cides applied via spray. Houses are closed to prevent the
entry of people and animals.
New bedding - buckwheat husks at 2 kg/m2 - is blown
in to prevent the unnecessary entry of people or machines
that might result in contamination.
To ensure that bedding remains dry, the in house temperature is initially set to 38 C, and then lowered in stages
to 35 C and then 32 C.

Once houses are restocked, Dahirel is able to monitor
them and control temperatures and ventilation using a
smartphone or tablet. Via in-house cameras, bird movements can be monitored to observe any potential health
issues.
Water is treated with hypochlorous acid to break down
contamination, including microorganisms, and Dahirel
believes this is key. ■
