The alternative layer system
Ethologically sound poultry farming
The Farmer Automatic Floor System was designed in cooperation with poultry farmers and fully satisfied animal welfare requirements for ethologically sound poultry rearing and production. Increasing numbers of farmers in Europe and abroad are using the Farmer Automatic Floor System for their laying hens because the details of its innovative equipment are highly impressive:
- Farmer Automatic guarantees optimum results through the well-planned arrangement of feed chain, nipple drinkers, perches, nesting boxes with integrated egg collection and automatic expulsion system.
- Plastic coated mesh floor provides a high degree of self-cleaning: manure does not stick and mites can not become established.
- Manure removal on Farmer Automatic manure belts ride on rollers to ensure a clean environment in the house and fewer flies.
- For individual planning a range of versions, including two-story versions, are available depending on the house dimensions.
Automatic feeding system
The proven Farmer Automatic chain feeding system is reliable and easy to manage. Long-lasting and wear-resistant, it ensures feed is distributed evenly and quickly with reduced waste and low energy requirements.
Automatic egg collection
The egg collection belts are an integrated part of the nesting boxes and automatically transport eggs away from the birds’ reach and straight to a collection table or elevator, or alternatively straight to a packer or grading machine via a connected Farmer Automatic egg cross conveyor.
Automatic manure removal
Safe and regular manure removal is guaranteed by polypropylene manure belts travelling on rollers. At the end of the row of aviaries the manure falls into a manure cross conveyor. The total solution reduces ammonia build-up and fly infestations to improve the environment in the layer house.
