Dialogue between farmers and professionals on intensive poultry farming

  1. Poultry Farmer asks:

In the pursuit of success in the field of poultry farming, there is a key challenge to overcome: how to improve the efficiency of farming. After all, higher yields and better management mean greater success. So, do you want to know how to increase efficiency in farming?

Poultry Professional Answers:

Absolutely! In this era full of opportunities, improving farming efficiency can not only increase production, but also reduce costs and create better economic benefits. Invest in modern poultry equipment. Such as automatic feeding system, drinking water system and climate control equipment can greatly improve the efficiency of farming. Automation can reduce labor costs while ensuring that the birds receive proper feed and water.

Second Health Management: Prevention is better than cure. Regular health checks, vaccinations and disease prevention measures can prevent the spread of disease and keep the birds in a healthy state to increase production.

The third scientific feeding: understand the feeding needs of chickens, formulate a scientific feeding plan, and provide balanced feed, which can promote the growth and egg production of chickens.

2. Poultry farmers ask: what are the common modern poultry equipment?

Battery cage system in poultry: This is a modern poultry equipment layout that makes the most of space. In this system, chikcen battery cages are stacked vertically to minimize floor space while increasing farming efficiency. This system is usually divided into A type and H type chicken cage.

A Type chicken cage: The battery chicken cages is a common stacked cage layout that is shaped like an “A”. There are multiple layers of battery chicken cages in each unit, and feed, water and eggs are transported to different layers through automatic conveyor belts. This system is suitable for small-scale farming, improving chicken density and farming efficiency.

H-type chicken cage system: The H-type chicken cage is more suitable for large-scale farming, especially when you plan to raise more than 30,000 layers in one house. There are multiple battery chicken cages in each unit, and feed, water and eggs are sent to different cages through conveyor belts. Such systems provide higher yields and efficiencies in large-scale farming.

Poultry Farmer Asks: In the world of poultry farming, what is the difference between A Type and H Type layer cage systems?


Great question! There are differences in the layout and scope of application of A-type and H-type layer cage systems. A Type chicken cage are suitable for small-scale farming and can be considered when you have fewer than 20,000 birds. While the H-type chicken cage is more suitable for large-scale farming, especially when you plan to raise more than 30,000 layers in one house.

Poultry Farmer Asks: Besides choosing the right layer cage system, what other factors should be considered?


Of course, there are many important factors that you should consider besides the number of birds. Budget is an important consideration, but you also need to take into account your farm’s infrastructure, technical support and management requirements. Also, your experience and future expansion plans need to be taken into consideration.

Poultry farmer asks: If I choose the H-type layer cage system, how many laying hens can a standard poultry house accommodate?


Of course, you want to make the most of the space. In a standard house (100m*13m*4m), choose 4-tier H-shaped layer cage system, you can accommodate 38,400 laying hens. And if you choose a 5-tier system, you can accommodate 48,000 layers, maximizing the available space while increasing production.

Poultry Farmer Asks: Do you have any other advice for those getting into farming for the first time?


Absolutely! First, fully understand the technical details and operating procedures of the selected cage system to ensure your efficient operation. Second, attend relevant training and seminars to gain experience and learn best practices. Above all, be patient and determined, farming is a job that requires constant effort and attention, but one that will also bring you the joy of a bountiful harvest.

Poultry farmer asks: Are there some common challenges to be aware of while farming?


Of course. In farming, common challenges include disease control, environmental management, feed supply, etc. Ensuring the hygiene of the breeding environment, regular health checks, and reasonable feeding management are the keys to ensure the success of breeding. At the same time, it is recommended to maintain communication with other farmers to share experiences and solve problems together.
