Business

Free range poultry is a narrow margins business with little room for trial and error, little difference between make or break and high system latency and limited flexibility

Solution

The System is a Cloud based solution that addresses the technical, operational and administrative obstacles that hinder the development and sustainability of pasture/free-range poultry.

Benefits

Our system implements full traceability of individual birds from hatching to point of sale, minimizes human or technical errors, optimizes feed conversion results, etc.

System

The system is made up of various components working together and performing on different levels - from chicken handling to resource planning and management.

Figures

By adopting the system, free range poultry farmers can look forward to real and measurable financial results.

The “Poultrics” Rural Poultry Management System is a Cloud based solution that addresses the technical, operational and administrative obstacles that hinder the development and sustainability of pasture/free-range poultry. The system tackles business critical issues such as feed conversion, water consumption, desegregation of consecutive fowl generations, strict nurturing times, genealogical traceability, thorough documentation, stock and warehousing of fowl products, financial statistics and analyses, etc. The RFID based identification, traceability and physical control through standard interfaces to external hardware, bring unparalleled levels of individual fowl handling, optimizing the workforce load and greatly reducing the time spent on mundane and manual labour intensive tasks.
Farming is a narrow margins business with:
  • Little room for trial and error
  • Little difference between make or break
  • Significant dependency on weather conditions
  • Labour intensive and consuming
  • High animal factor risks
  • Delayed problems manifestation
  • High system latency and limited flexibility
The technical solution we provide is centered around:
  • Breaking down the business to its constituents
  • Implementing automation and identification methods where applicable
  • Monitoring and recording of the respective parameters for each constituent
  • Combining and interpreting the recorded data
  • Generating the relevant reports, documents and other papers from the data
By adopting our solutions the poultry farmers can benefit from:
  • Full traceability of individual birds from hatching to point of sale
  • Minimal human or technical errors
  • Optimal feed conversion results
  • Increase in workforce efficiency
  • Adoption of rural poultry best practices
  • Improved planning and reduced lead times
The general financial results can be expected around:
  • 10+% reduction of manual labour costs
  • 30+% reduction of specialist labour costs
  • 5% improvement in feed conversion ratio
  • 20+% reduction in fowl health related losses
  • 5% reduction in rearing time
  • 60% improvement in expiry date management
  • 20+% reduction of fowl transport costs
