African Giant Snails and Snail Farming is the most comprehensive, practical and up-to-date guide to raising African Giant Snails. Written by experts, it is a combination of quality practical information and the business of snail farming.

African Giant Snails and Snail Farming (2nd edition) is a complete, upgraded combination of African Giant Snails and Snail Farming 1 & 2 books.

Readers will find quality information on:

  • Modern snail farming,
  • Housing i.e. snailery designing (including ornamental snailery)
  • Feeding and feed combinations for snails
  • Handling, hygiene and health management for snails (plus OAK Snail Health Management Chart)
  • Processing, packaging, and marketing of snails
  • And much more

The book concludes with an updated feasibility report that will guide you in writing a business plan or planning your snail business.

It is the fifth title on snail farming, and the 9th text in the series of books produced by OAK Ventures.

This book is aimed at encouraging global farming of land snails (especially African giant snails) for both domestic and commercial purposes; to project snails’ usefulness in the social, economic and health care sectors, and to encourage more research works on the production.

Other Things to Expect in the Book

Classical approach to production strategies, product processing, and marketing are discussed within the text. Also highlighted are possible solutions to some often encountered challenges in the practice.

Snail production is encouraged as a means to wealth creation via the sales of its soft meat and products/by-products, and to promote the general welfare of the populace by means of the flagged nutrient and medicinal values. The farming is suggested for each household because it requires less space, does not constitute any significant environmental nuisance(noise- and odour-wise), is less laborious and not time-consuming.

Furthermore, the animal is highly priced (where eaten) and harmless, unlike other conventional meat animals. The farming is thus recommended for all, even the less privileged.

One thing I like about the book is that it is very very practical and application. The author has done his homework. He did not lift the information from an online resource center.
