Uzbekistan project: increasing demand for poultry meat

Due to the rapid population growth in Uzbekistan, poultry farmers are encouraged by the local government to invest in the agricultural sector. This has resulted in the installation of a large, modern integrated broiler project in the Samarkand region, with the aim of producing 6 million broilers annually. This project has been fully designed, engineered and is currently being installed by VDL Agrotech.

Based on the required annual capacity of 6 million broilers, the VDL Agrotech engineers have calculated and designed the total project lay out and the required equipment, taking into account the local climate conditions and bio-security. The breeder houses are equipped with the suspended Chainovation female feeding system and Matrix male feeding. All the broiler houses are equipped with the Valenta feed pans. In order to monitor the total project operation, the farm computers are connected to a network system and central computer with remote access.

Turnkey Tan Tai Loc project in Vietnam

In the Soc Trang Province, in the South of Vietnam, VDL Agrotech together with De Heus Animal Nutrition built a turnkey 360 sow project. The project consists of 4 buildings for the gilts, farrowing, mating and gestation.

The total project includes automatic feeding systems, drinking lines, complete climate control and ventilation system, the pens, individual galvanised crates for mating sows, made with swinging back door.

RescueCare in Korea

Our sales manager RescueCare Claudia Weick recently visited Korea to further promote the RescueCare automated feeding system. In the recent years several companies in Korea have installed the RescueCare system in their farms.

RescueCare ensures that every live born piglet has ad-lib access to fresh liquid feed, starting from day one. Research shows that the system gives an increase of 30% in the total delivered kilograms of piglets per sow per year. In addition it saves 5-10% in labour.
