     IT IS TIME TO GO ORGANIC

    Background and Objective: The poultry industry is greatly impeded by coccidiosis and these parasites have developed resistant strains to most of the synthetic treatments applied. This study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of aqueous leaf extracts of Carica papaya (C. papaya) and Aloe vera (A. vera) on parasitological and haematological parameters as well as growth performance of Eimeria-infected Kabir chickens. Materials and Methods: Fresh leaves were harvested and dried in gentle heat. Ground and sieved powder of fresh leaves was used to prepare the aqueous extracts. Chickens were infected with 3200 Eimeria oocysts until they began shedding oocysts in their faeces. The aqueous extracts were orally administered at doses of 0.32, 0.80 and 1.44 g--1 chicken--1. There were 3 experimental groups per extract made up of T1-T3 and two control chambers (T4, T5). Chickens of T4 were infected but not treated while T5 was the neutral group. Results: The best anticoccidial effect was observed in the T3 group which was treated with A. vera extract at a concentration of 1.44 g chicken--1 day--1. Both extracts (C. papaya and A. vera) had similar effects on growth performance with non-significant differences. Though both extracts of C. papaya and A. vera had significant effect on haematological parameters like red blood cell (RBC) and white blood cell (WBC) counts as well as haemoglobin (Hb) values, the differences were however not significant. Both extracts significantly reduced the burdens of emeriosis in chickens. Conclusion: C. papaya and A. vera aqueous extracts had good anticoccidial properties and significantly reduced the oocyst counts and improved the RBC and WBC values in the chickens.

    I just want to say hello since I just joined a couple hours ago. I am a small time homesteader that is looking to become more self reliant. I currently have 1 beef cow, 3 chickens for eggs and 11.25 acres. I did not get my garden in this year but hoping to accomplish it next year as I want to start canning next year. The less $ I have to spend in stores the better and the more food I grow myself the healthier I can be! Any advice is greatly appreciated as I learn more on the endeavor and learning to use the new network. Not the best pictures but it is what it is. The cow is definitely not skinny, just the angle the picture was taken.

    The Significance of Funding for Business

    The Significance of Funding for BusinessThe significance of funding for business cannot be over emphasized. With rare exceptions, money is crucial to get a business up and running. Once profits start coming in, some of that revenue can be reinvested in the business to attract more customers and rake in even more profits. Proper planning and cash management ensure that business funds are not wasted on initiatives with a poor return on investment. Money as a Barrier to EntryAccording to MaRS, money, aka capital requirements, represents a significant barrier to entry for many people interested in starting a new business...

    A Survey of Working Capital Loan

    By HAVELET FINANCE

    Published Apr 12 

    What Is Working Capital LoanA Working Capital Loan is one that is availed of to fund the day-to-day operations of a business, ranging from payment of employees’ wages to covering accounts payable. Not all businesses see regular sales or revenue throughout the year, and sometimes the need for capital to keep the operations going may arise. This is usually the case with companies that have seasonal business cycles or cyclical sales, while some other may require such a loan during festive seasons or periods of reduced business activity. Such loans may be secured or unsecured, that is, you may or may not be required to pledge a collateral to avail of the loan, depending on the loan amount and the business’ financial health. A company’s working capital is also a reflection of its financial health and liquidity position...

    Managing the health challenges of moving to free-range egg production.

    More than 200 US retailers have agreed to switch to free-range egg production by 2025.

    The move will bring major challenges to the way birds are produced, but it will also mean big shifts in the ways bird health and welfare need to be managed.

    Experts from across the industry talked to Poultry Health Today about the challenges producers switching to free-range systems face in terms of maintaining flock health.

    More importantly, they identify the management practices producers will need to adopt if they're going to ensure their birds remain healthy and productive.

    "Evaporative Cooling vs. Dry Floors:
    A Balancing Act"

    "We are often asked the question, 'During hot weather flocks, how can I prevent wet litter in the front of my tunnel ventilated houses using evaporative cooling?' Realistically, we have to understand that a good tunnel house
    using evaporative cooling just doesn't allow the air to dry the litter as well in the front of the house, so you can't
    totally prevent some build-up of moisture in the litter. The good news is there are steps you can take to manage
    the problem. However, keeping litter moisture to a minimum and making good use of evaporative cooling for best
    flock performance is definitely a balancing act."

    How to Make Fermented Chicken Feed
    Fermenting chicken feed is an easy and inexpensive way to improve the nutritional value of your chickens food, leading to overall better health -- and quality of eggs! It takes very little supplies and time to do. Come learn how!
    Prep Time: 5 mins Fermentation Time: 3 d
    Equipment
    Large glass jar, mixing bowl, bucket, or other container (BPA-free preferred)
    Ingredients
    1-2 servings chicken feed of choice
    Instructions
    Add enough chicken feed to the container for one or two days servings for your flock.
    1: Pour dechlorinated or filtered water over the top of the feed. Add enough so that the feed is fully submerged and has a couple inches of room to expand. (If needed, simply leave a glass of city tap water out at room temperature overnight to allow the chlorine to dissipate.)
    2: Cover the top of the container with a loose-fitting lid, plate, or other makeshift lid. It doesn't need to be air tight.
    3: Set the container in a location with moderate temperatures for three to four days to ferment (such as out on the counter, in the garage, etc).
    4: Check and stir it each day. Add additional water if the feed has absorbed it all.
    5: After 3 to 4 days (our chickens prefer day 3) give them the fermented feed. If it hasn't absorbed all of the water, you can either drain it off and discard, or reserve the liquid to jump start a new batch of fermented feed.
    6: Repeat as desired, and develop a schedule. Since it takes a few days to ferment, some folks start staggered batches every day (put a date on the container!) in order to have a finished batch of fermented feed available at all times.
