Poultry

Biosecurity is becoming more and more important. Pathogens should not get onto the farm in the first place. In the stall itself, targeted hygiene measures prevent the spread of pathogens. 
In parallel to thorough stall cleaning and stall disinfection, personal hygiene is an essential component of a high standard of hygiene.

The sum total of all measures ultimately contributes to maintaining good health and thus to the wellbeing of the animals.

Hatchery

Coordinated process, transport and storage conditions for eggs are decisive for healthy chicks. Throughout the entire breeding process, hygiene is the be-all and end-all - it creates the necessary conditions for the optimal development potential of the chick.

The strictest hygiene guidelines for staff and daily cleaning and disinfection of the production facilities and transport crates are mandatory. Only under these conditions can vital and healthy chicks hatch.

Hygiene locks ensure that no pathogens get into the stall. The hygiene room and hygiene lock requirements differ depending on the stock size. The hygiene room is usually located in the entrance area of the stall building. Pens should only be entered wearing the operation's own protective clothing and protective boots. Staff and visitors should only enter the production area through a hygiene lock. Footwear and hands must be cleaned and disinfected effectively.

The incubator is first cleaned and then disinfected. These measures are important to prevent cross-infection within the food chain. Corners and joints must be cleaned particularly thoroughly, so there is no additional risk in the form of sources of infection. The cleaning and disinfection agents must be compatible with each other and must not damage the materials put into in the incubator.

Not just any solution - THE solution!

The animation shows the wide range of hygiene areas in hatchery practice and clearly illustrates that each area requires individual cleaning and disinfection measures.

EWABO also prepares an individual hygiene concept for your hatchery and provides solutions and products for every situation and task.

Laying hens

The different methods of rearing laying hens (barn, small group, free range and organic farming) have different hygiene requirements. The aim is the production of high quality, hygienic eggs.

Regular cleaning and disinfection measures can minimise or even eliminate the use of drugs and antibiotics.

All feed remains must be removed from the feed lines and water remains from the drink lines. The biofilm that forms on the inner walls of the drink lines from multi-vitamin and drug remains must be dissolved and kept in a suspended state. Then, the drink lines are flushed with clean water. It must be ensured that no residues form during cleaning and disinfection. These can serve to enrich bacteria. At the end of cleaning and disinfection, a mite treatment should be applied.

Regarding laying nests, hygiene and comfort come first for laying high quality eggs. The laid eggs roll from the nest directly onto the automatic egg belt and can therefore be transported undamaged to the entrance, where they are packed. Egg belts and laying nests are to be included in the cleaning and disinfecting process, in order to ensure optimal hygiene here as well. At the end of cleaning and disinfection, a mite treatment should be applied.

The manure is removed by the manure belt. (Plastic) grates separate the animals from the manure belt, so that there is no direct contact with the faeces. These grates do not have any sharp edges and offer the chickens’ feet a large contact surface. Excrement and dirt quickly fall through the grate and are separated from the animals. At the end of cleaning and disinfection, a mite treatment should be applied

Hatched for you!

The rearing of laying hens also requires individual cleaning and disinfection measures in the various areas. The graphic illustrates selected areas of application in daily rearing practice as examples.

Our practical experience helps us in the formulation of hygiene concepts and our cleaning and disinfection agents help to ensure the desired standard of hygiene on a sustained basis.

Fattening farms

Economically successful broiler fattening depends to a significant extent on feeding, rearing and animal health. The latter in particular includes regular cleaning and disinfection of the stall areas and facilities, pest control in the stalls and the loading of animals for transport to the slaughterhouse.

After each cycle, it is also important to clean and disinfect drink lines. This prevents the formation of biofilms and the spread of pathogens in this way.

Hygiene locks ensure that no pathogens get into the stall. The hygiene room and hygiene lock requirements differ depending on the stock size. The hygiene room is usually located in the entrance area of the stall building. In general, stalls should only be entered wearing the operation's own protective clothing and protective boots.  Above a certain size, operations must have set up a hygiene room with clear black-and-white separation, which allows for wet cleaning and disinfect if necessary. The animal areas should only be entered via the hygiene room.

An important component is the cleaning of ventilation ducts and fans, as they are inextricably linked with animal health. Ventilation should supply poultry with fresh air and extract air loaded with harmful gases from the stall. Here, the inlets in particular require special care.

In general the following applies:
Ventilation ducts and fans must be designed in such a way that rodents and wild birds cannot gain access.

Feed augers and the interior of the feed tubes must be flushed clean. The feeding pan trays are removed. The feed auger/spiral is turned on so that it rotates. By opening the feed auger in the line, the disinfectant is sprayed into the feed line using a curved spray lance. This should be done by opening the line from the feed balance tank to the end of the feed line. When doing so, the disinfection solution should be at a temperature of up to 60° C.
