The student’s population of the Department stands at one hundred and ninety-three (193) made up of only forms one and two students with one hundred and thirteen (113) form two students comprising three classes and eighty (80) form one students made up of two classes. The Department registered and presented a total number of seventy-eight students for the 2023 WASSCE. Apart from classroom work, the department has a Poultry Unit that can house about one thousand five hundred (1500) fowls and a piggery with a capacity that holds about sixty (60) matured pigs or one hundred (100) growing pigs. Though the Department embarked on a Rabbitry, a challenge with labor for its maintenance was encountered leading to its collapse. However, plans are advanced in reviving the unit since the earlier challenge has been dealt with.

At the moment, there is an ongoing pilot project on fish farming at the Department. An earth-pond holding about 50 growing catfish is in operation. All the above projects are carried out for academic purposes as well as for commercial activity to produce Internally Generated Funds (IGF) for the school and also to equip students of the department with some entrepreneurial skills in Agribusiness before completing school. Despite the strides being made by the department academically and practically, a few challenges need to be addressed to ensure the smooth running of the various projects being undertaken. These include:

Expansion of the Poultry Unit to accommodate at least 2500 fowls at any given time.

Provision of an efficient storage facility for meat and fish.

Installation of Modern irrigation facility to ensure the production of selected crops especially, vegetables throughout the year.

Installation of battery cages at the Poultry Unit for the production of eggs.

Provision of adequate funds to facilitate the bulk purchase of feed for the fowls and pigs among others.

The Department has the vision of creating a special vocational school to train young men and women in an efficient and modern ways of producing selected farm animals (both traditional and non-traditional) and crops.
