Hundreds of small-scale broiler and layer hen farmers across South Africa are benefitting from training provided through collaboration between international and national organisations and experts.

The training, which forms part of a World Poultry Foundation (WPF) programme supported by grants from the US government, has been upskilling the farmers in the critical aspects of new business, farm and financial management.

Award-winning South African poultry mentor, Mzwandile Duma, has been tasked by local training programme facilitator, Franchising Plus, to share his knowledge with close to 100 small-scale poultry farmers in KwaZulu-Natal and the Free State as part of the WPF’s nationwide initiative.
