Do you want to know how to save money on duck food costs?

Everyone involved in duck farming these days knows that it is important to save money on duck feed costs to maximize any profits in return.

Duck food costs are becoming ever more expensive year on year.
The duck farmer has 5 options available:

1. Give up duck farming,
2. Save money on duck food by purchasing larger quantities to qualify for bulk order discounts,
3. Introduce a nutrient-rich free duck food that can be sourced nearby,
4. Grow your own free duck food that can be used to help supplement your shop bought duck food'
5. Try feeding your ducks 3 times a day by splitting the amount of feed.

Keeping your duck food regime constant is very important.
Egg laying ducks do not like a sudden change in their daily feed.

With this in mind, all changes to duck feed content & amounts should be implemented gradually over several weeks.

This will minimize any drops in egg production numbers.

Here on Porpeang Farm Thailand, we keep over 200 ducks (a mix of Khaki Campbells & Muscovys.)

There's no doubt that duck farming is a constant challenge keeping the feed costs down to a minimum. To gain just a 10% discount on a good quality duck food, we would have to purchase at least 350 25kg bags of feed.

For us, unless we were able to find or grow a free nutrient-rich source of duck food to supplement their diet, duck farming would not be a cost-effective venture for us to pursue.

That would be a shame because they are a great addition to our farm. They provide us with:

1. The best poultry manure you can find,
2. Free weed control,
3. Free bug control,
4. Fresh eggs,
5. Tasty meaty.
