Comparison Between Swiftlet Farming And Other Breeding of Animals !!!
Oh please don't chop the duck head yet. Just hold a few more seconds. Let my blog readers finish reading this article !!!!
I was invited to give a small presentation yesterday to a Co-op, in Kampung Attap, Kuala Lumpur.
After about 45 minutes of Swiftlet Farming introduction I was taken for a sea food dinner at Jln Klang Lama.
While discussing about swiftlet farming breeding method, one of the enthusiast described on how he was fascinated with Swiftlet Farming. (He must be a pious Buddhist)
What he told me, his reason on why he is vary fascinated with Swiftlet Farming, was the comparison he made between other forms of animal breeding and swiftlet farming.
"Harry, when you carry out swiftlet farming you actually do not kill any of them. You look after those birds like a very precious animal. Sometime I think much better then your own family. You do not harm them at all. You let them stay in a specially made farm, cool, humid, safe and allow them to come and go. They can come and go from the day they can fly until they die. What you earned is by harvesting their precious nests. That also after those young babie flew away.
You harm nothing. The parent,after about 10 days, will come back to the same spot to build another nest for their next breeding cycle. No killing, no harm done, no injection, no slaughtering and etc.
But if you look at other types of breeding of animals, example sheep, cattle, fish, chicken, duck, pigs and many others, you actually look after them for a certain period of time and when the times come you sent them to the slaughtering house.
"Harry, I don't think I can do that. Just imagine you see them growing from small baby to adults and then you slaughter them just to earn an income. That is cruel, very cruel."
"Because of that I feel very comfortable in swiftlet farming. You do not harm them at all. You do not sent them to any slaughtering houses. That's the biggest different."
Hmm ....this guy got a very good point. I have never thought about this comparisons and he got a very strong case.
So those who are vegetarian you might want to be a swiftlet breeder or farmer. He he he.
No harm done to those swiftlets.....
Look at these pictures and imagine you look after them from young. You take care about them like your own child and then you slaughter them just to make some money. Yuk it just sound not right ....
