DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A COMPUTERIZED MODERN POULTRY FARM A CASE STUDY IMO POULTRY FARM LTD
The magical impact of computer has made enormous contribution to all aspect of the society people can now do things easily unlike in the past. Computers have lesson human activities (effort) in their day to day life, by reducing both human labour and time in solving their problem which are both numerous / unlimited.
The introduction of the magical machine has led to the further growth of Agricultural products. The technological know how and scientific research reveals that a lot of work can be carried out by the computer in agriculture and help in the growth.
It therefore deems imperative that computers should also be employed and utilized in forms. This thesis centers how computer systems can be useful in a large scale poultry farm, keeping of general stock of the birds, weight of individual birds and finally the accountability of the farm.
Computerized system has been design to take care of all the mentioned activities in a modern poultry farm. The activities will be carried out solely by the computer and any odd actions taken should be notified by the computer.
The work is implemented with the DBASE programming language to control the activities of the computer.

SYSTEM DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION
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 Polar behind the magical influence of computers.
Computers have been employed in nearly all of the human field, 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 increases so also the requirement of food and their need for other 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 animals husbandry, whose 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 projects is concerned with computerizing a poultry farm but our center 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 problem 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.
STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM.
The purpose of this study is find out the affect in implementing a computerized in a poultry farm. The introduction of computer in a poultry can have a positive or negative response to the society.
However precaution, principles and strategies should be undergone before innovating a computer system in the farm or organization, so that the effect can be treated. Certain factors should be considered before innovation of the computerized system will take shape such factors include
