How to make the feed of broiler cages equally divided?

Nowadays, more and more people are plunging into the chicken industry. The large-scale chicken adopts the cage mode. With the rapid expansion of the broiler breeding scale, the mechanical automation is adopted, and the way of feeding the roadway is being raised. Automated chicken battery cages are beginning to be widely used in the chicken industry。

However, the cage restriction limits the feeding space of the chicken. This feeding mode brings us many conveniences and brings us the problem of uneven feed division. How to make the feed distribution evenly in the trough, it is especially important for each chicken to feed the feed that meets its growth needs, to exert its best production performance without causing waste of feed.


First of all, to solve the above problems, the common means is to artificially feed. Artificial ration is a process in which the management staff uses the hand or the other tool to turn the feed in the feeding tank while walking to make the feed evenly distributed.



The benefits of ration feed during aquaculture have the following:


1. By artificially grading the feed, the uneven distribution of the feed in the trough can be improved, which is beneficial to improve the uniformity of the flock.


2. Stimulate the appetite of the chicken, especially the pellets. The feeding habit of the chicken is often to eat the larger pellets first, while the powdered feed is often left. It takes a longer time to eat, and the powdery feed at the bottom of the trough is turned up, which is beneficial for the chicken to eat the granular feed while also eating the powdery feed.


3. In the process of grading the feed, you can also find the lack of management and make corresponding adjustments.


Secondly, apart from the method of ration, what other methods do we have to make the feed in the trough uniform? We need to analyze the causes of uneven distribution of feed in the trough and then adjust it. Here are a few examples based on common causes and solutions.
