equipment and supplies
  • Payroll or salaries paid to staff
  • Business insurance
  • Taxes and permits
  • Legal expenses

Attach your full financial projections in the appendix of your plan along with any supporting documents that make your plan more compelling. For example, you might include your farm title or lease, or blueprints of the production facility.  

Putting together a business plan for your poultry farm is a worthwhile endeavor. If you follow the template above, by the time you are done, you will truly be an expert. You will really understand the poultry farm industry, your competition, and your customers. You will have developed a marketing plan and will really understand what it takes to launch and grow a successful poultry farming business.

Poultry Farm Business Plan

You’ve come to the right place to create your Poultry Farm business plan.

We have helped over 1,000 entrepreneurs and business owners create business plans and many have used them to start or grow their Poultry Farms.

Below is a template to help you create each section of your Poultry Farming business plan.

Executive Summary

Business overview.

Smith Poultry Farm is a new farm business located in Mason City, Iowa. The business is a newly established farm founded by John and Sue Smith. As native Iowans, the couple has spent their life in the farming industry as their families have established farms throughout Iowa. Currently, there is a poultry shortage throughout the midwestern United States as some farms have been forced to shut down their business due to rising costs, labor shortage, and higher technology standards. John and Sue have decided to take this opportunity to alleviate the poultry shortage as well as finally establish the farm they have been planning to do for the past six years.

As native Iowans, John and Sue have already recruited a team of farmhands that have extensive experience working in poultry farms. Most of them have been recently laid off from other poultry farms that have shut down their operations.

John and Sue plan on starting with 5,000 chickens, 500 turkeys, and 100 ducks on 10 acres of land. Their business operations will be centered around daily processes and procedures to tend to the chickens and prepare them for packaging for resale and distribution.

John Smith was born and raised on a local farm and has been working in farms most of his life. He left to pursue his agriculture degree from Iowa State and returned to work full-time at his father’s large farm. That farm produces beef, poultry, pork, and vegetables. Once he married Sue, the couple decided that they would begin to save up to pursue a farm of their own.

Sue Smith was raised on a farm as well. Once she graduated from high school, she attended Iowa State to pursue a degree in Business Administration. It was there where she met John and planned for their future farm where he would manage the farm operations and she would be in charge of the financial management and administration of the poultry farm operations.

Smith Poultry Farm will be able to achieve success by offering the following competitive advantages:

  • Ownership has extensive experience and knowledge in the poultry farming industry.
  • Owners will invest in the latest technology and equipment to make their poultry farm the most superior in the Midwest.
  • Smith Poultry Farm will breed high quality chickens, turkeys, and ducks in order to produce the freshest and quality poultry.

Financial Highlights

Smith Poultry Farm is seeking $500,000 in debt financing to launch its property management business. The funding will be dedicated towards securing the farm land and purchasing the necessary equipment and supplies. Funding will also be dedicated towards three months of overhead costs to include payroll of the staff, mortgage, and marketing costs for the poultry farm. The breakout of the funding is below:

  • Purchase 10 acres of farmland: $100,000

Myson Poultry Farm

Myson Poultry Farm is a modern, multi-national, protein-focused food company that produces approximately 20% of the beef, pork, and chicken in the United States. Along with its subsidiaries, the company operates a food company worldwide. The company began during the Great Depression when the eldest Myson began selling chickens. A few decades later, Myson’s son grew it into the large company it is today and is one of the largest poultry producers and distributors in the world.

By investing in technology, Myson was able to grow the brand. Through the development of better feeds and better disease control methods, chickens were maturing more quickly. These improvements, combined with increased competition, meant lower prices for consumers and households were able to purchase their poultry products in larger quantities.

Iowa Poultry Farm

Iowa Poultry Farms started in the 1920s when Liam Nelson sold and traded eggs by the dozen as a means to put food on the table for his family. Four generations later, the Nelson family has grown the business year-over-year to continue to meet the changing needs of the egg and pullet industry. More than 90 years of experience has established Iowa Poultry Farm as a well-respected pullet and hatching business as well as a reliant commercial egg producer under the current leadership.

The strength of Iowa Poultry Farm began when master plans for growth from the late 1980s to present day have produced new and improved pullet production facilities that have the capacity to accommodate the growth of the majority of the pullets in NPF’s proprietary facilities. Recent capital development has been invested in hatchery and breeder facilities that have the capacity to produce up to 9 million female chicks per year as well as supplementary aviary growing facilities for both cage-free and floor-grown conventional pullets.

Iowa Poultry Farm continues to innovate as a pullet and hatching business under the leadership of Frank and his son, Brett.

Good Cluck Poultry Farm

Good Cluck Poultry Farm maintains more than 50,000 breeders on its company owned farms. The company currently hatches and sells 79 standard chicken breeds/varieties, 58 breeds/varieties of bantams, 9 breeds of ducks, 3 breeds of geese, and 4 breeds/varieties of guineas. In addition, Good Cluck has available, as a service to its customers, 9 heritage breeds of turkeys, pheasants, and chukar.

Good Cluck certainly has good luck. While many hatcheries have been forced to close, Good Cluck Poultry Farm has become a leader in producing non-commercial poultry annually, selling more than six million items of baby poultry.

Good Cluck’s full list of products are white egg layers, brown egg layers, colored egg layers, standard assortments, broilers, crested chickens, feather legged bantams, bantam assortments, clean leg bantams, ducks, geese, guineas, turkeys, pheasants, chukar, and supplies.

What are the Steps To Start a Poultry Farm Business?

Starting a poultry farm business can be an exciting endeavor. Having a clear roadmap of the steps to start a business will help you stay focused on your goals and get started faster.

1. Develop A Poultry Farm Business Plan - The first step in starting a business is to create a detailed poultry business plan that outlines all aspects of the venture. This should include potential market size and target customers, the services or products you will offer, pricing strategies and a detailed financial forecast.  

2. Choose Your Legal Structure - It's important to select an appropriate legal entity for your poultry farm business. This could be a limited liability company (LLC), corporation, partnership, or sole proprietorship. Each type has its own benefits and drawbacks so it’s important to do research and choose wisely so that your poultry farm business is in compliance with local laws.

3. Register Your Poultry Farm Business - Once you have chosen a legal structure, the next step is to register your poultry farm business with the government or state where you’re operating from. This includes obtaining licenses and permits as required by federal, state, and local laws. 

4. Identify Financing Options - It’s likely that you’ll need some capital to start your poultry farm business, so take some time to identify what financing options are available such as bank loans, investor funding, grants, or crowdfunding platforms. 

5. Choose a Location - Whether you plan on operating out of a physical location or not, you should always have an idea of where you’ll be based should it become necessary in the future as well as what kind of space would be suitable for your operations. 

6. Hire Employees - There are several ways to find qualified employees including job boards like LinkedIn or Indeed as well as hiring agencies if needed – depending on what type of employees you need it might also be more effective to reach out directly through networking events. 

