LEO, the high performance feeding system The new LEO broiler pan feeding system, with centralised feed level adjustment, represents a major technological innovation, specially developed to meet the needs of modern poultry management.Nowadays it is important to choose feeding systems which minimise feed waste, require less labour and help to maintain excellent hygienic conditions for the birds. Although it joins the ranks of automatic auger-type broiler feeders, LEO is different because it has been designed and constructed to meet specific objectives: to feed day-old chicks without the need for supplementary feeders; to teach chicks to feed from outside the pan; to reduce feed waste of older birds; to convert the chick feed pans to grower feeders with one single movement for the whole line.   LEO, right from day one LEO feeds young chicks right from the start without the need of providing supplementary pans or trays. Thanks to the formation of a plentiful cone of feed and a pan with a height of only 7,5 cm, day old chicks can feed without difficulty.   LEO, no more walking about in the pan LEO teaches the chicks to remain outside the pan, thanks to the feed-retaining arches which, from day 3 onwards, prevent the chicks from getting into the pan.   LEO minimises feed waste Testing the LEO feeder on commercial farms showed that it reduces feed waste regardless of the age of the birds. The specially designed retaining arches encourage the birds to feed from the centre of the pan, preventing them from pushing the feed towards the rim, a vital consideration in the prevention of waste. The feed level can be easily changed using the regulator ring which offers 5 setting options. As a final precaution, a 4 mm antiwaste lip inside the rim of the pan prevents any actual spillage of feed.   LEO reduces labour LEO allows the poultryman to convert the whole line with one movement. The special SKA patented system using a lifting winch allows the situation to be changed from a plentiful supply of feed for young chicks to controlled feeding for the remainder of the growing period. At the end of the flock cycle, a one-handed movement of the unhooking switches returns the feed pan ready for chick feeding again.
