Geese Farming - Where
to Start and What to Expect When Raising Geese
Raising geese is one of the most highly notable
endeavors in the industry of farming. It may be hard at first, but
then again most farming activities are hard. Raising geese, however,
has a string of rewards that no other poultry-related business or
hobby can offer. Indeed, geese farming is something that must be
tried, if only to experience the joy that comes with it.
The basics of
geese farming first involves the choosing of the right
goose breed that will match one's intention for raising and rearing
geese in the first place. There are goose breeds that are better for
hobby purposes, and there are some that are ideal for profit-making.
There are so many goose species out there, but the most commonly
found ones are the following breeds: the African breed, the Egyptian
breed, the Chinese breed, the Pilgrim breed, the Emden breed, and
the Toulouse breed. The Sebaspatol breed as well as the Canadian
breed and the Buff breed are also quite popular in geese farming.
Each of these goose breeds has advantages and disadvantages. It is
best to find out the features of each of these breeds in order to
know which one fits your liking.
Of course, geese farming must be done in a wide track of land. About
an acre - or more if possible - is considered good enough by poultry
experts, but only if the geese to be raised do not exceed twenty.
Otherwise, it's highly suggested to transfer somewhere with a bigger
land area. This space needs to have shelter for the geese,
particularly for the eggs once the first pair of gander and goose
starts to breed. The eggs will come quickly, and they need to be
kept somewhere that's free from insects, mice and other pests, and
away from extreme temperatures.
Now, once the eggs are hatched, geese farming will involve food
options for the young ones. The first thing that comes to mind is
grass, but veterinarians actually discourage grass for newly hatched
geese. Grass can be introduced into their diet after two weeks. In
the interval, poultry food can be given. Water is very important,
and only fresh water should be given. Water from a pond or a stream
is most welcome.
