  Milk Yield of A Goat
Posted by: Danny - 12-30-2015, 03:40 PM - Forum: Livestock Farming - Replies (1)

Hello keepers of Nigerian dwarf goats, from your experience, how much milk does a goat produce per milking cycle? If you can't estimate that, how much do they produce per day on average? It will be nice if you also tell me what and how much you feed them because these can influence milk production. Thanks.

  Deworming
Posted by: Henlus - 12-26-2015, 10:40 PM - Forum: Livestock Farming - Replies (2)

Often growers reared on deep litter suffer from roundworm infestation of the intestines and sometimes also from tapeworms, especially if the farm is located around wet fields. As a routine precaution therefore, the birds should be dewormed at 16 weeks of age or in the 18th week, a few days before they are to be transferred to laying cages. Otherwise, the worms eat the feed consumed by the birds and their health may deteriorate, which can hamper the onset of egg-laying. Piperazine, robendol, levamisole, thiobendazole and zodex are the drugs used to remove roundworms, while kalbend, panacur, taenil, helmonil and dicestal are used against tapeworms at the recommended dosage levels. Stop watering for two hours before administering deworming drugs and then allow limited levels of medicated water to ensure that the required dosage of medicine is consumed by the birds without any wastage through left-over water.

  How Best to Feed in Large-Scale Chicken Farming
Posted by: John@ - 12-26-2015, 09:50 PM - Forum: Livestock Farming - No Replies

I was shocked when I read that people own as much as 10,000 birds. Imagine how much feed the chickens will consume per day. How do they manage to minimize cost? Bank loan? If so that’s quite a risk.
