Celebrating the largest broiler house in Denmark - Capacity: 131,000 chickens

In the middle of October, the largest broiler house in Denmark was ready at Niels Erik & Karen Thomsen. The large broiler house, which is split in the middle, measures a total of 150 meters in length and 40 meters in width. The house has a capacity of 131,000 broilers per rotation. LANDMECO has installed nine feeding lines and 10 drinking lines in the big house.

 

A few years ago Niels Erik & Karen Thomsen built another broiler house, with a total capacity of 120,000 chickens per rotation, which is located right next to the new house. LANDMECO also delivered both feeding and drinking lines for this house.

 

It is an impressive sight to see the two great looking houses next to each other. Two houses which together provide a capacity of 250,000 broilers per rotation. Fantastic.

Brand new organic layer production at Peder Gasbjerg, Brande DK

Friday the 2 October Peder Gasbjerg and his wife Bente held a small private reception to celebrate their two new organic layer houses, that are made as two connected arch steel buildings. Each of the new arch steel buildings has a capacity of 6 sections of 3,000 chickens, and thus the total capacity of 36,000 organic chickens. 

 

LANDMECO has supplied all the equipment in the houses, where the selected solution consists of LANDMECOs Combo aviary systems, Lubings conveyer belt and Staalkats Farmpacker. Future Rundbuehaller has built the two connected arch steel buildings, and the hens come from Jørgen Lodberg (rearing).

 

It was a proud Peder Gasbjerg showing his guests around, and we can well understand this. The best experience was when Peder opened up the gates and let the chickens run out in the green areas. It looked like a huge white wave that came rushing out of the house toward the trees. No matter how many times you experience this, every time something special. You can also experience the 'white wave by seeing the short movie here.'

South Africa, Souvereign Foods test: THE FCR & PEF numbers are still substantially better in the house using the LANDMECO pan

In February 2013 LANDMECO made cooperation with Sovereign Foods, which is the fourth biggest chicken producer in South Africa. At the farm Wincanton, where 12 identical houses were built at the same time, we changed a competitor’s newer equipment with LANDMECOs equipment in one of the houses to test the effectiveness of LANDMECOs pan. At the farm everything is identical; Management, chicks, feed, etc. the only difference is the pan feeding system. In June 2013, we had data from the first two cycles, and they were absolutely fantastic. FCR in the house with LANDMECOs pan was in 1.556 where the house with a competing pan had an FCR of 1.641.

 

After two years operation, we followed up on the test, to ensure that the success of LANDMECOs pan lasts. And it does, of course. The average FCR in the last 5 cycles lies at 1.596 with LANDMECOs pan, and at 1.672 in the remaining 11 houses with a competing European pan. At the same time PEF is significantly higher in the house with LANDMECOs pan (323 to 301).

 

There IS no doubt. LANDMECOs pan feeding system gives better results.
