Birds housed in a new multi-tier system have been achieving improved feed conversion rates since the unit's introduction into the United Kingdom, according to its manufacturer.
Vencomatic's Veranda Aviary system was recently installed for the first time in the UK at Elrig Farm, Newton Stewart in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. And Vencomatic says the egg producer who bought the unit, Stewart Gerrish, has reported that birds are using significantly less feed than they would on other multi-tier units. The Scottish producer is making about a pound a bird more on the Veranda Aviary, says Kevin Howse, sales director with Vencomatic Poultry UK Ltd.
