Drone footage follows 10,000 ducks “cleaning” rice paddies in Thailand

  • After the rice crop was harvested on a farm in Nakhon Pathom province in Thailand, a flock of around 10,000 ducks was released from a pen - and instinctively streamed towards the flooded fields to devour pests such as snails hiding in the rice stubble.

    Drone footage, capturing the spectacle that resembles naturally-occurring animal migration, shows the birds zig-zagging across the fields as they headed towards the nutrient-rich rice paddies.

    This way of raising ducks in rice-growing areas has long been a tradition in the area and other parts of the region. Thais call it "ped lai thoong", which means "field chasing ducks".

    The Khaki Campbell ducks, a British breed, are brought to rice fields after 20 days in nursery and will be raised on the move for the next few months. After roaming free for about five months, they are returned to the duck farm to produce eggs for up to three years.

    "The benefit (for the breeder) is that we reduce costs to feed the ducks," said Apiwat Chalermklin, 34, a breeder who took over the business from his father. "And in return, for the rice farmers the ducks help eat pests from the farm and the farmers can reduce the use of chemicals and pesticides."

    Apiwat has four flocks of ducks that move around different rice fields in the province where farmers typically cultivate three rice crops every year.

      @Purple Emerald Plus, why bother wasting energy flying around looking for food. Let the humans give then a ride to the next field, and feed them back at the farm while they produce eggs, and eventually duck soup.

      People upset about farming animals, yet it comes with benefits for the animals too. Farmed animals have their species protected and as individuals are protected from predators. Now yes, cramped farming is bad, but this isn’t what’s happening here.

    Just to clarify an issue some people have with this video, their wings are not clipped. This breed of duck is The Khaki Campbell, which typically is a bit of a heavy bird with wings too short to fly that well. They're similar to chickens in that while they can jump and use their wings to stay up for a short period of time, they use a lot of energy to do so, as a result they instead like to travel in flocks like you see in the video to appear larger and protect each other. Bit like sheep or penguins.

    This only works in tropical places like Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines because the growing season is not followed by a harsh winter season. Note in the description that the ducks are in the fields for five months AFTER the rice has been harvested--in the US, Canada, and Europe--the five or so months after the harvest are our winter months--no bugs.

      @Merv it's not a you problem i assure you. where are you from?

    • Merv
      Merv Hace un año

      ​@bangtu hauptilagie Thing is, you didn't start by talking about your part of the world. You've made some sweeping (and sarcastic) statements about the beef industry in general that simply don't measure up to my experience. Fact is, where I'm from, your sarcastic comment falls on it's face. We do eat top quality grass fed beef, and we export it to the world too. Our dairy cattle don't spend any of thier lives in barns. They graze lush green pastures year round. And any supplementing of their feed is done purely for a balanced nutritional diet. In much the same way as any ideal pasture contains grain and legumes naturally. We have the space, and farmers adjust herd sizes according to the availability of water.

      So with all due respect my dude, it still sounds like a you problem. And when you say we this and we that, just know that we're not all in the same boat as you.

      I'm glad we can agree however that the world's growing dependence on soy and similar monocultures is deeply concerning. Whether we feed it to cows or send it straight to the heavily polluting factories that make fake food or concentrate it for the sugar they put in everything these days.

    • bangtu hauptilagie
      bangtu hauptilagie Hace un año +1

      @Merv dude 80% of soy that is planted world wide is used for feeding it to animals. i'm not from the US, i'm from central europe and while grass and hay are important food sources for cows here, we still feed them soy and corn especially for milk production but also for beef.
      "you sound like you need a bit of iron in your diet"
      may i ask why you think so? because i question the worlds meat consumption? btw, even if grazing is the primary form of beef farming in your country, it still needs more space and water. there is no way around it. and i'm no vegetarian myself. i just don't eat a lot of meat.

    • Merv
      Merv Hace un año

      @bangtu hauptilagie Sounds like a you problem... In my country, grazing is the primary form of beef farming as well. Probably why we sell so much of it to the US. You should try some. You seem like you need a bit of iron in your diet. And maybe cut down on the salt... lol.

