is critical to be a leading Poultry Grower.

Great Growers pay attention to the details. While the challenges of competing in the aggregator tournament system may lend some a sense of lack of control, great growers embrace these challenges and constantly look for the edge over their competition.

It takes a high degree of personal pride to overcome the daily challenges of the grower. You can take control and ownership of your growing farm.

You can outperform others in taking care of your growing broiler chickens, your growing houses including maintenance of the ventilation and climate systems and management of the quality of the environment and feed delivery. And you have to most control over Biosecurity.

Delivering great Biosecurity provides you the edge over your competition. So why do so many growers leave biosecurity in mortality management up to others?

Why would you let someone else manage mortality for you?

Why are you introducing a third-party company to your growing farm to dispose of your mortality? Even if your freezer is Biosecure, you have a gaping hole in your Biosecurity program when you allow a third-party company onto your farm. Companies in the business of mortality pickup must visit countless farms in order to be in business. So, when you invite a company to provide freezer pickup on your site, you are inviting someone who has just been on countless other farms, putting your biosecurity at risk. What risk are you picking up when they are picking up your freezer?

Why are you still composting?

For growers still composting, you are living with a lessened personal quality of life and so are your broilers. With composting you are exposing yourself to odor, insects from mortality decomposition and scavenger animals preying on your mortality. Composting disposal leaves you open to scavengers. Even the use of In-Vessel Composting cannot insure you the highest levels of biosecurity and you don’t eliminate the spread of disease.  With In-Vessel composting, the decomposition process takes several weeks.  During that time, in addition to the cost of labor, you are opening the vessel back up, potentially re-exposing your growing farm to the source of contamination.

To truly eliminate the problem, you need to find the fastest possible method to remove the contamination… And you need to be able to remove that threat without adding the threat of a third party being on your farm.

Thermal Disposal Systems

Use a sterile process that kills all viruses and bacteria in a matter of hours. That means you don’t have to keep expired birds on your property while you’re accepting new chicks. And you’ll stop contaminants from spreading to your flock, the soil, or local water supply. This way, you’ll stay on top of your biosecurity requirements, so you can protect your flock and your operation.

Start the cycle at the end of the day, and it’s done by the morning. No more waiting for nature to take its course, or for someone to remove carcasses from a freezer. No more emptying, cleaning, and refilling bins. Instead, you’ll save time, labor, and cost, so there’s more left over for other areas of your operation.

Just fill the machine, choose your desired level of dehydration, press a green button, and you’re good to go. The cycle runs independently, and the byproduct is removed automatically. There’s nothing complicated to learn. And no bulking agents, or vendor schedules to manage. You’ll cut one more thing off your list—without sacrificing biosecurity—so you have more time for the details that matter. 

Thermal Disposal

What makes the AgriTech Thermal Disposal System different?

Traditionally, growers have disposed of animal mortalities using incinerators, freezers, bin composters, and in-vessel composters. Each of these methods has significant drawbacks, including the risk of contagion, scavengers, odor, and cost of labor. Thermal Disposal revolutionizes deadstock disposal, using proprietary thermal sterilization technology to speed the composting process and destroy pathogens. No odor, no scavengers, and no more worries about what to do with your animal carcasses. Compared to in-vessel composting units, AgriTech Thermal Disposal System is:

  • less expensive to run and requires less labor
  • the only solution that is 100% bio-safe
  • 30 times more efficient than in-vessel composters
  • able to reduce waste by half, a reduction six times better than the leading competitor
  • a turn-key solution that’s ready-to-go as soon as it’s delivered
Why is this type of composting better?

AgriTech composts in a contained environment, allowing you to closely regulate the conditions in which the deadstock is being broken down. Controlling the temperature, moisture level, and oxygen in the composter makes the process faster and safer.

Does the AgriTech sterilizer produce an odor?

Our sterilizer produces no odor, only odorless steam.

How long does the composting process take from start to finish?

The AgriTech Thermal Disposal System can process up to 2000 pounds (2 tons) of animal mortalities in a matter of hours.

Can the AgriTech Thermal Disposal System be used year-round?

Unlike burial or composting, the AgriTech Thermal Disposal System operates in even the coldest temperatures. Being able to run year-round keeps growing operations cleaner and safer.
