Agriculture / Re: Hidden Truths About Catfish Business!!! by dkings101(m): 9:18am On May 28
I have been using local feed wt the formular from this thread. I wd admit it is cost saving and I have the option to dictate the amount of protein I want it to have. But i notice the byproduct comes wt a lot of shaft residue and also my gutter pact is filled with human-like faeces. I have to use water to flush the gutter pact cos it smells if left to remain there. Do anyone experience this? I also noticed the water get polluted fast.

Also, I went to the local feed mill to complain abt the shaft residue I see in my tank and they said it might be the feed composition. I was also advice to add poultry feed protein (forgotten the name though) I was told one 5kg can be used for one ton of feed and it's rich in protein so and if I want to prepare a 80kg feed, I wd need 0.4kg which would cost 500Naira...and I can use 0.8kg to supplement 72% feed mill and I can also add 72% to aid quick growth.

my points exactly johneey, most of these so called union are infested with greedy people, I am a member of two union but trust me they are nothing to write home about, quarrel here and there, back biting, no love, and full of retired men and women who lack foresight.. I just decided to lay low and keep doing my thing.. But if we can have a generation of young and vibrant farmers who are willing to come together and think with mind blowing ideas on how to move forward the sky will be our starting point.

www.agricnetwork.com

Oga Robonski15 u never tell me hw much melange goes for nw. I am ready to sell them off and go back to the drawing board. Also I have post and juveniles for sale too.

Hw much can does it take to feed 1 fish till maturity (tot I read N135 in this thread) so I can knw hw much I wd be budgeting for feeding in my next farming.
Agriculture / Re: Hidden Truths About Catfish Business!!! by dkings101(m): 7:38pm On May 11
It's high time we formed a union cos this price is just too low, the ppl making the gains are the market women...I see them as extortionist. We need a union or association so we can stick to a uniform price.

The bigger ones you weigh were around 2.2 kg which will make up for the smaller ones of which you showed me their random weight with your scale. with the medium 0.8 and smallest 0.5 to 0.6.

What's the cost of feeding per fish till maturity? Want to get it right the third time. So I knw hw much fish to rear and hw much capital I wd be investing...thanks.

Also hw much does melange goes for nw per kg?

My oga Giving up is not an option, it doesn't work with my system.. where is your location? if you are in Lagos I have ready buyers and how many kg of mélange do you presently have on ground. Sell them off then we go back to the drawing board.

Yes I won't give up and I promise my third farming wd be a success...I wd attain the 1kg benchmark. My farm is in Aiyetoro close to Ayobo. I need to weigh them to know there kg...I guess 300g to 400g makes a melange right? Some should be lesser. I want to sell them off and go back to the drawing board and fix up my mistake. Right nw, am having high blood pressure cos I ve depleted my cash on feeding.. just squeezing and borrowing to feed them. If nt my family tat believe in me, who else can I run to for finance?

@ dkings 101 we are here to assist one another, if you don't understand some stuff kindly as and we will be glad to answer, more so When you commence construction of the hatchery we would love to see some pictures. Cheers

Thanks my oga...I found this thread too late. This is my second farming season and wd be my 1 year in the business. In this second season, I realise I over stock my tanks with fishes (I used the rubber tanks). As such, I didn't know I would be spending more that expected on feeding. The fast growers are in a 4000 litre tank and they are like 150 weighing 700g to 1kg. I ve begin selling them off to bar for N550 per kg so I can raise money to rear like 500 pics of melange. I am planning selling off the juvenile and post.

Though I foresee me losing this season. Can I see buyer who would buy the melange which weigh abt 300g? If yes hw much is the market price per kg?

Hard lesson learnt bt I won't give up as u didn't give up after losing millions of naira...I would only rear what I can feed on my third farming and I hope to recuperate my loss.
Agriculture / Re: Hidden Truths About Catfish Business!!! by dkings101(m): 3:22pm On May 09
I ve been reading this forum and only replied to a post recently. It almost one year am in the biz and this is my second breeding...so far, the fast growing ones are weighing 600g at 4 month bt I ve depleted my cash. So I started selling to bar parlour at the rate of N550 per kg and they all weigh 42kg . The first batch I forecast sales of N20+ but I still have other melange and post finger nails. I have spent close to 95k on feeding. I think at this point am already running into lose. I have released my mistakes which is overstocking without having enough capital to train them all...the whole fish so far should be 2500 thereabouts.

Business / Catfish Business: My Experience, Challenges And Possibly Feeding Solution by dkings101(m): 8:20pm On Apr 27
Dear NLers,

I am into Catfish rearing business for close to a year. The experience so far hasn't been encouraging. The business is a fun biz. I enjoy every bit of it as it gives me the comfort to work from home and be my own boss. Now I don't find it easy as there are some factors that seems to be threatening the existence of the business which are feeding cost, period of consumption and marketing price during harvest.

