INMED Adaptive Agriculture: Chickens save the day!

INMED South Africa, with the support of the Eskom Foundation, helped the Thusa Bagale Farming Cooperative expand its output by adding chicken farming to its enterprise. INMED recently completed a large chicken hut for the co-op in Tarlton, Gauteng in South Africa to house indoor free-range layer hens. The project is part of INMED’s Adaptive Agriculture program to help small-scale producers adapt to global climate change. The 130 hens currently housed in the building are laying an average of 120 eggs a day, enough to feed their families with abundant surplus to sell to the local community for sustainable income. Eventually, the house will be stocked with 600 hens. Follow this project at @INMEDSA on Facebook and @INMEDSouthAfrica on Twitter.
