PULLET FEEDING (0-18 WEEKS)
Spin feeders are a simple, effective and economical method of providing broiler breeder pullets (male and female) with an evenly distributed supply of feed direct on the ground. The result is birds with very uniform body weight, and only a very reduced work load for the producer.
Spin feeders with hoppers are installed along the centre of the rearing house, either suspended from the ceiling or standing on supports. All spinners start dispensing feed simultaneously. The specially developed spin head from LANDMECO ensures that feed is evenly distributed over the entire circular spread area as determined by the rotation speed.
The spin feeder can be operated manually by a Variator gear motor.
All spin feeders can also be operated via a central control unit, which is set according to the age of the birds:
- The number of feedings required
- The duration of feeding
- The area to be covered
The male feeding system is based on a few thoroughly testet standard components,
thus ensuring high reliability and low maintenance costs. The system can be winched
off the ground.
Rapid feed distribution
The direct drive and vertical return wheels allow the chain to run at very high speed.
This ensures a rapid feed distribution and the simultaneous feeding of all cocks.
Male feeding is activated by a time switch on the hen feeding system so that all birds
can be fed simultaneously or separately as required.
LANDMECO also offers separate controls for male feeding.
Transparent feed hopper
LANDMECOs plastic feed hopper is light, quick and easy to mount and
dismount and consists only of a few parts. The transparency in the tank
provides optimal opportunities for good management and good hygiene.
