Grasshopper farming

Those grasshoppers are mainly used to feed small and medium birds. Small-sized grasshoppers are eaten and biggest ones are used for breeding. In Indonesia, insects grow up during the two first months in private individuals’ boxes in Banjaran village. They are fed with dry bread, pieces of carrots and food supplement. Then, as they become too bulky, they are gathered in a more developed center to complete their growth. They provide all the proteins and fats necessary for the development of birds. All the women we see on central photograph breed insects at home.
