We embarked on snail farming to meet the rising demand for snails in Nigeria. We all know that snails have a huge demand for its unique taste and nutrition value. Snail meat is rich in protein, iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamin A and very low in fat.
We at Bobteg have selected rich and adequate soil for our snail farming, Bearing in mind that soil is the main habitat of snail. For successful snail farming in Nigeria, the selected land for this business must have to contain some of the components and chemical substances which are necessary for surviving the snails.
The shell of the snail is mainly calcium and they derive most of the calcium from the soil. They drink water from the soil and also lay eggs on the soil. For successful farming you must have to select such a suitable place with the availability of all types of necessary facilities for the snails.
