 This research evaluated the effect of various cagetechnologies of rearing broiler chickens on the productivity of poultry.Experimental studies were carried out under conditions of poultry farm “Reftinskaya”.For the experiment 2 groups of broilers of COBB–500 cross, aged one day, wereformed using analogue method. The control group of broilers was reared usingthe equipment of “Pyatigorsk KBL–4” (66 500 head), the experimental group – usingthe equipment of “Hartmann” (163 680 heads). Duration of the experiment – 40days. Analysis of the dynamics of live weight of broiler chickens reared usingdifferent types of cage equipment revealed that this figure was higher in theexperimental group (cage equipment “Hartmann”), with the average of 4.8 % duringthe rearing period. The average daily weight gain increased by 1.3 %.Evaluation of the livability of the experimental group testified that when the“Hartmann” equipment was used, this indicator was higher than with “PyatigorskKBL–4” equipment by 0.8 %. The amount of feed per 1 kg of live weight gain withthe “Hartmann” equipment equaled 1.68 kg, which is lower than with the “PyatigorskKBL–4” equipment by 0.04 kg, or 2.3 %. Economic efficiency of rearing poultryusing «Hartmann» equipment is characterized by an increase in poultryproduction by 28.1 kg per 1 m2. Thus, when using the “Hartmann”equipment and creating the best conditions for the maintenance of broiler chickens,the farmers can increase profits and save money on feed and the livability oflivestock.
