What is the development trend of medium-scale standardized layer farms?

1. Medium-scale chicken farms will become mainstream

At present, the long-term "small-scale and large-group" breeding in the layer industry has made disease control in areas with dense layer production become the biggest factor affecting the development of the industry. In the next 5-10 years, chicken farms with a stock of 50,000 to 500,000 layers will become the main source of eggs in the future, and chicken farms with a stock of less than 10,000 will gradually withdraw from the layer breeding industry.

2. Intelligent breeding

With the development of the poultry breeding equipment manufacturing industry and the integration of breeding equipment from countries around the world in the past two years, competition in the breeding equipment industry has become increasingly fierce. The relative investment of breeding equipment in the entire breeding process is constantly decreasing, which has made automated chicken coops popular all over the world. Coupled with the continuous increase in labor costs and management costs, farmers are actively developing in the direction of appropriate scale, standardization, automation, and intelligent breeding. "Man manages machines and machines raise chickens" will become more and more common, and intelligence will inevitably become the industry's choice in the future.

3. Industrial integration

With the scale and modern development of the layer industry, the integrated operation model has gradually been accepted by the majority of chicken farmers. The formation of a completed industrial chain will be very benign to the development of the entire industry. There are specializations in the technical industry, and professional people do professional things. The operation model from breeding-breeding chickens-feed-equipment-animal protection services-brand eggs-egg processing-out of the chicken industrial park is a good model for building a complete industrial chain.

Therefore, it can be seen that the use of automated poultry farming equipment to raise chickens is the general trend.
