Excerpt from Poultry and Eggs for Market and Export This pamphlet is intended as a handy guide for farmers and others in practical methods of poultry-keeping. It is only in recent years that much attention has been given in New Zealand to poultry-rearing on a large scale, and it is not always recognised that a good deal of know ledge, as well as industry, is required to insure success. It is the desire of the writer to supply this knowledge and prevent beginners from falling into the mistakes which are often made and from spending money unnecessarily. Since the work of instruction was undertaken by the Government there has been a great improvement in the class of poultry kept by farmers, in the methods practised, and in the production of table-poultry and eggs. There is room for much further improvement, and in this direction the officers of the Poultry Division of the Depart ment of Agriculture are always willing to assist with information and advice. The results will depend, as in all business undertakings, upon the skill, industry, and business capacity of those engaged in it. With good management poultry-keeping will give steady cash returns at an early period after embarking in the enterprise, and no other class of stock will give so much profit on the capital invested as poultry will. Poultry-keeping should go hand-in-hand with dairying, also with fruit growing and bee-culture. In addition to their direct profit, poultry are valuable on the farm in enriching the soil or restoring impoverished soil to a fertile condition; in the orchard they search for and devour insects of all kinds, and not a grub will escape them. Poultry-keeping is full of details: attend to these and success will follow. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Practical Management of Poultry, With a View to Profit: A Guide to Successful Poultry Keeping on a Large or Small Scale Many letters are annually received by me, asking a variety of questions with regard to poultry management. I trust the advice here given may tend to remove some of those difficulties with which such correspondents would seem to be at times perplexed. Certain fallacious ideas exist in the public mind as to the possibilities of poultry farming. I have not hesitated to strike a note of warning by pointing out the risks which attend the keeping of large numbers of fowls in conhue ment in a limited area, such as the term poultry farming usually implies.

Winter Eggs

A Handbook on Utility Poultry Keeping, Embodying the American Intensive Methods, With Complete Index (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Winter Eggs: A Handbook on Utility Poultry Keeping, Embodying the American Intensive Methods, With Complete Index There can be no two opinions as to the desirability of largely developing the poultry industry in this country, and the reform of the Irish egg trade shows what can be done by adopting a rational system of collection and marketing. But this little book deals with another aspect of the case, giving full details of the American intensive system of poultry rearing, which is now on its trial in this country, in the hope that it may lead to a large increase in production. It seems to be generally agreed that - apart from the production of pedigree stock and the taking of pupils - poultry farming on the ordinary English lines does not pay when considerable sums have to be expended on food, and a large area devoted to its practice. It is of course a most valuable accessory industry, regarded as a means of utilising certain forms Of waste, and is sufficiently remunerative on a small scale. The American system enables an enormous reduction to be made in the space required, and claims to reduce the cost of production so that satisfactory profits can be made even when large quantities of food have to be bought. The author has made a careful theoretical and practical study of the subject, and the numerous poultry-keepers who desire to test the intensive system will find this book a thoroughly practical guide. But even if American methods are proved to be suitable for Britain, success in their application cannot'be expected without con stant supervision, and strict attention to detail. J R.

Excerpt from Poultry Culture for Profit: An Illustrated Guide to the General Management of Poultry When, little more than a year ago, I wrote a small book on Poultry for Profit, as an aid to the utilitarian side of poultry keeping, I purposed to write another of the same size dealing with Fancy poultry. It has proved a more arduous task than I expected, and has developed into a much more lengthy work, appealing not alone to the fancier, but to the utility breeder also. It has been written amid the stress of many other occupations, and if at times the connections seem dis jointed and the same thing be referred to more than once, I must beg the indulgence of the reader though the reiteration of important points is not without its value in a book not meant to be a work of fine art, but a practical guide for the breeder.

