The larger pullet cage

This battery pullet system is equipped with all unique Farmer Automatic features providing an animal-friendly and economical rearing system for layer pullets.

Plastic coated, rectangular wire mesh on cage floors allows safe rearing of pullets without the need for additional floor matting in the first day of growing cycle. Feed access slots are adjustable to fit the size of pullets from day one, yet they are unable to slip into the feed trough. If pullets are not crowded and are provided adequate cage area, they will form small groups which results in a more uniform bird size.

Automatic feeding system
The Farmer Automatic V-Link chain feeding system has been used in farms around the world for over 30 years. Our design places the chain in a trough outside the cage, keeping it free from debris and allowing easy access for inspection and management. The long-lasting, wear-resistant chain distributes the feed evenly and, unlike some spiral feeding mechanisms, there are no injuries or mortalities.

Automatic drinking system
Farmer Automatic offers stainless steel, 360 degree nipple drinkers, four per cage. The watering pipe has a stepless height adjustment depending on the age of pullets.

Each cage contains four nipple drinkers with big cups. Drinkers can be adjusted to fit any height requirement.

Manure removal
Farmer Automatic manure systems are engineered for performance, simplicity and low maintenance. Polypropylene manure belts travel on rollers for safe, trouble free manure removal. The belts deliver the manure to the end of the cage row where manure cross conveyors remove it from the house to reduce ammonia and flies.

Manure belts are gear-driven, allowing individual decks to be switched off.

We use high quality galvanized steel sheets for easier cleaning and disinfecting of all partition walls, feed troughs, stands, and connecting profiles.

Room to move: Spring-loaded doors allow easy access to birds
