Nesca is a poultry scale recently developed by Big Dutchman for integration into group laying nests (patent pending). The scale automatically determines the weight of hens visiting the nest to lay their eggs.
Nesca records the largest possible range of weights of a great number of hens, whether they are heavy, light or lazy, and without requiring any additional efforts from the staff. Nesca consists of a bottom wire mesh which rests on four load cells. The load cells transmit their results to the production computer via a weighing module.
- automatic weight determination;
- a lower number of manual weighings reduces the workload and saves time;
- the period for weighing can be defined individually, for example before feeding or during the main laying phase;
- automatic differentiation between males and females during weighing
