What are the advantages of broiler cages?

Experiments show that the technical advantage of commercial broiler cages is significantly better than the flat to raise. Not only can increase the number of breeding, improve production performance, save production costs, bring significant economic benefits to farmers, but also save land resources, reduce environmental pollution, improve product quality, and create huge social benefits.

 

In recent years, a more advanced broiler breeding model, broiler cages, is quietly emerging. What advantages does broiler cages have?

 

The advantages of broiler cages are:

 

1. High level of automation: automatic feeding, drinking water, decontamination, wet curtain cooling, centralized management, automatic control, energy saving, reduced labor costs, greatly improving the breeding efficiency of farmers.


2. chicken flock prevention, effective prevention of infectious diseases: chickens do not touch the feces, can make the chickens grow stronger, provide a clean and warm growing environment for the chickens, the chickens are healthy and balanced.


3. Compared with the flat raise, the density of the stock is increased by more than 3 times, the utilization rate of the surface area of ??the house is improved, and the land can be saved.


4. Saving feed: meat cages increase the growth rate and feed conversion rate, chickens are kept in cages, the amount of exercise is reduced, energy consumption is less, and waste materials are reduced. According to the experiment, cage cultivation can effectively save more than 25% of the cost of farming. The ratio of feed to meat in net or flat chicken is generally between 1.75 and 1.8:1, while the ratio of caged meat to meat is at least 1.61:1 and the highest is 1.7:1.


5. Reduce the cost of medicines, at the same time can effectively control the occurrence of the disease, because the chicken does not touch the feces, and the use of closed houses, isolated from the outside, reduce the spread of disease; indoor comfortable environment is also suitable for the healthy growth of chicken.


6. Save time: It is convenient for breeding users to manage livestock and poultry, saving more time to deal with other things; using a fully enclosed and fully automated farming mode, two people can manage a chicken house with 3-4 million chickens, which is very economical. Artificial.

Therefore, on the whole, the advantages of cage farming benefit are more and more obvious. In the previous model of land raising and net broiler chicken, the profit of broiler farming was less and less, and many large-scale farming or group with funds, even small-scale Farmers have changed their own chicken houses into cages to further increase the scale and land utilization rate, and improve the breeding efficiency through scale effect.

The broiler ground thick litter feeding refers to feeding 5-10 centimeters of litter on the ground of a strictly sterilized chicken house, and the entire period of growth of the chicken is fully maintained on the litter. The litter requires soft, dry, strong water absorption, is not easy to compact, does not mold, no pollution. During the rearing process, loosening of padding material, removal of wet litter, and addition of new litter should be made as appropriate.

Advantages: Suitable for broiler growth and development, slightly lower than the Internet temperature during the hot season. Usually do not remove the feces, do not change the litter, save time and labor; in the winter can use litter fermentation heat production and increase Shewen; chicks in the litter activity increased, reduced the incidence of earthworms. Easy to use, low equipment investment, low incidence of breast cysts, and low defective products.

Disadvantages: It requires a lot of litter, repeated investment. The management of litter is difficult. If the management is not good and the litter is wet, various diseases of the digestive tract and respiratory tract infections are prone to occur: such as E. coli, coccidiosis, and chronic respiratory diseases. Direct contact between chickens and feces, the incidence of coccidiosis increased, and other infectious diseases are prevalent. The contradiction between ventilation and heat preservation is prominent, and health management is difficult. Chicken manure use value is reduced.

Advantages of broiler cage equipment

The use of broiler cage equipment is common in many large and medium-sized chicken farms. Except for some farms that are used to free-range, most chicken farms choose to use broiler cage equipment as a device for raising chickens. The broiler cage manufacturers said that the use of broiler cage equipment can collect and manage chickens, save energy, and effectively reduce the incidence of poultry diseases. Let's talk about the advantages of broiler cage equipment.