7. Acquire Necessary Poultry Farm Equipment & Supplies - In order to start your poultry farm business, you'll need to purchase all of the necessary equipment and supplies to run a successful operation. 

8. Market & Promote Your Business - Once you have all the necessary pieces in place, it’s time to start promoting and marketing your poultry farm business. This includes creating a website, utilizing social media platforms like Facebook or Twitter, and having an effective Search Engine Optimization (SEO) strategy.

The Ultimate Poultry Farming Business Planning Template

My first step was to construct what I consider to be the most complete poultry farming business plan template possible.

The kind of thing that covers both bases of:

  • helping to provide clarity to your thoughts for rolling out a successful poultry business launch
  • communicating an attractive proposal to potential stakeholders and investors

Pouring in over 50,000+ hours of strategic business consulting experience which spans:

  • global best practice insights and technology
  • corporate currency exchange
  • project management
  • financial advisor and stockbroker
  • freelance business management advisor

…I decided upon the following outline template:

Executive Summary

Why is it needed?

How will it deliver?

What are the financial rewards of investment?

Industry Analysis

Want a breakdown of what each part really contains?

That’s EXACTLY what’s up next…

Step #2: Download The Poultry Farm Business Plan Analysis Playbook

As shared above, I’ve taken the time to draft what I am absolutely certain is THE market leading poultry farming business plan template – FULL STOP.

It’s got it all.

But what about the detail? And how should it be used?

Business planning analysis: the KEY to using my business plan template – like a PRO

Like so many business planning template solutions out there like bPlans, for example, they do a good job of setting a solid format, BUT…

…where they FALL SHORT is in giving you some real-life examples of how to APPLY the template .

In other words,

Most business planning tools out there don’t give you examples of how real poultry businesses measure up with the tool.

And because of this, those other planning tools leave you GUESSING what to do with it.

So you end up using it as a first-time pupil uses an exercise book:

Unskillfully and regrettably (“…don’t want to go back there again if I can help it…”).

When actually, what you NEED is a dynamic, “can’t put it down”, interactive ACTION plan – with bite.

…this is the reason I wrote this series of poultry farming business planning analyses.

Here’s what my business plan analysis will do for you…

To take all the guesswork and wandering out of planning your poultry business.

And to show you EXACTLY HOW a real-life poultry start-up success story marries up with my winning business planning formula…

…giving expert insight into how BEST to use the template to plan your own success.

The result?

(Way much better than just templates or homework…)

Step-by-step,   proven insights of what REALLY works and why in every step of writing your own poultry business plan.

= 1st rate consultancy & on-the-shoulder advice – at your own pace ( & at only a fraction of the price ).

So, why is an eBook the IDEAL partner to helping your write your poultry farming business plan?

(I’m glad you asked!)

Rather than present you with empty template boxes to fill out (which – let’s face it – offers zero value, both to you and potential investors)…

…instead,

My eBook called, Poultry Plan It – shows you EXACTLY how to:

  • skillfully deliver and
  • expertly pitch

…your poultry business plan to achieve 1 thing:

To Win Investment .

Poultry Project Reporter 2.0 – Insider’s Guide: the ‘grain-by-grain’ financial analysis EVERY poultry business plan needs

  • …a ‘case study based’ user guide for license holders of my proprietary software ‘Poultry Project Reporter’ – to find out ALL the inside hints and tips for producing rock solid financial projections.

Here’s a quick snippet of the level of breakdown I provide:

…and there are many more requests like this in my inbox.

It seems when it comes to business planning help, poultry farmers and professionals alike are interested in scanning sample data too.

( Not just templates )

Sample papers: a GREAT way for self-assessing if your business plan is up to scratch

If you ask me, examples are without doubt the BEST way to learn.

Whenever I’m looking to work out a business model I always look for working models that already exist.

Never contrived or manufactured formulas.

As an adult, I don’t like to be spoon-fed. I learn best when I’m left a little room to figure things out myself.

Let’s take it back to class…

…why are past exam papers and examiner notes such a popular revision method?

SELF-ASSESSMENT.

(i.e. finding out for yourself how you measure up against standard.)

My preferred method of advanced learning.

And I don’t think I am alone in this.

This is exactly why I put together these sample poultry farming data plans – both layer and broiler models.

I left out any country bias, so these are a universal fit to any and every economy.

What do the samples contain?

There are 2 typical planning problems that these plans are designed to solve:

  • Input and output VARIABLES,
  • related to the SCALE and MODEL of your farm.

business plan for poultry farming sample

Master The Poultry Business - Like a Pro!

Poultry Courses Online - most actionable and interactive online poultry course.

In other words, these samples are shortcuts or crib notes for literally telling you if your planning progress is:

  • en-route for success, or;
  • taking a wrong turn .

I’ve arranged the samples according to the following attributes :

Broiler farming rearing models

  • All-In-All-Out

Layer farming rearing models

Input/Output variable

  • Feed consumption
  • Production (meat or eggs)
  • Broiler by product

These lists above are like ingredients to prescribed recipes.

Or, elements of an equation for solving a problem.

Mix them together in the right order and you answer critical questions within your poultry farm business plan.

Want an example?

The sample plans above will answer questions like,

“How much manure will a 2,000 bird broiler farm produce annually over 6 years, using the 4+1 rearing method?” Or, “How many eggs will a 5,000 layer farm produce annually over 6 years, using the 1+2 rearing method?”

Simply pull the relevant data set and immediately land your finger on the answer.

A convenient ‘plug-in’ to EVERY poultry farming business plan

Another short falling of traditional business planning templates is that they are  start-up focused .

It makes the value gained from them short-lived.

Think of it this way…

When you’ve finally launched your business, that’s just the beginning and not the end.

At the very least, you should have another 6 years on top of actually running your business.

If your templates are ONLY valid for start-up,

Then what do you use to keep your ongoing plans in order ?

Crush investment risk with my business management templates

Arguably, running the business is a far more risky phase of investment – most of all because now you have made a material commitment.

Therefore, you carry the potential of loss.

And business management also just happens to be the most challenging discipline to hold.

Because you’ve got SO MUCH going on all at the same time.

And staying organised becomes more and more difficult with every day that goes by.

CHAOS costs …

  • you lose foresight, you lose track of progress and ultimately you lose money.

ORGANISATION profits …

you gain vision, you gain awareness and ultimately make money.

Business Management Templates

These templates are designed to help you stay on top.

This is a USDA eBook (United States Department of Agriculture – Farmers’ Bulletin 1614) from 1929.

(That’s right – it’s almost 100 years old!)

But testament to ‘things done well’…

…this evergreen piece of invaluable financial coaching for poultry farmers still holds true today, as when it was 1st published.

Business Records for Poultry Keepers: “Simply…DON’T attempt to write your poultry business plan without it.”

