Bridolay™ trough feeding system
Bridolay trough feeding system for automatic feeding for commercial layers
Bridolay™ is an automatic trough feeding system for chickens that lay eggs for consumption from 18 weeks. The feeding line with trough eliminates selective feed pecking, a common problem with other feeding systems such as chain feeders. An auger within the Bridolay trough feeding system mixes the feed and rapidly distributes it through the trough. This prevents chickens from eating during the feed distribution. The auger ultimately produces a balanced and even feed composition for every hen.

Features of the Bridolay trough feeding system
Exactly the right feed composition
The auger that distributes the feed throughout the trough has another useful function. The auger rotates and mixes the feed while it is being shifted. When it stops, a consistent feed portion is ready for each chicken. The auger shape then distributes the feed automatically in small feed compartments.
With Bridolay, each hen receives the same amount of feed, wherever they are in the house, as determined by the nutritionist. That is ultimately good for their overall health and productivity. If a hen eats selectively, the amount of starch can be reduced and protein and minerals increased. That means a risk of unbalanced results.

- SPECIAL FEED TROUGH SHAPE
The special deep shape of the trough prevents feed from being wasted.
Agrifirm and Bonda liquid feed mix is always combined with a Bridolay feeding system. The dry and liquid feeds are mixed in the trough by the Bridolay auger. The wet feed mix could come into contact with the metal, but thanks to the special stainless steel design, the system offers excellent protection against corrosion.
The Bridolay automatic trough feeding system is designed for poultry farms with an aviary, free range, barn, or organic egg production set-up.
