Dans deux semaines, nous allons lancer le Feed Calculator, une application innovante pour les volailles afin d'optimiser leurs propres recettes d'alimentation et donc réduire considérablement leurs coûts d'alimentation. L'application sera gratuite pour les agriculteurs <1000 poulets.

Voir cette animation pour une brève explication. https://youtu.be/v48kFG62S0k

Mes questions sont les suivantes:

- Est-il commun en Tanzanie de faire votre propre alimentation de volaille?

- Existe-t-il des magasins où vous pouvez acheter différents ingrédients d'aliments pour volailles (par exemple, farine de soja, farine de poisson, son de riz, prémélange, DL-méthionine, etc.)

En attendant si quelqu'un peut répondre à ces questions.

In two weeks time we will launch the Feed Calculator, an innovative app for poultry farmers to optimize their own feed recipes and therefore reduce their feed cost dramatically. The app will be for free for farmers with <1000 birds.

Just see this animation for a short explanation. https://youtu.be/v48kFG62S0k

My questions are:

- Is it common in Tanzania to make your own poultry feed?

- Are there shops where you can buy different poultry feed ingredients at once (eg. soya bean meal, fish meal, rice bran, premix, DL-methionine etc.)

Looking forward if somebody can answer these questions.

Dalam waktu 2 minggu, kami akan meluncurkan Feed Calculator, sebuah apps untuk peternak ayam agar bisa mengoptimalisasikan resep pakan yang dibuat sendiri, sehingga pengeluaran untuk pakan bisa menurun signifikan. Aplikasi ini gratis untuk peternak yang memiliki <1000 unggas.</p>

Berikut penjelasan singkat aplikasi dalam animasi https://youtu.be/v48kFG62S0k

Pertanyaan saya adalah:

- Apakah umum di Indonesia peternak membuat pakan sendiri?

- Apakah ada toko bahan pakan dimana peternak dapat membeli bahan pakan yang berbeda sekaligus (misalnya bungkil kedelai, tepung ikan, dedak/bekatul, premix, DL-methionin, dll)?

Saya nantikan jawaban Anda.

Salam,

Alexander Saba Good morning Sorry just reply, we are now still in incubation by kinara Indonesia (fund from investing in woman & Australian embassy) for Vet-Herb product development in Manhattan Hotel Kuningan, Jakarta It is uncommon in Indonesia chicken farmers to mix their own food, usually already in the form of pellets from the factory. Many poultry shop shops selling corn, bran, and soybeans separately. People in west java & central java call poultry shop as “PS”. In Bandung one of the biggest Sukses PS on the road rajawali bandung (next to the gas station) is quite complete selling corn, soybeans, bran apart Yes it has been watched animation feed calculator very good J   NB :  Poultry breeders in Indonesia breed average chicken above 1000 ekor.

Gizaw Legesse Dear Peter Meijer, As far as I know there is little or no trend in making poultry feed by the farmers in Ethiopia. I also think there are no shops who sale all ingredients together - that could be one of the reasons that farmers do not make their own feed, but not knowing the chemistry is also the major challenge. There are only few feed producers who are also somehow located in one place, Bishoftu - some 50KMs from Addis. I saw the video and the feed calculator App is really great. If you didn't yet, however, I suggest you make contact with some people who are working in the sector to give them the chance to review the App in Ethiopian context. You can contact Ethiopian Netherlands Trade for Agricultural Growth (ENTAG) who runs the poultry platform in Ethiopia:  https://entag.org  ----- And another suggestion is to make the video translated to Amharic. (I will share your post on AgriProFocus Facebook page.) Good luck on the launching!!
