CHAPTER ONE

1.0 INTRODUCTION

The huge shape as seen by astrologers from the moon, and discovered and called the earth an enormous planet, has been transformed to small place where activities can easily be carried out with less intervention, thanks to the pallor behind the magical influence of computers. Computers have been employed in nearly all the human fields, from Business and Banking, Insurance, Agriculture and Technology. Difficult and strenuous jobs that were carried out by humans in the past have today been easily and effectively carried out by computers. In the development and maintenance of life, Agriculture plays an enormous role.

As the population of human increase so also the requirement of food and their need for either Agricultural products will be high in order to satisfy the huge population with food, shelter and raw materials for their industries. Since human being have limit in all they do, it deems imperative therefore that services of this great and tireless machine be put into all of man’s activities including the Agricultural sector for mass production and provision of food and other Agricultural benefits to man. In the field of animal husbandry, where services are also needed for further (addition) production to satisfy every aspect of man’s wants, because of the usefulness of this sector of Agriculture it is necessary that computer are introduced, in order that its activities be easily carried out for better results.

This project is concerned with computerizing a poultry farm but our centre of attraction is in general stock keeping and other activities that will be done easily and effectively by computers. It is worthy to note that a poultry farmer who engages a large scale production encounters a lot of problems, these problems may include stock keeping proper account of their daily activities and also keeping tracks on feeding the birds. This project will see the design of a system that will take care of the above mentioned problems. Above all, it will serve as a guide to poultry farmers on how to keep proper stocks and the system of feeding their birds to avoid stunted growth.
