Simple Analysis for Snail Farming using Nigeria as a Case Study

Suitable Tropical Snail Species for Farming

If you start a snail farm with 1,000 matured snails and they lay say 100 eggs each in a year. Remember that snails can go 3 clusters in a year.

Equals to 100 x 3 = 300 each (that is 300 snails each in a year) but for the purpose of this let’s put it at 150 snails per year.

Cost of 1,000 snails for breeding = 1,000 x 350 = 350,000 (Three Hundred and Fifty Thousand Naira)

For 150 snails for 1,000 foundation stock = 150,000 snails in a year.

If after 1 year you decide to sell 100,000 snails out of the 150,000 snails, you have a total of 100,000 x 100 Naira per snail (Highly reduced price) N10,000,000 (that is ten million Naira) Is that amazing?

This is a rough projection which is obtainable in a good management practices I think with this little summary snail breeding is profitable.