The motto of the eBook? “It literally pays for poultry farmers to keep records of current operations to guide their efforts in profitable directions.” In fact the book gives the following 6 great   reasons why you need this download : (1) “… reduce the guesswork in poultry farming by helping the farmer to determine the actual reasons for poultry profits and losses,” (2) “… show the relative efficiency of different methods of production and marketing,” (3) “…make it possible for a poultry keeper to compare his results with published information (benchmark) on many poultrymen’s problems,” (4) “… show the financial progress a poultry keeper has made in his business,” (5) “… furnish information for credit statements when funds are borrowed,” (6) “… help to prevent disputes by serving as a check on business dealings.”

When I began writing The Big Book Project, I had one goal in mind:

To demystify investment proposal writing for start-up farmers.

business plan for poultry farming sample

By trawling the endless blog posts and comments in the small agribiz space online,

It became clear that MANY of us have the ambition to start up.

  • see borrowing as the only root
  • underestimate their business plan as just a means of getting a loan
  • grossly misunderstand how to model production to make a profit

…and I desperately wanted to change turn this on its head.

Only, I made up my mind that I wasn’t going to go the traditional consulting route .

  • Too expensive
  • VERY limited
  • Anti self-sufficiency ( clients grow dependant )

So, what were the alternatives to consulting?

  • Perhaps, author a book
  • Develop a proprietary software
  • Run online courses

…these were just a few.

Then after extensive research and thinking things through…

…I settled for all 3 of the above alternatives, wrapped up into one package:

A book, plus bespoke software and an online course.

Enter: The Big Book Project

The Big Book Project ( https://thebigbookproject.org )

  • An online eBook – pushed by a blog.
  • A spin-off digital business planning tool called Poultry Project Reporter.
  • And an online poultry farming course called Advanced Poultry Pick-Up.

In 2 years only,

the blog amassed 170,094 new search engine visitors  alone

business plan for poultry farming sample

PLUS , a little over 8,000 newsletter subscribers too.

Mission accomplished.

(Well, almost – “… but what about that software? “)

Actually, one of the most popular enquiries received through my blog is for help writing poultry business proposals .

With all the best intentions in the world, there’s just not enough of me to go around the entire subscriber base giving out 1-to-1 proposal writing help.

So, I did the next best thing.

I made my advice automated (with the help of some handy digital tools) and wrote it one time only.

The result was Poultry Project Reporter and now we have just launched version 2.

What is Poultry Project Reporter 2.0?

Poultry Project Reporter 2.0: the fastest way of writing a professional poultry farming proposal

Poultry farming as a topic is MASSIVE worldwide.

It seems, when it comes to the subject matter of poultry farming, every country is both ‘ stalking it ‘ and ‘ talking it ‘ online.

business plan for poultry farming sample

These stats from my blog above tell the tale of poultry farming and its popularity. It literally reaches every country in the world .

And despite all this talk about poultry farming business plans…

…I find a large percentage of the ‘audience’ has no capital funding availability (whether saved or borrowed) . Of course, this is totally natural and a reality for the majority, AND if you ask me a great ADVANTAGE.

Take this reader of my blog:

business plan for poultry farming sample

It seems many see a lack of capital as a barrier to entry when it comes to layer or broiler farming.

“But who said anything about needing significant capital to start up a profitable poultry business ?”

One of the BIGGEST attractions to poultry farming surely is the LOW BARRIER to entry , LOW SETUP costs and yet HIGH profitability and cash flow potential.

But as with many theories, I suppose it remains ‘up in the air (talked about)’ until someone makes it tangible…material…possible.

This is the principle that encouraged me to step up to the plate in an attempt to ‘bat out of the park’ all doubt surrounding it…

…and finally, answer the question:

Can you start up a poultry farm with zero capital?

Yes, you can start a poultry farm with no available capital.

Here’s how…

Zero Debt Poultry Farming: the MOST REWARDING way to start, scale and establish a leading egg or chicken business

In my line of work as a consultant (professional problem solver) – the one discipline that keeps my craft alive is RESEARCH.

And as such, I come across all kinds of neat fixes that may not be for the time I find them,

But are bound to come in handy some time.

So, much like a handyman or craftsman, not wanting to let anything go that could be of use,

I end up keeping a stash of these in a ‘kind of’ strategic toolbox.

When enough time passes by whilst researching related topics,

I get enough of a head of steam to begin compiling an eBook.

This is my process.

And using this I wrote ‘ Zero Debt Poultry: Business Startup Plan ‘.

business plan for poultry farming sample

It’s a strategic playbook and secret formula for how (with no borrowings or savings) you:

  • turn your poultry startup idea into a market-leading farming enterprise
  • BEFORE you yield your 1st egg or carcass .

I had to refrain from using the phrase, “Masterclasses”…a bit presumptuous for my liking.

Aren’t we always needing to ‘add on’ – even after many years of experience? Are ever really the finished article?

Whatever your answer to those questions is,

I do think what is indisputable is the benefit of someone else’s EXPERIENCE when you don’t have any…

… experience saves loss …

…loss of:

…and in the case of business startup, the benefit of experience in some critical areas can be the difference between success and failure.

And where so much is riding on you making it work,

Getting the right experience is HIGHLY valued.

Equally, identifying the most advantageous area of learning carries importance.

So, what area of learning would you say has the most impact on farming success?

According to this study , ‘ Farm Business Management Skills a Missing Link For Smallholder Farmers: A Case Of Malingunde, Malawi ‘ (European Journal of Business and Innovation Research 2016): Just one of many studies which declare a link between business management discipline and better economic output . Other quotes from the study bear reference to previous works: “Generally, management is a human responsibility and skill that drives economic activities and development ( Oghojafor et al, 2012 ).” “Smallholder farmers need to be better equipped with business management skills if they are to play a central role in improving agricultural productivity ( Mohit, 2012 ).”

So, there you have it – business management is the most influential skill set you could acquire for succeeding with your poultry startup.

But is there really a shortage of business management material on the internet?

Not according to Google,

business plan for poultry farming sample

As you can see above, it took Google 0.6 seconds to return almost 6 BILLION results for the search term ‘business management’.

That’s a FLOOD of management content.

But…I ask:

  • Is all of it good ? Or at least suitable for a startup poultry farmer?
  • Also, where do you begin ?

To save you ENDLESS wandering from page to page online,

I have neatly packaged a power-packed portfolio of business management tutorials tailor-made for EVERY startup farmer…

…called “Grow AgriBusiness Faster Classes”

Grow AgriBusiness Faster Classes: instantly download 15 years of 1st class management expertise ( & speed up your poultry profits )

The purpose of these tutorials is to make common with you some of the most valuable business management lessons learned in my 15 years of management.

They span a corporate and independent consulting career, including:

  • global best practice
  • financial investments
  • small business strategy

…to make hard things simple for you to ‘master’ (…there, I’ve said it now…) to save you any potential material losses of getting it wrong.

