Poultry Farm Visit – Year 12 Agriculture Science

Date: August 24, 2016     Posted by: Carmel Cowley

Recently the Year 12 Agricultural Science class visited a RSPCA approved broiler farm, owned and operated by Mr Sam Fessey. The first thing we saw when we arrived was eight very long sheds (160m long). Before entering, Mr Fessey gave us a general rundown about the food and water sources, as well as the chicken food conversion ratio, the cost of the sheds and the expected expansion of the operation over the next few years. Upon entering the shed, we dipped our feet in Bedadine to prevent introducing diseases. Walking into the shed was an amazing sight as all you could see on the floor, was 49,000 cute fluffy chickens everywhere. Inside was very organised, with rows of food, water and perches for the chickens. Mr Fessey also taught us how to tell if the climate inside the shed suits the needs of the chicks. To end the trip, we visited the power room at the end of the shed, which is where the temperature is controlled and the intake of food and water is measured.
It was an amazing experience to see a broiler farm in action after learning about it in class and I think this visit helped to reinforce many of the key concepts.
