5 innovations to look out for in poultry farming

The poultry industry is a thriving sector, which generates billions of dollars revenue every year and creates jobs for hundreds of people. Like other economic sectors, innovations and technological inventions are driving the sector to unprecedented heights.

Even the state of Georgia in the US benefits from the state of the art technologies, which put the state first in poultry farming and seventh in the world, if it were to be an independent nation. Few of the inventions in the poultry sector worth spending time checking, if you are a fan of poultry science.

Egg inject system

Vaccinating day old chicks is a huge task, a labor-intensive job, but hatcheries across Europe and America save thousands of hard-earned currencies, and person-hours, thanks to egg inject system technology.

The system can deliver an average of 50,000 vaccines in an hour, through the shell. Manually, 15 to 20 manual operators should treat 3,000 chicks an hour, to achieve the same feat.

The machine treats the embryo at day 18, with the aid of needles aligned in rows. The rows are custom made to align with each hatchery’s tray shape, as the trays move along a conveyor; the needles gently drop down and strategically inject the eggs shells.

There is zero vaccine wastage, and the needles and the injection site are automatically disinfected by the machine sanitation system.

Remote access livestock monitor

Poultry farming is susceptible to germs that humans, visiting the pen act as vectors for. In order to minimize birds contact with humans, a remote livestock monitor, with high definition camera is making the waves, in monitoring every aspect in birds pens.

The system uses an optical lens, which magnifies images, to a ridiculous distance of 330 feet, enabling the operator the luxury of zooming in on drinkers and feeders, to check the content levels.

The beauty of this invention is the fact that, images can be viewed anywhere and at any time through the computer, laptop or smartphones; the system can send a distress alarm to the phone, which will prompt a login to check what the matter is.

The air qualities monitor systems

Atmospheric conditions influence how well, poultry birds will fair. If the pen is stuffy, the chances are very high, that diseases will break out, or have a costly effect on eggs production, which is why air quality monitor device, is important to monitor, humidity, carbon dioxide, ammonia and temperature levels in the pen.

Precise monitoring of ammonia and carbon dioxide are very important, especially in winter months, when temperatures are very low and ventilations are not frequent.

Carbon dioxide can build up and suffocates birds, before the manager knows there is a problem, since temperature level will not rise enough, to trigger an alarm; the air quality monitor is a good tool to avert disaster.

Roof top Flytraps

The roof top flytrap is designed to eliminate thousands of flies, before they enter pens. The trap has baits, which attracts flies to the plastic trap.

The mixture of water and sunlight activate the bait and entice the female to lay its eggs on the trap. Each trap has the capacity to attract up to 20,000 flies daily, which lay about 150 eggs.

The trap should be 30 feet from the poultry house in the direction where it will not lack sunlight.

The Poultry biomass boiler

The boiler is designed for poultry farm to heat and generates electricity. It depends on poultry litter and it can generate electricity up to 995KW. The boiler’s durable and corrosive resistance stainless steel body is able to cope with the abrasive and corrosive nature of the fuel.

Apart from cutting cost on fuel, it has the potential of generating additional income, from the sales of fertilizer from the poultry litter ash.

Poultry farmers are in the best farming era of all times. There is no better time to invest on poultry than now, when demands are very high, and risks are limited, thanks to breathing taking innovations and inventions that are rocking the world of the poultry industry.
