Let me first introduce myself. My name is Frank Schaminee and I'm a consultant at Aeres Training Center International formerly PTC + in Barneveld the Netherlands. This saterday I will take part in an Impact mission on Poultry to Myanmar. Our goal is to educate the people in the Poultry and Feed sector from Myanmar.

We make this possible through cooperation with the governments, educational institutions, integrators, supply industry, but also the individuals. For this we have standard training courses but also tailor-made training courses. One of these trainings, for example is, "Access 2 Finance" a course that teaches the CEO or CFO to walk the correct road to obtain a financing by writing a business plan. for more information look on our website,


Kind regards Frank Schaminee

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.


Peter Meijer


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.</p>

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

Making money out of milk

This story is from SNV agriculture newsletter.

The Enhancing Dairy Growth in Ethiopia (EDGET) project, funded by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, is encouraging and supporting smallholder dairy farmers to enable them to exploit reliable business opportunities.

In many cases, lack of access to markets is disheartening dairy farmers, while wholesalers and retailers complain about shortage of quality milk products. SNV intervenes to bridge this gap by the establishment of decentralised rural dairy collection and processing centres. These centres will respond to market demands for quality milk products and will transform the smallholder subsistence farmers into solid entrepreneurial suppliers.  


SNV trains farmers on how to process milk in a more hygienic way

Recently, thirty dairy farmers in Kimbibit Woreda, Zengo kebele, established a cooperative with the aim of increasing their efficiency in milk collection and engage in processing butter and

Can farming in Ethiopia be successfully commercialised?

This is a short video from BBC news broadcasted 21 Nov 2014.

There may be a property and infrastructure boom in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa, but more than 70% of Ethiopians still live in rural areas - farming grain and livestock.

The government, with the help of international donors, is trying improve the country's farming sector, to boost production and put more farms onto a commercial footing - but there is still some way to go.

The BBC's Lerato Mbele reports from the Ethiopian town of Wonji, just south Addis Ababa, for Africa Business Report.  4m Video link:  http://www.bbc.com/news/business-30144473
