The Humane-Aire™ system extends from harvesting to transporting to processing. By handling the birds in a more humane way, processors minimize trauma and aggressiveness among the flock from the moment the birds staged from transport. Live birds are collected into specially designed cages, where they remain through CAS. Cages are offloaded in the production area, destacked then conveyed through the CAS tunnel. After the cage exits the tunnel, the stunned birds are transfered to the shackling conveyor. The cage is then washed, restacked and loaded back on the truck.
