  Review VIV Russia
During the VIV Russia, VDL Agrotech, on the booth of their distributor Peja, exhibited various new products.

The Matrix feeding system was on display for the first time on an Exhibition in Russia and attracted a lot of attention.

The Pouldry manure drying tunnel attracted a lot of attention as well, as the manure disposal is becoming a serious concern for many poultry companies in Russia. Drying and further treating the manure is a realistic solution for this problem.

The newly introduced EggXellent automatic laying nest was on display, completing the total package of equipment for the breeder industry, offered by VDL Agrotech. The total package is offered including automatic feeding for males and females, the Rotra scratch feeder, the combination of which will boost your breeder performance.

Allthough the exhibition hosted less visitors than anticipated, VDL Agrotech looks back at a successful event.

Raitalan Tila Oy Finland

Recently, VDL Agrotech supplied the first breeder houses with our new Matrix male feeding system in Finland. This first project consists of two houses with in total 12.000 females and 1.200 males, located in the surroundings of Turku.

These houses have heating tubes at the wall between the two houses and there is not much space between the walls and the other systems. Here, the Matrix feeding system is the best option on the market to install a good functioning male feeding system, without having problems with the limited space for both the males and females feeding lines.

  Poultry equipment
Modified pan feeding hoppers

The modified pan feeding hoppers have a new end bearing design, which is larger than the previous one and mounted in a nylon housing. The bearing is better protected against water, which makes it more durable. The new pan feeding hopper, with a new end bearing set, is easy-to-assemble and maintain. This set is also available as a spare-part and can be used for the current models hoppers with an old(er) type of bearing.

  Pig equipment
FDU and Weigher

The actual trends of rising feed costs and the genetic potential of modern pig breeds sets new standards for feeding systems. Automatic and accurate feeding of high productive pigs is a must to be competitive in pork business.
