AgroTrends January Edition - No. 28  2020

We are pleased to send you the 1st edition of the Agrotrends for 2020.



“I can only think of the benefits”

Pieter-Jan van Dijk, poultry farmer in Belgium runs a poultry farm with 500.000 broilers capacity.

At the end of 2019 he opened 4 new identical state of the art broiler houses of 120 x 25 meters in Bocholt. These are all equipped with the Valenta Flow Slider feed pans.

“It is labour-saving and the feed is more accessible for the chicks. We are more than happy with it.”

Watch the movie.



”Easier access to feed and feed intake is stimulated”

Jolien Driessens is a young poultry farmer in Belgium and is the proud owner of 2 new broiler houses since the beginning of 2019.

The Flow Slider is installed on every 5th Valenta pan.

“The Flow Slider makes the feed easier accessible for the chicks and it improves the feed intake. The LED light on the end pan stimulates the feed intake from the end pan, to make sure the feed lines are switched on in time for the supply of fresh feed.”



Easily disconnect Valenta feed pan with special tool

A simple tool was designed to disconnect Valenta feed pans from the feeder tube in case extra thorough cleaning of the Valenta feed pans is desired. With this toll the disconnecting is a lot easier and faster.

The tool consists of two conductors that fit over the tube. By pulling the levers together, the head is pushed off the neck.

Watch here the movie and see how easy it works.

The disconnecting tool can also be used as an assembly tool by changing the position of conductors. Watch the movie.
