tail cutter

The birds are guided backwards through the tail cutter, with the guides centring the tail on both sides. This allows for a highly precise and controlled tail cut. The amount of tail to be removed can be adjusted to customers’ requirements. This improves yield as undesired loss of excess fat, skin or meat is prevented.
