10 February 2020, at 8:33am

Attention to detail during the final phase of production ensures that broilers are transferred to the processing plant in optimal condition; meeting processing parameters and minimising the impact on bird welfare. Having a preprocessing checklist in place will ensure a smooth and successful transition from the farm to the processing plant.

A pre-processing checklist should emphasise:

  • Proper preparation and catching procedures
    • Correct bird handling.
    • Suitable environmental conditions.
    • Appropriate use of equipment.
    • Monitored feed withdrawal.
  • Well-planned transportation and processing plant delivery.
