For the attainment of processed maize of high-quality forms with insignificant labour-intensive tasks, this paper considered the design and development of the maize shelling machine with locally sourced materials. The developed machine was tested and its performance was evaluated against a hand maize shelling machine. The developed machine is found to be faster in shelling operation by more than 3 times than the hand maize shelling machine, the designed machine was documented with 100Kg/hr and 99.73% shelling effective capacity and shelling efficiency, respectively. An overall production cost of N95.970 was incurred.
