Who we are
Who we are
Selema Farms is one of Nigeria’s leading livestock Farmhouse. We began livestock farming in 2016 and we’ve grown to be one of Nigeria’s fastest-growing Livestock Farms.
Since launching in 2016, we have partnered with the Osun State Government, and selected wholesale outlets nationwide such as; Prince Ebeano supermarkets, Red and Green Butchery, Lekki Farm and are in partnership with the following abattoirs Agege, Mile12 and Kara.
An Initiative of Selema farms, Cowfunding is a digital livestock investment platform. According to statistics, Nigeria alone consumes over 360,000 tonnes of beef every year, accounting for half of all West Africa, beef consumption.
Although cattle are raised primarily for beef or milk production, other ‘by-products’ such as dairy products, cowhide, cow horns, bones, hooves, stearic acid etc makes livestock great for investment as it is constantly in high demand.
With our practised experience in agriculture and livestock farming, our strategies are focused on optimizing the financial opportunities of Livestock Farming in Nigeria. Our mission is to give our partners this opportunity to invest and Earn Big.
