Our Sustainable Poultry Farming
MPF is concerned about our natural resources, and we work hard to be responsible stewards of land, air, water and energy. As demands to feed the world’s growing population become even greater, sustainability is much more than a buzzword. Every aspect of the egg production process, from cultivating feed to transporting the eggs, has led to a reduced environmental footprint.
Due to increased feed efficiency, advancements in hen housing and best practices in manure management; egg farms use less water and energy on a daily basis and release less pollutantsperunit. Eggs produce lowest carbon footprints as compared to any other animal protein source and can be said as climate smart diets.With improvement in breed characterstics of layer birds by Venky’s,Skylark and RIR hens are laying more eggs per annum which lead to reduced carbon emission based on the life cycle assessment study.
We are harvesting 10 kW of solar energy required to operate the poultry farm.Approximately 20 metric tonnes of Carbon emissions reduced as compared to other means of power generation.
We try to avoid open dumping of poultry manure to reduce green houses gases emissions. The agriculturist from local areas is supplied with Poultry manure, which is an excellent, low cost fertilizer and its use is replacing synthetic fertilizers like urea. Land application of litter returns nutrients and organic matter to the soil, building soil fertility and quality. In addition to the macronutrients, N, P and K, poultry manure contains calcium, magnesium, sulfur, and micronutrients. Poultry manure contains nutrient elements that can support crop production and enhance the physical and chemical properties of the soil. It increases the moisture holding capacity of the soil and improves lateral water movement, thus improving irrigation efficiency and decreasing the general droughtiness of sandy soils.
Our 3R Strategy
The “3 R’s” Rule
Best practices of solid waste management and environmental stewardship: Stands for “Reduce” consumption, “Reuse” until no longer useful and lastly “Recycle” what cannot be reused – each step to be considered in order to minimize or delay materials entering the waste stream.
Many of the things we use every day, like paper bags, cans, and plastic bags and jute bags, are made out of materials that can be recycled. Recycled items are put through a process that makes it possible to create new products out of the materials from the old ones.
We are ensuring a bright and fruitful future for all of our stakeholders through the hard work in order to achieve the desired goals and upgrading the poultry sector.
