Farm for growing snails
Breeding snails - a new direction, "livestock" in Europe and one of the options for small businesses. See the release notes, it is grown as a "horned treats" on special farms.
It is believed that the snail vine is spreading across Europe from Italy. In central Russia, they do not live, but are often found in the Baltic, Kaliningrad region and on the southern outskirts of the country. They love moist warm climate: old gardens, overgrown shrubs ravines. There they were, and collect garbage, sending large amounts of fresh or frozen to supermarkets and restaurants of the developed European countries. The demand is great, and growing constantly. This horny and incredibly slippery delicacy prized meat, do not contain cholesterol and harmful fats. Consisting of a net efficiency of protein, essential amino acids for humans and the masses of various vitamins. Oh, and it increases the potency.
Also popular in the world of marine mollusks, France, and very fond of cuhoputnyh - snails (Helix pomatia). Soft-bodied delicacy called beautiful word "escargot» (escargot) and sold in any supermarket. Fishing (hunting? Fee? Fishing?) Wild snails in France, becoming increasingly difficult due to the destruction of natural habitats, and therefore can not satisfy the appetites of the nation's foodies. Part of the food problem is solved by imports. But the patriotic French prefer domestic products, they sincerely believe that all the French - the best in the world. So the only solution - to breed in captivity.
Moist marine air Brittany is perfect for this land snail. In Le Croisic is one of the many French snail farms. The farm is called "teacher", because there is regular guided tours, which is unexpected for a zoologist look at Helix pomatia. A typical phrase guide near the poster depicting the anatomy of the cochlea: "... At the end of the shell is placed liver. If this body is not removed, the taste of snails will be spoiled. "
Snail farms were organized when reduced, or completely vanished, and the area of abandoned gardens and ravines, where in some European countries have banned collecting snails, taking them under protection.
Beautiful, light - brown, with dark stripes and is almost completely twisted shell, large, nearly 5 cm in length and in height (which is why they were called in Russia, great of). Some people even have them home as pets, however ridiculous it may sound.
It starts with the cultivation of snail breeding. Snail-producers give a special diet rich in carrots. We wonder that each individual snail has male and female sex organs (although in terms of the snails, probably male and female - inferior beings ...). Snails are planted in pairs, and they fertilize each other. Because the snails lay their eggs in the ground after mating producers put on a special small pots to the ground. Then the precious contents of the pots are placed in an incubator.
Newborns snails live in a mini-terrariums and grown relocated to an enclosure with mesh walls, on boards, which moves into the special boxes in the desk. The food is "young" with a carrot cereal. Snails on a farm reaches gastronomic size (as plum) in a few months, "wild" snails in nature, it takes a year and a half. Here, on a farm, in a special laboratory that is certified sanitary and veterinary inspections, carried out processing of cooking snails.
First, they are placed for five minutes in boiling water, then extracted from the shells, remove the liver, saute, boil in a special broth, put back into the sink and pour a specific traditional green sauce with parsley and garlic. An elderly Frenchman once said to me: "snails themselves - just meat, but the sauce for them - is something special."
Tour ends in the farm shop and restaurant, where both should be "heated" foodies can finally taste the different dishes and delicacies to buy for the future spiral. Snails are a traditional sauce, snails in the "cups" of the test, instead of the shell, kassule (cassoulet) of the snails with mushrooms in tomato sauce, cake mix for fans of cooking - unflavored boiled snails in cans, floor setera.
Breeding snails in artificial "hothouse" conditions is also a guarantee that the meat that is sold will be free of various contaminants: heavy metals, pesticides, and other. Snails reproduce well. Only they need space. Normal conditions for life are created when a 40-50 snails (that is about a kilogram) live in one square meter.
In the offspring of snails, each individual brings. Once a year, in spring, they lay their eggs at 40-60. Posterity is growing quite rapidly and in vitro gaining marketable weight in about half of the year (in the loop "Spring - Fall - Spring"). "Commodity" is the weight of 20-25 grams and a size of about 5 cm Even if part of the next generation will not survive anyway, each snail brings in a designated period of up to 1 kg of litter. And consumed per 1 kg 2 kg of food delicacy. Thus, from 100 kg of snails can get a few tons of litter. Why not business?
By the way, 1 kg of edible snail is 3 euros, and the garden - 5 euros.
Time is now actively engaged in cultivation of these shellfish were ubiquitous Chinese. Patience and perseverance they can not borrow. And it is, I must admit, though advantageous, but not easy. Snail business itself does not require large financial investments, but without the professionalism and experience here, certainly, can not do.
Without going into the writing business - plan and cost estimates, it should be noted that the cost of organizing things will be: training costs, costs for the purchase of (or collection) of the initial batch of snails, to guard the farm, on the cages and feed. They love strawberry leaves, horse sorrel, burdock, cabbage, and, of course, grape leaves, for which it got its name.
In the area just polsotki can get useful meat, exactly, is greater than that of a bull. And its price is 10 times higher beef prices.
As the German monks were grown snails in cabbage beds can be put inside the cage artichokes or what - the crops. Mild climate (about 21 degrees) and humidity of 75 - 95% - an indispensable condition for breeding shellfish. Helix - a nocturnal animal. During the day she sleeps. Just like in the winter, buried in the soil and becomes dormant. The soil must be present calcium.
Already in the second year of life, snails living under favorable conditions, will be able to mate. It is normal for the species, when 40 - 50 live snails by about a quarter. m Each lays about 50 eggs. After a year and a half specimen is gaining marketable weight. Thus, from 100 kg of snails, torment, mostly with kids, you can get a few tons of new mollusks.
Another challenge is to obtain certificates. After shipment of goods will be carried out abroad.
To summarize, we note that whether the rabbit, ostrich, chicken, or a small snail, if it is - a living being, the main thing that will have to invest - is the care and attention. Then - success is guaranteed.
Siput babi atau dalam Bahasa Arab disebut halazun, diperselisihkan ulama tentang hukumnya. Imam Malik dan fuqaha Malikiyyah berpendapat bahawa halazun barriy (siput babi) halal dimakan. (Al-Mudawwanah 1/542).
mazhab hanya panduan jika ada pilihan lain dlm ahlul sunnah wal jamaah boleh ikut..contoh guru imam shafie imam malik tidak mengharamkan makan siput babi,sebab itu amat popular di magribi dan beberapa negara arab afrika utara seperti roti canai di malaysia dimana2 bandar mereka ada org jual sup,goreng etc... samalah macam imam shafie halalkan makan anjing dubuk tapi pengikut imam yg lain haramkan....jadilah umat islam yg bermutu dan tahu sedikt sebanyak perselisihan nikmat sesama mahzab yg akhirnya memberi sedikit kelonggaran dlm bab2 yg boleh diperselisihkan sebagai pilihan umat islam.
teringat lak kekecik dulu aku dok pk apsal siput babi ni dipanggil siput babi. and dia mmg ada kena mengena ngan babi ke? apsal org tak bole makan siput babi? adakah sebab nama dia siput babi harooom.. hehe
