PICKBLOCK

Pickblock

What is PICKBLOCK?

PICKBLOCK is an innovative feed block designed for poultry to peck. It supports the natural behaviour of rearing laying hens, broilers and turkeys.

Produced using high-quality cereals and minerals PICKBLOCK offers poultry a destructible and ingestible form of stimulation that effectively limits abnormal behaviour such as feather pecking and cannibalism.

Manufactured under pressure and without the need for chemical hardening agents, the compact firm structure of PICKBLOCK ensures optimum, sustainable pre-occupation of poultry.


Features and benefits

QUALITY ASSURED:

All PICKBLOCK products are certified as animal feed (GMP+ FSA secured). An HACCP concept is integrated into the good manufacturing practice. This ensures that all PICKBLOCK products are regularly tested for undesirable substances (including dioxin, heavy metals, etc.). In addition, active monitoring is carried out in accordance with paragraph 2 (2) of the Poultry Salmonella regulation.

HANDY:

The hole in the middle makes the 5 kg PICKBLOCK very handy. The PICKBLOCK can be easily hung up or fixed in place.

HARD STRUCTURE:

PICKBLOCK is manufactured in a carefully controlled efficient production process without the addition of chemical hardening agents. The compact, solid structure is essentially achieved by means of high mechanical pressure.

CAN ONLY BE PECKED:

The hard, durable strength of PICKBLOCK ensures that animals often consume small amounts, resulting in low consistent intakes.

FIBRE COMPONENTS:

The fibrous fine and coarse components (including cereal grains) create a strong visual appeal for the poultry.

NO CHEMICAL BINDERS:

No chemical binders are used to cure the products.

CONSISTENT INTAKES:

Daily intakes are consistent at a maximum of 3 g per head/day.

INCREASED AGILITY:

The consistent low intakes and regular pecking of PICKBLOCK occupies the animal resulting in a lasting positive effect of well being. They are much more agile, reward-oriented and more in motion.

OTHER ACTIVATING MATERIALS, such as wall blocks made of aerated concrete or other building materials, are not subject to the strict requirements of animal feed. These supposedly cheap alternatives must be critically questioned with regard to the risk of residue of undesirable substances.
