PAN FEEDING KICK-OFF 330Âº
CREATING SUPERIOR FEED ACCESS READY WITH KICK-OFF 330Â° (PATENTED)
The Kick-off 330Â° feeding gives a far greater assurance for a better start as it automatically overflows all pans 330Â°, creating superior feed access to all chicks in the house (2.0 kg per pan). The Kick-off 330Â° combined with the unique design of the pan, which presents the feed in the chicks’ eye level, offers an availability of feed in the house which has never been seen before.
The combination of the slope of the overflow feed and the chicks curious behaviour will create an activation effect, which will stimulate more chicks to correct feeding behaviour (eating from one place: the pan) at an early stage, thereby enhancing uniformity. As the only system, kickoff also provides the possibility of feeding chicks regularly with many small meals, automatically. With “Stimulation feeding” 0.5 kg of feed is supplied pr. outlet.
The Kick-off principle:
The kick-off feeding system provides centrally controlled overfilling of all pans at the same time. It is controlled centrally by one single operation for each feed line (rotating the pipe), which is extremely timesaving and eliminates the need for manual work otherwise connected with providing feed on the floor/paper.
+ 30 G THE FIRST WEEK!
The system stimulates the chicksâ€™ curiosity and collectively activates them to seek fresh feed. Experiments have thus shown, that chick bodyweight is up to 30 g higher than normal after the first week, when the kick-off system is used.
As the only system, easy-clean provides the possibility of bringing all pans on a feed line into cleaning position by one single operation (central rotation of the pipe). In this position, all outlets are simultaneously closed, thus ensuring that the insides of pipes remain dry. LANDMECOs pans must not be disassembled for cleaning. Easy-clean is extremely timesaving and minimize the manual work, which is typically connected to the cleaning process.
The pan has a low edge (52 mm), which allows the day-old chicks easy access to the feed. Also, the chicksâ€™ appetite improves as the feed remains fresher, because there is only app. 1.1 kg feed in the pan. Another benefit is that the pan can be raised from the litter after only a few days.
No feed spillage (improved edge)
No feed spillage is further ensured by means of the improved pan edge slope and the integrated partitions. The feed is deposited at the correct distance from the pan edge, so that even dayold chicks can reach the feed without having to stand in the pan. This prevents the chicks from contaminating the feed with litter and droppings.
Transparent cone (improved)
The pans are with transparent cones, thus making it easy to see whether the cone and pan are clean. It also makes the quantity of feed in the pan visible, thus providing better conditions for the daily management.
Improved hygiene & animal welfare
The Kick-off 330Â° pan is high polished and the number of parts and parts interfaces has been reduced, which all leads to a better hygienic performance. Also, there are no sharp edges on the Kickoff 330Â° pan, which improves the animal welfare.
