Evaluation of production model of organic livestock (goose)
The organic products including broken rice and soybean plant, and soybean were used in this study for organic geese production. White Roman geese were randomly divided into both control and organic groups with same environment. The result showed that the body weight (BW) and BW gain of the control group had better performance (P<0.05) at 4 weeks of age, because control group had higher crude protein diet (20 vs. 18%). But the performance of both groups had no significant difference (P>0.05) at 12 weeks of age, the period from 5 to 12 weeks of age was giving same nutrition level diets. The feed and productive costs were calculated, the cost of organic feed was 3.0-3.6 times higher than non-organic feed. The cost of body weight gain on organic group was 3.2 times higher than non-organic group.
