1B Industry Applications: The Automated Egg

  • Roger W. Bolz

Abstract

The need to reduce egg production costs in order to secure a profit for the producer has led Big Dutchman to constantly improve the performance and reliability of the layer cage systems it offers to the poultry industry. A growing trend to cut investment costs by “high-density” cage systems that house large flocks in smaller buildings has led to the development of a new three-tier cage system that provides the excellent control afforded by automated feeding, watering, egg collection, manure removal, and ventilation systems.
