 EMU RANCHING
There are alot of people out ther asking questions about Emus as a
viable livestock.  I feel that it is.  In california we have very
strong associations, CALEA and WEA, together it's members are introducing the
emu products to the public.  Both associations have very active
members.  The industry is well represented at the California State fair
as well as most of the local and county fairs.  I myself am a distributor
for Emu Oil Products and my customers are very pleased and e{*filter*}d
about all of my products.  All my customers are by word of mouth.
People have to realize that they can not enjoy the breeder prices
forever nor is every bird breedable.  Now is the time for people to
market their birds for processing to allow the publuc to enjoy the
by procuts.
 We grow out a few birds each season to be able to serve
as much Emu meat to as many people as we can. The majority of people
who have come to our ranch to try the meat would buy it on a regular
basis.

Isnt it amazing.Here in Australia the emu is considered to
be a pest by graziers when it occurs in large numbers. How
do you think we could export them to redress our balance
of payments?

Perhaps you can export them as a dead, processed product.  However,
the US breeders of Emus & related birds (like Ostrich) some years ago
pushed through the US Dept of Ag a ban on importing any live birds.
Supposedly to stop disease.  Reality (in some opinions)= actually this
kept out cheap breeders which compete with US-grown more expensive
breeders for the limited breeder market.

The latest figures we have here suggest that there are over 500,000
emus in the US already, all derived from the six birds we donated to
the San Diego Zoo way back around the turn of the century. There are
no production birds because there is yet no established market; only
breeders including culls slaughtered as trials.

Christ almighty, why would we want to export any more? Not too far
down the track there is going to be a glut, and a lot of fingers are
going to be burned indeed without us contributing any.

Let them find out for themselves how suddenly populations of these
birds can blow right out of proportion in only one or two seasons,
like we have here regularly during each drought cycle.
