Grasscutter

OUR BREEDS: HARDINESS– FERTILITY – MOTHERING ABILITY – ADAPTABILITY

Jovana Integrated Farms has been breeding functionally efficient grasscutters that increase the profitability of commercial flocks. Fertility, outstanding mothering abilities and hardiness are very important in our multiplication objectives. As a breeder, you need to wean healthy, heavy kids rapidly and at a low cost to generate income.  Jovana Integrated Farms deliver this requirement; consistently and profitably for your commercial operation.

       Our grasscutters are tamed, gentler animals and the more you handle them, the gentler they become

Our grasscutters are raised on natural grass with sea salt lick supplements. We have an ideal facility that develops hardy and fertile grass-adapted grasscutters that perform consistently in your flock.
We do not subscribe to the practice of constant feeding with growth hormones to produce animals that may superficially appear to be well-grown and rounded. Holistic and sustainable farming practices form the foundation of all Jovana Integrated Farm’s farming activities and feeding management is key in this approach.

Jovana Integrated Farms involvement in the industry is significant. The company is a grasscutter company of choice in Nigeria. Besides breeding excellent grasscutter for local and international markets, we also provide slaughter animals for the local market.

We only specialize in captive bred grasscutters; so our knowledge on grasscutters is second to none. For anyone thinking of purchasing good breed and wants the best grasscutter hand in hand with the best service and knowledge then you have come to the right place.
If you are interested in starting a grasscutter breeding operation in your locality or looking at significantly upgrading the quality of your flocks in terms of fertility, hardiness, adaptability and meat carrying capacity, we can help you get the right animals on your farm.

In addition, we also offer various training courses - both on our farm and at other locations where demand justifies it, has a range of knowledge resource products and services available for grasscutter farmers.

Prince Arinze Onebunne - MD/CEO Jovana Integrated Farms is the author of a book on Commercial Grasscutter Production and Export.

Prince Arinze is regularly consulted on grasscutter matters relating to the management of grasscutters, animal health, grass management, breeding and kidding practices and other related aspects.

Our breeding objectives here at Jovana Integrated Farms are:

  • To breed grasscutter females with high fertility and good mothering abilities that, when combined with good management inputs, easily deliver wonderful kidding percentages.
  • To breed grasscutters that are hardy and display above average disease resistance with minimal animal health inputs.
  • To breed grasscutters that does not need ongoing supplementary feeding (as opposed to strategically supplied mineral supplements).
  • To use natural grass and other cheap agro-products to raise our grasscutters, thereby making our farming enterprise profitable, affordable and sustainable.
  • To supply grasscutter breeding families that are functional, adaptable and that are an economic asset for the flocks of our buyers.

Facts

  • Fertility is the most important element of livestock farming.
  • Good mothering abilities significantly contribute to profitability.
  • Hardiness and disease resistance reduce your input costs and contribute to profitability.
  • Jovana Farms easily deliver high weaning percentages of 170% and better.
  • Our grasscutters are highly adaptable, which means they produce in a wide range of environments and farming systems.
  • Our grasscutters receive supplements periodically in our production cycle. However, we do not artificially boost weight and growth through continuous and unsustainable growth hormones-feeding practices.

Are you weary of investing a large amount of capital on cheap and poor quality grasscutter breeding families, only to be disappointed when the animals rapidly loose condition and lack libido when you get them to your farm? Our grasscutter breeding families will change your attitude.

We believe we breed quality animals that are high yielding. One of our main objectives is to breed functionally efficient animals that can perform in the cage with the minimum of inputs. Absolute size and overweight is not the solution for us, productivity under low-cost conditions is. Fertility, hardiness and mothering abilities are key factors in the success of our grasscutter breeders and we aim to deliver these traits to our clients.