These lessons should help you to get it right, 1st time.

The GREAT thing about these tutorials also is that they are all written from 1st hand experiences and lessons learned . Nothing academic – all true to life .

A Sample Poultry Farming Business Plan Template

1. industry overview.

The agricultural industry of which poultry farming and egg production is a subset of is no doubt among the leading industry in most countries of the world; it is the industry that produces chicken and eggs for the populace.

Because of the significant role the agriculture sector plays, the government of most countries ensures that they go all the way to subsidize seedlings, fertilizers, and farming implements and machinery for farmers and also encourage entrepreneurs to go into commercial farming (poultry farming inclusive).

Hens, various birds, quails, guinea fowls, ducks et al are all birds that can be comfortably reared in a poultry farm. Chicken and birds are widely consumed in all parts of the world hence there is a large market for poultry farmers. If you are looking towards starting a livestock breeding business, then one of your options is to settle for poultry farming.

Poultry farming is a highly thriving and profitable business venture. Aside from the fact that people consume birds and chickens et al, supply of eggs is also a major source of revenue generation for poultry farmer. Players in the poultry farming and egg production industry basically raise chickens for meat, and egg production. The eggs produced may be sold for use as table eggs or hatching eggs.

The Poultry Farm and Egg Production Company Industry is indeed a very large industry and pretty much thriving in all parts of the world especially in developed countries such as United States of America, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Australia and Italy et al.

Statistics has it that in the united states of America alone, there are about 30,000 licensed and registered poultry farm and egg production company directly responsible for employing about 280,800 employees and indirectly responsible for employing roughly 1,339,900.

The industry rakes in a whooping sum of $10 billion annually with an annual growth rate projected at 6.1 percent. It is important to state that the establishments with a lion share of the available market in this industry are Cal – Maine, Land O’Lake, Inc., Michael Foods and Rose Acres Farms.

Statistics also has it that an estimate of about 35 companies are involved in the business of raising, processing and marketing chickens on a  commercial level; they export chickens, processed chickens and eggs to other countries of the world.

It is on record that Americans consume more chicken than anyone else in the world – more than 90 pounds per capita in 2015 – the number one protein consumed in the United States. So also, in 2015, almost 9 billion broiler chickens, weighing 53 billion pounds, live – weight, were produced. More than 40 billion pounds of chicken product was marketed, measured on a ready-to-cook basis.

The United States has the largest broiler chicken industry in the world, and about 19 percent of egg and chicken production was exported to other countries in 2015.Research conducted shows that the top 5 broiler producing states in the US are Georgia, Arkansas, Alabama, North Carolina and Mississippi.

If you are looking towards leveraging on the agriculture industry to generate huge income, then one of your best bet is to start a poultry farm and egg production business.

One thing is certain about starting poultry farming and egg production business, if you are able to conduct your market research and feasibility studies , you are more likely not going to struggle to sell your eggs and chickens because there are always food processing companies and consumers out there who are ready to buy from you.

The table shows all the different sources of funds, like loans or investments, and how they will be used for expenses such as buying equipment. 

A trustworthy financial forecast is a necessary component of any business plan for a poultry farm, but it is not the only piece of information needed.

To get a holistic view of your business, readers will also need to understand the context behind the numbers - and that comes from the written part of your poultry farm business plan, which we are going to be looking at next.

The written part of a poultry business plan is composed of seven main sections:

The executive summary

The presentation of the company, the products and services section, the market analysis, the strategy section, the operations section.

  • The financial plan

The executive summary section of your poultry business plan should give an overview of the other six sections of the business plan (above) and should cover the following:

  • A thorough overview of the poultry business
  • Your goals and objectives
  • Your business strategy
  • The target market
  • The organisational structure of your business
  • Key financials and funding requirements

The executive summary section of your business plan should grab the attention of readers and encourage them to read the rest of the business plan

When writing this section of your business plan, you should cover the structure and ownership of the farm, its location, and its management team. 

The legal structure of the farm, such as whether it is a sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, etc., as well as any ownership details, such as who owns what stake in the business and how that might influence decision-making, should be clearly described.

Next, information regarding the poultry farm's location must be presented to give readers a better understanding of its potential customer base. Providing location data, such as the street address and nearby cities and transport infrastructure will give potential investors an idea of how accessible the farm is for customers.

Lastly, a description of the management team and each individual's qualifications and experience in operating a poultry farm should be included. 

Through this information, potential investors will be able to assess the level of expertise and experience that exists within the team. 

For potential investors and lenders, the products and services component of your poultry farm's business plan is critical.

It should provide detailed information on what types of poultry (chicken, duck, turkey, etc.) your farm will be raising, how many birds it plans to produce, how much land and equipment is needed to run the operations and any other relevant details about production capacities.

This section should also include an analysis of the market for your products or services to demonstrate that there is enough demand for your business to be profitable. 

This includes researching competitors’ prices and marketing strategies, understanding customer needs, identifying areas where there may be untapped potential markets, and developing a strategy to differentiate yourself from the competition.

Additionally, this section should discuss any long-term goals or objectives related to product development or expansion into new markets that may help increase profitability over time.

When writing the market analysis section of your poultry business plan, it is vital to include information about demographics and segmentation, target markets, barriers to entry and competition. 

Demographics and segmentation should focus on the characteristics of the different customer segments in your target market. This information demonstrates to lenders and investors that there is demand for what you offer, that demand is sufficient, and that you have a reasonable grasp of the market.

Additionally, including information about your target market in your business plan ensures that the products and services your business offers are in line with market demands.

Finally, the competition analysis, when effectively presented, shows how viable your target market is and how well-positioned you are to compete.

When writing the strategy section of your poultry farm business plan, it is essential to include information on your competitive edge, pricing strategy, sales and marketing plan, milestones and risks and mitigants (how you will reduce risks). 

The competitive edge should explain why customers would choose your poultry farm over other businesses offering similar services, and discuss factors such as location, quality of product or customer service standards. 

Also, the pricing strategy should detail how you intend to price products for maximum profitability while remaining competitive within the market. 

It may also be useful to explain your sales and marketing strategy, which should describe how you intend to reach your potential customers and raise brand awareness through various channels, such as social media and print advertising. 

Furthermore, milestones that demonstrate to investors that you have defined growth and development objectives should also be mentioned. 

Lastly, describing potential risks with mitigations shows that you are aware of potential difficulties and have strategies in place to deal with them.

Presenting this information clearly in a business plan helps demonstrate that you have thoroughly considered all aspects of running your poultry farm successfully before launching operations.

The operations section of your poultry farm business plan should include detailed information about your staffing team, roles of staff members, and recruitment plan. It is also vital to list the specific positions that need to be filled, including those necessary for daily operations and those needed for administrative tasks. 

This section of the business plan should also include:

  • The operating hours and any shifts or required rotations.
  • The essential resources and intellectual property the company needs to run, such as permits and licenses.
  • Information about which suppliers you plan to partner with, what kind of services they will provide and their commercial terms. 

