Jansen launches system to reduce poultry house litter

Jansen Poultry has launched a new system to mechanically remove litter in poultry houses

Many poultry farmers would like to reduce the litter level and improve its quality in their poultry houses. Jansen Poultry offers a solution through its mechanical Litter Removal System.

When using this system, litter levels in the house can be kept in check, litter is mechanically removed and dust and ammonia levels are considerably reduced.

The system works in the following way. In the walk ways of the house, a revolving steel cable with a scraper attached every ± 4m is installed. The back and forth movements of the scrapers move litter to the back of the house.

During cleaning of the house the cable with scrapers can be removed so that the system does not interfere with the cleaning process.
