Poultry Feed Plant
With the development Dairy in India, there is a very good demand for cattle/Poultry feed, nutrients for inhabitants. Health is very good demands cattel, Birds, inhabitants depend upon its feed. So Health of the contains good amounts of food nutrients such as protein, carbohydrates, fates, vitamins minerals, etc. therefore each feed should have of right proportions of these ingredients (if reqd.), mixing and packing in HDPE/gunny bags.
In the modern nomenclature of poultry industry, the term hatchery covers the sector which is engaged in production and supply of one-day old chicks by artificial incubation. A hatchery can be part of breeding farm or it can be a franchiser or sub-franchiser for producing parent and day-old chicks of broilers or layers.
India is a densely populated country having predominantly agricultural economy. Almost every part of our country is suitable for poultry farming. During the past few years poultry industry have gained enormous potential particularly in and among major cities and towns.
The Government of India through State Directorates of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Services have been giving thrust on an incentives for the development of poultry industries may further be accelerated, if improved varieties of layers/broilers are made available to the poultry farmers which could ensure fast growth, maximum feed to meat/egg conversion and low mortality among the poultry birds. Therefore, it is essential that hatcheries are set up in different areas having potential on decentralized basis, so that poultry farmers may get high yielding varieties of chick which in turn may give good returns to the farmers. This will not only reduce the pressure of areas but also help in increasing per capita consumption of poultry meat and eggs and thus strengthen the economy of our country.

A hatchery can be part of breeding farm or it can be a franchiser or sub-franchiser for producing parent and day-old chicks of broilers or layers. The term hatchery can be extended to an organization which does not maintain any read stock (mating stocks) but only producers hatching eggs for producing (supplying) day old chicks. The organizations producing day old chicks only for replenishing their own requirements of birds are not covered under the term batchers.
Fast urbanization, changes in life style and food habits of consumers, improvement of standards of living etc. have resulted into increase in per capital consumption of egg and poultry meats but per capital consumption of these commodities in our country is till far below that of developed countries showing enormous potential/scope for poultry development. Increasing number of poultry farms in different areas has emphasized that hatcheries should be set up in potential areas. Exorbitantly increasing transportation of day old chicks have also emphasized that hatcheries should be set up on decentralized basis hereby.
In India, the hatcheries in private sector had their emergence in early sixties in collaboration with some famous main hatcheries based in Canada and America. Such collaboration are still continuing involving many more foreign based hatcheries. However some old batcheries have taken up their own poultry Breeding Programmes. In public sector too, significant contribution has been made by the Central Poultry Breeding Farms. Ministry of Agriculture and the ICAR in developing high yielding commercial checks. But due to tremendous increase in poultry farms in different areas, it could be said that these hatcheries set up so far are not adequate to meet the increased demand of one day old chicks of broilers or layer poultry birds which shows good scope for hatcheries.
