Turner Blvd, Pahrump, held an open-house for the public Sunday, April 20. To introduce Emu meat. Along with the other guests attending, were Larry and Shirley Mauldin, owners of the Shilo Emu Ranch in Pahrump. Moehr and Cleveland started raising emus about 4 years ago with only six birds. From that original six, their stock has grown to 52 full-grown emus and 100 younger birds of various ages. The emus are nice to raise because they are clean and not noisy. Baby emus are striped, but lose their stripes when they're 2-3 months old. Emus are separated into groups according to age. They run around and into each other so much, that if left all together, the large emus may injure the small ones running into them. Emus are considered livestock and their meat is very tasty, a lot like beef. The meat when used like hamburger is comparable to seven percent beef. The meat is used for roasts, stir-fry, jerky, and other dishes. Most of the meat comes from the thighs, forequarters and drumsticks. The demand for this meat is growing. Although raised primarily for meat, other parts of emus are used for medicine, cosmetics, jewelry, and other things. The feathers are used for dusters, hat pins, earrings, necklaces, floral arrangements and whatever strikes a person's fancy. The toenails and beaks are also used for jewelry. Even the egg shells are used. They can be carved or have designs etched on them to make attractive knickknacks. The oil is used in cosmetics, for burns, scar tissues, arthritis, bursitis, sprains, psoriasis and other uses. A major benefit ofemu oil is that it is low in cholesterol. Breeder emus start laying eggs when they are approxi- mately 2 years old. They lay one egg every third day during the laying season. Emus that are not breeders are considered slaughter birds. The breeding emus are kept in a separate area with their mates. Chief Executive Officer resigns at Echo Bay Mines Tuesday, April 22, 1997 -- Richard C.
