Happy hens also exist without beak trimming!

In Denmark there has long been a total ban of beak trimming. Experiments show that feather pecking and cannibalism is significantly reduced in groups of egglaying hens – also with no beaks trimmed – when hens get offered roughage. The hens are healthier and hence more productive.

With the automatic distribution of roughage with JHminiStrø the allocation is made easy and all hens are continuosly activated several times a day.

See the system working in this video at a customer’s with 12,000 egglaying hens that have shown significant better health after the farmer started distributing roughage with a JHminiStrø system:
