How to Address the Effect of Heat on Slow Growing Chickens
The article begins by pointing out the growing market demand for slow-growing chickens that exists in several countries.
These chickens react differently to environmental temperature, since according to it, they adjust their intake, reducing feed consumption and growth with increasing temperature. However, with the cold, the energy needs increase, so the chickens eat more, entering more protein and therefore causing faster growth.
For all this, “Evaporative Cooling”, the most used in the world, can be used as a cooling technology.
The combination of air temperature, humidity and speed has a direct effect on the birds’ heat losses and their feed intake.
Control y Ventilacion, S.L. is a company of international renown within the industrial and livestock sector, for being a manufacturer of products within the evaporative cooling sector, such as the HUMIBAT, evaporative plastic cooler; or its NUCLEOS towers, Cooling Towers. In both products, the substrate in which the evaporative process takes place is a self-made plastic honeycomb, a honeycomb resistant both to physical and chemical attacks, and at the same time flexible, a honeycomb with a mesh structure, made of polyethylene High Density, and marketed under the names of PANAL C & V or in the case of being a drop separator, SEPARADOR C & V .
