Contract and non-contract broiler farming survey

The recently signed poultry masterplan considers the contract farming as one of the fundamental tools to expand broiler industry, promote inclusive growth and job creation in South African economy. However, there are still mixed findings from the existing empirical evidence on satisfaction of farmers concerning contract farming and its contribution to their welfare. This is an independent survey undertaken by the National Agricultural Marketing Council (NAMC) to establish the status qou of broiler production under contract and non-contract farming.


The overall purpose is to assert whether contract farming in broiler production will ensure that farmers deliver on the notable aspirations of the poultry masterplan in South Africa or not. Specific objectives include to examine the experiences of the current contract broiler producers, their readiness or potential to expand and explore the potential for non-contract producers to join in broiler contract farming.


This survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.


This information will be analyzed unanimously and will not be use for taxation or criminal prosecution.
