THE NETHERLANDS - Poultry company Farm Pride Foods from Australia has equipped their table egg production facilities with welfare friendly, aviary systems of poultry equipment manufacturer Vencomatic.

The installation contains one rearing house for 40.000 birds and three production houses for in total 120.000 commercial layers. The poultry site is located in Bears Lagoon, Serpentine, north-west of Bendigo, Victoria.

The company has chosen for the Bolegg systems of Vencomatic, as the Bolegg Starter rearing system fits very well with the Bolegg Terrace production system.

In the Bolegg Starter birds are trained to jump and to find their way in an aviary environment. This gives the birds a good start in the Bolegg Terrace: they know how to move in the system and where to find water and feed. This also ensures a high egg production with low labour costs in the production environment.
