Improved animal welfare was a priority when Meyn developed its new Multistage CO2 stunning system (a co-development with Praxair Inc.). Birds remain in the drawer or container during stunning, so that handling and transport of active birds is completely eliminated. This approach greatly reduces handling stress, and lowers the risk of injuring birds during the transportation process. Closed cabinet construction allows for CO2 concentration to be managed precisely at every stage of the process, resulting in a more humane stun and greatly improved end product quality.
The Meyn CO2 stunning system for poultry offers the twin benefits of improved animal welfare and enhanced product quality. By adding the CO2 reclaim option, customers also ensure a much more sustainable operation.
