Organic Bio Farming Methods: Poultry and Diverse

Before the start of commercial chicken farming, chickens where kept in coops at night and let to roam free during the day!
We took them out of their natural environment where they fended for themselves, received plenty of exercise, lived stress free and on a healthy balance of natural food, water and fresh air.

Organic Bio Farming Methods: Poultry and Diverse

  2. 2. Before the start of commercial chicken farming, chickens where kept in coops at night and let to roam free during the day! We changed all that!
  3. 3. By doing this, we not only created an unnatural setting for the creation of mass produced unhealthy food, but also the incubator and breeding ground for various deceases that threaten animals and humans alike. We took them out of their natural environment where they fended for themselves, received plenty of exercise, lived stress free and on a healthy balance of natural food, water and fresh air.
  4. 4. During the course of the past couple of years, I have done in-depth research and testing in organic farming methods, and have come to the conclusion that it is possible to breed and feed poultry in a totally organic manner, free of hormones, antibiotics and feed which include animal by products.
  5. 5. They were given formulated organic feed, certain herbs where planted in their enclosure to boost their immune system and a supply of clean water. Growth and weight increase was monitored and they were fed for sixteen weeks. No mortalities took place in that sixteen week period and they grew to an average slaughtered weight of 5.4 kg. The next test was done with 400 one day old chicks. Still no mortalities, and these were fed up to 8 weeks old. The average slaughtered weight was 2.5 kg.
  6. 6. 2. Their diet did not consist only of dry organic feed and clean water, but also green foliage, bugs and insects that they scratched and scrubbed for. I would just like to point out that this was a successful test due to the following elements: 1. The poultry were given adequate space to roam and forage. 4. Furthermore, I wish to add, that a special and recognized organic material was added to their diet, which kept their digestive systems clean and healthy and enabled them to have optimal benefit from the nutrients in their diet. 3. They were not de-beaked but no cannibalism took place, due to the green feed in their diet.
  7. 7. After having done this test, I decided to develop a farming method, totally organic, eco-friendly and with as small a carbon footprint as possible. First of all I had to select the best possible area for this project. An area that had a good water source and excellent logistics where transport is concerned.
  8. 8. The farm is on the outskirts of Karibib, an impoverished small rural town, from where 90% of my workforce would be recruited.
  9. 9. The main farm layout.
  10. 10. Following and adhering to strict organic rules and guidelines, the following will be implemented: 1. An electrified perimeter fence. 3. A firebreak road, ten meters wide around the inside of the perimeter fence. 4. Water will be supplied from 4 boreholes and Swakoppoort pipeline. 2. 24 hour manned security gate. 5. Water will go through a purification and softening plant.
  11. 11. The water purification plant.
  12. 12. The water softening plant.
  13. 13. 7. The irrigation system consists of pivot, linear, drip and mist dispensing. 6. All waste water will be recycled, and used for irrigation.
  14. 14. The water recycle plant.
  15. 15. 8. 6000 Olive and 3 000 citrus trees will be planted as a decontamination buffer zone, and to further increase income. 9. 50 000 Lay hens to debug, fertilize and supply organic eggs.
  16. 16. The incubation and hatchery system.
  17. 17. 10. 96 poultry coops measuring 10 x 100 meter, with double the area on either side as open areas. 11. Fully automated abattoir and a modern rest/canteen building for the staff. The fully automated abattoir plus staff rest and canteen building.
  18. 18. 12. Employees(+/- 100) will receive above market related remuneration, free medical aid, pension, further company sponsored education and a safe healthy environment to work in. 13. The project will generate its own electricity resource through its solar system, all slaughter waste will be incinerated on site and used together with all other organic farm waste, in the Bio fertilizer process. 14. The project will run on Bio fuel by processing all mortalities as well as the heads and feet of the slaughtered poultry.
  19. 19. 15. Feed will be harvested from the fields and the hydroponic systems. 16. Only Bio fertilizer produced on the project will be used in the fields, and an extract from the Bio fertilizer will be incorporated in the water supply of all Hydroponic systems. 17. The Hydroponic systems have shown to yield 600kg feed from 60kg of seed within 7 days. These seeds will come from the crops grown on the Bio fertilized fields.

  21. 21. This project will not only benefit the employees, but also the community as all excess feed and fertilizer will be sold at cost price and all excess solar generated power will be put back into the town power grid. The project will be involved in workshops to assist the community in organic and bio farming. The employment will be youth and gender based and those with the aptitude for further studies, will be sent with full scholarships to educational institutions. Depending on the source of finance, 25 percent shareholding could be allocated to the community, and all dividends and profits could then be held in trust for development and the eradication of poverty.
  22. 22. The water purification plant, will have the capacity to supply the community with fresh clean water, and the recycle plant will be able to supply the community farms with all excess recycled water. My vision and aim for this project, is not only for it to be a profitable enterprise, but also for it to have a research capability to assist the youth of Africa in self sustainable farming methods. So far, the only options for funding, that I have pursued, was the Development bank and agri bank of Namibia. Due to the scope and magnitude of such a venture, I have so far been unsuccessful in obtaining the necessary funding.
  23. 23. I have decided to use this opportunity, during the Agriculture Science Week, to show what we can achieve in Africa with logical thinking and modern innovation. I hope to attract potential investors and development agencies, during the course of the week, so that with partial funding or a loan, the project can start and show the potential that we have in Africa for self sustainability. Through thorough calculations and taking into account the risks involved in any project, be it farming or industrial, I am more than positive that the project would be able to be ninety percent self sustainable and be able to service a loan within a very short period of time. For the project to be developed and show its true potential, it needs investors with vision and positive outlook in the future of Africa's self sustainability to feed its people.
  24. 24. In conclusion: This project will be the first of its kind in Africa, and due to the diverse implementation of various systems, the first project of this nature, in the world. This system can be adapted and used for all livestock, and I am willing to introduce and implement it in any country in Africa where there is a good source of water and arable land. The total investment needed to construct and implement this project, amounts to twenty million US dollar ($20 000 000.00)
