GET LEAD OF ANTIBIOTICS BY MIX MEDICINAL PLANTS AND GRASSES IN DRINKING WATER OF YOUR BIRDS

IMG_20180608_112356IMG_20180608_104519Avoid as much as possible to use antibiotics when raising birds organically. Antibiotics get deposited into the birds’ bodies and when you feed on such a bird, you are likely to develop complications such as cancer, etc.

We always crash leaves of medicinal plants and grasses and mix it in the water we serve our birds. This boosts the immunity of our birds and help them always to stay health and free from disease.

Look at the photo slideshow and see how we do it.

VENUE: Conference Room D; United Nations Headquarters in New York;

SIDE EVENT ORGANIZER: Kikandwa Rural Communities Development Organization (KIRUCODO)

MAIN SIDE EVEN SPONSORS: Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN) and Women Thrive


Session Abstract:

The Global Nutrition Report 2017 calls for nutrition to be placed at the heart of efforts to end poverty, fight diseases, raise educational standards and tackle climate change.

According to Akinwumi Adesina President of African Development Bank,  Africa’s economic progress is being undermined by hunger, malnutrition and stunting, which cost at least US$25 billion annually in sub-Saharan Africa, and leave a lasting legacy of loss, pain and ruined potential. Stunted children today lead to stunted economies tomorrow.

Over 75% of the population in Sub-Sahara Africa depends on Agriculture as main source of income and daily food supply. However, with the growing population, land for agriculture is becoming minimal and demand for food is rapidly increasing every now and then. Making Agriculture and Nutrition data open, as well as building capacities of smallholder farmers in Profitable and Sustainable Small-Scale Agribusiness ventures (PS3AgriVents) is key in eradicating poverty and improving nutrition at household level. Further, Investing in gender equality and women empowerment can unlock human potential on a transformational scale because according to the World Bank Women account for one-half of the potential human capital in any economy and they make up 40 percent of the agriculture labor force.

During the session, experiences will be shared about such PS3AgriVents which have been tested and currently changing lives in poor rural households in Uganda. Further, strategies will be discussed in connection to benefits of making Agriculture and Nutrition Data Open, market access, appropriates technologies, gender equality in relation to property ownership, access to startup capital, and value addition of agricultural produces before put on market.

Keeping Kuroiler Chicken to raise money for building homes for members of Uganda Housing Cooperative Union

blogThis week, we started to develop a Sustainable profitable Kuroiler Chicken keeping business plan for five Housing Cooperative Societies under UHOCHU namely: Kabizi-Wankwale, Kidokolo-Twezimbe, Nnongo, Nkokonjeru-Caritas and Polysack housing cooperatives. Members of the five societies were trained early this month in Kuroiler keeping and Management and today they consider Kuroiler keeping as a business to engage into as a group to save and build individual homes on their recently purchased land. Society members are grouped into a group of 5 families each and given a startup kit of 60 kuroiler chicks, materials and startup feeds each.

Bluebonnet Kuroiler Keeping Project Model under replication by a number of Organizations and Individuals

1Good Job. Five months ago, Kisowera Community Needs Uganda members were trained in Kuroiler Keeping and Management. They have 30 hens and 3 cocks and today they have been able to bring 90 eggs for hatching into chicks. They plan to bring 90 eggs every week for hatching. From 30 hens, they are able to get at least 15 eggs every day which makes it 105 eggs every 7 days. From 90 eggs, they are able to get atleast 70 chicks every week. In a month they are able to get atleast 280 chicks which makes it atleast 3360 chicks every year. Remember, we are considering the least number of eggs but 30 hens can still lay 26 or 20 eggs a day.
