Poultry feed also to be Local food

North of Iwate area supporting poultry farming production of Japan.
The drying up of cereals is predicted on a global scale
in the near futureand is included big problems.
Northe of Iwate feed meeting use the experience of getting over an earthquake disaster
as the area that assumes poultry farming a key industry area and protects poultry
farming from a crisis to come and aims at the circulation-shaped poultry farming
administration in the area to produce safe chicken stably.

Community-building by
Lesson of the earthquake disaster

March 11, 2011 at 2:46 p.m.
The Great East Japan Earthquake is unforgettable affair in our area.

At the time, in the confusion of the unprecedented earthquake and the nuclear accident, we keep calm and we continued to keep the order in the high spirit of mutual assistance.
It was praised from all over the world.

In addition, consideration and to help each other "a feeling of solidarity" was achieved brilliantly the power saving of the summer after the earthquake.
While receiving the sorrow and wounds immeasurable. On the other hand, in none recognize the essence of the Japanese.

On the other hand, awareness of the horror and disaster prevention of natural disasters that is fading in some Japanese consciousness.

Five years after the disaster has passed, to re-examine the experience of the earthquake, talk it and will lead to voluntary action. We think it is one of the mission that people who live through now should do.

Stop of feed distribution by the tsunami, stopping of various transport function by road disruptions, cutoff the information by the power outage, and also stop the other infrastructure.

To keep poultry farming from these crises we collect information from the inside and outside the country and arrange necessary study and technique, and keep it alive for community improvement mainly composed of the poultry farming.

Therefore the maintenance of the local saucer is urgent business.
It is the feed meeting which we stand from such thought and feelings.

BACKGROUND

The production of the Chicken in Iwate Prefecture
is ranked at third in Japan.

Domestic chicken production area distribution (2013)

Document : Ministry of Agriculture,Forestry and Fisheries

Iwate Prefecture in the production volume of more than 100 million chikens, the domestic third place

Chicken shipment areas, meal bird processing
factories are concentrated to the Iwate north.

Chickens of Iwate MAP (2013)

  • The head office
  • Poultry processing factory
  • More than 5 million chickens shipment area
  • Less than 5 million chichens shipment area
  • Each area the number of chicken breeding farms

More than 5 million chickens shipment area and farms is concentrated to the north of Iwate.

The north of Iwate area occupies“42%”among chicken production in Iwate. (at 2014)

The demand for chicken has increased in Japan.

Trends of the domestic amount of production of livestock products (FY2000=100)

Document : Ministry of Agriculture,Forestry and Fisheries

Trends of the domestic amount of production of livestock products (FY2000=100)

The amount of production of the chicken is a tendency to increase
by a helth-oriented surge and domestic intention.

Merit of the poultry farming

The necessary feed charges are said to be beef 1 kg = feed10kg, pork 1 kg = feed 6 kg, chicken 1 kg = feed 2kg, for edible meat amount of production. From this fact, the chicken because it requires less feed Upon producing the same weight of meat of pig and beef,we can see that the cost performance is excellent

Quantity of breeding comparison necessary to produce edible meat of 1kg

Quantity of breeding comparison necessary to produce edible meat of 1kg

In quantity of the feed which is necessary on producing edible meat of 1 kg,
chicken has good cost-performance, feed with
quantity of 1/5 of the cow or quantity of 1/3 of the pig.

ISSUE

The height of the feed cost among
the poultry farming management

The ratios of feed among the poultry farming management are about more than 60%, and the change of the grain price greatly influences management directly.

Ratio of feed cost among the whole stock raising manager (%)

The reason that is high in poultry farming cost

A chicken is inferior the visceral function in comparison with "the mammals" such as a cow or a pig. In conformity to a chicken, cost is added in a perform processing (crush, drying, mixture) and becomes expensive.

The proportion of feed costs of livestock management occupied more than 60% and higher by the pig and poultry farming.
This has become a income reduction factors.

The price of poultry feed is influenced
by the international trend.

50% of raw materials of the feed for the poultry farming is made with corn. The corn takes the role that it is the protein source which is indispensable to growth, and is important to a chicken.However, the grain price soared at the stretch and is greatly influenced poultry farming management, because of the long-term drought that attacked the West Coast of America by the global climate change in 2013.

Document : Stock raising promotion section

The raw materials of the livestock feed are import goods in 74%.
The domestic feed price depends on the international trend.
price of raw materials
that included corn.

It is forecasted the price of poultry feed rises will continue to be high which
are caused by the growth of world population & grain consumption.

The world's population, the transition of a income and year-end stock ratio of grain

Population growth is predicted in future around Asia or India, Africa, the global demand for cereals is assumed. The cereals which are a certain limit resource influence the north of Iwate by such a background.

The world's population, the transition of a  income and year-end stock ratio of grain

Document : Ministry of Agriculture,Forestry and Fisheries

World population goes on increasing year after year, and the amount of production of cereals, the consumptions continue increasing, too.
But the situation that supply does not catch up with
progresses and the international price of cereals continues rising.

The problem that poultry farming feed holds

  1. The height of the feed cost among the poultry farming management.
  2. Feed of poultry farming depend on import, so amount of cereals production and a grain price influence it.
  3. World population growth, high price is predicted by the increase of cereals demand.

HOW RESOLVE?

Poultry feed self-support-ization
which paid attention to the algae

In order to break through the situation of the reliance upon others, to keep the food safety, and does not depend on a climate change, and the cereal price is autonomous, and area maintains the durability, and reduce a risk and cost.
We pay attention to "algae", and acheive feed self- support!

Benefits to take advantage of the algae

Stability of the feed price by the permanent stable production

Stability of the feed price by the permanent
stable production

It is possible to produce an alga using sunlight, water and carbon dioxide.It's to do the substitution with "corn" which is main feeding material, and is in stability of the feed price.

Less production area

Less production area

Is high efficiency than farm pro- ducts for low birthrate and aging, the serious depopulated present conditions in the local mountains including the population decline; can produce it, and there is not the competition with farm products.

Voluntary production in the area

Voluntary production
in the area

By culture in the region, and collateral to secure a major feed raw materials,dispel the status of dependent import dependence on the international mark.

VISION

Is future feed self-sufficiency through the use of algae has been realized?

Intangible

  • "Poultry","algae","energy cycle" in cooperation.
  • Produce chicken that utilizes algae, create a new specialty aims to branding.
  • It provides learn the poultry industry and science in the area, get to know the poultry.

Tangible

  • Construction of facilities for algae production of regional.
  • Building construction and feed distribution system of the manufacturing plant of feed utilizing algae.
  • Construction of research facilities from the production of using the algae to chicken processing.

HOW JOIN?

Oneself had an interest, but what can oneself do?In the activities of the self-support-ization of the poultry feed, you can join us in various forms.
Thank you for your cooperation.
