Excerpt from Practical Poultry Keeping In this work I have tried to deal with the various problems of poultry keeping from a business standpoint. Poultry keeping must always be a question of conditions, and I do not advocate these methods as the only ones likely to be followed by success, but the principles which underlie them can be fitted to all occasions. It is recognised that every poultry farmer must have the capacity to adapt himself to local and geographical conditions, but he needs some principles to adapt, and these methods are the groundwork of this book. From an extensive experience of poultry under many conditions, I have tried to get out the bed rock factors which conduce towards success when they are steadily adhered to, and the dietaries advised are not merely theoretical, but have been so widely practised since first I advised them that they have become almost standard dietaries up and down the country. In this work fundamental principles have been dealt with, for to give all the details that arise from special conditions would make a work too cumbersome to be of value, but I hope that every one who uses this will be able to adapt its methods, in any case, where he cannot follow them verbatim et literatim.

Excerpt from The Poultry Keeper, Vol. 40: A Journal for Every One Interested in Making Poultry Pay, Devoted Particularly to Practical Poultry Keeping; April, 1923 This question is usually answered in a way which is very misleading. It is a fact that one will require more land than is usually given as an es timate. It is a mistake to crowd the fowls and we recommend that one buy more land than he thinks he will need. We believe that 100 hens is enough for one acre of land. We know this is much less to the acre than is usually estimated but we be lieve that in the end it will give bet ter results. We have seen 200 hens kept on an acre with good results but we believe that a smaller number will be safer. We would divide the acre into equal plots and rotate the chickens from one to the other. This would keep the ground in good con dition. It means more work to use more ground but it also means bet ter health for the flock. We would say that ten acres for layers and breeding stock would be sufficient land. We recommend an orchard for growing stock. Five acres should easily grow all the stock one would need to keep up the flock. One must figure in a garden and other extras so that perhaps fifteen acres would be about as small a place as one would want to try and get along with and twenty acres would be bet ter. The question which now arises is whether it would be better to do general farming or specialize. Fruit and poultry go together very well but general farming requires too much capital and at present does not pay especially well.

Poultry and Eggs for Market and Export (Classic Reprint)

View: 2312

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 h0pe 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 co-n stant supervision, and strict attention to detail. J R.

Excerpt from Profitable Poultry Keeping on a City Lot: $297; 00 a Year From Twenty-Four Hens I contracted the poultry fever by reading alluring advertisements in poultry journals and magazines. These advertisements and the fact that I needed the money, finally brought the fever to an acute stage, and I became so enthusiastic over the large profits to be made, as per advertisements, that my family could no longer resist the proposition, and we decided to embark in the poultry busi ness at the earliest possible moment. We knew little or nothing about the care and treat ment of poultry, except the information we had gained by reading books on the subject. These dealt with the matter only in a general way, and made the business seem so easy and success so certain that we did not think our lack of practical experience any serious handicap. As is generally the case with the beginner, we did not think it was necessary to start from the bottom and learn the many details of the work. We wanted to get rich quick ly; so naturally, we had to start on as large a scale as possible. Had we been able financially, we would prob ably have bought a large number of adult fowls; but our circumstances would not permit this, so we concluded to get an incubator and a brooder, and to hatch three or four hundred chicks the first season and raise them to maturity. This, we figured, would give us a good foun dation upon which to build our future success. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

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.
