  Reviews Agrena and VIV Turkey
From 6 to June 8, our area sales manager Antoine El Khoury represented VDL Agrotech at the Agrena exhibition in Cairo. On the booth of our local distributor Rabico the innovative Matrix male feeding system attracted a lot of attention. The number of visitors exceeded those of previous years.

From 13 - 15th of June VDL participated at the VIV Turkey in Istanbul together with our local distributor Poultech. What triggered a lot attention at the show was the proven technology for manure drying: the PoulDry system. The fast growing poultry sector (layers & broilers) recognizes the need for solutions to cope with the manure production. VDL Agrotech offers total solutions for manure drying and treatment.

  Project in the picture
Pouletfest - Swiss, New broilerhouse concept

A special open door day, a so called 'Pouletfest' was organised by farmer David Ruetschi and VDL distributor Tool Systems.

The organic broiler house is located in the picturesque Swiss landscape. The house is 64x14 mtr with 64x3 mtr wintergarten and has a capacity of 13.000 birds. Typical for organic broilers is the lower bird density, daylight entering, also special toys like perches and slats and of course the free access to the wintergarten. Special features are : floor heating and hot water space heating.

Due to the higher priced organic broiler feed , in comparison to standard broiler feed , the house is equipped with electronic feed weighing combined with Fittra feedpan. Fittra guarantees a good start and no spillage of expensive feed.

The house is already in operation and the results of the first flocks are excellent as quoted by Mr. Ruetschi.
