Meat Ducks: Increased Time-to-Market Efficiency

At present, there are Beijing Duck and Cherry Valley Duck which are widely used in meat duck production. Under normal feeding and management conditions, meat ducks are raised from 6 weeks to 7 weeks of age, weighing about 3 kg, and can be listed when their feathers are almost uniform. The listing standards for domestic sales of ducks are slightly lower, and the requirements for meat ducks sold to Hong Kong and Macau markets are more stringent. The feathers of these duck wings should be fully elongated and their weight requirements should be more than 3.5 kg. Under the current market economy conditions, the price of meat ducks is often fluctuated to varying degrees according to market demand in different seasons and different time to market. When meat ducks meet the listing standards and the market price is higher than the production cost, timely listing can make the duck production profitable and achieve certain economic benefits. Otherwise, it will cause loss of meat duck production. In the case that a certain batch of ducks may be losing money, should meat ducks be listed on the market in time? The answer is yes. For one reason, the change in market price is not based on the will of the people. The meat duck farmers, of course, hope that the stagnant market can warm up quickly in order to increase production efficiency. But the market is ever-changing, and no one can expect the market to completely change in the short span of days as people expect. Once the market continues to slump, the losses to meat duck production will be even greater. Second, the meat duck is a living animal. After one day of raising, it will consume more of the day's feed, occupy more of a day's house, and spend more than one day's labor. Moreover, the feed conversion rate in the late period of the meat duck production has begun to decrease, and the feed conversion rate of meat ducks after the time of market introduction will be even lower. An additional day means more production costs for a day, and the losses caused by the end may be even greater. Economically speaking, it is even more uneconomical. Third, since the meat duck market is still in a stage of supply exceeding demand, the market has a bright future. Judging from the market changes over the years and the market experience of meat duck farmers, meat ducks are a long-term production process. Adhering to long-term and unremitting feeding is the only way to achieve success in duck production. Occasionally, once or twice the market downturn, production loss is not surprising, you go on perennially, a small number of losses will be replaced by the majority of profits, and ultimately obtain good economic benefits. Before each batch of meat ducks reaches the listing standard, they should start to understand the meat duck market information, such as the price of the near-far market, the quantity of demand, the mode of transportation, etc., in order to formulate the best plan for the sale of ducks, including the sales time and sales volume. , sales price (factory price at the time of capture at home and market price at the time of transportation to the market), transportation method, etc. When selling as much as possible to achieve the same age of meat ducks once caught on the market. Because batch and multiple capture will cause many strong stress to the duck population, it will cause the feed intake of the duck to decrease, weight loss, and affect the economic benefits of the duck. When ducks are slaughtered, duck traders and Other professionals are forbidden to enter and enter the duck houses, and should be captured and shipped by the local staff. Because those duck traffickers often come and go between duck farms, it is very likely that they will become communicators of some pathogens. Starting from the long-term production needs, these people must be strictly prohibited from entering the market to prevent them from bringing pathogens to the duck farm, which will bring hidden problems for future production. In addition, vehicles and tools used for transportation of ducks must be strictly cleaned and disinfected before entering duck farms and duck houses.
