Winter is coming! Get ready NOW…

As the season starts to change and the cool fall air refreshes us after the long summer, poultry growers should take this time when the weather is typically cooperative to prepare for winter, when the weather can cause substantial problems. At this time of year, growers usually remember important maintenance steps such as tightening up your poultry house to prevent unwanted air leaks and checking brooders, primary minimum ventilation fans and vents for optimum operation. There are a number of newsletters to be found on these common wintertime readiness requirements at www.poultryhouse.com.

Hurricane Isaac — Standby Generator Preparation
Aug 27th, 2012 by Grow With Tyson

Standby Generators – PDF Download

Hello All,

As some of you in the poultry belt (especially East Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and South Alabama) prepare your homes and poultry farms for the effects of Hurricane Isaac, there is one particular item that may be of utmost importance. This item is the standby power generator on your poultry farm. There have been instances where the loss of power on farms claimed as many or more birds due to generator failure than the actual storms themselves. Making sure that your standby power generator and equipment is ready to run for days on end is extremely important. Cycling your generator once a week is usually not a problem, but what happens to a generator when it is called to run continuously for 1-7 days or more is a different challenge. Our most comprehensive newsletter on Standby Generators is attached to help you prepare your farm for an extended power loss. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Top Priorities:

  • Diesel Fuel & Fuel Filters

Thank you and good luck!

Sincerely,

NPTC Team