    • bangtu hauptilagie
      bangtu hauptilagie Hace un año

      @Icof onoldpeople copy paste didn't work here it is again for you
      "Most Beef Cattle Are fed Soy Most of the beef cattle raised in the US are fed soy , along with other grains, when they hit the feed lot. Soyfeed is very cheap and causes the animals to gain weight quickly. This is true not only for conventional cattle , but for many cattle that are sold as organic or “natural.”

      I thought the idea genius, I've no doubt those ducks are reared to eat and would be culled within a year? I'm afraid the reality of transporting live stock where ever in the world, especially in poor countries is by diesel trucks? As for mentioning bird flu, I'm sure that could be said for any animal in the food chain, yet another reality? I would of thought these points would of been a given? Other than the salty tone there wasn't much to the reply. Have a nice day.

      @humboldthammer - Your interpretation of the Bible end times is off. You say that you have knowledge no else knows but the Bible said that God's own people will know and understand as the events unfold collectively and cohesively, even if they don't talk to each other about it because it is the Holy Spirit that gives them that understanding and insight. If you say that you are getting info no one else is getting from God then it's wrong.

    I like this idea, we should load up free range chickens on a truck, release them into vacant fields to control deer ticks and other pests! Better eggs is just a bonus.

      Lots of farmers are already doing this! There are trailer coops made just for this purpose. More than pests, chickens can completely strip land of everything, including poison ivy, poison oak, and poison sumac in no time flat. They will leave nothing but the trees and dirt, thoroughly re-fertilized by their poop. Along with dust bath divots in places but what can you do.

      Exactly HollyHill and Babayaga !,they are being used, like the video said these people are duck breeders that are factory farming these animals who don't have a say so in the matter, for food. I can't imagine the living conditions those poor animals are made to stand when they aren't allowed out to clean the field! It's horrific, too many people are ignorant to the suffering in these farming situations. It disgusts and saddens me. I think most human beings truly feel that we own the earth so to speak, that the animals and the resources of our planet are here for our use and to do with it what we please, but that could not be further from the truth. Our planet is billions of years old, there have only been human beings for thousands of years which is a minuscule blip in time. A totally insignificant amount of time when you look at the whole picture. To try and assert the notion that we show up on this planet hundreds and hundreds of millions of years after other animals have been living on this planet and say OK ,we're the reason that these animals are here and this earth is here. It defies logic, it's stupid, and it's ignorant. I hope young people will really take the time to think and ask themselves ,"does really make ANY sense?".
      We've made some strides as humans and evolved a little in the way we think about and treat our fellow man, things that were ok long ago are shocking to us now, so Im hoping humans will evolve in the way they see and treat animals as well. I hope factory farming (animal abuse etc ), will be just as shocking as slavery, stoning people, marriage at age 12 for girls, horrific medieval torture , drowning women to see if they are a witch, crucifixion, etc..Lets keep evolving!

    The eggs from that breed are larger than a chicken’s egg, and are very nutritious.

    Edit: you don’t have to eat eggs that’s not what I’m saying. I raised Khaki Campbell ducks for 4-H so I figured I’d share a fact I knew about the breed.

      @C Man Before 1900 people didn't eat as many animal products like we do now. Plus their diets were more rich in fiber.
      Average life spans increased because the "conditions" improved overall (acess to clean treated water, acess to food, etc), acess to healthcare and meds... Wanna know what else increased? Being overweight is getting more common in the majority of countries along with many diseases that can be cured and prevented if people ate at least 90% of whole plant based foods. The ideal is to have less than 10% of animals products and minize processed junk along with unrefined or refined oils.

      ​@Human Parasite You're pretty dumb if you think heart disease mainly comes from meat and raw animal products. Before 1900 heart disease was practically unheard of, even though humans ate meat then too.

      Your karma theory is also full of holes. Our average life spans actually increased, even after meat consumption skyrocketed.

      How is anyone supposed to take you seriously?

      @Andreia Rodrigues Nope, I don't wanna look like a dead person like most vegans. Why would I eat a lot of these variety of plants to get enough proteins when I can get it from eating 2 eggs. I've been eating eggs for 20 years and I'm fine. I love meats as much as I love food plants but I can't live with just eating one of them. So you go vegan and I'll stay as a normal human being, how nature created me, an omnivore.

    Is this the most efficient use of ducks? At first glance, it looks to me that one huge group is a suboptimal solution from the perspectives of both feeding the ducks and clearing pests in as much area-time as possible.
