Layer house systems with European standards, the height and dimensions of C3 and C4 cages improve not only the safety of animals but also the efficiency of the system.
1. Model C3, C4
This model nowadays called “C4 type” is definitely the most suited for the 21st century poultry production as it optimizes the ratio between density and shed’s volume thus best fulfilling the present days dimensional requirements.
This typology is also suited for sheds where the manure can be removed periodically thus allowing a better control of the inside environmental conditions as it reduces the creation of flies .
The simple installation required and lack of structural constrains makes it ideal for refurbishing of existing houses.
From experience with batteries in compliance with European standards, it has been found that the increase in height and size of the cages improve not only the animals’ wellbeing but also the “performance” of the systems.
2. “C3, C4” cages provided in 3 different models and solutions to meet diverse needs
The basic model without in cage manure drying facility is normally utilized in conjunction with an external manure drying
system such as MDS (see relevant information in the dedicated section).
Production technology has designed the floor horizontal wire support as an extension of the partition wires thus granting a reduce sagging of the floors even when the cage is fully occupied thus preventing the concentration of eggs in the center of the cage. Its design facilitate the installation and through a proper distribution of the load ensures a longer lasting of the partition.
The egg saving baffle is designed to allow a firm grip of the birds’ feet preventing accidental damaging of the eggs under it through accidental slipping.
The various options available make C3, C4 a very versatile model suited to answer the various needs of a modern poultry farming.
