A leading agricultural project management company with a core focus on mass-breeding and marketing of grasscutter products. Jovana integrated farms have been involved in the farming of grasscutters for many years and have functioned effectively and successfully as grasscutter farmers and training facilitators in Nigeria.

The company presents seminars on grasscutter production to various groups and individuals across the country. Over the past 20 years, more than 10,000 participants have attended this widely acclaimed nationwide seminars.

I have been fortunate to spend considerable time in the farm and had the opportunity to study the breed well while there. The actual crossbreed grasscutter was probably derived from indigenous grasscutters that were farmed by the locals in West Africa. Our goal is and has always been to focus on quality, not quantity and to promote honesty, sincerity and integrity in our service to all breeders of better animals.

Subsequent crossbreeding with Thronomys Swinderianus and Savannah grasscutter breeds has helped them to become the strain they are today. The selective breeding process was based on meat production and prolific reproduction and so, the grasscutter has a very fast growth rate with very desirable carcass qualities. The crossbreed grasscutters also possesses strong disease resistance and is very adaptable to harsh environments.
