  • Different control systems to meet all market requirements of broilers both for ground and for reared in cages with reduced manual operation.
  • Allowed and facilitated access of the animal from the first hours of life and absolute uniformity of the product (uniformly refilled feeders). It does not require a manual feeder.
  • Impossibility of access of the animal in the pan feeder: basic requirement for cleaning and freshness of the food and increasing palatability of the product. Feeder that for its characteristics allows the quickest renewal of food on the market.
  • Adjustment of the maximum level facilitated in order to avoid food waste errors at the start of the cycle. Adjustment of the minimum level with absolute absence of food waste and “imprinting” training on the adult animal to completely avoid waste and maximize conversion rates also and especially in the adult animal.
  • Reduced dimensions of the pan feeder with greater feeding space for the animals. Ability to meet the highest demands cm/animal. Optimization of the cost/benefit ratio to increase efficiency of broiler feeding system. We recommend 100 broiler/pan feeder.
  • Filling of the pan feeders in a reduced time frame with little weight of the lines. Continuous stimulation of the animal to feed itself and absolute freshness of the food that is continually renewed.
  • Absence of impact trauma to the animal for the ease of oscillation of the pan feeder on the tube and lightness of the same with food. Very easy cleaning system at the end of the cycle.
  • Contributes to the animal slaughtering process.
  • Optimization of food conversion for all the genetics of broilers.
  • Possibility of partializing the use of the pan feeders (for example in breeding weaning) thanks to the individual closure system of each feeder.

MAREL POULTRY launching new products – Hall 7, Stand D010 

VIV Europe will be the occasion for Marel Poultry to launch a large number of exciting innovations. Once again, these revolutionary poultry processing solutions will set new benchmarks for the entire industry.
In the world of poultry processing, automation is advancing more than ever and this trend is even accelerated by the progressive global challenge to acquire personnel for poultry plants. Fully aware of this, Marel Poultry continues to focus heavily on developing new automated processes. Live bird handling More and more, consumers worldwide want to know about the origin of their food. As for poultry meat, they want to buy chickens which have grown slower and have had a humane treatment. Poultry processors who share this view are looking for an appropriate live bird handling system in their plant.
Marel Poultry likes to show at VIV Europe that Stork ATLAS is the solution that fits best in this respect. Adding value and carcass balance Around the planet the awareness of carcass balancing in the poultry industry is growing. People recognize that it makes no sense to use only the breast fillet of a chicken and downgrade the rest of the meat. By automating manual deboning operations, poultry processors can align with that trend and at the same time add value to their products, because deboned meat has more value than bone-in meat. Automation allows for upgrading of formerly exported frozen bone-in meat parts, turning them into attractive boneless products. That is why Marel Poultry keeps introducing fully inline deboning solutions, and VIV Europe is no exception to this.

RIVER SYSTEMS – Hall 12, Stand C052 

After Fieragricola and VIV MEA, River Systems will showcase also at VIV Europe 2018 its ultrasonic humidifier NEBULA® that can be connected to any small/medium capacity incubator.
The River Systems’ goal in developing NEBULA. was to create a system that can control humidity and keep it constant without affecting the temperature inside the incubator. Thanks to its continuous variable arrangement, NEBULA can supply energy to the water via a generator that produces microscopic droplets (fog effect). The supplied hose conveys the droplets to the incubator. Getting in contact with the heat, the droplets instantly evaporate creating humidity. NEBULA’s advantages are the following:

• User friendly;
• Accurate and reliable in measurement;
• Fast achievement of the desired humidity level;
• Prevents the eggs from being submerged by water;
• No part is prone to wear, as it can happen with the peristaltic pumps.

The Italian company River Systems will also introduce their anti-waste feeders COMPACTA, ARCUS and ARCUS GYRO, variations of the traditional hopper feeders. The distinctive assembly (whose design is registered) was expressly developed to allow birds to eat in a correct way, preventing them from flicking the feed and minimizing the feed waste.

ROXELL presenting their best products – Hall 12, Stand B116 

At the fair, visitors will find Natural Beak Smoothing for broiler breeders, a feeding system with a rough structure to smooth the beak of the birds. The rough structured bottom pan continuously controls the beak growth in a very natural way, just while the birds are eating. This new solution ensures a top performance of the birds and complies with animal welfare regulations.
