No smell pigs are hot topics right now. Imagine raising hogs with no cleaning, no smell, no flies, no vaccines and no antibiotics! I went to Korea in 2017 to attend KNF Advanced Swine Training for 5 days in Gokseong County to learn the secrets of this biological technology.
This course has a lot of classroom sessions to understand the Korean Natural Farming philosophy, principles and solutions for raising hogs. To spread this vital information to the world I videoed the entire trip and publishing it here to remain open source.
The last of the videos in this playlist contain the information about the pig nutritional cycle. Cho talks about how and when to feed sows to support them for optimal natural growth. If you want your sows to have many pigs and be able to provide nutritious milk, check these out for sure.
No smell, no flies, no cleaning, no problems pig pens, a.k.a. Inoculated Deep Litter Systems, were the topic of the May 2015 Natural Farming Hawai’i meeting and potluck. For over 5 years over a dozen operations have proven why this is the NRCS best practice for swine waste management plans, because there’s nothing to clean up! All the waste is digested right on the living floor reducing labor and eliminating the need for water.
Your 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.
Master Cho told a story of an old Japanese woman giving him this recipe for “All the terrible things the Japanese have done to the Korean people”, and perhaps it has enough mystical power to mend all that hardship. Make some and find out for your self.
Cook a dozen egg yolk on medium heat.
When they are golden brown and “ready to eat”, turn up the heat to high.
Break egg into small particles.
Continue heating until oil releases, press oil from egg and remove from heat.
Store oil in a jar in the medicine cabinet.
Takes 20~30 minutes of high heat until oil releases. Make sure to have plenty of ventilation.
It’s been known to sprout cooked beans if used properly.
Robert Olivier, founder of CompostMania.com, gave two presentations at the Natural Farming Hawai’i Monthly Meeting for October. We video recorded both sessions so you can share this valuable information with friends and farmily. You can find out more about Robert on facebook.com/composting and twitter.com/composting
The basic idea is that Black Soldier Flies (BSF) can make up to 1/3 of an animals feed. This is huge in Hawai’i because we can grow the other 2/3 very easily with Natural Farming Methods. Also, we no longer have to bury food waste in the landfill with Robert’s BioPod Technology. Slaughterhouse waste and other agricultural waste streams can be turned directly into nutritious insect protein.
Robert eases the County problem of waste, turns trash into cash for commercial operations, and even has a home sized unit to feed a clutch of chickens in the backyard. Check out both videos and let the grubs go to work for you.

Thanks for the full house plus more. Go Hawai’i Ag!
What a blast it was! Over 50 people attended Master Cho’s Cho Global Natural Farming Certification Course held July 12-16th in Makapala Kohala Hawai’i.
Master Cho’s revolutionary techniques are so effective that large chemical companies have threatened his life. Why? Because with Cho Global Natural Farming anybody can grow food without buying any fertilizers or pesticides.
Cho teaches farming in harmony with Nature. Start with a soil foundation made with micro organisms and other edible high quality ingredients that can be easily manufactured on the farm. Then as the plant grows, know what nutrients to give, again, all made right on the farm. Certain sprays are applied when the plant is fruiting and another when you want vigorous growth.
Fifty certified Cho Global Natural Farming are now able to verify precisely what Cho teaches to achieve amazing results. A group of teachers, researchers, farmers from all over the Island Chain as well as Los Angeles came together to participate in the first Natural Farming Certification in the Western Hemisphere. Natural Farming is the starting point of an anonymous revolution to transform the food supply back into the hands of the people.
Cho’s message is love. Love your plants, love your inputs, love your wife, and choose life. Nature will build one inch of living a soil every two hundred years if left to it’s own merit, and with Cho Global Natural Farming, a diligent human can complete the same process in six months. When cooperating with Nature, a farmer can build soil four hundred times faster leaving lasting fertility and resulting in abundant harvests at minimal costs and reduced labor. Natural Farming is the love Cho is talking about.
