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.
