At face value, poultry housing construction may seem like a fairly simple undertaking that does not require any technical skills or specifications. In reality, however, poultry housing construction is a fairly complex process and there are various technical specifications that you need to follow in order to create an optimal production environment.
Working with a professional poultry housing expert also assures you of quality housing with guaranteed longevity. Good poultry housing must have the right orientation, good ventilation built with sufficient space to suit the stocking density and must be well insulated. If you will be installing automation systems such as pan feeding systems, then you will definitely need the right expert to help you string this along.
Most of the South African poultry housing solutions providers generally work with big clients for large scale poultry production projects. Though there are some that can also handle small scale poultry production projects.
Below is a look at some of the top South African poultry housing solutions providers:-
