I-Feeder Cricket Ranch - uDouglas noKim Vogel

U-Douglas noKim Vogel basungula i-Feeder Cricket Ranch ngo-2018. U-Douglas wayezame imibono embalwa yebhizinisi njengoba esondela eminyakeni yokuthatha umhlalaphansi kusukela kumkhuba wokubonisana nezakhiwo awuqala ngo-1994. izingxabano. UKim wayeqashwe njengochwepheshe bezemfundo yezingane. U-Doug wayebheke ukushiya indawo yokuvakasha, amasudi, amagumbi enkomfa kanye nemvelo yebhizinisi enezingxabano futhi aphishekele indawo enhle yebhizinisi nebhizinisi eminyakeni yakhe yegolide. Uke wazama ukukhulisa amakhilikithi eminyakeni embalwa edlule ngemuva kokubona uhlelo lwezindaba oluqukethe omunye wabaqalayo abamukela izinambuzane njengokudla, uWendy Lu McGill, umsunguli weRocky Mountain Micro Ranch. Imizamo yakhe yasekuqaleni yayingatheli futhi ivame ukuhlekisa. 

Ngo-2017 uKim Vogel, uzakwabo ebhizinisini likaDoug nonkosikazi, kwatholakala ukuthi unethumba ebuchosheni elidinga ukuhlinzwa nokwelashwa okuqinile ngokomzimba izinyanga ezimbalwa ngemuva kwalokho. Ukululama okwaba umphumela kwadinga ukuthi u-Doug noKim bashiye phansi imisebenzi yabo futhi bagxile ekululameni kukaKim. Ekupheleni kuka-2018 njengoba uKim engasancikile kangako kuDoug ukuze athole usizo, inselele yokuhlinzeka uKim ngokuqhubeka nokululama yavuselela intshisekelo kaDoug emcabangweni wokulima ikhilikithi. Lokhu kwamnikeza ibhizinisi lendlu encane ayengalakha ukuze ahlale ematasa futhi etholakala ukuze asize uKim. U-Doug waqala futhi usasebenzisa i-Feeder Cricket Ranch ukuze ikakhulukazi akhonze abathanda isibankwa esinentshebe kanye nabanye abanikazi bezilwane ezifuywayo ezihlala emanzini ngokuletha ikhilikithi bukhoma ngqo emnyango wabo. www.feedercricketranch.com 

Amahora anekhilikithi kanye nocwaningo olutholakalayo kwaholela u-Doug emzamweni wakhe wamanje wokukhulisa amakhilikithi ukuze uthole i-protein powder njengenye iphrotheni yokudla kwezilwane ezifuywayo. Kube nesiqondiso esincane nolwazi mayelana nokukhuliswa kwezinambuzane ngezinga elikhulu elitholakala ngo-2018 uma kuqhathaniswa nanamuhla. Lokhu kwakungenxa yokukhuliswa kwamakhilikithi endaweni engamafidi angu-7,500 XNUMX ngaphezu kogu lolwandle. UDoug kwadingeka aqinisekise uKim ukuthi onyendle ngeke basinde endaweni esezintabeni uma bephunyuka egaraji. Lokhu kuphinde kwaqinisekisa ukuthi ipulazi ngeke libe nomthelela endaweni ezungezile yasezintabeni ngezinhlobo ezihlaselayo.

UDoug waqala izivivinyo zokukhulisa ikhilikithi egalaji elivalekile; ukuzama ngendawo yokuhlala, ukudla, umswakama kanye nokukhiqizwa kwamaqanda. Imizamo ehlulekile yasenkulisa, izinkinga zezinto ezibonakalayo kanye nenselelo yokuthenga yonke imigqomo yokugcina ipulasitiki ebangeni elingamakhilomitha angama-50 kwaba yizithelo zokuba yisiqalo. Izinga lokushisa elingaguquki elingu-87-degree eligcinwe egaraji ngesikhathi sasebusika obubandayo bezintaba zaseColorado likhiqizwa ngokuphathelene nokuxhumana okuvela ezinsizeni zasendaweni ngokusetshenziswa kwamandla okungavamile kanye nezindleko zezinsiza ezizohambisana. U-Doug waqhubeka nokufunda i-gryllodes sigillatus, noma ikhilikithi enebhande ukuze akhulise ukuzala kwezinambuzane futhi ehlise indawo yepulazi. Ufake nezikelemu epulazini ukuze kuncishiswe imfucuza. Ucwaningo lwamathuba ekhilikithi nezikelemu zokudla njengenye imithombo yamaprotheni ekugcineni luholele u-Doug noKim ukuthi baqale inkampani engashiwongo igama layo ekuphishekeleni ukukhiqizwa okukhulu kwempushana yamaprotheni ekhilikithi ukuze ifakwe ekudleni kwezilwane ezifuywayo emakethe yase-US. Ushintsho ekugxilwe kulo belungalindelekile kodwa beludingeka ngokuyinhloko ukuze kuhlinzekwe izinsiza zokusiza ekuqhubekeni nokululama kukaKim kanye nezinga lempilo kanye nokuvuma ukusebenza kokunye ukukhula kwemboni yamaprotheni. U-Doug noKim bakhangwa imiqondo ebophezelekile emphakathini futhi enobungani nemvelo ezungeze leli bhizinisi kanye nemboni entsha ekhulayo ukuze isekele imisebenzi yokuqala efana ne-Feeder Cricket Ranch. 

