My only expertise is eating emu - had it in South Africa and in Australia. http://www.redoakfarm.com/farming_information.htm Here is a web site that talks about emu farming. Pauljoseph, knowing you is an adventure!

Wonder how much difference in the farming of ostrich and emu. I've never run across emu meat here (I live in South Africa), but lots of ostrich. I wonder if one is easier and more profitable than the other?

Ratites can be dangerous, so be extremely careful. I'd guess emu would be at least somewhat safer than ostrich since they are smaller.

If memory serves, there used to be an emu farm in Kent County, MD. It may have been before it's time. And I've eaten jerk emu sandwich in Salisbury, so there may be an emu farm there.

Never a dull pickle with Pauljoseph! what are Emu's used for anyways? I know ostriches are farmed for meat & eggs, is it the same with Emu?
