Goose, goose, goose,
You bend your neck towards the sky and sing.
Your white feathers float on the emerald water,
Your red feet push the clear waves.
Luo Binwang, “Ode to the Goose”
According to the FAO:’Geese are found all over the world (Table 1), but at present goose farming is economically important only in Asia and central Europe. Most geese are well adapted to hot climates, as long as shade is available, and to high-rainfall regions. They are especially well suited to aquatic areas and marshlands and are completely at home in warm, shallow waterways.
This is clearly shown in the map, while the African countries appearing have recorded a higher number of guinea fowls, which are nutritious and a low-maintenance livestock to raise.
