Faculty of Agriculture, KKU and the National Research Council (NRCT) hold a learning and sharing event “Appropriate Technology Transfer to Community Enterprises for Raising Local Laying Hens”

The project: “Appropriate Technology Transfer to Community Enterprises for Raising Local Laying Hens for Marketing Healthy Eggs” was granted the research scholarship from the National Research Council of Thailand (NRCT) in 2020. The project team consists of: Assoc. Prof. Sajee Kanhariang, Ph.D., Project head; Asst. Prof. Yupin Phasuk, Ph.D.; Asst. Prof. Yaowarat Sriwaranan, Ph.D.; and Asst. Prof. Taweesak Techakriangkrai, Ph.D.

The goal in raising native laying hens is to build standards for the farmers, strengthen laying-hen farmers, and promote village market toward premium customer groups, such as those who care for health, those undergoing rehabilitation, and the elderly group. The project promotes native laying hens developed from indigenous hens in Thailand, so that the farmers who are interested can hold this as their sustainable occupation. Farmers can raise the hens on their own as they already have access to the native laying hens. The end result would be adding value to the supply chain.

On October 5, 2021, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. – the Project organized a learning and sharing activity on production and use of Black Soldier Fly and cooking dishes from the eggs from the native laying hens at the Industrial Insect Unit, Faculty of Agriculture, Khon Kaen University. The participants at this workshop included 44 farmers from Muang District, Ubonrat District, Nampong District, and Banphai District, Khon Kaen.

Asst. Prof. Yupin Phasuk, Ph.D., Head of the Department of Animal Husbandry welcomed the participants to the training. Assoc. Prof. Sajee Kanhariang, Ph.D., the Project Head reported on the background of the project and the activity.

Prof. Thatsanee Jaemjanya, Ph.D.; application of natural food for the ‘Daeng Dok Koon” native laying hens by Asst. Prof. Pitchayarat Saenchaisuriya.
