IMPROVING THE WELFARE OF THE BIRDS AND EFFICIENCY OF OUR REARING PROGRAMME
Over the years we have spent a lot of time and investment in rearing birds and felt that we could develop a product that had the criteria goal of:
- Improving efficiency
- Decreasing costs
- Becoming more user friendly
This led to the launch of our Bettws Hall Rearing System in 2014. The product was trialled, tested and tweaked for three years at our own rearing sites before launching on the market for others to purchase and realise that rearing could be made much easier!
It takes two people less than 15 minutes to set up the shell, which includes 4 panels, 50mm insulation, a bespoke tarpaulin and ratchets with two straining wires to hold securely in place. We have increased out average rear by 2.8% using these systems, whilst saving on gas usage along with a decrease in the use of medication.
The units allow for a consistent airflow and are 6'6'' at the highest point, easing the build and daily work within them. We use this bespoke, patented system for Pheasant, Partridge and Ducks; all with the same set up and a 60' x 40' run in each shed.
These systems were recently patented and have been recognised by our dedicated vet to maximise the welfare of our game birds. Not only do these systems benefit the game birds reared within them but also you and your keepers too.
Investing in these sheds allows you to increase your returns both financially and through welfare.
