Re: Backyard Swine Raising
Hello to everyone, PCARRDers. Thanks a lot for accomodating me. I'm a newcomer who wants to gather as much information & ideas to gain knolwledge on swine production ( fattening first). In fact, l am already building a pig housing and nearing completion at this time. I have already observed the Backyard usual/old style or way of swine production in our area but I want to try this new concept of raising hogs, The Deep Beded Sytem of Swine Production. By the way, Is this the same with the Korean Natural Farming Technology? I would greatly appreciate, if anyone of the respected members of PCARRDers would share their knowledge & experience on the Ff:
1) Deep beded System
-What is the Standard design & measurement?
-Is the rice husk need to be always dry & protected by Screen?
-The hogs should go to the rice husk bed to excrete, How would you orient or train the hogs to go to that area to urinate & deposit?
-Is there any particular breed appropriate for this DBS?
-Where can I buy reading materials or can I download ?
-Is there a scheduled seminar regarding this DBS or KNF?
-Is there any bad effect known in using DBS or KNF in cold areas like Baguio or the Cordilleras where I am Located?.
2) Feed formulation the natural way
Where can I Buy or obtain detailed procedures regarding this topic?
I would appreciate so much any information & experience you can share to me.
Thanks & GOD Bless
