Border Poultry Layer Barn

In the Fraser Valley of British Columbia, lies the success story of Border Poultry Farm. United Agri Systems partnered with Border Poultry to revolutionize their operations by building a cutting-edge free run barn with white layers. This project aimed to enhance bird welfare, increase automation, and optimize energy efficiency.

Border Poultry Farm’s goal was to transition from conventional cages to a cageless free run system.  United Agri System designed and executed an innovative free run barn equipped with state-of-the-art technologies to improve both poultry welfare and farm productivity.

There was no stone unturned in selecting the most advanced and efficient equipment for the project. The installed equipment included:

– Jansen Aviary (Laymaxx Nest) (Comfort 2.0 Aviary) (Auto-Shov Scrapers) – These modern aviaries provide ample space for the birds to roam, lay eggs comfortably, and access automated scraper systems for efficient waste management.

– Chore-Time (Turbo Fans) (Dura-Therm Box Heater) (Cooling Pads) (Model 90 Flex Auger) – These components play a vital role in maintaining the barn’s temperature, especially during extreme weather conditions, ensuring the well-being of the birds.

–  Fancom Push Fans – Strategically placed push fans ensure optimal air circulation, maintaining a healthy environment for the birds and supporting their growth.

– Better Air Circulating Fans – Additional air circulating fans optimize airflow within the barn, further enhancing the overall ventilation and bird comfort.

– CBM Lighting – Carefully curated lighting systems create an ideal environment for the birds, supporting their natural patterns and enhancing their productivity.

– Lubing Watering – The Lubing watering system delivers a constant supply of clean water to the birds, promoting hydration and health.

– VDL Feed Chain – The VDL feed chain ensures a steady and efficient supply of feed to the birds, promoting uniform growth and minimizing wastage.

– Lubing T-500 Rod Conveyor – The Lubing T-500 Rod Conveyor streamlines egg collection, simplifying the grader’s task and improving the efficiency of shipping free run eggs.

– Agro Logic Load Cells – The Agro Logic Load Cells help monitor and regulate feed consumption, ensuring optimal feed conversion and minimizing resource wastage.

– TPI Ventum Inlets – These inlets facilitate proper ventilation control, maintaining a comfortable atmosphere for the birds and supporting their respiratory health.

The Border Poultry Farm’s barn project by United Agri System has already started reaping significant long-term benefits:

– More Automation: With the integration of advanced automation systems, the farm can now manage various processes efficiently, reducing the need for manual intervention and human labor.

– Increased Energy Efficiency: The implementation of energy-efficient technologies, such as LED lighting and advanced ventilation systems, has led to reduced energy consumption and lowered operational costs.

– Better Bird Health: The barn’s design, enriched with state-of-the-art equipment, ensures that the birds experience improved welfare, which translates to healthier and more productive flocks.

Several factors influenced Border Poultry Farm’s decision to collaborate with United Agri System:

– Expertise in the Layer Market: United Agri System’s extensive experience and knowledge in the layer market, particularly in ventilation, controls, and bird health, convinced the customer that they were the right partner for this transformational project.

– Proven Track Record in Building Projects: United Agri System’s successful history of executing similar building projects and their ability to deliver high-quality results were crucial factors in the decision-making process.

– Right the First Time: Border Poultry Farm valued United Agri System’s commitment to getting the job done right the first time. The farm sought a reliable partner who could ensure a smooth and seamless transition to the new barn system without unnecessary delays or complications.

The Border Poultry Farm’s free run barn project stands as a testament to the power of innovative thinking and sustainable practices in modern poultry farming. United Agri System’s expertise, combined with cutting-edge technology and an unwavering commitment to animal welfare, has resulted in a remarkable transformation. This project serves as an inspiration to the entire poultry industry, showing that progress and profitability can go hand in hand with compassion and environmental responsibility. As Border Poultry continues to thrive with its new sustainable model, it sets a shining example for others to follow in the pursuit of excellence in poultry farming.
