AUTOMATIC LOADING IS IMPROVING ITS IMPORTANCE DAY BY DAY
Technology is accompanying our lives and our business more and more and so, as is it possible to red in the following article mention, chicken automatic loading is improving and expanding its importance day by day. In fact: “Perdue … announced its further improving the final hours of its chickens’ lives with a more than $20 million investment in the installation of a fully integrated bird transportation system at its Milford, Delaware plant. Rather than being handled by humans, the Perdue chickens in this system will be moved from barns to slaughter by machinery.
‘Any time you have human-animal interaction, you have the potential for abuse to happen,’ said Lauri Torgerson-White, an animal welfare specialist at Mercy For Animals. Countless videos online show the mishandling of birds by catchers, who are trained to grab chickens by the legs, several animals in each hand, before putting them in crates for transport. ‘Not everybody knows how to handle animals,’ said Mike Levengood, Perdue's chief animal care officer. The introduction of the new system will help the company avoid the problem entirely on the farms where it’s used. Perdue is starting to use a catching machine, which slowly advances down the length of a barn, nudging birds onto conveyor belts and then into roomier crates than the company previously used. The crates are moved by a forklift onto a newly-designed trailer, which protects the birds from the elements during the drive to the processing plant.”
