VDL Jansen, a manufacturer of poultry equipment, has launched a new aviary system for rearing pullets. The RearMotion system allows pullets to move up and down in the system, before they have access to the house floor. According to the company, this makes the system much easier to manage, in comparison to traditional aviary rearing systems.
Brian van Hooff, chief executive at VDL Jansen, said: “The RearMotion has been designed, based upon the
knowledge coming from our many years of experience in aviary housing systems. We ensured optimum development of the hen, but at the same time thinking about user-friendliness.”
The front doors of the system can be opened in different positions, and there are foldable stairs and platforms in the system. During catching or vaccination, the front doors can be fully opened, and the foldable platforms are used to create compartments in the system, the company said.
Key features of RearMotion include:
• In-system stairs can be put in three positions
• Front doors can be put in multiple positions
• Foldable platforms creating compartments
• Possibility to stand in the system
• System easy accessible for inspection
• Durable design and materials
