When trying to invest into Snail Farming as a business, some people easily get discouraged maybe because of the fact that they don’t see the need to actually go into it as a business without knowing that snail farming is actually a very lucrative business.
Today, we are going to be discussing about those basic advantages of snail farming as related to environment, inputs and the meat consumption values below:
Snails are environment-friendly, because, unlike poultry or pigs, neither the snail nor its droppings smell offensively. Snails can also be reared in the backyard.
Capital, technical, labor and financial inputs in simple snail farming are relatively low compared to those in other types of livestock farming (poultry, pigs, goats, sheep, cattle).
- Snail meat
Snail meat is a good source of protein. It is rich in iron and calcium, but low in fat and cholesterol compared to other protein sources like poultry and pigs.