The price for the feed has gone up since the devaluation of the Naira and reason being most of the feed are all imported except Vital feed, with its price has also increased. Secondly, the fish consumes 30kg in less than 12 days and which is N10,000 and they aren't growing as fast as I would ve desired. My wallet is almost empty and am going bankrupt.

I have devices an alternative feed for them. I Google and found someone posted on nairaland that the fish eats Indomie and biscuits. I also checked the food ingredients on durantee feed and I device a possible way of feeding.

I bought rejected noodles 10kg, add up and mix it with fish meal 72% 1kg, grounded soy bean 2kg and full fat 1kg. This cost me N2200. To my surprise, the fish are eating and picking it. I don't know if this would make them grow well as wen they are eating processed feeds but at least it would save me cost of buying imported feed which goes for N4500-N6600 and also stop them from killing and eating themselves.

It would be nice if the fishes are sold per unit and not by kg. Pls, is there any possible solution to overcome these challenges so the business can be lucrative cos I believe in consistency in business.

Bros I am feeling ur pain. These cc are so so silly...I am tired of telling my name, my phone number and where am calling from cos they won't do anything. nw I just call an alphabet letter to them as my name.

I think Glo management are in to defraud and extort us of our hard earn kobo. IKEDC won't give u light and expect u to pay bill, glo go come with their own, govt too...in short we need a credible body that would take poor man's complains serious because this cabals are stealing seriously from us.

Glo has to sit up and get their service right. If they block the BBC month service, I think we would have to switch to android and it would affect BlackBerry sales and their net profit. They need to give us a better plan for our BlackBerry if they want us to subscribe with the right plan.

Thank goodness am not the only one experiencing this bad service glo is rendering to its customers. I have to call them on Friday...I spoke with 6 agents...the first 3 had to disconnect my call when I asked to speak to a superior. I didn't note down their names so after that I started noting down all reps I spoke to.

The fourth agent I spoke to was named Samuel who told me my area isn't 3G covered shocked shocked, meanwhile I have been using their 3G for more than 7 month since I port to the network, he spoke so rude and end the call.

Called agent number 5 name Lucy, she was rude and wen I asked to speak to a superior, she sent the call to a automated line which disconnects after 3 min..I called again and she pick it again and I gave my own share of my rudeness.

The last agent I spoke which was Ade, told me that in as much I can see the H sign with the BlackBerry logo by it means my area is 3G covered shocked shocked (what a conflicting report from Samuel)...he said he wd send a reminder to the network team to still work on the line...

The problem is their network which they won't fix..my subscription expires on the 5th of April and imagine calling them for one particular issue since last week till date. They are just so incompetent with their service. Wish etisalat can offer a better deal for the BlackBerry 10 users. Glo really sucks.

Phones / Anyone Experiencing Glo Bad Network??? by dkings101(m): 7:44pm On Mar 27
Hi NLers,

I don't know if am the only one experiencing bad service from Glo. Since last week, I ve been calling their 333 BlackBerry help desk to complain about the poor service I get jn my area...imagine calling everyday for 2 weeks and you are to use the BlackBerry service for 4 weeks.

The problem am facing is if the signal is on 3G, it shows H with the BlackBerry logo and it won't browse, even if it does, it's super slow after which it would change from sos to emergency call only to searching for network. I am so tired and angry right nw. With that, I get a no voice service too.

I ve downgraded to 2G, it shows E with the BlackBerry logo and the browsing is slow and somethings it doesn't browse. I use a BlackBerry z10 and on the BBC month plan. I don't mind switching bt I can't get a better deal else where. Is anyone experiencing the same problem like me.

Thanks for the advice. I would like to know how much it's been sold for when smoked and how is it sold?
Business / Underpricing Of Catfish After Harvest by dkings101(m): 11:01pm On Feb 14
I am into Catfish rearing business. The business is lucrative but the challenges am experiencing is when it's time to sell after harvest. The amount the customers are offering, I feel is too small when you imagine the amount of input and time invested. Around my area (Ayobo) 2 tablesize fish that makes 1 kg is being priced for at N430 by those market women and some are offering to pay N425.

The price is just too low and I guess this problem is cos the business doesn't have association to impose a uniform price. The amount of time and input invested for 4-5 month before sales doesn't equal the price market women want to purchase the fish.

The same fish they bought at N430 (being 2 fishes) they would sell each for N500 and pepper soup sellers would sell each plate for N700.

Is anyone facing my kind of plight. What can I do to at least smile doing sales after harvest. I need advice. Thanks.
