ANIMAL FARMING RESEARCH PROJECTS
Chicken Farming Research Projects
A research project on raising chemical-free chicken with no form of animal or fish remains added to their feeding was undertaken by Prof. Dr. Ahmed Hussein of Ain Shams University, Egypt. It was published in ‘Masharef’ a specialized agriculture and animal farming magazine in Egypt. BioGeometry was used in the form of colour placement only, in order to compare the different techniques available, each separately, before deciding on the most effective combination. The chicks weigh an average of one and a half kilograms in 45 days, according to international standards of that breed. In Egypt however the standard is about one and a quarter kilogram only due to the different climate.
A small control group was used for comparison. All forms of chemicals such as antibiotics, vaccination, tranquilizers, and hormones were omitted. After 35 days, the chicken on which BioGeometry was used had already reached the average weight of 1.500 kg. A period 9 days in time and overhead expenses was gained. Another benefit was the 10% gain calculated in the feed to weight gain conversion ratio. At 45 days the average was at 1.850 Kg. The most important thing however, is ta healthier product for the consumer and a lower cost for the farmer.
In 2013, BioGeometry began a collaboration with Nutrinor (Quebec, Canada) to provide a solution to raise chickens without antibiotics and vaccinations. Prior to the BioGeometry Solution it was not possible to raise chickens on a commercial scale in the area for more than 3 cycles. BioGeometry entered a one year research phase with Nutrinor before singing a commerical contract with them in 2014 to raise chickens without anitbiotics and anticoccidials.
The Cow Hoof Disease Research Project
In a seminar in Holland, the ‘Dutch BioGeometry Group’ presented several research projects. The farmers were present to report their experiences and results with the BioGeometry Energy Balancing CD . As an example, one farmer reported that through the use of the EBCD, in a private animal farming research project in Holland in which 90% of the cows had hoof disease, most of the cows were cured within a month. When the EBCD was removed the disease returned. The EBCD was placed again and the results returned.
We also reviewed the apple research and potato research projects done by the late Prof. Peter Mols at the university of Wageningen, which were presented by his son Jorn in a video film.
