In the process of raising chickens, many farmers tend to pay attention only to the environmental and sanitary inspections in the chicken houses. Regarding the environmental management outside the chicken house, it is often not reasonable science. In fact, if the external environment of the chicken house is bad, the same will also threaten the healthy growth of the chickens. Moreover, the harsh external environment also creates conditions for disease transmission, so the environmental management outside the house is just as important. The author will talk about the key to the external environment of the chicken house using chicken battery cages:
1. During the daily handling process, the farmers must pay attention to the cleaning operations outside the chicken house, and ensure that there are no garbage, no weeds, no debris, no residual feathers, no dead chickens, no residual feces, etc. The presence of dirt reduces the presence of bacteria and pathogenic microorganisms in the house.
2. Regarding the roads of chicken farms, farmers should also pay attention to cleaning operations. Conditional farmers can disinfect them once a day with quaternary ammonium salt disinfectants. Local farmers within 5 meters around the chicken houses should also be disinfected every week. The operation, claiming that farmers can spray disinfection with 3% caustic soda solution. Use 1 kg of disinfectant solution per square meter of floor.
3. There are a lot of feces in the chickens every day. In addition to paying attention to the cleaning of the manure in the chicken house, the farmers should also pay attention to the treatment after the manure is cleaned outside the chicken house, and advocate that the farmers will dig the septic tank near the chicken house. The general size is 7 cubic meters per 1000 chickens. Note that the creation position of the septic tank should be selected in the downwind direction 30 meters away from the chicken house. The removed feces are placed in the pool every day, and the pool is covered with a plastic sheet to prevent fecal exudation and fermentation.
Fourth, if there are more chicken farms around the farmer's house, then it is necessary to pay more attention to the transmission of the disease. Do a good job of avoiding all the work. For the local chicken farms and chicken houses that are relatively close to the chicken farms, in order to control cross-infection, it is necessary to avoid the mutual breeding between the farmers and the chickens in other chicken houses. The staff and the staff were instigated to do a good job of segregation.
The above four points are the authors telling the farmers that when using poultry farming equipment, the management of the environment outside the chicken house is the key.
