Hatchery at Lohardaga and Peterwar: 

Since we have one of the biggest broiler producing unit of Eastern India, for supply of input, it has to depend on the suppliers with the lesser turnover. It has been found that the members of the co-operative societies have to compramise with quality and quantity many a times. After feed, chick is the most important factor. Seeing this, the co-operative society of Lohardaga District has established the state biggest hatchery which has the capacity to produce 3 lakh chicks per month. Each member saves at least Rs 2 per chick.The eggs are being purchased from Jabalpur, Hyderabad, Jalandhar and Banglore.

One more hatchery of this capacity has been completed and is operational since May 2011 at Petarbar in Bokaro district funded by NCDC. The total monthly production of the chicks is 6 lakh per month. The hatching eggs are not available in the eastern region and we have to purchase it from Southern or Northern states of the country. A parent unit for the production of hatching eggs will be a boon for the enterprise on which the livelihood of 5000 women are involved. It is required that the hatchery to be backed by parent farm.  Therefore a plan to establish a parent unit is in the pipe line. Feed Mill The co-operatives at Gumla, Dumka and Potka have their own feed mixing plant. They procure maize and soyabean De-oilled cake from market and 15% concentrate from Federation and prepare the complete feed. Federation is managing a feed mill at Peterwar in Bokaro district where 15% concentrate (mineral mixure) is prepared and supplied to the co-operative societies. The average daily requirement of the feed to all the co-operative is more than 50 MT.
