This was revealed during a tour of Oloba Farm Settlement, Iwo where 1,500 hectares of land have been acquired, and a 78-hectare cattle ranch established for the fattening of Cattle and Goats.

The ranch has the capacity to produce 10,000 Cattle amongst other animals being raised for meat production, State government officials told Pulse.

Recall that the government of Osun sent 40 youth to Germany to acquire modern agricultural techniques in 2015.

Olumide Ojo, one of the German trainees who resides at the Oloba Cattle Ranch, said he and other trainees are in high spirits as they've begun the first batch of 45-day goat-fattening beef production.

Thousands of Cattle are also being raised in the ranch.

Other trainees who arrived from Germany in 2016 are also breeding Pigs using modern techniques at Leventis foundation fattening centre, Ilesa.

In addition to the above, the Osun government has secured 2,000 hectares of land for another Cattle ranch in Ede and Ejigbo local government areas.

A N40M loan support was also granted to registered Pig farmers’ cooperative society in the State to boost meat production.

The German trained farmers stated that in a week or two, the first batch of fattened Goats will be ready for sale in various markets across the South West.
