How Profitable is Grasscutter Farming?

Let me show you little out of the profitability of grasscutter farming business in Nigeria;

Grasscutters have been found to live in colonies of 1 male : 4 or 5 females.

One colony sells for N45,000 to N50,000 depending on the farmer.

I started with 8 females and 2 males, That is two colony.

A female can give birth to over 5 Grasscutlings or even more as the case maybe.

The 8 females littered only once in the first year=

8×5 = 40 Grasscutlings.

In the first year, the 8 female Grasscutters reproduced 40 Grasscutters.

That means i got 8 families from my original 2 family investment and the 8 families is valued at over N400,000.

Now in the second year, they littered twice again, which is their normal littering number per year.

That gave me 80 Grasscutlings in the second year which is 16 families.

The investment is now valued at over N800,000.

Can you see an increase?

That is how grasscutter farming can be so profitable for those that are ready to stop complaining about the job status in Nigeria and start something for themselves, now as I was saying, Grasscutter does not require a much space even 20 of them can still live in a simple iron cage under your staircase or at your backyard.

If you are a worker, grasscutter farming can actually be an additional source of income for you and if you invest well, you can quit your job to face your grasscutter business.

Grasscutter as the name is called feed on grasses and some other edible feeds, they have a strong teeth system so you are not to keep them in a wooden cage system but an iron cage, the reason is; they will get up the entire wood of the cage, so you are expected to use an iron cage system.
