REDUCING POULTRY PROCESSING WASTE MAXIMIZES YIELD, PROFITS

Poorly agitated water during
scalding will make plucking
harder, and this can result in
carcass damage.
Eduardo Cervantes López

mize quality issues.
Any birds separated from the
rest of the flock during harvesting must be allowed sufficient
space. If crowded together, birds
will start to fight for space,
scratching and pecking each other, and damaged skin can lead to
rejected carcasses.
Birds should always be captured by the body, holding the
wings close to it, but without
putting too much pressure on
the abdominal air sacs. Studies
have shown that, in flocks where
broilers are caught by the body,
the number of rejected birds is
50 percent lower compared with

birds caught by the legs.
Cages and containers must
be in good condition and of an
appropriate size, ensuring that
not only are broilers not harmed,
but are also comfortable during
transport and while waiting at
the processing plant.
Filled cages should be kept
inside the poultry house until all
are ready to be loaded. In this
way, maximum advantage will
be taken of circulating air, minimizing possible suffocations.

Transportation to the
processing plant
To avoid mortalities during
transport, measures must be taken to dissipate evaporative heat.
Depending on environmental

conditions, fans can be placed at
the end opposite to where birds
are loaded, to help to keep them
cool and supply them with air.
Additionally, a mobile awning
can be erected where birds are
loaded. If made from mesh, this
can reduce light penetration but
still allow air flow.
The microclimate within
the truck needs to be carefully
monitored if dead on arrivals are
to be prevented.
It should not be assumed that
birds that reach the lairage alive
will also reach the overhead
hangers alive. In many plants, it
can take up to four hours from
arrival to complete processing,
so the lairage must be properly
ventilated to prevent suffocation
