Dr. Jeff Tomberlin on Black Soldier Flies

IMAG1722Your chickens on soldier flies. In just two weeks of feeding a diet supplemented by Black Soldier Flies, Robert Olivier of Compost Mania is able to increase the egg size by jaw dropping proportions. The egg on the far left is from the store, the egg in the middle was from before enriching the diet, and the egg on the right is now the common size from the flock.

Soldier flied may be the answer you are looking for in your poultry’s diet. Check out the full lecture by Professor Jeff Tomberlin of Texas A&M University given in Hilo Hawai’i on March 13th 2013.

 

Dr. Elaine Ingham speaking on Microbial Balance and Healthy Soils (Audio)

Dr. Elaine Ingham is a world renowned researcher advocating healthy soil as a function of biology and living soil as the key to fertility. Dr. Ingham gave a four hour presentation on her vacation to Hawai’i to the Natural Farming group to share the science of the soil discovered by the Rodale Institute. This treasure of information adds a tasty perspective to Master Cho’s divine implementation and strategic use of microorganisms.

Living soil = Health

Thanks Khadiga for encouraging Elaine to share.