When you provide investors with a comprehensive overview of the operations of your poultry farm, they will be better informed about how the business is expected to run and can make an educated decision about whether or not to invest in it. 

The presentation of the financial plan

In the financial plan section, you should talk about the financial forecast that we talked about earlier in this guide. 

This section is crucial because it contains all the facts necessary to demonstrate how much cash you will require and the costs associated with operating a poultry farm.

Now that you know what to include in a poultry farm business plan, it's time to discuss the tools and resources that can be used to create one. 

What tool should I use to write my poultry farm's business plan?

The three main options for drafting a business plan for a poultry farm are: using Word and Excel, paying a consultant to write the plan, or using online business plan software.

Create your poultry farm's business plan using Word or Excel

Creating a poultry farm business plan using Word or Excel might look like a cheap solution, but these programs have their challenges. 

  • You start from a blank screen with no guided instructions
  • It can’t be used to construct a financial forecast
  • You have to be an expert in financial modelling to come up with an accurate forecast
  • It takes a long time to create a complete forecast with Excel

Even if you successfully employ Word and Excel to create your company strategy, the problem of trust still exists. Will investors trust the outcome of your forecasts? That brings us to the next point.

Hire a consultant to write your poultry farm's business plan

Outsourcing a poultry farm business plan to a consultant or accountant is a viable option that can provide you with useful assistance while developing your business plan. 

Consultants are often experienced in writing business plans and accountants can create accurate financial forecasts. 

The only drawbacks to this solution are:

  • Hiring a consultant or an accountant is expensive. The bare minimum for hiring a consultant is usually $2,000 (£1,500), excluding any additional changes required after the first version.
  • An accountant will only help with the financial forecast section of your plan (you’d have to hire a consultant separately).
  • There is the risk of them not understanding the poultry industry adequately to make recommendations or make a strong case to your financiers.

This leaves us with the third option.

Writing the business plan for a poultry farm yourself with an online business plan software

You might want to take matters into your own hands and write your poultry business plan using online business plan software. After all, nobody understands and is more passionate about your business than you do.

Some of the advantages of using an online business plan software are:

  • It makes creating a financial forecast that will wow investors a breeze
  • You don’t have to start from a blank screen (like in Word) and step-by-step instructions are provided for you for each section
  • Helps you to confidently create your plan without worrying that you left out a crucial part
  • Detail outline ensures that everything is covered
  • Ensures that your plan follows the structure that investors and lenders expect
  • You save time with the clear instructions provided
  • Relevant examples are provided
  • No knowledge of accounting required
  • You don’t have to be a financial modelling expert
  • No confusing Excel formulas
  • A professional business plan template is provided, in which you could replace the texts and numbers with your business details to make it your own.

The poultry farming business is a dynamic, expanding industry with huge financial possibilities. If properly managed, the poultry farming industry could be regarded as one of the most profitable businesses in the world. It has developed into the best potential to make a substantial sum of money quickly. It’s challenging to start a poultry farm business in the UK, but having a solid business plan will help you succeed. Before starting a poultry farm in the UK, spend time and effort outlining the concept in a poultry farm business plan. Making the business plan prior to project initiation is the best approach. Using a sample of a poultry farm business plan might seem useful, but a professional touch is better.

Have a smooth ride!

What Is the Poultry Farm Business?

The majority of profitable business prospects are typically ignored by popular culture. Everyone wants to choose the more enticing positions, companies, or projects that will instantly evoke feelings of prestige in the minds of individuals who hear them. It would be excellent to pretend you are into oil and gas, transportation, or even entertainment when they ask what kind of industry you are in.

But suppose you work as a farmer and people stare at you oddly. This is one of the world’s most covert industries. Consider this: We regularly consume food without considering its origin or route to our table. Our food intake is supported by a huge number of individuals, groups, and organisations.

To enhance the output of eggs and meat, domesticated birds are raised for commercial purposes in poultry farming. Farms typically raise chicken, turkey, ducks, and geese as food. Although broilers are there for meat and layers for eggs, chicken has a global market.

There are some steps you must take when you want to start a poultry farm business so you can have a successful result. Getting a sample of a poultry farm business plan will be a great benefit too. The following are the steps you need to take:

#1. Learn Poultry Farming

Getting some fundamental training is the first step in starting a poultry farm business. Do not start a chicken farm right away after receiving the necessary instruction from a reputable farming institution. Be aware that dealing with real birds makes it a delicate process. If you need to learn about raising chicks, you can enrol in a training course, even if it’s brief.

#2. Decide What Niche To Concentrate On

The main thing that springs to mind when you think of the poultry industry is raising birds for meat. But there is more to breeding birds for commercial purposes; to start, you can also raise other species besides chickens in the poultry industry. In addition to choosing the species of birds you want to breed commercially, there are other areas of the market you may specialise in to make a difference and stand out.

The sector includes:

  • Meat production (through broiler breeding)
  • Production of eggs (through layer breeding)
  • Production of poultry feed
  • Equipment manufacturing is required on the poultry farm.
  • Eggs and meat processing
  • Chicken hatching
  • Packaging and marketing of eggs and meat

An entrepreneur might choose more than one sector to launch their business, depending on their interests and viability.

#3. Choose a Suitable Location for Your Business

Choose a good location for your poultry farm business. Instead of creating a logistical nightmare and driving up transportation costs, it is best to position it close to where items are consumed. Also, due to regulations prohibiting this type of business from being established in a residence, your choice of location is very important.

However, a remote area of the city with few occupants would be the ideal location for you to establish such a business. The distance is specified because of the potential health effects such a place might have on individuals, as well as the noise, smell, and other factors. While it is great to locate a poultry farm business a little bit away from residential areas, it must not be so far away that clients cannot travel there to purchase the goods. Or so far away that vets find it challenging to travel to give the birds their vaccinations.

#4. Choose a Catchy Business Name

It’s also very crucial to give your poultry farm a name and register it in accordance with state regulations. Picking a name for your business requires creativity, so you might want to keep certain aspects in mind while you brainstorm ideas for a catchy name. Perhaps you want to emphasise how different you are from your rivals and use it to build your business name, or perhaps you want to pay close attention to the significant shift you want to bring about in your target audience. In any case, one of the important considerations is the name of your poultry farm business.

#5. Choose the Right Type of Bird

Poultry farm business owners rear different types of birds. It’s your choice to choose the breed of bird that you want to grow and breed on your farm. For the purpose of producing meat and eggs, it is first advised to choose from a small variety of broilers and layers. Depending on the demand and profitability, one can introduce new bird varieties as the business expands. There are some other types of birds that you can take into consideration. They are the duck, goose, turkey, etc.

#6. Have a Business Plan

To run your poultry farm business, make sure you have a poultry farm business plan in place in advance. The plan should depict the direction your poultry farm business will head in over the next four to ten years.

