Hi-Lo Pan Feeder

Joanne Lim

When it comes to poultry, we wanted our birds to be in excellent growth and health. A happy bird is a well-fed bird. ​A Two-Stage pan performance inside one complete feeder is the idea behind Cumberland’s revolutionary Hi-Lo Pan Feeding System. The Hi-Lo pan feeder represents a unique concept in the poultry industry, using one feeder to take from day-old through adult. The first ten days of a broiler chick is critical. The Hi-Lo pan feeder can start on the house floor, presenting a lip height of 2.1” (5.33cm), the average height of traditional “chick lids”. As the bird grows, the feeding line needs to be raised. The Hi-Lo is able to expand into a 3.5” (8.89cm) deep pan. The higher wall and feed saver lip prevent waste from raking and spill out. Putting the birds’ comfort and farmers’ convenience at first place, the Hi-Lo is thoughtfully engineered for assuring both farmers’ and birds’ satisfaction.

Key Features

Smooth Edge Ring Design
The high wall reduces feed waste from birds’ pecking, saving feed cost and increasing FCR. Smooth finishing ensures healthy and beautiful birds without scratches or rashes. Fit your feeding style the best. Low level for accurate feeding control, high level for energy cost efficiency.

Feed Depth Control
Measures directly from the bottom of the pan, assuring all birds a consistent and even supply for fresh feed.

360° Action
The drop tube and grill allow a play in 360°, reducing bruising and injury to the birds

Feed Depth Control
This prevents feed wastage from pecking, maximizes the FCR.

Telescoping Drop Tube
The telescoping drop tube automatically compensates for uneven floor conditions. The drop tube is available in either the standard one piece or optional two pieces design

Drying and Heat Treatment with Cimbria’s DANTOASTER

Acelyn Goh

A combination of theoretical know-how and practical experience has made Cimbria a recognized supplier of these heat treatment systems.

The Cimbria Dantoaster is increasingly used as a high capacity low-cost technology for heat treatment and can often be used as an alternative to more energy intensive technologies.

Designed for Flexibility

The design of the Dantoasteris optimized for multiple applications such as high temperature grain drying, sterilization, gelatinization and toasting. The Dantoaster will ensure a value-added end product regardless of whether it is used for production of feed for pigs, cows, mink, chickens, pet food, or in the food industry for products such as breakfast cereals, sprinkles etc.

The Dantoaster has also proven itself as an energy-ecient and compact drying solution for dicult products such as lime stone and manure, just as extremely wet – almost liquid – product can be handled, exploiting the system’s qualities of high capacity and low energy consumption.

Meeting Increasingly Stringent Requirements

Sterilizing raw materials used in food production leads to a thousand-fold reduction in the germ count. This results in a product which is not only much better suited for storage, but also much less prone to the development of mycotoxins. The process enables a manufacturer to meet the increasingly stringent requirements for better methods of storage and product quality.

Toxins In Fodder And Food

Micro-organisms and their waste products in food and animal fodder represent a serious problem for both human and animals. Such problems include salmonella in chickens, aatoxin in dried fruit, and ochratoxin in pig feed. Today, it is already common practice to sterilize large quantities of corn for inclusion in many diferent feed products in order to minimize the risk of sickness occurring in animals during their critical period of growth. Aquaculture is another example of an area that is receiving an ever-increasing amount of attention, since requirements for quality feed also play a vital role here.

All You Need to Know about R-Value in 5 mins

Acelyn Goh

R-Value is a measurement of resistance to heat flow throughout a given thickness of material; the higher the R-Value, the greater the resistance.

It is the overall of an insulation material to resist (retard) heat flow, taking into account both the thermal conductivity (K value) and the thickness of an insulation material. It is used to calculate overall heat transmission coefficients and is expressed as m² ºK/W.

What does R-Value mean to your farm business?
Livestock need an optimal living environment to grow. Structure with Higher R-Value insulation will maintain farm house temperature at a comfortable zoon much better, and maximize energy savings, which brings a better productivity. That’s why GSI building crafted its structure with top heat resistance profile, for example the ceiling and sidewalls with a standard R-Value as high as 12 (higher R value is optional upon customer request).

Thanks to GSI’s superb heat resistance performance, livestock procure optimal living conditions, water and electricity cost will be minimized, and farm owner will enjoy a higher ROI in the long run. Investing in GSI structure is a wise choice.

TECNO Europe Layer Farms Project Visit

Acelyn Goh

On the 23rd of May 2017, AGCO GSI designated a representative, Mr. Ong Cheng Beng, to 3 TECNO Layer farms in Shrewsbury (UK), Lombardy (Italy) and Laer (Germany). The trip was joined up with some of CP China’s representatives and they spent a period of 23 days in these countries.

The objective of this trip was to observe, study, and contemplate the ways these farms are managed. During this trip, a few factors were focused on, such as the layers systems, ventilation systems, and the overall farm set ups. Griffiths Oaklands, UK, has been applying Tecno’s cages for over 20 years and CP China was very interested to analyze the current condition and longevity of the cages.

It was found that the eggs production of free range birds contains more nutrition compared to caged birds, but in terms of production quantity, caged birds are still in the lead, which is of the reasons why free range eggs have a higher price compared to caged eggs. As the majority of today’s consumers are more concern about health benefits, the free range bird concept will surely be
practiced in local mass production farms in the near future.

The observation highlight was on the minimal ventilation system that was applied in these farms. It is important that the livestock gets the right amount of natural air regardless the cold weather outside the farm house. This minimal ventilation system will be taken into consideration and is applicable in other cold countries. Besides that, it can also be beneficial and effective in hot climate
region during brooding and raising baby chicks, by utilizing outside temperature.

This trip has benefited us with some good information. With the study and data collected, we can begin preparation and innovation for the next decade.
