What to consider while planning a successful integrated layer project for pullets?

While planning an integrated layer project the most important issue is to secure the ability to supply a uniform quantity of eggs to the market at any given time.

The best way to do so is by constructing one pullet house that will provide three cycles of mature pullets for three layer houses during a year period. This method ensures uniform level of egg supply, during the year, and optimal usage of the pullet house.

An optimal integration layer project balances between production results, operating costs and biosecurity standards.

An outstanding layers integration project includes an entire production chain, from seed to final product.

Attention to biosecurity

In order to meet strict biosecurity standards, it is highly recommended to locate the project within a three-kilometer diameter around the center of the layer farm.

The pullet farm should ideally be positioned 1.5 km from the layer farm and consist of one pullet house for every three-layer houses. The pullet house should be equipped with fully automated feeding, drinking, heating, manure removing and climate control.

The layer farm will include three layer houses for each pullet house, and should be equipped with fully automated feeding, drinking, egg collection, manure removing, ventilation and climate control.

Once completed, eggs will be conveyed to the packing-center where they will be graded and packed, ready to be distributed.