Write down your goals, target market, poultry products, and marketing techniques you want to use to make your business grow. Your poultry farm business plan comes with a lot of advantages. One of the advantages is that it attracts investors to your poultry business plan. Before investing in your poultry farm business, investors will like to carefully review your poultry farm business plan. Another advantage it has is that it helps you act in accordance with the poultry business plan, which aids in securely trending the path. You will be on track when executing your business. Getting a sample of a poultry farm business plan will help you carry out a proper business plan.

#7. Select the Cage Type of Your Poultry

Prior to creating your poultry farm’s ultimate plan, choosing the type and size of poultry cages is another crucial step. You may imagine that thinking about this before beginning a business is not all that necessary, but it really is. Your entire poultry business plan will be impacted by your estimation of the cost of the poultry cages, both favourably and unfavourably.

#8. Raise Startup Capital

You now know how much funding is needed to launch your poultry farming business plan after choosing your location. Document all of the funds you require along with their source and management. This type of business requires a large initial investment, and in the UK, the government does not provide any support at all. This implies that you would need to find alternative methods of raising capital to start this kind of business.

When looking for startup funding for your poultry farm business, some of the financing options you can consider are:

  • Obtain funds from stock sales and personal savings.
  • Personal property sales
  • Sell shares to potential buyers.
  • Obtain a soft loan from family and friends.
  • submit a bank loan application.
  • Obtaining the necessary funding from corporate partners and private investors
  • Promote your business ideas to attract angel investors, venture capital, and financing from charitable groups.

#9. Get a Professional Certification

 There aren’t any significant certifications needed to start a poultry farm in the UK. To be able to do particular tasks on a poultry farm, such as vaccination, one may need to undergo training; this training may include a certificate. Any educational facility that offers the Diploma in Poultry course is open to enrollment if one so chooses. Here, they might get the crucial skills they need to manage a poultry business successfully. 

#10. Write a Marketing Strategy

It’s important to market your goods to the intended market. Because marketing is challenging, different communication channels can be used to generate publicity about your product. Nobody would come to do business with you if they were unaware of your business. And every company is created with the intention of producing money; otherwise, it would be known as a charitable organization. How do you spread the word so that the market is aware that your business even exists?

Typically, people concentrate on creating the farm itself and pay less attention to how to sell their specialities to customers who are looking for these services. This is why you should employ marketing and sales professionals to create creative ways to publicize your poultry farm business.

You can also market your poultry farm business through the following means:

  • Utilise the internet to promote your business.
  • Advertise your business in relevant financial magazines, on the radio, and on TV stations.
  • Attend seminars and meetings in this industry and market your brand through networking.
  • Get to meetings with government officials and people in the food service industry to let them know what you do.
  • List your business in the local directories.

You can use a sample of a poultry farm business plan, but we advise you to go to a professional when starting your poultry farm business.

What Is a Poultry Farm Business Plan?

You will require a business plan for poultry farming that can explain how to start a poultry farm business in order to launch this business. The document serves as a comprehensive business plan that will guide you through all the steps involved in starting and running a profitable poultry farm. This business can pay you more money than a plan for a cattle feedlot or a dairy farm. For example, a business plan will help you in accomplishing this. Getting a sample of a poultry farm business plan will be an extra bonus when writing yours.

The following are steps you need to take when writing a poultry business plan;

An executive summary is a critical part of your business plan. It is where you briefly discuss your goals, your motivations, your core values, and even your intended means of achieving them. It might only ever be seen by you, but it’s a fantastic tool for reassurance as your company grows. Your executive summary should rapidly grab the reader’s attention. Tell them about the kind of poultry farm you run and its current state. For instance,

  •  Do you run poultry farm enterprises in many areas?
  • Are you a startup?
  •  Do you have one that you’d like to expand?

In your company analysis, you will describe the kind of poultry farm you are managing, if it is a breeder farm, a broiler farm, or a pellet farm. The company analysis section of your business plan has to give information on the company and describe the type of poultry farming enterprise you will run. 

You can also include these:

  • Explain your legal structure here.
  • When and why did you start the business?
  • What milestones have you achieved to date?

Those who are the final consumers of commercial poultry farm products and those who gain from the business value chain of the poultry farming and egg production industry are obviously a very large target market.

Whether it’s chicken or eggs, every household uses products from industrial poultry farms. Chicken and eggs are available in almost all lodgings and fast food outlets. A commercial chicken farmer should essentially be able to sell his or her chicken and eggs to as many consumers as feasible.

Regarding who your poultry farming business plans to serve, you must be quite clear. Your business plan needs to be clear about the clients you want to focus on, the population segment that will serve as your main market, and the population segment that your company will purposefully neglect.

To address the issue you want to solve, you need to determine how many people make up your target market and how much they typically spend annually. Conduct thorough market research and solely rely on reliable sources.

Your competitive analysis should list both your company’s direct and indirect rivals before concentrating on the latter. Other poultry farm companies are direct competitors .

Other retailers that clients can choose from but who are not direct competitors are known as indirect competitors. This includes those who manufacture alternatives to meat as well as producers of other meats like cattle, pork, or fish. Such competition must also be mentioned. You should outline the other poultry farms with which you compete in terms of direct competition. Most likely, poultry farms in the area around you will be your main competition. Give a brief description of each of these competitors’ firms and list their strengths and weaknesses.

You can also use the following questions in your competitive analysis:

  • What types of customers do they serve?
  • What kinds of poultry do they produce (breeders, broilers, pullets)?
  • What is their pricing (premium, low, etc.)?
  • What are they good at?
  • What are their weaknesses?
  • Will you use superior production methods?

This is the section of many business plans that are lacking and might result in slow or poor sales. Most people enter a certain line of work because they are talented or passionate about it. However, the majority of these individuals are not natural marketers. You describe your plan for grabbing attention, creating interest in your services, and turning prospects into consumers in this area. Here, you should explain how you plan to reach your target market with your goods and services. Describe here the methods you’ll use to promote your products and the financial resources you’ll need to put your plans into action. Tell everyone you know about your chicken farming endeavours, including your friends, family, neighbours, and coworkers. Find as many meetings, seminars, and social gatherings as you can that are aimed toward small enterprises, agricultural companies, or other food service suppliers.

The following questions would also help in carrying out your marketing plan:

  • What sort of online marketing do you do?
  •  Do you advertise online, in print, or elsewhere? 
  • Do you attend trade shows or sponsor events? 
  • If your direct marketing is largely done by retailers, what kind of marketing will you do to attract and keep those key partners?

Here, your marketing strategies could include Twitter promos, product fliers and banners, radio ads, and Facebook marketing campaigns. Use social media in all its forms.

Describe the essential team members of your small business and why their participation is crucial to the success of your poultry farming operation in this area of your business plan. Make sure to include management team members and business owners in your plan. Will you run your company as a partnership, a sole proprietorship, or under a different form of ownership?

