History

Zoo-techniques, founded in 1972, specialized in poultry vaccination and debeaking technologies, was the first company to launch automated poultry vaccination machines enabling hatchery productivity improvement.

  • 1972, conception and first sale of ‘‘one day old chick’’ automated vaccination machine.

  • 1984, launch of the first simultaneous vaccination and debeaking robot.

  • 1992, introduction of ‘‘one to ten days old’’ chick debeaking system.

  • 1995, development and introduction of ‘‘one day old’’ turkey AG 3000.

The main features of our debeaking systems are :

  • Quickness and quality of debeaking and cauterisation.

  • Flexibility of adjusting beak cut length with no bleeding and less mortality.

Applications

Our automated vaccinators allow injection of the following products :

  • Aqueous vaccines such as Marek,

  • Oil based Vaccines,

  • Vitamins,
