How should the laying equipment be selected?

When several customers consulted the product, it was contradictory to choose the ladder type or the battery type of the layer equipment. I don't know how to choose it. Here are some years of experience based on the experience of poultry farming equipment manufacturers, how to choose the correct type of chicken cage.
Now there are two mainstream farming equipment for laying hens, one is stepped and the other is stacked. Now both devices can be fully automated, including feeding, drinking, cleaning, collecting eggs and ventilation. They can be very advanced, which can reduce the labor intensity of workers and save labor costs.

Stepped layer equipment

The stepped layer equipment is a type A cage installed in the chicken cage, and there are two kinds of shovel scraping and shovel. It is an early-stage layer raising equipment, and now the average small and medium-sized customers still use stepped layer equipment.


Its advantages are:

1. The open area of the chicken cages in each layer is large, even if it is the open house, the ventilation is just as good;

2. The lighting is better, and natural light can be used;

Its shortcomings are also obvious;

1. Low stocking density and large land occupation;

2. The chicken manure on the upper layer of the chicken cage will fall to the lower layer of chicken.



Battery layer equipment

The battery farming equipment means that the chicken battery cages are layered like a building. This kind of equipment was developed in the later stage. As the land resources become more and more tense, the land that can be used for farming is less and less, so more and more The customers will increase the density of breeding, in order to save land, the degree of intensification is also getting higher and higher, some even make 8-10 layers, a chicken house raises 100,000 chickens.


Its advantages are:

1. Fully automatic control, greatly reducing the number of operators, reducing labor intensity and improving labor productivity;

2. There is a clearing belt at the bottom of each layer, which is clean and hygienic to ensure the health of the chicken;

3. Small footprint, high space utilization, easy to achieve intensive and large-scale breeding;

4. The chicken manure is layered and cleaned, and it is easy to collect and concentrate after treatment. The utilization rate of chicken manure is high and the pollution to the environment is extremely small;

5. The fully enclosed feeding mode is conducive to preventing the occurrence of infectious diseases and improving the production performance of the flocks;


Its shortcomings:

1. It is necessary to adopt closed type and automatic temperature control, otherwise the temperature inside the house is difficult to control;

2. The risk factor is relatively high, and there are tens of thousands of chickens in a house.

If the laying rate of laying hens is below 30,000, it is better to choose a step type. If the laying rate of laying hens is more than 30,000, it is more appropriate to choose a cascading type.
