The next generation flexible and labor-saving breast deboning solution

Labor and fluctuating market demands have never been so challenging in poultry processing. The strenuous effects of COVID-19 forced various processors to take measures like implementing social distancing and partly shift to other output products. The pressure on poultry processors to be flexible with both their input and output has never been so apparent. Together with decreased dependency on labor and increased requirements on health and safety, processors are facing demanding times. Meyn answers these challenges with the release of their new Meyn Rapid Plus Deboner M4.2 featuring the new Semi-automatic loading carousel. This upgraded modular, configurable deboning solution takes the next step to meet the need for flexibility and laborsaving.

INTRODUCTION

Newcastle is a disease caused by a virus in the family of paramyxoviruses. It appears in three forms: lentogenic or mild, mesogenic or moderate and velogenic or very virulent, also called exotic Newcastle disease. The lentogenic strains are very widespread, but cause few disease outbreaks.1
It usually presents as a respiratory disease, but depression, nervous manifestations, or diarrhea may be the predominant clinical form.2
In low challenge countries, commercial broiler chickens are often facing the uncontrolled circulation of lentogenic (vaccine) strains, especially in high densely populated poultry areas. As a result, they may show subtle to overt respiratory signs, because of the inflammation of the trachea. As a result, flock uniformity will decrease. Ultimately, slaughterhouse condemnations may increase due to excessive airsacculitis.3

Being grounded during the Covid-19 pandemic, I'm unable to travel as I usually would to visit hatcheries. I stay in touch with customers via e-mail and phone, advising them on incubation issues. Fortunately, it's possible to log in to their hatchery management software, so I can analyse data such as climate graphs. But it's just not the same as a live visit – you can't see, smell or feel the real situation.
