CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 Background to the Study

The agricultural sector in Nigeria is the most important non-oil sector of the economy,it is one of the largest employer of labour forces (National Bureau of Statistics, 2010). It plays a significant role in the Nigerian economy with 4.14 percent contribution to the GDP. The benefit it offers to the economy include production of food for consumption, raw material for the industries, foreign exchange earnings and also serves as the major revenue generation for the country before the oil boom (Olajideet al., 2017). After the oil boom the sector has suffered neglect due to government inconsistent policies over the years (Akinlabiet al, 2014). This led to change in emphasis from agriculture and low return in terms of efficiency and performance. According to Food and Agriculture Organization (2012) dichotomy has emanated in the agricultural production sector in the sense that while crop production is characterized by falling prices due to large supplies and stock replenishment in the recent years, cost of livestock production is increasing over the time due to high feed costs and reduced global livestock inventories and production (Food and Agricultural Organization, 2012). Also there seems to be more focus on livestock production due to increase in market demand driven by population growth in developing countries. Research findings on processing and marketing of dairy product has shown that economic efficiency and success of a dairy product largely depend on effective management of operations like milk procurement, processing and marketing of dairy products as well as efficient marketing system (Dhaka et al. ,2017).
