Egg Focus Service
For our commercial farms, we provide an Egg Focus service where we gather data on a weekly basis to assess on farm performance. From this we can react quickly and accordingly to any changes required. The Egg Focus service concentrates on percentage lay and egg size so we can alter diets when needed.
This information is then plotted on a graph, against breed targets, and sent back to the producer. As a result, this keeps the dialog flowing between the CMC team and our customers, ultimately coming to a mutual agreement on ration changes.
The CracklessEgg also helps determine where hairline cracks might be occurring as a result of issues in the system. This technology involves placing a replica egg in the nest box and following it through the entire system until it is packed on a tray and stacked.
The CracklessEgg sends a Bluetooth signal to a tablet which shows a real-time line graph, thus illustrating where cracks will be occurring. This technology has revolutionised reducing seconds on farm, thus saving the farmer potentially thousands of pounds in downgrades. On the left is an example of a chart produced on farm. Anything in the red zone is where an egg would crack.
If you are looking to get into poultry, then give us a call. We can help with planning, costings, and all aspects of setting up a unit. We have years of experience and can guide you through the right process to help YOU set up a successful business.
