Live Bird Handling

Safe and efficient transport of your birds

Protect Your Live Bird Intake

Transporting live birds from the farm to the processing plant means moving the birds from a safe environment to new unfamiliar places. Animal welfare must be a main focus throughout bird handling, and environmental stress must be minimized during catching, transport, lairage and processing. What is good for animal welfare is also good for product quality.

In addition to animal welfare, there are a number of factors included in good live bird management that must be taken into account when choosing a live bird handling system. What transport and processing capacities do you need? What particular farm conditions do you face? What truck facilities are available? Do you need to live up to specific legal regulations? How much automation do you wish to implement? What biosecurity measures do you need to look into? And maybe most importantly, how do you minimize the risk of product quality loss during live bird handling?

Design Based on Your Requirements

When choosing a new live bird handling system, the list of requirements is long, the decision making is complex and a wrong decision can have major consequences. More than 25 years of developing and installing live bird handling systems worldwide makes BAADER a well-prepared and skilled partner capable of analysing your requirements and guiding you in the decision process.
