Tips To Cut Cost Of Broiler And Catfish Feed By More Than 50% by freshdewsfarm: 12:52pm On Aug 25, 2019
Hello Nairalanders,
This thread is to encourage members in the Agricultural sector to brainstorm and come up with alternatives to commercial feed. As we know up to 70% of the cost of running a successful poultry or fish farming operations come from feeding. We at freshdews farms ltd have evolved a number of approaches to achieving this objective.

We will be bringing to you from time to time our proven methods.

This edition will dwell on Duckweed/Azolla

We have successfully used Duckweed and Azolla to significantly reduce the cost of feeding our catfish. See pictures below. In due time we will update you on our effort in Broiler as well. Meanwhile you can source Duckweed/Azolla from us and we will guide you on how to grow them.

Catfish naturally enjoys eating duckweed/azolla; you don't need to train them on that.

The combination of both duckweed and azolla can replace up to 80% commercial feed in catfish according to our research in the farm. The protein contents from most academic literature is around 40%.

Awesome revelation @Op.

And there's also our MBF High Quality Cassava Peel (HQCP) Fine and Course Mash for Animal and Aqua feed.

One of the selling points of the product is that it achieves a feed conversion ratio (for) of 1:1 (compared with 1: 0.5 that is obtainable with most conventional feeds on the market) as an excellent quality, 100% floating, non-leaching fish feed. This is based on test results conducted by Everest Farms limited, Ikorodu (the producers of Premium Fish Feeds). The product costs N2,700 per 50kg, and N50,000 per tonne.

Our factory is located at Oyo town (Oyo East local government area, Oyo state). You can reach us via WhatsApp on 08056460390.
