Cablevey charged feed line – the key to profitable everyday feeding


Everyday feeding of replacement males and females in the broiler breeder production cycle is back after 30 years of skip-a-day feeding, thanks to the Cablevey Feeding System.

Chicks begin feeding from Cablevey’s state-of-the-art shallow-bottom pan equipped with an “overfill” component within minutes after being placed in the pullet house.

Everyday, restricted feeding usually begins within the second or third week. A feed space per bird is required so that all birds can eat at the same time.

A Cablevey weigh-fill system delivers a preset amount of feed to each receiving hopper. Then upon start-up the Cablevey charged line feeding system delivers feed to all pans simultaneously.

A Cablevey “even ingredient distribution,” feeding system operates continuously keeping the pans filled until the daily feed requirement has been delivered. The system shuts off automatically when the feed level reaches a switch in the bottom of the hopper, leaving the lines charged for the next day’s feeding.

A switch then signals the weigh-fill system to deliver a preset amount of feed to each hopper for the next feeding.


Here’s what Cablevey Feeding System pullet pan feeder can do for you!

• Improved uniformity and better production
• Substantial feed savings – up to 5 lbs. (2.27 kg.) per bird
• With a charged line, there’s feed in every pan when the system starts
• Minimal migration and calmer birds – chicks won’t associate people with feed
• Virtually no losses from smothering, piling or cannibalism
• Less management time and labor required at start-up and throughout the growth cycle
• Earlier sexual maturity of both male and females

Up to twelve additional chicks per breeder hen may be realized!

Feeding the sexes separately – the result: improved fertility and hatchability

Feeding the sexes separately – the result: improved fertility and hatchability

Male feed pans – one for every ten males – are suspended up
out of reach of the females. Adequate feed space is essential
so all makes can eat at the same time.
Cablevey’s Dual Feeding Systems for both males and
females have a proven “profit-edge” in getting more
saleable chicks per hen housed in broiler-breeder operations.


Here’s Why!
Even feed ingredient distribution
With a charged feed line there’s feed in every pan when the system starts
Elimination of migration
Adequate feed space so all males and females eat at the same time
High-speed feed delivery
Virtually no feed separation
Improved production, fertility and hatchability

Here’s How!
Males can be “control-fed” a special low-protein ration by winching their feed line up out of reach of the females. The Cablevey male pan feeder transports feed from the hopper to pans equipped with a 12-hole grill. It is desirable to provide one pan per 10 males.

The Cablevey female pan system conveys feed from receiving hoppers to pans equipped with a 16-hole grill that prevents the males from eating out of the female pan. Plan for 15 female breeders per pan.

A time clock activates the feeding cycles. On start-up, feed immediately drops into the pans of both the male and female systems. The systems operate continuously, keeping the pans filled, until the daily requirement has been delivered leaving the lines charged.

A switch then activates the weigh-fill systems for both the male and female systems to deliver the next day’s feed allotment to each of the feeding system hoppers.


“A Heavier Broiler with less feed!”

Hourly Feed Broilers to Cut Grow-out Costs

Cablevey’s automated broiler pan system – feeding several times daily and/or up to every hour around the clock – is attracting the attention of broiler producers looking for ways to reduce grow-out costs.

Broilers have been traditionally raised on a full-feed basis. Studies reveal that birds on this program tend to overeat, resulting in passage of undigested feed and the depositing of excess body fat.

Broilers fed 4 to 8 times per day generally produced a heavier bird on less feed, providing management was available to monitor the system.

With Cablevey’s “even ingredient distribution” feed transport system, hourly feeding of broilers around the clock eliminates frequent time clock adjustments for such factors as age of birds, mortality or weather changes.

Here’s how a Cablevey hourly feeding system works!

Cablevey’s “state of the art” shallow-bottom pan with the “over-fill” feature, which fills the pan completely, allows the birds to begin feeding within minutes after placement in the broiler house brooding area. Cablevey’s new pan design eliminates the need for feed lids, trays or paper.

Following the brooding period, start every-hour feeding by presetting the time clock to operate the Cablevey feeding system 5-10 minutes out of each hour.

The Cablevey charged feed line lets producers feed smaller quantities of fresh feed throughout the day with even ingredient distribution of feed in all pans.

A typical Cablevey broiler system with two receiving hoppers operating at 100’ (30.48 meters) per minute can deliver feed at the rate of 60 lbs. (27.22 kg.) per minute with virtually no feed separation – and, if moving “crumbles,” creates significantly less “fines” than other brands of feeding systems.

Here’s what an “hourly-feeding” Cablevey Feeding System can help you accomplish!


• Reduce “grow-out” costs by producing a heavier bird with less feed
• Instant feed distribution in every pan when the system is activated
• Fast feed delivery up to 100’ (30.48 meters) per minute
• Can handle systems with up to 1000’ (304.8 meters) of circuit length
• Virtually no feed separation
• Hourly feeding stimulates appetite
• Always fresh feed in front of the birds
• Delivers more whole pellets
