Excerpt from The Reliable Pheasant Standard, the Recognized Authority: A Practical Guide on the Culture, Breeding, Rearing, Trapping, Preserving, Crossmating, Protecting, Stocking, Hunting, Propagating, Etc. Of Pheasants, Game Birds, Ornamental Land and Water Fowl, Singing Birds, Etc.; Valuable Recipes for Poultrymen For a number of years I have been a most enthusiastic admirer and breeder of pheasants, ornamental birds and game, and always on the look-out for new innovations in this line. I have corresponded with many fanciers on the subject and collected all the information pos sible. The results of my practical experience, I will endeavor to render in plain words and short sentences as explicit as possible in this little book. The artificial culture of pheasants and Game birds is not entirely anew one; yet it will attain more popular attention when it becomes known what pleasure and profit can be derived from this grand industry under proper management. The fancier who wishes to keep these birds, take an interest in them, and make them happy. It is my purpose in writing this book to give as clearly and plainly as possible the needful instruction for the culture and management of these birds. I believe once started, the fascination, pleasure and profit will not let you abandon this beautiful industry again.

Techniques and systems for processing food scraps, manure, yard debris, paper, and more Turning waste into wealth sounds too good to be true, but many worm farmers are finding that vermicomposting is a reliable way to do just that. Vermicast--a biologically active, nutrient-rich mix of earthworm castings and decomposed organic matter--sells for $400 or more per cubic yard. Compare that to regular compost, sold at about $30 a cubic yard, and you'll see why vermicomposting has taken root in most countries and on every continent but Antarctica. Vermicomposting is also one of the best sustainable solutions for organic waste management. Vermicomposting manure and crop wastes on farms improves crop yields while reducing demand for off-farm inputs. Vermicast has higher nutrient levels and lower soluble salt content than regular compost, and it improves soil aeration, porosity, and water retention. Plus, vermicast suppresses plant diseases and insect attacks. Municipalities, businesses, community gardens, schools, and universities can set up vermicomposting operations to process food residuals and other waste materials. The Worm Farmer's Handbook details the ins and outs of vermicomposting for mid- to large-scale operations, including how to recycle organic materials ranging from food wastes and yard trimmings to manure and shredded office paper. Vermicomposting expert Rhonda Sherman shares what she has learned over twenty-five years working with commercial worm growers and researchers around the world. Her profiles of successful worm growers across the United States and from New Zealand to the Middle East and Europe describe their proven methods and systems. This book digs into all the details, including: Choosing the right production system Regulatory issues and developing a business and marketing plan Finding and managing feedstocks Pre-composting: why and how to do it Monitoring an active worm bed Harvesting, screening, testing, packaging, and storing vermicast Markets for earthworms and vermicast Food security: how vermicast benefits soils and plants Keys to success: avoiding common pitfalls From livestock farms and restaurants to colleges, military bases, and prisons, Sherman details why and how commercial-scale vermicomposting is a fast-growing, sustainable solution for organic waste management. The Worm Farmer's Handbook is the first and only authoritative how-to guide that goes beyond small-scale operations and demystifies the science and logistics of the fascinating process that is vermicomposting.
