Snail Breeding

 Nigeria's economic policies and programmes have necessitated a radical shift from a high dependence on the government for jobs to self-employment. One of such attractive areas for self-employment is snail rearing. It is a business that can provide a substantial source of protein to complement Nigerian carbohydrate dominant meals. The neglect of lucrative fields like snail bearing is as a result of Nigerians inclination to go into well-established industries. Snail farming is a practicable and viable venture yet unexplored in Nigeria. It has also been researched to be the most lucrative farming venture presently, as it requires far less capital investment with low running cost. The capital, technical, labour and financial inputs in snail farming are relatively low compared to those in other types of livestock farming (poultry, pig, goats, sheep, and cattle).
