Emu Farm

This is my first blog.

I have just setup a Emu Farm near Trichy, Tamil Nadu. The farm has a 360-egg capacity, with expansions plans to increase it to 1000-egg capacity.

The blog has been started just to share my experience in Emu Farming. Currently, people are cashing on in their experience, minting money. I couldn't tolerate once an Emu Farmer has charged me Rs.50/- for visiting his farm.

Look for my next post, where I can start sharing my experience in Emu Farming.

Regards,
JM

I have just started a platform for emu farming. You can share your experiences at http://www.eemufarming.com .

I actually agree that a farmer should charge somebody to visit his farm, after all he is imparting knowledge and time to the visitor. It also helps quality a visitor as only visitors really interested in emu farming will then visit.

Hi,

I have just plan to start the emu forming but some confutation, regarding how to start to project.

Can you clarify the below point it will be helpful for me

1. What is the cost of emu feed in year?
2. Effect of any infection during weather change or feed change.

If you have any experience please share with me.

Vishwajeet,

Refer to this post:
http://emufarming-guide.blogspot.com/2010/04/lets-look-into-10-points-mentioned-in.html

4. The feed cost is around Rs.3,000/- per year for a bird. Farmer who sold the birds will provide regularly the "specially & custom-made" feed to you.

Feed cost is not fixed at all, of course, it depends on the agricultural produce, which are highly weather-dependent. For a small farmer, who owns a 10-pair farm, cannot prepare his own feed, unless he does it full-time and has other agricultural activities. If he decides to prepare the feed himself, (feed formula is available), the feed cost would be around Rs.12/- per Kg. The additional efforts which he put to make this feed is not costed into. Alternatively, you can buy it from Feed Manufacturers like SKM, at a cost of Rs.17.50/- Kg. Just imagine, you will save 5.50/Kg. If you have 10 pairs, your per day savings will be Rs.55/- a day. Per month, it would be around Rs.1,650/-. So, if you are the owner and you are going to prepare this feed for your 10 pair farm, it is wiser. If you are going to engage someone for the same farm & feed, it is not wiser. Clear...??? When your farm is enlarged enough, you can engage your own men to do that. The owner supplying the feed is most of the times ends up in trouble. Some, unable to match the varying cost of feed, failed to add some important additives, or changing to a cheaper alternative. The feed quality is affected. But, if you are buying from a Branded manufacturer, you can ensure this.

Roughly, a adult bird will eat around 900kg to 1Kg in normal days. During laying season, it will eat around 650-800grams. per day per bird.

It is for sure, in US, Canada emu farming had been there like we are seeing now.

This is one article which brings some surprises about the emu industry in western countries.

I hope we will learn lessons from them and successful in creating the "Emu Industry".

I am crossing fingers and closely watching how our Emu industry evolves.
