In line with the core objective of our company towards helping farmers become successful, we’ve gone the extra mile in the investment of quality time and effort to develop Green Eagles’ Agrobiotics. It’s an exciting solution that would help livestock farmers achieve the following:
GEAS Agrobiotics should be added to both the water and food of livestocks. Add 5ml of the solution to every 3 Ltrs of water served to the animals. Do the same for fishes at a lower concentration of up to a multiple of 20.
However, in order to get the best possible results in terms of reduction of the cost of feeding your livestock by 40-50%, use Eagles Agrobiotics to FERMENT your animal feed! There are two processes of feed fermentation, but we will advise farmers to use batch fermentation in order to keep it simple. The following are the steps to apply the solution to feed fermentation:
Determine the quantity of feed that is equivalent to 50% or 60% of how much you normally feed your animals with. For example, if you were feeding them with 100kg per day, you’ll reduce it to 50kg if your target is 50% reduction, or you can make it 60kg if your target is 40% reduction.
Get a plastic container and dispense half of the quantity that makes up the 50% or 60% above into it. Make sure the feed does not exceed 2/3 of the capacity of the container. If you need more than one container, don’t shy away from it. Please note: don’t use any metal container except it’s Stainless Steel.
Add 5ml of Green Eagles Agrobiotics to every 4Ltrs of water you intend to add to the feed before adding it. Stir the mixture and allow it to settle down. Make sure the water is a few inches above the level of the feed.
Cover the plastic container with its lid, or nylon, or clean cloth in a way that is not completely air-tight. Keep the container under a shelter away from the sun.
Stir it at least once in a day, and leave it for 3 days. Add more water as required to make sure water is always a few inches above the feed level. You’ll notice some bubbles, and (or) slight alcohol or sour odour. That shows fermentation has taken place.
Dispense the feed into a sieve to drip or decant to remove as much of the liquid as possible. Then mix with the dry half of the feed that makes up 50%-60% of their daily ration. And serve it to them.
In order to make sure you have fermented feed to serve them everyday, prepare 3 batches of the fermented feed on the first 3 days consecutively. Feed them first with the first batch, and replace it immediately. That way, there will always be fermented feed to mix with the dry half for them everyday.
NOTE: Using GEAS Agrobiotics for the fermentation process will help guarantee 100% success of the process because unwanted microflora are kept off. Moreover, it will make the process faster, and the media and feed richer with various vitamins, enzymes and minerals essential for the health and wellness of your livestock.
In conclusion, you could save as much as N220,000 within six weeks on 1000 broilers (for example), and increase your profit to N300,000 instead of N80,000 on the average. And you can afford to employ an extra hand to help with the additional task of fermentation if you wish. Why settle for less?
Our aim here is the sensitization of livestock farmers on how to increase farm yields and maximize returns on their investments through hydroponics fodder production to cater for their animals. This technology is accessible to both small and large-scale farmers. The two main grain types we use to produce hydroponic fodder are wheat and sorghum.
Hydroponics technology can be adopted using locally available materials to control temperature. A farmer can construct a 3m by 4m house unit which has the capacity to produce enough feed for two dairy cows, 10 (pigs, goats, sheep) and over 400 birds. The amount of fodder from this unit is equivalent to two acres of Napier grass. So, it actually has the capability to completely replace the need for conventional feeds in some livestock.
GEAS Organic Fertilizers are manufactured commercial products which contain essential plant nutrients. For a material to be qualified as a fertilizer it should contain nutrients in appreciable amount and in readily or potential usable form. Fertilizers are used with the sole purpose of improving soil fertility so that it can support larger harvests. It represents the most common currency used by farmers to deposit plant nutrients into their soil to ensure that adequate nutrients are available to feed the crop.
Soil is the loose surface of the earth’s crust, which serves as a natural medium for plants to grow and it must supply sufficient quantity of nutrients for the growth of plants.
Soil fertility is diminishing gradually due to soil erosion, loss of nutrients, accumulation of salts and other toxic elements, water logging and un-balanced nutrient compensation. Organic wastes and bio-fertilizers are the alternate sources to meet the nutrient of crops and to bridge the future gaps. Farming regions that emphasizing heavy chemical application led to adverse environmental, agricultural and health consequences. Many efforts are being exercised to combat the adverse consequences of chemical farming.
The plants absorb nutrients in specific ionic forms, which either a fertilizer furnishes, when it dissolves in soil water or various chemical and biological agents. Fertilizers are therefore, essential to the future welfare of our modem world where the population is increasing so rapidly that it is estimated that one tenth people have too little to eat to secure good health.
The most challenging part of livestock production is the cost of feeding the animals optimally in a consistent fashion till they are sold while maintaining a good profit margin. This is due to the high cost of feed ingredients, which has made some livestock farmers quit the agribusiness industry, while intending farmers would rather not venture into the livestock business. In our quest to provide solutions to this problem (which we are also faced with daily as farmers) we have worked out a very cheap and high-quality feed for poultry, rabbits, fishes etc.
Here we are talking about affordability and we mean it. Can you imagine cutting the cost of feeding your animals by as much as 40% and still have the guarantee of getting a result that is mostly better than what you presently obtain? That is what we roll out of our mills to ensure that every livestock farmer can peacefully raise their animals, and smile to the bank after all.
One excellent source of energy is Biogas. This is produced when bacteria decompose organic material such as garbage and sewage, especially in the absence of oxygen. Biogas is a mixture of about 60 percent methane and 40 percent Carbon dioxide. Methane is the main component of natural gas. It is relatively clean burning, colorless, and odorless. This gas can be captured and burned for cooking and electrical supply. This is already being done on a large scale in some countries of the world. Farms that produce a lot of manure, such as hog and dairy farms, can use biogas generators to produce methane.
Biogas energy offers many advantages. Biogas-powered electricity plants can be built quickly, simply, and for much less money per kilowatt than coal, oil, or nuclear power plants. Unlike these other current energy sources, Biogas is a renewable resource. Methane is going to be produced by decomposition whether it is used or not. Biogas provides an excellent source of energy that is helpful to the environment. Finally, the residue from the burning of Biogas, called activated sludge, can be dried and used as fertilizer.
