Eva-HD - Mise au point d’un automate de consommation alimentaire pour volailles « BIRD-e : Bird Individual Ration Dispenser-electronic »

Abstract : Feed efficiency depends on the genetic potential of animals, the characteristics of feed and their interactions. Due to technical constraints, genetic selection and nutritional studies requiring the evaluation of feed efficiency and behavior are carried out under conditions that are not representative of the breeding conditions, on animals placed in individual cages or in small groups. Significant progress can be expected in these two areas thanks to new technologies, allowing the automation of individual body weight measurements and feed consumption of poultry bred in groups on the ground. On the basis of a prototype feeder developed and patented by INRAE, this project has made it possible to develop a functional and reliable tool that can be used in research and development, by associating an automatic animal scale and a high-speed data management system with the feeder. This pre-industrial prototype is now available for the performance of precision experiments in genetics and nutrition, while respecting animal welfare.
