The traditional raking method is labor intensive and requires too much time, cost and efforts. The RACKER is an engine powered poultry raking machine, designed and developed by Hope Genomics (PVT) Ltd,Pakistan. With the help of modern technology & design our raking machine is capable of raking 20,000 sq. ft. area within an hour and this can be done by a single person itself.
- To provide our farmers technologically advanced and effective racking machine at minimum price.
- We aspire Poultry Farmers taking maximum yields from their farms with minimal labour dependence and financial implications.
- The end customers consuming the poultry products should receive the healthiest flock of chickens raised in healthy farms.
- Our goal is to reach all,small and big, poultry farmesr looking forward to raise healthy birds, irrespective of the geographical location they have.
- To address the micro challenges inside a farm, primarily – Litter Raking, disturbing Ammonia levels & Moisture contents.
- Reduce the dependency on manual methods and encourage use of smart mechanical assistance in the form of machines.
- Changing results by changing methods.
- Maintain the quality of output (batch of chickens) through out the year, irrespective of the season and its effect on their quality. This will be major shift in the way the industry performs.
Poultry is the fastest growing industry of Pakistan.Racking is crucial part of Farming and it directly affects the health of bird and meat quality.Despite its importance it is the most hectic, tiring and overlooked part of farming. We witnessed the plight of our farmers and decided to provide them an effective,modern and cheap solution. To create a proper and workable solution, deep understanding of the requirements and problems was needed. For that, the team visited several other poultry farms and discussed the issues with poultry farmers and labors, industry experts, vetenary doctors, etc. On further investigation, we realised the complexity and severity of this problem.
We observed following things:-
- Raking is important, mandatory and everyday activity for the poultry houses to keep the litter dry and bird’s health in good condition.
- Raking is a labor intensive process. The old raking method is time consuming and less effective.
- Poulty industry has evolved in past few years, but the problem of raking is overlooked.
After doing intensive research, Hope Genomics decided to develop a solution that could solve the problem of raking efficiently. Under the guidance of poultry industry experts and with the help of design innovation experience of our leadership team, we developed RACKER Poultry raking machine.
Since 2017, we have developed 6 different versions. Each version of machine was tried and tested again and again under rigorous conditions. Each successive model overcame the flaws of previous model. In January 2019, we officially launched RACKER.
