(BGO)- Bac Giang University of Agriculture and Forestry (BAFU) has collaborated with the provincial Encouragement Center and Center for Farming Technical Service of Tan Yen district o review and evaluate the Luong Phuong hybrid bantam farming model in Tan Yen district.
Luong Phuong hybrid bantam farming model has been implemented since August 2020 in 6 households in Cao Thuong township at the scale of 2,400 chicks. The households participating in this model will be supported with 70 percent of the breeds’ price, animal feed, vaccines, medicine and disinfectants.
During implementation, BAFU’s teachers and technical staffs of Tan Yen district have regularly supervised and guided the households to follow bio-safety breeding process. According to the evaluation, after 5 months, the chickens have reached high survival rate with good resistance. The average weight of hens ranges from 2 to 2.2 kilos while cocks reach 2.6 to 2.8 kilos. This model yields higher economic efficiency by 10 to 15 percent compared to the traditional breeding method.
“In line with the support with 70 percent of the breeds’ price and 70 percent of the animal feed including bran, vaccines and disinfectants, we vaccinated the chickens following the procedures as being trained. Compared to other breeds of chicken, Luong Phuong hybrid bantam grows faster with good resistance, firm flesh and good taste”, said Pham Thi Manh in Hoa Son residential group, one of the 6 households participating in Luong Phuong hybrid bantam farming model.
Currently, Bac Giang has a total flock of 18 million chickens, among the provinces with biggest chicken flock nationwide.
