Broiler project in the Iran

Recently we finished installation and commissioned our newest Broiler Project in the North of Iran, consisting of 14 houses.

PoulDry project in the Netherlands

Exactly 4 years after supplying the first PoulDry drying tunnel to Richard van der Velden from VECO Pluimvee B.V. in Heusden (Asten), The Netherlands, VDL Agrotech recently supplied a second PoulDry drying tunnel.

This tunnel is installed to dry the manure from 2 layer houses. The tunnel is positioned between the 2 houses and air from both houses is used to dry the manure.

In 2014, the first PoulDry was delivered to VECO Pluimvee B.V. The 4-tiers tunnel is used to dry layer manure which is then pressed into pellets and sanitized. The manure pellets are exported as a fertilizer.

Higher pig health symposium

VDL Agrotech sponsored the symposium ‘Higher pig health’ which was held on January 16th in the Evoluon in Eindhoven. The central theme was ‘Antibiotics 0,0%’ and approximately 100 Dutch pig farmers attended the symposium.

One of the important subjects discussed was piglet liveability. To reduce the use of anti-biotics it is important to offer the best start possible to the new born piglets. A good start will reduce considerably the need of using antibiotics from the farrowing crate up to the fattener houses.

Also the dry feeding system with very accurate feed dosing for the farrowing sows contributes to an optimal sow performance.
