The future of egg production
LPC has welcomed the completion of the new Aviary free-range rearing and free-range production sites located in Temora, NSW. The rearing farm currently has 2 sheds; housing 34,000 birds from Day 1 to 16 weeks. The production site is in full operation, housing 240,000 birds over 7 sheds in a new aviary free-range system.
As part of birds roaming outside of the house, we use straw and equipment to encourage the birds outside and to keep the hens active.
Whilst hens are inside the houses, it is also important that they are kept busy. With the installation of raised platforms, LPC is encouraging the hens to move around the house, jumping up to the perching and raised platforms, and then flying back down to the feeding and drinking areas.
As part of our daily egg collection process, eggs are transported to the central egg collection areas for packing. The high quality eggs from our production facilities are sold to customers every day.
Eggs are daily transported for future sales to customers via our refrigerated transport equipment to ensure the eggs are kept at the best quality for the consumer.