The most comprehensive guide to date on raising all-natural poultry for the small-scale farmer, homesteader, and professional grower. The Small-Scale Poultry Flock offers a practical and integrative model for working with chickens and other domestic fowl, based entirely on natural systems. Readers will find information on growing (and sourcing) feed on a small scale, brooding (and breeding) at home, and using poultry as insect and weed managers in the garden and orchard. Ussery's model presents an entirely sustainable system that can be adapted and utilized in a variety of scales, and will prove invaluable for beginner homesteaders, growers looking to incorporate poultry into their farm, or poultry farmers seeking to close their loop. Ussery offers extensive information on: The definition of an integrated poultry flock (imitation of natural systems, integrating patterns, and closing the circle) Everything you need to know about your basic chicken (including distinctive points about anatomy and behavior that are critical to management) Extended information on poultry health and holistic health care, with a focus on prevention Planning your flock (flock size, choosing breeds, fowl useful for egg vs. meat production, sourcing stock) How to breed and brood the flock (including breeding for genetic conservation), including the most complete guide to working with broody hens available anywhere Making and mixing your own feed (with tips on equipment, storage, basic ingredients, technique, grinding and mixing) Providing more of the flock's feed from sources grown or self-foraged on the homestead or farm, including production of live protein feeds using earthworms and soldier grubs Using poultry to increase soil fertility, control crop damaging insects, and to make compost-including systems for pasturing and for tillage of cover crops and weeds Recipes for great egg and poultry dishes (including Ussery's famous chicken stock!) And one of the best step-by-step poultry butchering guides available, complete with extensive illustrative photos. No other book on raising poultry takes an entirely whole-systems approach, or discusses producing homegrown feed and breeding in such detail. This is a truly invaluable guide that will lead farmers and homesteaders into a new world of self-reliance and enjoyment.

Das Buch ist ein globales Phänomen. Es wurde 3,5 Millionen Mal verkauft, in rekordverdächtigen 43 Sprachen publiziert und ist auf 5 Kontinenten zum Bestseller geworden. Nun ist es in einer aktualisierten und erweiterten Auflage neu erschienen. - Der internationale Bestseller: Jetzt mit neuem Vorwort, neuen Kapiteln und aktualisierten Fallstudien - Ein Bestseller auf 5 Kontinenten - Weltweit mehr als 3,5 Millionen Bücher verkauft - In 43 Sprachen übersetzt - Ein Wall-Street-Journal-, Businessweek- und Fast-Company-Bestseller Der von Organisationen und Branchen auf der ganzen Welt hochgeschätzte Bestseller stellt alles in Frage, was wir bisher über die Voraussetzungen strategischen Erfolgs zu wissen glaubten. Der Blaue Ozean als Strategie, vertritt die Ansicht, dass ein brutaler Konkurrenzkampf nur dazu führt, dass sich die Konkurrenten in einem blutrot gefärbten Ozean um rapide schwindende Gewinnmöglichkeiten streiten. Basierend auf der Untersuchung von mehr als 150 strategischen Schachzügen (im Lauf von mehr als 100 Jahren und in mehr als 50 Branchen) vertreten die Autoren die Ansicht, dass nachhaltiger Erfolg nicht auf verschärftem Konkurrenzkampf, sondern auf der Eroberung »Blauer Ozeane« beruht: der Erschließung neuer Märkte mit großem Wachstumspotenzial. Der Blaue Ozean als Strategie präsentiert einen systematischen Ansatz, wie man Konkurrenz irrelevant macht, und legt Prinzipien und Methoden vor, mit der jede Organisation ihre eigenen Blauen Ozeane erobern kann. Diese erweiterte Auflage enthält: - Ein neues Vorwort der Autoren: Hilfe! Mein Ozean färbt sich rot. - Aktualisierungen der in dem Buch behandelten Fälle und Beispiele, indem ihre Geschichte bis in die Gegenwart weitervorfolgt wird. - Zwei neue Kapitel und ein erweitertes drittes Kapitel: Ausrichtung, Erneuerung und Red Ocean Traps. Sie behandeln die wichtigsten Fragen, die die Leser in den vergangenen zehn Jahren gestellt haben. Der bahnbrechende Bestseller stellt das bisherige strategische Denken auf den Kopf und entwirft einen kühnen neuen Weg in die Zukunft. Hier können Sie lernen, wie man neue Märkte erschließt, auf denen Konkurrenz noch keine Rolle spielt. "Das ist ein extrem wertvolles Buch." Nicolas G. Hayek, Verwaltungsratpräsident, Swatch Group "Ein Muss für Manager und Wirtschaftsstudenten." Carlos Ghosn, President und CEO, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.

Kaye had two husbands before her marriage to the artist Ronald Searle, and the torment of his sudden and shocking departure never left her. Yet to the outside world Kaye Webb remained passionate and unstoppable. This is the unknown story of the woman who brought the joy of books to children everywhere whilst battling the emotional pain that plagued her private life.
