The gantry feeding method adopts rectangular and square material laying, which increases the contact area, avoids slippage, walks stably, and saves electricity. The feeder can automatically move forward and backward as you want, with less feed waste, and the feeding amount can be adjusted according to the running speed of the feeding cart.

The traveling hopper-type feeding method transports the feed in the turret to the driving hopper of the chicken house through the transverse feeding device. The car runs back and forth, the homogenizer distributes the feed evenly in the trough, and the feed amount can be adjusted. This process works completely in accordance with the pre-set automatic control program.

Type A layer chicken cage system adopts conveyor belt type manure cleaning machine for manure removal treatment. This system is suitable for caged chicken houses such as stacked and stepped cages. The main advantages include the following points.

  • The conveyor belt type manure cleaner can dry the chicken manure into granular form, thereby improving the utilization rate of the chicken manure.
  • The conveyor belt type manure cleaner can directly transport the chicken manure to the manure truck outside the poultry house.
  • The use of conveyor belt type manure cleaner makes the chicken manure non-fermented in the poultry house and makes the air in the house fresh.
  • The conveyor belt of the manure cleaner is made of special EPVC nylon and other anti-aging materials, which have the characteristics of sun protection, cold protection, acid and alkali resistance.

Type A pullet chicken cage system is suitable for feeding chicks between 1 week and 17 weeks old. The type A pullet cage system can choose electric heating or no heating according to the regional temperature. In tropical areas where the temperature is higher, the pullet cage system without heating can be selected. For areas with lower temperatures, it is recommended to use a pullet cage system with electric heaters and automatic temperature control devices. The heating and temperature control system can maintain the temperature and humidity in the cage, making the environment more suitable for the growth of pullet chickens. The temperature adjustment range is between 20-40℃, and the temperature control accuracy is less than ±1℃. The type A pullet cage system has high cleanliness and good epidemic prevention effect, and the survival rate of pullet chickens can reach 95%-99%.
