Oxair humane poultry euthanasia

Thursday, 01 October, 2020 | Supplied by: Oxair Gas Systems Pty Ltd



Gas separation specialist Oxair has developed a nitrogen-based system, which is designed to humanely euthanise egg-laying poultry at the end of life.

The new method gradually puts the birds to sleep within 2–3 min after injecting them with nitrogen. At no time do the birds regain consciousness or experience distress.

The equipment can be mounted on a portable system enabling ease of transport, and large and small models can be custom built as per customer requirements.

This removes the costs involved for farmers that ship the birds off to processing plants, which is often commercially unviable.

In addition, the application is not restricted to poultry and can be successfully used for other small animals such as commercially farmed rabbits.
