The project work on the topic “Increasing Grasscutter Production Through the Activities of Co-operative Society in Umudike Umuahia Abia State as the Case Study was done to look into the previous programmes constituted by government to bring into a state of readiness for Grasscutter farmers and producers in co-operatives and the active ones to be more fruitful s a way of making it easy based on the attainment of self-sufficiency on Grasscutter production in Nigeria.

The general problems that affects the success of the objectives of these co-operatives in Umudike Umuahia was proved and how it can affect the co-operatives in Umudike Umuahia was proved. These also include the inefficient service extension workers, inadequate market outlet, inadequate land acquisition, no limit or restriction of membership which might bring in people of different characters whose membership may lead to the decrease in number of the society among others.

Finally this tends to improve the rate of training of workers in co-operative, also where the state and social government agencies should also have an effective co-ordination as this may proffer solution to the objectives of organizing these co-operative societies.

1.0 Introduction

Grasscutter production is another special area of livestock which is based on the animal husbandry which also involved with co-operative society activities.

Much practical exercise has been done in the state through the activities of co-operatives and lots of ideas must be considered which now gave rise to this research study. In this way greater attention has been paid based on the look-down or the neglects and its reasons of not functioning effectively and efficiently on the production of Grasscutter in co-operative

Grasscutter production through the co-operative societies is very much satisfied with the large number of medium–earning producers in Umudike Umuahia. And there is no importance relating to the ownership and use of land, especially farm land revolution or successful changes in this section in particular.

Through the activities of co-operative societies, contributions has been made to the economy, by providing in large quantity this delicious meat (Grasscutter) and creating self employment based on this aspect which is the production of Grasscutter, this now gave rise to the people in the state to look for jobs that will earn more income for a living.

The Grasscutter co-operative producers were not fortune enough to meet the objectives of using Grasscutter production to enhance the economic situation and reformation of the state. With this therefore one ought to understand that co-operative in Umudike Umuahia and their output from the Grasscutter production cannot quench the demand or even satisfy the number of individuals living in the area and also provide the essential tools that are necessary in the production area.

Based on the information gotten from the state livestock report, it showed that these producers have increased in number, they have a larger number of employees mostly in the rural areas and they have contributed greatly in their work.

Government has seen the useful impact of Grasscutter production carried out by co-operative society and encourage the individuals to be more serious so as to enhance a greater production and self-employment in order to develop the rural, states and build a sufficient state and economy.

1.1 Background Of The Study

Having noticed the contributions and effects of the state and the local governments in making the Grasscutter production, the minimum productivity, the employees that are co-operators, there is still this continuous Grasscutter in the nation. One will be able to notice and observe that the number of growth of Grasscutter is no where to be compared with the membership growth, and this helped in the reduction of the benefits of increase income and also increased Grasscutter production.

1.2 Statement Of The Problem

In our nation today programmes and policies are implemented which is geared at removing the stressful circumstance in the co-operative societies. In relation to Grasscutter producers, co-operative are involved in training and organizing rural small scale industries, who are making use of the manual labour form of production in co-operative societies which this process has failed to produce in larger quantity of Grasscutter.

Seeing the gotten ideas and result, the effort of the government based on the production of Grasscutter through co-operative has not made much importance in the improvement on this aspect as extra efforts is placed on this livestock production.

Based on co-operative, there must be a serious reformation of roles in increasing Grasscutter production and this will allow for co-operative societies to take that their placement in the national economy and that of the state economy respectively.

1.3 Objectives Of The Study

The main aim of this research work is to examine the already existing co-operative societies and their effectiveness in advancing in development of Grasscutter production. Also to find out the major problems facing the Grasscutter production area, to know how the producers of this livestock (Grasscutter) co-operative societies are impacting the required knowledge.

To be sure of co-operative organizations, its mode of operation in Abia State, and make suggestions and the way forward in Grasscutter production of the society.

1.4 Scope And Limitation Of The Study

This research work will reach to the examination of sets of ideas or plan of Umudike Umuahia co-operative societies on Grasscutter production which are not always constant but varying and also of our small scale industries for the large production quantity on Grasscutter. And also the study is restricted within the boundary of Umudike Umuahia in Abia State.

1.5 Research Hypothesis

In research hypothesis, they are the very cautions answers and results to research problem which are shown in the way of relationship between changing factors or variables.
For the purpose of this research work, the hypotheses are stated to be:

  1. H0: Insufficient aid from the government through the co-operative societies has not offered help to the Grasscutter producers.
    H1: Sufficient aid from the government through the co-operative societies has offered greatly to Grasscutter production.
  2. H0: The Grasscutter producers are not all that educated on how to carry their work effectively.
    H1: The Grasscutter producers are very much enlightened on how to administer their work effectively.

1.6 Significance Of The Study

Grasscutter production is involved in the livestock section of agriculture. This aspect is very important in the sustenance of the economy. Any effort that is geared in carrying out this research work is based at improving the Grasscutter production should be termed to be good and any solution on the improvement of this part of co-operative have the focus on the sector. This time ought to be considered appropriate, in the sense that, the study of the Grasscutter production in co-operative will be considered in the economic situation in Abia State (Umudike).

The co-operators that are the employees are accurately taken care of not withstanding the fact they perform much to earn for a living and to be self-reliant in the production of Grasscutter. Since the activity is done by the co-operatives, it is very certain that their productivity must be much to boost their profitability rate and the production of Grasscutter will look more attractive and interesting in Abia State.

Programmes and policies that are very meaningful ought to be enacted on co-operative, which will make the managers of cooperative society to adequately re-fashioned and put in order the producers to have an increased Grasscutter production. With this, school and research institutions who wish to embark on a research work on this aspect will have a proper starting point to offer solution to their problems.
