Modular loading favoured for Ontario chicken farms

Ontario is looking at the cost of catching up to other jurisdictions when it comes to chicken catching.

Ontario and Quebec, the largest chicken-producing provinces in Canada, don’t use “modular systems” for catching chickens. Yet they have been widely used in Western Canada for some time and in Nova Scotia, not to mention in the southern United States, where they have been accepted for 30-40 years. An industry-wide committee studying the feasibility of implementing a modular loading and handling system is examining the costs for Ontario farms and processing plants.
