Duck Farming -
Importance of Keeping Farm Records If You Want a Profitable Duck
It is worth keeping a record of what happens when
you begin your journey on
duck farming. Not every one finds keeping records easy or useful. It seems a
hassle, but it is fun. Normally for a short term and for a small flock you can
remember the most important information. But if you are planning to
for a longer time and if you want to make a business you need to keep track of
Depending on your type of business you can keep track of:
- how many eggs are laid every day
- how much food you give every day
- the costs you make on feeding and health care
- the investment you have made to build a shed
- which ducks are good breeders and which are not
- how many eggs you incubate and the date you have put them to incubate
- how many eggs hatch
- how many of the hatched ducklings survive and how many die
This is not a complete list, neither a compulsory list. You decide yourself of
which information you keep a record, depending on the type of your business.
The information you gather can help you to make management decisions or help you
to find a solution to a problem. For example:
- When you know when you put eggs to incubate, you can calculate the date that
they will hatch. You can then prepare for caring for the ducklings in time..
- You can estimate when you will need to replace ducks as they reach the end of
their productive period.
