Local feed resources for pig poultry and fish production in Papua New Guinea

 

ACIAR has funded a number of projects in PNG that have focused on developing improved and lower cost feeding systems for smallholder semi-commercial and commercial poultry, pig and pond fish production that maximise the use of local feed ingredients. This research has led to, among other things, the development of concentrates for blending with local feed ingredients for broilers, layers, pigs and tilapia; adapting the ensiling technique to make sweetpotato and cassava silage to feed pigs; and the introduction of mini feed mills to enhance feed processing and manufacturing.

This monograph provides details of this research and its outcomes.
