Sustainable poultry farming in USA, project report, requirements, and outcomes of sustainability

It is not common on present poultry farms to make poultry farms sustainable. At ground level, most poultry farmers ignore the scope of poultry farming because of the success of the poultry business. 

Surprisingly, there are less than 1% poultry farms that are highly sustainable.

Sustainable poultry farming in USA

Some experts criticize sustainable farming as they said that it is not applicable everywhere. Either we can agree with them or we can oppose them. But practically we try to find ways to make things closer to sustainability(even in the least chances of sustainability). 

People expect sustainability a complex process. In reality, it is not complex but a bit more time-consuming.

Let's understand the sustainability of poultry farming.

Is it possible to make poultry farming sustainable in USA?

Well, we can make 75% to 90% of poultry farms sustainable. It is because we need vaccines for chickens, poultry farming sheds, and poultry farming tools to manage the other works of poultry farm. 

Sustainable poultry farming

For the rest of the requirements, we can make poultry farming sustainable like for feed, water, electricity, etc. 

We can use solar energy, rainwater harvesting, and organic compost(made of chicken shit). 

Let's understand how things work in a sustainable poultry farm.

Working principle of sustainable poultry farming

A sustainable poultry farm is a practice to reduce the dependency on market arrangements to the available natural resources like solar energy, rainwater harvesting, and chicken feed in a sustainable manner.
Sustainable poultry farming is a good example of the natural cycle adaptation with a business. 
For example, we feed chickens, they leave chicken manure. We make organic compost from it and use it to grow feed for chickens or humans. Thus things return in the same cycle from where they started.

It is better to get proper training regarding the health stages of chicken, vaccines, feed, drinking water, and temperature management in various climate conditions. 

Requirements to make poultry farming sustainable

Let's start with the requirements to make a poultry farm sustainable

A poultry farm setup

We have discussed before that how to make a poultry farm. You have to finish the work of shed designing and leave space for further adjustments like solar plates, rainwater harvesting system, and compost-making chambers. 

You have to remember the measurements according to your business model. For example, to make a poultry farm for 1000 chickens, you can use either cage system or cage free poultry farming. In cage free poultry farming, it is easy to collect chicken manure and in cage poultry farm it is easy to maintain hygeine.

Solar energy plates

For the poultry farm electricity, you need solar energy plates. These plates help in the light to maintain inside temperature, to run fans, motors, etc. 

You can either rely on manual electricity or you can use electric inverters that charge from solar lights to use in night. LED lights are better, long-lasting, and low-energy consumers. So either replace them with high-power bulbs or fix them from starting. 

Rainwater harvesting system

The rainwater harvesting system helps to collect water. We can use this water for multiple purposes. 

On a poultry farm, you need to connect it with the sloppy roof. You need to make underground chambers for it. We already discussed the rainwater harvesting system for sloppy roofs.

Compost making chambers 

To make compost from chicken manure, we need a proper and clean area(separate from the poultry farm). Collect the chicken manure there. It is better to use a manual collection of chicken manure.

Well, connecting drainage directly with the collecting chamber may reduce the fertility of chicken manure. A chicken produce 30 to 40 grams of chicken manure daily. So in a farm of 1000 chickens, you will collect 30 to 40 kg of chicken manure. Monthly you will collect 9 quintals to 1 ton of chicken manure to make compost.

Repeat the same process of making organic compost from chicken manure and use that direct in your agricultural crops. 

Outcomes from sustainable poultry farming(USA)

Following are some of the sustainable poultry farming-

  • Adding sustainability to poultry farming increases the dimension of profit and reduces the monthly cost. 
  • Sustainable poultry farming reduces the bad impact of regular poultry farming on the environment.
  • Sustainable poultry farming is applicable anywhere in any climate conditions but you need proper knowledge and training. 
  • Sustainability decrease the mortality rate among chickens in poultry farming. 
  • Sustainable poultry farming is indeed good but it cost extra money at the time of the establishment of a sustainable farm.
  • In sustainable poultry farming, we make highly organic chicken manure compost for the entire year. It is highly productive and increases natural fertility in the soil.
