  How Much Honey from a Beehive

How much honey can you get from a beehive over a period of time? I know it will differ due to difference in feed intake etc, but I just want an average value.

Posted by: FarmTech - 01-07-2015, 12:07 AM - Forum: Livestock Farming - Replies (5)

1. Ebook #1: Free Range Snail Farming
[Image: FarmersJoint-Snail-Ebook.png]

The free range method of snail farming is cheaper and less laborious than the common intensive method. In this ebook you’ll get a very good idea on how you can build a free range pen, how to keep out predators like ants, lizards, birds etc.

2. Ebook #2: Rabbit Farming
[Image: FarmersJoint-Rabbit-Ebook.png]

I have my eyes on rabbit farming. Why? Because rabbits are prolific – they give birth to up to 7 babies at a go. Not only that, their pregnancy last of only 31 days! At this rate, rabbits can give birth 5 times per year and that’s about 7x5=35 rabbits per year per doe. This ebook covers rabbit housing, feeding, diseases, breeding, butchering for sale etc.

3. Ebook #3: Broiler Farming
If you have problem with excess broiler mortality, you can reduce it if you follow the advice contained in this ebook. You’ll discover a lot of things that most broiler farmers ignore or take for granted.

You can downloads all these ebooks here: Ebooks for Registered members

  Download Feed Formulae for Various Farm Animals
Posted by: FarmTech - 01-06-2015, 11:50 PM - Forum: Livestock Farming - Replies (53)

Animals will grow faster when fed diets that meet their nutritional requirement. The nutritional requirements will vary depending on the type of animal, productivity and age. Broiler chicks will have a different feed requirement from grown up broilers. Also cattle will have a totally different requirement from poultry. A cow producing milk will have a different requirement from one not producing milk etc.

To formulate feed that meet the animals’ requirements, different feed ingredients are usually blended in certain proportion to meet the requirement.

The ebook you’re about to download for free contains feed formulae for the following animals:

1. Egg layers (chick starter, grower and layers)
2. Broilers (starter and finisher)
3. Pigs (Sow, weaners and growers/fatteners)
4. Catfish and Tilapia

To download these free ebook, you must have made at least 10 posts in this forum. If you have made up to 10 posts, click on the link below to download the ebook

  How does commercial chicken farms control lice?

Hello fello farmers, how can I control lice? The lice chemicals I know of are pour-ons which you apply individually on the birds. But in a case where you have over 500 birds, do you treat them individually?
