TURKEYS & DUCKS BREEDING
The rearing of turkeys & ducks is one of the most important phases in poultry farming since the breeders (mothers of the next broods) are reared during this stage. Therefore, the following factors have to be monitored and managed:
Feeding and Weights
The feed managment is a key factor in this stage. The feed dosage and schedules for feed supplying is quiet important for the successful growth of poultry. Therefore It is necessary to have high accuracy in the feed dosage. To do so we need devices for dosing a continuous weighing of the birds to check the growth rate.
Lighting control is essential to prevent negative behaviour in birds and to encourage proper feeding.
Turkey and ducks must have security systems in the rooms to warn farmers and vets of alarms such as temperature, gases, etc. Also it has becomen more and more important to monitor energy efficiency during the breeding.
