Pedigrow new features
The SALMET Pedigrow2 rearing system for pullets has undergone some improvements which led to a wider product range. 3 versions are now available:
Normal Pedigrow2
Pedigrow2 with raised legs
Pedigrow2  with raised legs and closed top tier
Pedigrow2 with raised legs
The Pedigrow system with raised legs gives birds access to the area underneath the system. The house floor beneath the raised system is used as litter area, i.e. it counts as usable area, depending on local regulations.  Cleaning underneath the system is also easier with raised legs. Glosing grids are available to close the space underneath the Pedigrow.

Pedigrow2 with raised legs and closed top tier 
The Pedigrow2-03 is mainly thought for markets in transition from cage to cage-free and that are producing layers for both markets. It is especially interesting for customers who want to build their first alternative system and have no birds available raised in multi-tier alternative systems.
The main feature is the closure of the top tier. This is realised by doors (A) and hang-in ramps (B) as this is done in the lowest tier. An additional floor (C) confines the top.

Pedigrow project South America

November 2018 we installed the first Pedigrow project in the southern part of America. It is the first rearing project in Latin America with SALMET.

In the Pedigrow 2 system are about 30.000 birds raised. The customer has chosen for the Pedigrow rearing system based on Salmet’ s proven quality and extended knowledge and support for the management of birds in aviary systems.  Jaime Garcia, Technical Poultry Husbandry Advisor of SALMET was there to assist the client with the start-up during the first weeks. The start and development of the birds is going well and  successful reared birds have been housed in the Salmet aviary layer farm.
