“James, I have a farm in T.Malim. It has been 2 years now. How come it has less than 12 nests?”
.“Well you should ask the person who build the farm for you. I have not seen your farm I can’t tell much.”
.“James he is a professional and an expert from the Pahang . He had built hundreds of farms but how come mine is like this?”
.“I replied there are no such thing call professional or an expert to me. The only difference is can one make a good successful farm or otherwise.” If one cannot built a good farm whatever names they may be called then it’s useless.”
.This is what I encountered when meeting Mr. K from T.Malim. The renovation of his farm 2 years ago cost more than Rm 50k. He is complaining now that his investment is gone.
.I repeatedly told him don’t worry you are not the only one there are thousands out there shared the same faith.
.After listened to this I think he feels a little comfortable..
.But Mr.K keeps telling me that his farm’s internal condition is within acceptable level and he had controlled it well. (I told myself wait till I visit the farm then it will be a different story).
.He told me he had met with many professionals and had attended some courses .He knows the importance of Temp, humidity, Aroma, sound, etc. It shouldn’t be the problem of these internal factors furthermore his farm was built by a professional (consultant).
.I replied many people knew these basic requirements of farm like temp: 27-30C, Rh: 75-90%, sound: int & Ext, etc now it has become common knowledge. In fact most farms had achieved this but it is beyond this that the birds are looking for.
.I prompted him, when the so called expert or professional told you about the simple knowledge of farm’s temp must be at 27-30C did they ever told you how to achieved it or how to get to this perimeter?
.Mr.K replied no never, they just said your farm temp must at 27-30C that all. Ha..ha..ha.. I laughed.
.I told him “I am sure they never tell you or teach you the specific details about all the micro factors and how to achieve them to a level that liked by birds and how to manipulate it to your control to create a good internal environment that once new Swiftlets visited your farm they will make it their homes. Perhaps they themselves may not know it at all, so how to teach you?” So just ask you to change your Cd sound and buy a new sound.
.There are many things beyond the basic that 80% farmers are unaware of when it comes to Swiftlet farming that is why some farms could have 340 nests after 10 months of operation while many only have less than 20 nests after couple of years.
/Farm’s condition changes over time, every month the weather is different, every weeks there are new farms coming up all these create an impact to your farm. Be ready to change and note the changes.
/But before that make sure you know, what successful farming is.
/After a lengthy conversation I was asked to view his farm and rectify the problems but I told him not these few weeks perhaps next month as I’m tight- up with few appointment of revamping and construction of new farm.
/Good Farming all!
我回復了「專家不專家是另外一囘事。 唯一的區別是能做一個好成功的燕屋農場」。 如果一個不能修造好燕屋農場的，称它他們任何名字也是無用的」。
這是我遇到從T.Malim的K先生。 他的燕屋農場整修了2年，費用差不多是RM 50k。他抱怨他的投資完蛋了。
我回復了，許多人知道燕屋農場的這些基本要求，像溫度是要： 27-30C，濕度是要： 75-90%，聲音： 内部 & 外部等等這些現有的常识。 实际上，多数燕屋農場達到了這些，但是燕子是在尋找此外的。
K先生回復沒有，他們只是說您的燕屋農場溫度必須在27-30C。 哈，哈，哈。 我笑了。
我告訴了他「我肯定他們從未告诉您或教您關於所有屋內環境的因素，具體細節和如何達到燕子喜歡的水平，和怎样操作它控制創造，當燕子到您的燕屋農場的第一次， 燕子參觀您的燕屋農場，燕子將當它們的家的一個好的屋內環境。 或許他們自己可能不知道，因此如何教您呢？」 那么只會要求您改變您CD的聲音和買新的聲音。
