Shamba Shape Uganda Season 1 - Shamba Shape Up Series 1 - Ep 11(UG):Chicken management, Coffee management & Brazil spacing

Welcome to Shamba Shape Up Uganda!

We’re in Kasaana village in Masaka and we’re visiting a very hard-working farmer, Mike Ssemaganda and his family, on his 20-acre farm. 

Mike has 13 children and only stopped having more when his 3-year-old twins were born. He doesn’t believe in small scale, neither with family nor with farm!

Apart from his 20 acres, our farmer has bought 80 acres of land 54kms away from his homestead, because where he lives, he can’t find such big stretches of land anymore.

We told you this farmer doesn’t believe in small scale! 

But we’re going to concentrate on this farm here, where he has two coffee plantations and 1700 chickens… 500 layers and 1200 chicks! And I’m sure he has challenges, so we’re going to look into that.

Let’s go and learn:

     1. Chicken:

           i. Housing, hygiene, spraying 

           ii. Feeding, vaccination, prevention of diseases

     2. Coffee:

           i. Old plantation management

           ii. Brazilian spacing advantages and disadvantages

Shamba Shape Uganda Season 1 - Shamba Shape Up Series 1 - Ep 16(UG): Pasture & storage, Dairy AI, Poultry Housing & Management

Welcome to Shamba Shape Up Uganda!

This week we’re in Kasutaime village in Mayuge and we want to see what our 35-year-old farmer, Gerald Machario, is doing on his 12 acres.

Like most farms here, Gerald’s land is fragmented. He still grows sugarcane, bananas, maize and beans but it’s mainly for home consumption. 

But he now has a new project on six acres and it’s not crop: he wants to focus on kuroiler chicken, cows and pastures, is it because it’s more profitable than any other crop… I mean no coffee Gerald?

Let’s go and learn more:

           1) Chicken: 

               • Management of existing kuroilers

               • Housing spacing, feeders, drinkers + perches

           2) Pasture varieties and properties + storage

           3) Cows improving breeds and using Artificial Insemination
