Chickens: Imported battery cage is better than the local version
#1
Considering the use of any asset on the farm, some factors come into mind.

First of course is the cost- how much resources is available to the farmer to acquire the asset. This goes a long way to determine the asset that the farmer acquires (affordability).

Also of importance is the durability of the asset, how long can this asset be put to a profitable use on the farm. An accounting measure of this is useful lifespan of the asset which ultimately determines the depreciation charged to the farm operations.

Of course the above discussion does not exclude consideration of the pupose of the asst, enviromental factors, etc.

So how does the decision to buy and operation of imported battery cages brings more benefit relative to the locally fabricated cages?

Let us reason together.

I don't know much about battery cages, but now that naira have been depreciated, importing will be very very costly.

If constructed with good quality steel, locally fabricated cages can last long and compete with the imported ones.
