  This research is an attempt to determine the magnitude and the direction to which the level of transactions costs influence changes in maize supply in Iwo agricultural zone of Osun state. Multistage random sampling technique was employed in selecting 95 respondents for the study. A structured interview schedule was used to collect data from the respondents. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and an estimation of Cobb-Douglas regression model. The descriptive analysis revealed mean age of respondents as 42.7 years while 93% were married. It further showed that 52.2% of the farmers depended on personal savings in financing their maize production activities while14.4% of them received no formal education. Adjusted R2 for the regression analysis was 0.748 showing that 74.8% of the variation in quantity of maize supplied by respondents was explained by the estimated variables. Data analysis showed that significant relationships exist between transactions costs and agricultural household supply response in the study area.

  The study analyzed the Technical Efficiency (TE) of poultry egg producers in Oyo state of Nigeria using a Cobb-Douglas stochastic production frontier function. The data for the study were collected using structured questionnaire administered on random samples of 51 poultry egg producers. The results showed that, the TE of farmers varied between 0.10 and 0.99 with a mean of 0.823. About 90% of the farmers surveyed had technical efficiency score of >0.70. The analysis showed that stock of birds is the most important determinant of poultry egg production while years of experience, management system, educational level and family size are the socioeconomic characteristic influencing the farmers’ technical efficiency. The findings show that further productivity gains linked to the improvement in TE may still be realized in poultry egg production in Nigeria.

  This study examines the effects of customers’ awareness of avian influenza on poultry egg production enterprise in Lagelu local government area of Oyo State. Primary data were collected from forty-eight poultry farms in the study area using multistage sampling technique. Data collected were analyzed using descriptive statistics, budgetary analysis and multiple regression analysis. The result showed that poultry egg production in the study area is dominated by male (75%) with about 50% of the farmers in their productive age i.e. 21-40 years. Majority of the farmers had formal education (87.5%). The outbreak of the news accounted for about 85% reduction in the farmers’ gross margin per bird. The most effective home grown strategy to restore consumers’ confidence was routine hygiene management. The literacy level of farmers afford the farmers the opportunity of timely information about the disease and possible general management practices.

  This study examined the degree of occupational hazards among Osun state poultry farmers and how it affects their productivity. A structured questionnaire was designed to obtain relevant information from 70 poultry farm owners chosen through random sampling techniques. Descriptive statistics and a linear production function were employed to analyze the data. The results showed that youths were the major set of people in poultry business in the state. All the poultry farmers and farm workers in the study area were educated. Given multiple responses, about 93% of the farm owners experienced physical hazards while 91% were involved in accident at one point or the other. Those who complained of chemical hazards were found to be 86%. An increase in the expenditure on drugs will lead to a decline in net revenue of the poultry farmers per hectares.
