The Eternal Poultry Farmer Question ‘Cage or Floor’ Gets Answered


Today the owners of poultry farms solve the brain-twister by transferring to cage growing of broilers. For example, the poultry farm ‘Oktiabrskaia’ follows the tendency and has already introduced it to their production process. Now it is a high time to summarize and make conclusions about which type of broilers growing is the most effective.

The comparative inquiry made at the poultry farm ‘Oktiabrskaia’ and in the Russian Scientific and Research Technological Poultry Institute, have shown that compared to the floor type of broilers growing the cage type enables:

0.5 – 5.2 % increasing of the live weight of poultry;

1.2 – 2.0 % increasing of the slaughter weight;

3 and more times increasing of the meat weight from 1 sq m of poultry house usable area;

3.8 – 4.1 times increasing of the profit from 1 sq m of poultry house usable area;

8.3 – 10.8 % meat production profitability increasing;

7.3 – 10.7 % feed expenses per 1 kg of poultry weight reducing;

2 days reducing of poultry growing;

12.5 – 16.2 % reducing of 1 kg meat prime cost.

So, the effectiveness of cage equipment usage was practically proved. The next problem is choosing of cage equipment producer.

In order to solve the problem we decided to compare the broilers growing data, taken from two poultry houses of the poultry farm ‘Oktiabrskaia’, where the cage equipment of two different producers is installed:

According to statistics data, taken at the poultry farm ‘Oktiabrskaia’, the best results were received with using of the cage equipment for broilers growing of TEXHA production. This is the last model of the equipment, which has the hopper feeding system. It meets the poultry growing standards from the first day of its living.

Now the question of poultry specialists ‘Cage of floor?’ may be eliminated from the eternal question army. Today it has the good answer, which is confirmed by the number of research and observations.