 

1. High degree of automation: automatic feeding, drinking water, clearing dung, wet curtain cooling, centralized management, automatic control, saving energy, improving labor productivity, reducing the cost of artificial breeding, and greatly improving the breeding efficiency of farmers.

 

 

 

2. The flock is well-prevented and effective in preventing infectious diseases: chickens do not touch the feces, which can make the chickens grow healthier and provide a clean and comfortable growing environment for the chickens.

 

3. Save space and increase stocking density: The cage density is more than 3 times higher than the flattening density.

 

4. Saving farmed feed: caged chickens can save a large amount of farmed feed, chickens are kept in cages, the amount of exercise is reduced, energy consumption is small, and waste materials are reduced. The data show that cage farming can effectively save more than 25% of farming costs.

 

5. Rugged and durable: The caged broiler complete set of equipment uses hot dip galvanizing process, corrosion resistance, aging resistance, and the service life can be as long as 15~20 years.

A Reasonable Broiler House Layout


 A reasonable structure of the chicken house can provide a good living environment for the chickens including of  equipment used in poultry farming, so that they can fully exert their production potential. Therefore, in addition to understanding the physiological characteristics of the chicken itself, the chicken house must be reasonably planned and constructed.
First, chicken layout considerations
1. The site should be chosen away from the residential area, convenient transportation, and far from the road.
2. The terrain is dry and sunny. As far as possible, it is not blocked in winter, no wind in summer, and no water after rain. Large area, leaving room for development
3. Rich in water resources, no pollution, easy to access, sufficient power and protection

4. The structure of the house is practical and economical. It not only saves funds but also saves energy as well as about chicken cages for sale. Its orientation is in line with local natural and physiological conditions. It is well lit, easy to ventilate and easy to operate. It is good for summer heatstroke and cool, and winter is good for heat preservation and cold protection.
5. The layout of the premises should be reasonable, so that the production area is separated from the non-production area. The non-production area and the water source are in the upwind direction of the chicken farm. The dirty road and the clean road are separated and do not cross. The manure field is located in the downwind direction of the chicken farm, and the brooding Separated from the breeding house, the brooding house is located in the upwind direction of the chicken farm.

Broiler feeding equipment is a relatively popular breeding equipment in modern times. The emergence of such equipment has helped farmers solve many problems, while also protecting the environment and reducing environmental pollution. Everyone should also understand some of the advantages of fully automatic chicken equipment, but even the best equipment, if used improperly, there will be misunderstandings, then everyone knows the misunderstanding of automatic chicken farming equipment? Don't worry about it first, let's take a look at everything.

 

Two common mistakes in the use of broiler equipment:

 

1. Choose cheaper when purchasing broiler equipment: The cost of raising chicken equipment to raise chickens is much higher than that of the past. Therefore, many users tend to prefer cheap equipment when purchasing chicken equipment, and pay attention to the quality of equipment. Whether the requirements and standards are met, especially chicken cage equipment, chicken cages are the main equipment for raising chickens. Chicken cages with poor structure and poor quality will affect the growth and production of chickens, and the age is not guaranteed.

 

2. Do not pay attention to the maintenance of broiler equipment: Since the chicken farming equipment is generally large-scale mechanized equipment, the service life is relatively long, and the farmers need to carry out reasonable inspection and maintenance work on each broiler equipment on a regular basis, which can promptly find problems and The fault is solved, and the service life of the equipment can be ensured and extended, and the efficiency of the chicken raising work of the farmers is exerted. However, many farmers have neglected the work, resulting in short service life, high failure rate and increased cost.

 

Regarding the misunderstanding of broiler equipment, misunderstanding of equipment maintenance and the correct method of selecting broiler equipment, broiler equipment manufacturers can only analyze it here. I hope these contents can help you solve some problems.

 

 

 

With the progress of the times and the development of science and technology, the genetic breeding technology of broilers has been greatly improved, and the nutritional formulation of chicken feed has also undergone new changes. Broiler breeds are constantly being optimized, and the feeding and management viewpoints of broiler chickens are no longer practical. The broiler breeders at this time need to understand some new ideas for the early feeding and management of broilers.

