ASA/WISHH sent two poultry producers from Ghana to Kansas State University to participate in the International Grains Program Institute Feed Manufacturing Short Course on June 11-14, 2018. Through the USDA-funded AMPLIFIES Ghana project, ASA/WISHH is improving Ghana’s poultry feed production capacity and increasing efficiency in poultry value chains. KSU has a contract with ASA/WISHH to provide feed milling and grain handling consultations to the Ghanaian feed and poultry industry. Therefore, ASA/WISHH selected the top representatives of two Ghanaian poultry operations that have their own feed mills and are currently growing a combined total of nearly 15,000 layers and broilers. Together, they have the capacity to raise 22,000 birds a year. AMPLIFIES connects trade and development programs, revitalizing Ghana’s poultry industry while supporting ongoing chicken and feed ingredient free trade with Ghana. This enables competition and increased export opportunity for U.S. products.
