1 Equipment selection

      The broiler equipment is actually a complete set of equipment, including automatic water supply system, automatic feeding system, automatic cleaning system, automatic temperature control system, automatic ventilation system and automatic lighting system. The following focuses on the selection of cages, shelves, water lines, troughs, and faeces:

1.1 Selection of cages

      1.1.1 The weight of the cage

      Usually the weight of the cage is divided into 9 kg / strip, 10 kg / strip and 11.5 kg / strip.

      1.1.2 The material of the cage

      According to the difference of rigidity, there are national standard and non-national standard, the rigidity is Q195, and there is Q235.

      1.1.3 The specifications of the cage are different

      In general, the cage has four specifications, which are 1400 mm × 800 mm × 420 mm high; 1400 mm × 700 mm × 420 mm long; 1250 mm × 800 mm × 420 mm long; 1150 mm long × 1000 mm × height 450 mm. Farms can choose according to their actual needs.

      1.1.4 The galvanization of the cage is different

      According to the galvanizing situation, it is divided into cold plating (also called electroplating), hot plating and galvanized wire.

      1.1.5 Rationality of cage structure design

      For example, the cage bottom and the wire diameter of the cage wire are 3.5 mm, and the diameter of the cage wire is 2 to 2.5 mm, and the bottom of the cage is surrounded by a cage wire.

1.2 Classification of shelves

      1.2.1 Different materials are available in angle iron and galvanized sheet.

      1.2.2 Different processes. One is hot-dip galvanizing after the angle iron is welded, and the other is that the galvanized sheet is directly bent and bent.

1.3 Classification of water lines

      1.3.1 Round pipe waterline

      The advantage of the round pipe waterline is that it is cheap and easy to clean. The disadvantage is that the pipe wall is thin and the sealing is relatively poor.

      1.3.2 Square water line

      The advantage of the square pipe water line is that the pipe wall is thick and the airtightness is good, which is convenient for the automatic water-lifting line. The disadvantage is that the price is high and the physical method is not convenient to clean.

1.4 Classification of troughs

      1.4.1 Raw materials: good toughness and high price.

      1.4.2 Recycled material: fragile, poor toughness and low price.

1.5 Classification of the belt

      1.5.1 PP belt: good toughness, long service life, but high price.

      1.5.2 PVC belt: short service life and low cost. It is recommended that each farm should choose cost-effective broiler cage equipment according to its own economic situation. In addition, we must choose a large company, quality, installation, and after-sales service.


2 The main points of use and maintenance of cage equipment

       2.1 Communicate and learn with equipment manufacturers, and learn to use them.

       2.2 Many farms with successful breeding learn from successful experiences.

       2.3 The use, maintenance and maintenance of the equipment shall be filed. At least one batch shall be updated once and must be professionally responsible.

       2.4 The necessary fragile accessories should be reasonably stocked.

       2.5 Pay attention to the safety of the equipment and not let the equipment hurt the chicken.

       2.6 Training on the use, maintenance and maintenance of equipment should be studied actively and carefully, so that the equipment should contribute better to raising chickens.
