How to maintain continuous ventilation in broiler cage? In fact, when raising chickens in broiler cages, most of us only pay attention to the temperature in the chicken cages. Broiler cage farmers usually do not ventilate the house to reduce the temperature of the house and reduce heating costs. It is speculated that insufficient ventilation in the house will lead to an increase in water sickness in the middle and late stages of broilers.
Why keep ventilating is important?
In the first year of life, assuming that broilers cannot pass normally, various diseases will occur, so it is necessary to ventilate the broiler cages on time.
The life activities of broilers are inseparable from oxygen. It is very important to ventilate the broiler cage while ensuring the normal temperature of the broiler cage. Ventilation can provide satisfactory oxygen to the broilers, promote their migration, and maintain the health of the chicken and the conversion rate of the flowing feed. Especially when we are using broiler cages now, ventilation should be done frequently due to its high density. Ventilation can remove moisture, ammonia, dust and waste heat from the house and provide sufficient fresh air for the broilers.
Poor ventilation and high ammonia concentrations can cause severe losses to production. Ventilation is the focus of the post-production management of broiler chickens. In the later stage, the body weight, feed intake and excretion of livestock and poultry are large. The carbon dioxide they exhale, the body heat they excrete, the water they excrete, the ammonia gas in the chicken manure accumulated in the house, and the dust floating in the air in the house, etc. If it cannot be discharged out of the house in time, the living environment in the house will become worse and worse, which will not only seriously affect the growth rate of broilers, but also increase the loss rate of broilers. The broiler cages must be clean during breeding.
Methods of keeping ventilating
It is necessary to choose mechanical ventilation for broiler cages, which can be divided into horizontal ventilation and longitudinal ventilation according to the direction of indoor air flow. There should be no dirt near the chicken cage, the pipes of the chicken cage feeding equipment should be kept clean, and some parts of the equipment need proper lubricating oil to ensure the normal operation of the broiler cage.
