Duck Rearing Demonstration

Meat and egg of duck is one of the important sources of animal protein in our country. Many small and poor farmers are involved in duck rearing with both local and exotic breed. Though the rivers, haors, baors, cannels, ponds in the rural areas are very suitable for duck rearing but duck farmers don’t get optimum production from duck due to limited knowledge on improved rearing practices of duck. During the current fiscal year 2010-11, 01 duck rearing demonstration in 01 upazila was established at CIG level. Introduction of exotic breed, housing & feeding management, vaccination etc were included in the demonstrations’ activities. The result of demonstration could not be shown in this report because the demonstration was established at the end of this year.
