Let’s discuss the reproductory cycle of the female grasscutter in a brief. The reproduction cycle of a mature female grasscutter takes place rapidly. One of the sweet characteristics of this animals that farmers do love is the fact it’s the swiftness of their growth. From the time of pregnancy to delivery is usually five months and hardly exceeds that period except on rare occasion.  And when it’s going to give bith, it gives birth to roughly 4 to 7 young grasscutters at a go. If you go by this calculations, it therefore means that a mature female grasscutter would give birth to 8 to 14 grasscutter in a calendar year.

This is why the few who are into the business are making huge profits from it. Someone once asked me in a seminar, if the grasscutter reared at home has the same market value as that caught in the bush? I simply told him that the one caught in the bush does not have same size as that reared at home. The ones reared at home weighs far higher than that in the bush because you are going to rear them in the right condition, climate and right feeds. And that is why you can sell one grasscutter for a five thousand naira. Anyways the reason we have a very low supply of this meat to the high demand of it, is because the meat is very rare. Not so many persons are into this business. Not so many people sees the opportunities in this business.