Do a good job of early feeding chicks, so that the chicks get even and good development in the first week. Changing the way that chickens were fed before drinking water for a period of time before they were fed will become better when the chicks arrive. Change the practice of distributing drinking fountains according to the number of chickens in the past, and increase the number of drinking fountains accordingly so that the chicks can easily find the water in the column after entering the house. If the chicks do not use the trays within the first day of arrival, use clean plastic cloths on the net or spread clean and hard papers to spread the material on the chicks for feeding. The effect is much better than using the trays alone.

If the chicken farm does not clean the chicken manure in the chicken battery cages in time, the odor in the broiler equipment will be very serious, and it will affect the living environment of the chicken. Seriously, it will cause the chicken to become sick and affect the economic benefits. So what should we do?

 

 

 

 

 

1 padding deodorization

The sulphur is mixed into the litter to make the pH of the litter less than 7, which can inhibit the generation and emission of ammonia in the feces, reduce the ammonia content in the air of the house, and reduce the odor of ammonia. The specific method is to mix into the litter according to the amount of 0.5 kg of sulfur per square meter of ground, paving the ground.

 

2 ground odor

Sprinkle a layer of superphosphate on the ground in the house. The superphosphate reacts with the ammonia gas produced in the chicken manure to form an odorless solid ammonium phosphate salt, which can reduce the emission of ammonia in the feces of the house and reduce the odor of the house. The specific method is to evenly spray 350 grams of superphosphate on the ground of every 50 chickens.

 

3 air odor

The odor in the air is adsorbed by a substance having adsorption such as charcoal, activated carbon, cinder, or quicklime. The method is to use the net bag to load the charcoal and suspend it in the chicken house or properly sprinkle some activated carbon, cinder, lime, etc. on the ground, and the odor in the air can be eliminated to different extents.

 

The above is how to deal with the odor in the air of broiler breeding equipment. I hope that can help the chickens to better raise their chickens, and they clean up the chicken farm equipment in time to give the chicken a good environment.

Reasons for dyspepsia in chicken houses

Nowadays, most farmers raise broiler chickens by using battery cage for broilers. It is convenient and quick to use automatic feeding equipment, and it also saves feed waste. But now, as the summer is about to pass, the autumn will follow, and the rain will be wet. Sometimes there will be a state of indigestion. In fact, there are many factors to consider for this problem.

 

Feed mold infection, mycotoxins can cause digestive diseases such as oral cavity, intestinal tract, causing indigestion, mycotoxin contamination including feeding mildewed feed, and pollution in processing, transportation and storage. Due to the hot weather, the oil is corrupted due to improper preservation, causing broilers to cause glandular gastritis, muscle erosion and enteritis. Free radicals or reactive oxygen molecules produced by fatty acids can affect their immunity, slow down growth, cause poor pigmentation and cause enteritis. Excessive fat addition can cause lubricative diarrhea.

 

 


The nutritional requirements of broilers are relatively high in chicken battery cages . The low content of crude fiber in the feed will result in unbalanced nutrition and excessive crude fiber, resulting in large feed intake of broilers and confusion of gastrointestinal function, which may also cause indigestion. Insufficient energy in the feed The broiler is eating for energy, not enough energy, increasing the feed intake of the broiler, causing other nutrients not directly absorbed and directly excreted, thereby causing indigestion.


It is necessary to know that broilers grow fast, especially the growth of internal organs is 35 days ago; because of the low anti-stress ability of broilers, the environmental requirements are higher. There is no regularity in broiler cage feeding, overeating, or stressing the chicken, or causing the chicken to experience low temperatures at a constant temperature, which can cause indigestion. 60% of broiler chickens are made of water, so there must be sufficient drinking water to meet the needs of the chickens, while some farmers do not pay attention to drinking water sanitation, drinking polluted water or degraded water, causing chicken indigestion.
