Well, we Malaysian sure have something to be proud of in Swiftlet farming. I believe if all Swiftlet farmers understand this trade well in no time we would be the world's no: 1 Edible bird nests producer.
Nothing is impossible. Look at how we made in Oil Palm, Rubber, etc. In fact the Swiftlet farming is silently growing without noticing by many, even those that are in this industry.
We shouldn't look far abroad to have a foresight of fortress type of farms or sanctuary for farms and start "jaw dropping" . In fact in our own country there many farms of such already existed and many more are coming up. All these farms are producing good quality of nests in volume.
( Swiftlet Farm Santuary, all are from different owner, there are another few coming up at the back)
Most of these farms have the best micro environment that liked by birds from here the growth of nests and birds’ populations are tremendous. A double or triple fold is uncommon. But similarly there are still many in such area struggling for years to achieve the first 10 nests.
Nevertheless the number of nests in total for export shall increase as the number of farms increase. So Bravo to those who started the Farm Sanctuary!
