How do you raise a goose? Whether raising goose is meat or egg, there is a very big market in our country, but raising goose is not as simple as you think. In the breeding, we should according to the different growth stages of geese to reasonable adjustment of feeding and management methods. So what breeding techniques do geese need to master?
Goose breeding techniques
1.The construction of the Goose House. When raising goslings, the goslings should have good heat preservation performance, and the goslings should be dry in the goslings’ house, with ventilation outlet, air flow smoothly but no air leakage, and the ratio of window area to floor of the goslings’ house should be (1∶10)-(1∶15) , the house is 2 metres high. The floor of the House is 25-30 cm higher than that of the outside. The nursery bed is made of wood or plastic Mesh. The middle is separated by Wood or Silk Mesh into 3-5 square meters. The ground is made of cement or three-layer Earth, it is beneficial to wash and disinfect and prevent rodent attack. The House has built-in heating equipment, the surrounding environment is quiet. A sports ground was built in front of the nursery. The ground was flat and slightly inclined to the ditch to prevent water from accumulating in rainy days. There is a drain in the house. Put the sink on the drain so that the overflow water can flow into the drain. Furrow spread aluminum wire-mesh Wood, the house is divided into a number of small rooms, each area of 12 square meters, can accommodate 50 geese.
2.The goose nurtures its young.
1.drink water and eat. The goslings can drink and eat from 12 to 24 hours after hatching, and the drinking water should be 25 ° C or so cold boiled water with 0.05% sodium chloride and 0.1% glucose solution added to the water for goslings to drink freely. Just start to eat vegetables, vegetables, leaves cut into minced leaves and mixed with fine powder in the trough guide goslings, after 2 days to gradually increase the amount of fine feed.
2.temperature. Temperature is very important for goslings. 0-7 days old, the temperature in the shed was 28-30 ° C, and dropped 1 ° c every day until normal temperature. When the temperature is normal, the goslings are in groups of three to five, and they are active and silent, and their feces are brown or cyan-brown with white color.
3.density. Since Brood, the feeding density is usually 1-7 days old, 25-30 Birds/m2; 8-15 days old, 20-25 birds/m2; 16-25 days old, 15-20 birds/m2. At 1-10 days of age, 20-25 birds/m2; at 11-20 days of age, 15-20 birds/m2; at 21-30 days of age, 10-15 birds/m2.
4.humidity. Nursery to keep dry and clean, gosling Fear of air, indoor environment wet, to change bedding frequently, to clean the feces every day, to keep dry, humidity to maintain 60% -65% .
5.water and grazing. 5-7 day-old goslings can choose the time of fine day, no wind and high temperature, the water temperature is about 27 ° C, drive the goslings to the shallow water edge and let them go into the water freely, the time of going into the water gradually increases with the age. In the season of higher temperature, the goslings can graze at 1 week old, and in the season of lower temperature, the goslings can graze at 2 weeks old, when the temperature is not lower than 25 ° c, the goslings will be herded onto the grassland to graze, bask in the sun, and adapt to the environment after 20-30 days old, grazing 3-4 hours in the morning, 3-4 hours in the afternoon grazing, rest at noon in the shed, with sufficient water for free drinking.
6.Health and disease control. Clean the venue in a timely manner, including drinking water, sink, material trough and environmental hygiene of Goose House and Sports Ground, strictly control the entry of non-local personnel and vehicles, and disinfect the venue regularly. The disease mainly prevents goslings plague and coccidiosis. The immune procedure of gosling plague is to inject gosling plague high immune serum or gosling plague Yolk antibody 0.3 ~ 0.5 ml/feather at 1 ~ 3 days of age, Gosling Plague Vaccine 1 ml/feather at 7 ~ 10 days of age, Gosling Plague Vaccine 1 ml/feather at 21 days of age In rainy, wet season, high temperature, feed or drinking water to add anticoccidial drugs, even to 5 -7 days.
3.Feeding and management of adult geese. The age of 30-80 days is middle goose stage. Mainly to grazing, supplementary feed a little concentrate, concentrate accounts for about 10% of the diet. Grazing can be all day, but to observe the weather changes at any time to avoid storms hit. If the water source is available, the goose should be allowed to bathe and play freely in the water in order to stretch the skeleton, strengthen the physique and reduce the occurrence of diseases. After 81 days of age, geese for the late, the focus is fattening, all day
