Good article about Distiller's grains. DDGS with antibiotics may be a blessing in disguise to 3rd world countries when feeding costs are considered but the consequence on the over all human health implications may be too expensive to bear.The development of antibiotic resistant strains of organism is one of the major challenges to health and chemotherapy.

The nutritional and therapeutic benefits of mushroom demand that its cultivation should be encouraged globally. I am therefore asking for informations that will enable me to start and promote mushroom farming in Nigeria which is currently unpopular. I welcome suggestions and technical assistance or parnership in this area.
Nigeria has a big unexploited market potential for mushroom.

It is true that wild fish taste better than farm grown ones. Taste of fish is a function of age and the ingredients that made up its feed.
Fast grown fish have poor taste which is typical of cultured fish while slowly grown ones have a better taste. I did a little research whereby I combined natural feeding process with artificial feeding, which resulted in delayed growth, but gave a ...
