There are so many blogs, books, seminars and so on around why those who DIY their own farm or engaged consultants to do for them still make many mistakes and can’t even get the basic micro right.
There must be something wrong somewhere. Last week there were many consultants on leave you could see that on their web site, practically attending seminar for couple of days in neighboring country. I was wondering if they still have to attend seminars then how much do known about Swiftlet farming.
Perhaps there are still many things they need to learn. Therefore if they still in the learning process stage then would they build a good farm for you? That is questionable…you don’t need to have a high IQ to figure that out.
Yes indeed everybody is learning everyday but not after attending a seminar abroad and instantly giving consultancy. They must have the basic at least. They must also own several successful farms and able to understand the practical of Swiftlet farming. The best is having visited many failed farms this would give opportunity to understand the reasons why and how a failed farm is being built so they would be very careful when it comes to designing farms.
A successful farm cannot be copied. It is not like in production of products where every single product produced would be the same or at least compatible. We could learn what is in or what constitutes a successful farm but we cannot copy as it is in manufacturing production.
Every farms has it uniqueness understand its advantages and disadvantages and making use of what could help in making Swiftlets stay and make nests is most important
There is no magic in Swiftlet farming everything is factual and practical. Everything can be seen and can be felt. All one needs is to have reasonable intelligent to understand what causes the advantages and disadvantages. Understanding the Swiftlet behavior and getting the basic right would reduce your failing rate to as much as 80%.
Other than that it solely relies on the location and the surroundings of the area. The food chain, the vegetation, geographical (rock mountains, swaps, etc), industrializes activities (that affect the birds), and so on.
But most of the time seeing and knowing is easy doing it and making it is another thing. I bet most have known that the farm’s temperature should not exceed 31C at least but 8 out of 10 farms fail to follow this…why? If you ask them, 9 out of 10 knew this very well but why are they still doing it?
Isn’t there are lots of books, seminars, consultants and so on around. Some even have stacks of Swiftlet farming books you name it they have it from all authors of Malaysia and Indonesia. They could practically memorize every sentence in every book. Some even have attended seminar, the same seminar again and again. Yet when I was asked to visit their farms, I could see 9 out of the 10 basic micros are out of the acceptable level.
So whose fault is it? Whose problem is it?
Well if you cannot even figure out whose fault then Swiftlet farming is definitely not your cup of tea.
Good Swiftlet Farming All! The Best is To Share!