Abakhiqizi bezinkomo, izingulube nezinkukhu abahlinzeka ngokudla kwabantu nezilwane ezifuywayo babhekene nezindleko ezikhulayo ekukhiqizeni inani elidingekayo lamaprotheni adingwa inani lethu labantu nezilwane ezifuywayo. Izingcindezi zezombangazwe nezenhlalo eziphathelene nokuphathwa kwezilwane zizoqhubeka nokuba yinselele ekhulayo kubakhiqizi benyama. Isidingo esiqhubekayo sezindawo ezinkulu zomhlaba kanye namanzi okukhulisa nokondla izinkomo, izingulube nezinkukhu ezidingekayo ukuze kudliwe abantu kuqhudelana nabathengi bamaprotheni akhiqizwayo. Le nkinga ekhulayo ingase ihlangatshezwe izinambuzane eziningi. Umthelela wemvelo kanye nokusetshenziswa kwamandla kwezitshalo ezinkulu ezikhiqiza inyama kanye nezinselelo eziqhubekayo zokukhiqiza inyama enenzuzo kuyilapho kugwenywa izindaba zonya kwezilwane kuye kwagqugquzela ukufuna izimpendulo ezengeziwe ezilungele umhlaba nezilwane ezidingweni zabantu emhlabeni wonke ukuthola amaprotheni asezingeni. Amathuba okuhlinzeka elinye lamaphrotheni ukuze kuhlangatshezwane nezinselele zomuntu nezemvelo ezibhekene nokukhiqizwa kokudla nokuphakelayo kwamanje nezesikhathi esizayo linxusa u-Doug noKim njengabazali nogogo nomkhulu nabaphathi bepulazi.

U-Doug noKim sebephothule ilabhorethri yabo yokuqala yokuhlola futhi njengamanje basebenzela ukukhulisa ikhilikithi elizenzakalelayo lokukhuliswa kwekhilikithi kanye nesikhungo sokukhiqiza impushana. U-Doug usasebenzisa i-Feeder Cricket Ranch ukuze asebenzele izibankwa, izilwane ezihlala emanzini nasemhlabeni kanye nemiphakathi edobayo. UKim uqhubekile nokululama futhi ubuyele ekhishini ukuze asize ukuthuthukisa izinqubo zokukhiqiza impushana. Bafake ukubuyiswa kanye nokukhushulwa kwemfucuza yezitolo ezinkulu ukuze kuphakelwe amakhilikithi kanye nokusetshenziswa kwemikhiqizo yekhilikithi njengomanyolo ocwaningweni epulazini le-tomato greenhouse. Ipulazi lihlanganisa inani lezinkukhu ukuze kuqinisekiswe ukuthi akukho khilikithi noma isikelemu esingadliwa. Izikelemu zibamba yonke imfucuza esele. Ukugunyazwa kwakamuva e-United States kwezinambuzane ezithile ezihlinzekwe ngamaprotheni ezilwane ekukhiqizeni ukudla kwezinja kubonisa ucwaningo nokuhlolwa kwezinambuzane nokudla nokudla kuyaqhubeka nokukhula ngokuduma. (Ref. AAFCO) I-Feeder Cricket Ranch inikeze i-Texas State University ngamakhilikithi ukuze ihlole ukugayeka kokudla kwezinambuzane njengokuphakelayo kwezinkomo. Bayaqhubeka nokufuna okunye ukusebenzisana kwezemfundo ukuze baqhubekisele phambili isifundo sezinambuzane njengokudla nokudla. UDouglas uhambele i-Pet Food Forum ebise-Kansas City ukuze axoxisane ngekusasa lembonini ezayo nabakhiqizi bokudla kwezilwane ezifuywayo. U-Doug uphinde abe yilungu leNhlangano yaseNyakatho Melika Yokulima Kwezinambuzane futhi uhambele Izinambuzane Zokondla Ingqungquthela Yomhlaba eyayiseQuebec City, CN ekuqaleni kukaJuni 2022. 

U-Doug noKim bajabule ngamathuba ezinambuzane njengemboni yokudla kanye neyokudla. Ukuncishiswa kokulahlwa kokudla, ukuncishiswa kwemithelela engemihle kwezemvelo yokukhiqizwa kokudla kanye nokungavikeleki kokudla kuyizinjongo zethu zebhizinisi. U-Doug noKim bazibophezele ekwakheni ibhizinisi eliletha inzuzo endaweni yabo, umphakathi kanye nomphakathi ngenkathi behlangabezana nezidingo zikaKim.

U-Anastasia Filipenko ungudokotela wezengqondo wezempilo nokuphila kahle, udokotela wesikhumba kanye nombhali ozisebenzelayo. Uvamise ukuhlanganisa ubuhle nokunakekelwa kwesikhumba, izitayela zokudla nokudla, ezempilo nokuqina kanye nobudlelwano. Uma engazami imikhiqizo emisha yokunakekelwa kwesikhumba, uzomthola ethatha ikilasi lokuhamba ngebhayisikili, enza i-yoga, efunda epaki, noma ezama iresiphi entsha.

Okwakamuva okuvela ezindabeni zebhizinisi
