PLANS are afoot to install a feed mill in Labasa to help poultry farmers on Vanua Levu.

The proposed project was revealed to farmers at the Fiji Crop and Livestock Council-organised forum at the Civic Centre building yesterday.

Department of Animal Health and Production's senior agriculture officer Northern Naini Matakaiwai said they were liaising with the Commissioner Northern's office on the project.

"We are liaising with the Commissioner Northern's office to have a feed mill here in Labasa," she said.

"This is all part of our efforts to help farmers. We are also talking to investors to help us with poultry farming.

"We are also putting a lot of emphasis on sheep and goat farming.

"Right now, Macuata has been identified to be the highest sheep producers on Vanua Levu."

Acting commissioner Northern Alipate Bolalevu said they were aware of the proposed project.
