US - When Billy Dossett, a poultry producer in Collins Mississippi, USA, decided to replace the 14-year-old feeding system in his broiler houses, he turned to Georgia Poultry to supply the equipment.

The Collins, Mississippi grower, explained; “We had started growing a heavier bird and wanted to change from a three on ten to a four on ten arrangement for extra feeding space. We installed the GrowerSELECT Classic Flood feeders in two buildings and a leading competitive brand in two other buildings. Over the next year, we trialed the two feeders side by side over five flocks. The Classic Flood feeders came out on top for feed conversion in four out of the five flocks.”

Billy continued, “The GrowerSELECT feed systems just haven’t given me any trouble, and the performance is great. I feel like I can be competitive with anybody using GrowerSELECT equipment. A grower needs to look down the road when it comes to choosing equipment. With my old equipment, a replacement motor would cost close to $500. That same part from GrowerSELECT is less than $200. Maintenance costs can add up in a hurry if you’re not careful.”

“The folks at Georgia Poultry have been there every time I’ve needed something. Poultry equipment is specialized, and you can’t just pick up spare parts at a hardware store. I like having a stocked parts store close to me for emergency repairs.”