Here, introduce your company’s managers and give a brief description of their qualifications and main duties. Making a chart that shows your line of command could be a useful strategy. Additionally, you could wish to include important workers with connections or abilities that are strategic assets, people to fill important positions down the road, trustworthy advisers, or other useful contributors.

Your business plan must include a part devoted to fundraising if your objective is to raise money for your small business. You describe your financial goals in this part, along with how you plan to use the funds for your poultry business. If you require funding, this part focuses on the amount of money you require to launch your firm and the purpose for which you want to use the funds you are raising. Your 5-year financial statement should be broken out both monthly or quarterly for the first year and then annually in your financial plan. Your income statement, balance sheet, and cash flow statements are all financial statements.

Include all of your financial estimates in the appendix of your poultry farm business plan, along with any additional materials that can strengthen your point.

Keep in mind that while market and problem analysis are important, implementation is ultimately what counts. That’s why we wrote a poultry business plan just for you to stay true to yourself. Using a sample of a poultry farm business plan to write yours is cool, but you’ll need a professional touch on your poultry farm business plan.

One of the industries with tremendous growth potential is poultry farming. The poultry farm business must be chosen if you want quick profits. Starting a small-scale poultry farm doesn’t require a significant financial outlay or a lot of space, but having a poultry business plan is a great advantage to your poultry farm business. Getting a sample of a poultry farm business plan might make it seem easy to write , but you definitely need professional help while writing your poultry farm business plan.

The poultry business owners are primarily focused on maximising the production from their farm by selling eggs as well as related products like feathers, gunny sacks, and poultry litter. If properly managed using accepted practices, the poultry farming industry can be quite profitable.

When a farmer earns a £20,000 profit, the first £9,440 is tax-free and the remaining £10,560 is subject to a 20% tax rate, which equals £2,112 in tax obligations. Similar procedures are applied to farmers in Ireland, although at different times and with different fees.

Even while an egg costs only 7.5 cents on average, the sector as a whole is worth roughly a billion pounds annually. An average hen will bring approximately £2.35 per year for a farmer (or as little as £1.80 for eggs produced intensively).

Broiler farms are designed to raise chickens for meat consumption. These farms focus on efficient growth, providing the right feed, and maintaining suitable living conditions for the birds.

Hatcheries are facilities where fertilized eggs are incubated to hatch chicks. These chicks are then either raised on the same farm or sold to other poultry farms.

⇒ Free-range and Organic Farming

Some poultry farms adopt free-range or organic farming practices, allowing birds to have access to outdoor areas, natural sunlight, and a diet that may include organic feed.

⇒ Disease Management

Poultry farms must implement strict biosecurity measures to prevent the spread of diseases. Regular vaccinations, quarantine procedures, and hygiene practices are essential for maintaining the health of the flock.

⇒ Integrated Farming

Some farms integrate poultry with other agricultural activities, such as crop cultivation or aquaculture, creating a diversified and sustainable farming system.

⇒ Waste Management

Poultry farms need efficient waste management systems to handle manure and other by-products. Proper disposal or recycling of waste contributes to environmental sustainability.

⇒ Regulatory Compliance

Poultry farming is subject to various regulations and standards related to animal welfare, food safety, and environmental impact. Farms must adhere to these regulations to ensure ethical and legal practices.

Marketing Analysis of Chicken Farming Business

Uk start-up visa business plan.

If you want to know how to write a business plan for a chicken farm, you need to run a thorough marketing analysis of the industry. If we look at the trends in the poultry industry, the consumption of meat in the US has been up by as much as 540% since 1940. This translates to a multibillion-dollar industry that has a scope for aggressive expansion just like a mushroom farming business plan .

However, this must also be noted that starting a chicken business is not an easy feat to undertake. This is mainly because the industry already has a lot of well-reputed and established brands that are providing the services.

Let’s explore more marketing factors related to this poultry farm business plan .

5.1 Market Trends

If you want to know how to open a chicken farm, you need to see the market trends. It can be seen that the chicken market has grown from $8.3 billion in 2008 to more than $40 billion in 2018. Experts are expecting another 300% growth in the sector by 2030. This means one thing; the business is a good one to enter.

5.2.1 Restaurants and Hotels

Our largest customers will be these. We will make agreements with them to be the sole suppliers of all their meat and eggs. This will make us a bunch of money and that too for a long period of time.

5.2.2 Grocery Stores

We’ll offer frozen meat products and eggs at the popular grocery store in the area. Once the brand makes a name for itself, this will become one of the most profitable segments of our market.

5.2.3 End Consumer

We will be opening two outlets to sell the product directly to the end consumer. This will not be a very profitable thing at the start but once we penetrate this segment of the market, we can make top dollar.

5.2.4 Chicken and Egg Retailers

We will provide our product to the retailers who have established sales and are selling product from other producers. We will offer it at a lower price to shift them to us.

5.3 Business Target

  • To be a leading provider of meat and eggs in the US.
  • To expand the business worldwide in 10 years.
  • To establish a reputable brand of organic meat and eggs.
  • To be the best meat and eggs provider in the state of Missouri.

5.4 Product Pricing

We will keep the prices low at the start to attract customers. This will be done for the first six months. Once we get customers and make a name of the brand then we can increase the prices gradually and adjust them where there is the perfect balance of sales volume and profit margin.

Marketing Strategy

It is of cardinal importance to make a strong marketing strategy if you have to establish a profitable chicken farming business. Your poultry marketing plan needs to focus on the strengths you have over the competition. The main advantage Kiley Protein has is that they are providing organic meat and eggs, something not many of the others are providing.

Let’s see how this sample business proposal for poultry farming covers the marketing part.

6.1 Competitive Analysis

  • We are one of the very few businesses in the area providing organic meat and eggs. This is the biggest competitive advantage that we have.
  • We will provide meat in varieties. Boneless, leg pieces, minced meat, will all be offered as different products.
  • We will make deals with bulk customers and make long term agreements with them to be their sole suppliers.

6.2 Sales Strategy

  • We will use YouTube and Facebook ads to advertise out product and highlight how are we better.
  • We will send salespersons to large customers (hotels and fast-food chains) to sign long term agreements.
  • For the average customer, we will offer discounted rates and lucky draws on every purchase to attract sales.

Personnel plan

This business plan for poultry farm pdf also covers the staff that will be needed to run the farm and all of its operations. Just like a pig farming business plan , this business also needs quite a bit of staff to keep the farm running.

7.1 Company Staff

  • Kiley Lawson will be the owner and the CEO of the chicken farming business.
  • 2 Managers for procurement and sales.
  • 1 Doctor to run the farm.
  • 8 Handlers to feed and look after the chicken.
  • 3 Drivers for the delivery trucks.
  • 4 Salesmen to tun the outlets.
  • 4 Delivery boys to deliver the online orders.

