Also provided were 12.5kg of Amo Byng Grower Pellet, as start-up packs for small poultry farming, and a pack of Divertamin, a combination of essential nutrients for the Noiler Birds to attain optimum growth and production, for each of the beneficiaries.

The Noiler Birds were presented to the Ogun State Government at the unveiling of the RHI South-west scheme in Abeokuta, Ogun State, on Tuesday, 17th April 2024, by Her Excellency, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, where Governor Dapo Biodun of Ogun State asserted that Amo Farm’s partnership with the state in promoting agriculture through empowerment initiative is very much commendable.

On his part, Amo Farm’s Group Managing Director, Dr. Ayoola Oduntan, who was present at the event, affirmed that the support for the RHI in the South-west was part of the company’s commitment to ensuring women’s involvement in agribusiness through Noiler farming, for food security, poverty eradication and provision of animal protein to curb malnutrition.

According to Amo Farm’s Group Managing Director, Dr. Ayoola Oduntan, who was present at the event, the support for the RHI in the South-west was part of the company’s commitment to ensuring women’s involvement in agribusiness for food sustainability, wealth creation, and animal protein for improved well-being.

Impressively, the Noiler Bird innovation and Amo Farm’s poverty reduction scheme have been extensively documented and reviewed in the prestigious Harvard Business Review publication.

Launched in 2014 after several years of research and development through a selective breeding process, Noiler is a source of protein and a dual-purpose chicken breed that is similar in looks and taste to the native chicken, but is resistant to diseases, and produces four times more eggs and three times more meat.

It was developed to create a revolution in rural poultry (production) that will increase productivity and income for rural women and empower them through job creation, to transform access of poor households to source animal protein in Africa, while boosting the availability of food in the country and on the African continent, thereby solving the problem of malnutrition.

Like its eggs which are very nutritious for all age demographics, the Noiler’s meat contains all essential amino acids and is low in saturated fats and cholesterol.

Present at the event were First Ladies of the Southwest States, among others from across the country, as well as royal fathers and other important dignitaries.

In her remark, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, who is the National Chairperson of the RHI, said the scheme with the theme “Making Life Better for Families,” launched in February 2024, is aimed at motivating women in all spheres of endeavors, and in agriculture for productive impact, in line with the Federal Government’s food security programme.

She affirmed that grants of N500,000 (Five Hundred Thousand Naira) would be given to 20 women each in the agrarian sector, fishing, and animal husbandry from each state of the Southwest, as 100 persons with disabilities smiled home with N100,000 each from the event.
