Thirty years ago, discussions began to emerge about rural exodus, the problems it would bring and forecasts of lack of manpower. Today, this is no longer the future, it’s the reality. There’s little skilled labor and services are left to be done.
To meet this need, and improve processes, technology is becoming more prevalent in agricultural production systems, and it is common for a machine to do the work of five, ten, or more people.
Although the replacing of human labor for machines may not be a synonymo of cost reduction, it’s a solution that has its benefits, especially in repetitive services or data collection, whose efficiency and assertiveness are higher.
In this article, we will talk about some machines that can assist in the reduction of labor required for disinfection and monitoring of the production system. Curious? Keep reading!
This is one of those equipments that the producer can’t picture himself without it, because imagine having to wash and disinfect every vehicle that is entering the breeding area manually? And the time required for it?
Some models are automatic or timed and just need a person to be controlled by.
Think of a machine where you just have to put the tray with the eggs and choose the processing speed? It does exist, with water saving, automatic control of temperature and quantity of disinfectant used, working with various tray sizes and guaranteed by international standards for disinfection of eggs.
This is another machine that fits your needs more efficiently, using less water than normal methods and with a technology that facilitates the collection of waste. Simply place the trays on the mat and wait for the equipment to do the work with all automatic parameters.
We haven’t yet reached the point where automation of production has a lower real cost than labor, but if we compare process efficiency, standardization, parameter control (process speed, temperature), we’ll see that machines provide these benefits more clearly. And that results in a greater financial return, as well as production safety, ensuring quality for sales and customer satisfaction.
