Are your geese 'organic'?
Last Updated: 07/26/2012
We have chosen not to pursue organic grains at this time because geese are extremely sensitive to molds (it kills goslings and makes adult males go sterile).  All inputs to the geese are inspected on arrival at our farm, our hay and straw is shedded inside large buildings to insure they stay mold free.  If we find any molds in any of our feedstuffs, that has to go straight back where it came from or to the compost pile.  To date, we have yet to find a suitable organic alternative for the all the goose food items we need in the quantities we need them.  Geese convert at a rate of 7:1, meaning it takes 7 lbs of feed for every 1 lb of meat.
