The proper treatment of live birds is very important as it has a great impact on the quality of the final product. PMJ takes animal welfare very serious and is continuously striving to provide the best possible environment for the birds by reducing stress to an absolute minimum.
The drawers are full automatically unloaded from the container, this ensures a smooth and quick process while ensuring minimal stress for the birds. The weight of each individual drawer is captured in order to provide insight of the flock. After weighing the full drawer continues to the hanging position where the birds are taken manually from the drawers and are hung on the killing line.
After hanging, the drawers and containers continue to the full automatic washing and stacking stations where they will be prepared for the next cycle. The drawers and container are handled separately to ensure a thorough cleaning of all surfaces.
