CAHE 2013: Big Dutchman equipment for successful breeder management
At this year’s China Animal Husbandry Expo (CAHE), Wuhan, Big Dutchman introduces an innvoative automatic single laying nest which is especially well suited for broiler breeder management. NXB features different numbers of nest holes (20, 18 and 16 holes per section), thus covering the requirements of different breeding lines. The eggs gently roll into a central egg channel and are automatically transported from the barn by means of an egg belt.
The nest bottom is covered with a perforated nest insert which is easy to install, or taken out for easy cleaning. The partitions between the individual nest holdes are made of plastic and can be opened at any time. The nest roof is made of sheet metal and allows the producer easy access of the egg belt for inspection. A tube can be centrally activated to close all nest holes for the night, keeping nests clean and preventing hens sleeping inside of the nest.
Another advantage is that nest floor and substrucutre below the egg belt consist of corrosion-proof zinc-aluminium coated wire grate for extended service life. The NXB nests have already been successfully tested in several poultry houses in Asia and the US.
Breeder management highlights
Another highlight for breeder management on display is Big Dutchman’s ventilated EUROVENT-Parents manure belt battery for layer breeders. The poultry cages are characterised by the production of clean hatching eggs, a low salmonella risk, an optimum bird number in the poultry house and low labour and control requirements. The cage width and therefore the flock size can be specified by the customer.