7.2 Average Salary of Employees

Financial plan.

The next thing this start chicken farming business plan needs to cover is the financial plan, an estimate of all the costs involved in setting up this business. Just like a goat farming business plan , we need to have an estimate before we start it.

Here are the costs that the owner will have to arrange:

  • The cost of setting up the farm and procuring the machinery.
  • The salaries of the staff of the farm for the first 6 months.
  • The cost of food for the chicken for the first lot (40 days).
  • The cost of setting up outlets to sell the product.

Poultry Farm Business Plan Sample (With Financial Template)

Share this Post:

  • Share on WhatsApp

This is a sample business plan for a poultry farm based in Nigeria. The sample business name used is Nutrichic Farms. 

The business operates a poultry farm that breeds broiler and layer chickens, and is located in Nasarawa state.

The business plan outline used is a simple business plan that follows a standard business summary template used by most business schools and is usable for applying for loans, grants, and equity funding.

You can use this business plan as a guide to develop a business plan for your poultry business.

Introduction

Nutrichic Farms is a poultry farm located in Nasarawa state, Nigeria. We rear broiler and layer chickens for eggs and meat production and sales.

Through our farm, we produce healthy chickens and eggs, which are distributed at local markets in Nasarawa and other neighboring states.

Business Analysis

Nutrichic Farms operates a lean model poultry farm that houses a chicken shelter and a feed production chamber.

We produce our chicken feeds in-house to reduce cost of breeding and to ensure healthy nutrition for our chickens.

This ensures that our layer chickens lay more eggs, and our broilers are ready for sale as quickly as possible.

To ensure a fast and efficient sales process for our eggs and chickens, we have a distributor network that consists of 20 egg distributors and 15 chicken distributors within Nasarawa.

This makes our sales process faster and remittance of payments more accountable.

We are looking to make our production and distribution even more efficient by procuring more feed production machines and distribution vans for transporting our products to the market.

Product Pricing

Our fresh eggs are sold at a wholesale price of 720 Naira per crate. Our mature broilers are sold at a wholesale price of 1,500 Naira, while our old layers are sold at a wholesale price of 1,300 Naira.

On the average, we sell 65 crates of eggs, and 80 chickens per week.

Business Model & Profitability

Business model.

Our business model focuses on producing healthy chickens and eggs, reducing production costs, utilizing competitive price points, and being fast to market by leveraging our distributor network.

Expected annual customers

Since we already operate a direct B2B sales model using our distributor network, our customer base is already set. 

We have 20 egg distributors and 15 chicken distributors already. Once we increase our production capacity, we’ll be able to triple this number and grow our sales.

Estimated Annual Revenue

Currently, we are able to distribute 65 crates of eggs and 80 chickens per week, which brings us an annual revenue of 2.4 million Naira and 5.8 million Naira.

We estimate that our total annual revenue of 8.2 million can be tripled once we scale our production and make our distribution more efficient.

Production & Distribution Cost

Our production costs include procuring day-old chickens for 100 Naira each, raw materials for feed production, vaccination, and fuel to power the production plant, pump water, and power the chicken shelter.

Our distribution costs include weekly transportation, logistics and other miscellaneous expenses.

Profit Margin

Currently, our profit margin stands at 65% but we are looking to scale that up to 80% once we begin the next phase of our expansion plans.

Nutrichic Farms was launched by Solomon, who is currently the CEO of the business.

Solomon has a background in agric economics and farming, and has been managing his family farm since the past 20 years.

The current business has remained a family holding, with staff consisting mainly of family members.

Other team members include Mr. Hassan, the feed plant technician; Mr. Kehinde, the truck driver and distribution head, and Ms. Victoria, our quality control and business development manager.

Each person on this team brings a unique skill set that is required to drive the business forward and fulfill the needs of our customers.

Business Journey

Nutrichic Farms was launched in 2015 by Solomon due to his passion for poultry and farming.

The business was launched with a capital of 300,000 Naira, which purchased 50 birds, built a makeshift chicken shelter, and purchased some chicken feeds.

Over the past 5 years, Nutrichic Farms has grown so much that we have been able to build a larger and more standard chicken shelter, drilled a borehole, and started our own feed production.

Since then, we have sold over 30,000 chickens and 10,000 crates of eggs, making sales of over 10 million Naira.

In that time, we have also implemented our strategy for business development and grown our distributor network. We are hoping to grow this network further in the next phase of our business.

Market Analysis

Market size/target audience.

According to Sahelcp, the poultry market in Nigeria is worth 80 billion Naira.

We estimate that the poultry market in Nasarawa and its environs is worth 0.5% of the total poultry market in Nigeria.

Hence, our market size is estimated to be worth 400 million Naira. 

With the population in Nasarawa growing impressively year-on-year, we estimate that our target customers comprise over 4,000 retailers of chickens and eggs, and over 1.5 million consumers of chicken and egg.

Marketing Plan

Our marketing plan involves incentivizing and leveraging our distributor network.

We want to help these distributors of chicken and egg get the right products promptly at the right prices and to make more profit.

We plan to grow our distributor network to at least 2,000 distributors in the next 2 years.

This would help us boost sales and collect better feedback on the needs of retailers and final consumers.

SWOT Analysis

Strengths: Our Strengths lie in our strategic distributor network, strong business efficiency, and growing brand.

Weaknesses: Our identified weak areas are limited markets due to physical nature of business, and Poor transport infrastructure which relies too much on external logistics partners.

Opportunity: Our identified opportunities include the growing population and demand for chicken and eggs, strong local brand identity, and the room for growth in our production and distribution.

Threats: We see threats to our business in different areas such as individual sellers in the market competing on price, logistics partners failing on deliveries, and wholesalers buying from outside the state.

Business Needs

Nutrichic Farms is in need of funds to purchase more machinery for our feed plant, purchase trucks for our distribution, and marketing to grow our distributor network.

We plan to grow our distributor network to at least 2,000 distributors in order to capture more market share and consolidate our brand positioning.

If these requirements are met, it would help us meet our business & financial goals.

Future Plans 

Over the next two years, we plan to grow our distributor network from less than 50 to 2,000.

This would help us capture a wider segment of the market, triple our sales, and enjoy a strong market advantage.

  • Management team and experience

  • Business structure (LLC, sole proprietorship, corporation, etc.)
  • Proposed company name and location
  • A brief history of the business if expanding an existing operation

Estimated size of your target market locally

  • Our county has a population of 250,000 residents, with census data showing 15% or 37,500 households fall into our target millennial parent demographic. If even 10% of those households purchase pasture-raised chickens, that represents a target market of 3,750 local customers.

Customer needs/challenges to be addressed

Benefits and features that appeal to your market

  • We will emphasize the organic, free-range methods used on our small-scale farm, as well as our focus on heritage breeds raised humanely in a natural environment. The nutritional superiority of our eggs and organic chicken meat will be a central part of our messaging to customers.
