CZECH REPUBLIC - In June 2010, the first hens were placed on Vencomatic's Bolegg Terrace system at customer, Vaclav Matousek in the Czech Republic.

The house for 6,000 birds has been built in the city of Cercany, near to the capital, Prague. This is still a small house but a very important one, as this is seen as the first modern aviary production unit in the Czech Republic, which should lead the way for the future.

The birds which placed on the system were reared in the Netherlands, as at this moment there is a lack of good quality aviary rearing sites in the Czech Republic. As Vencomatic points out, rearing is one of the key success factors, the Vencomatic representative mediated in the purchase of well reared laying hens from the Netherlands. In this way, a perfect start of this modern aviary production unit was ensured.

The next modern aviary production units are now build in the Czech Republic. The first Jump Start rearing house for 24.000 hens is now completed and due to be operational at the end of 2010, followed by another Bolegg Terrace house for 26,000 hens. The Czech Republic has still a large step to take, considering the fact that the country should also comply to the European regulations before 2012.

Mr Matousek delivers his fresh eggs to hotels in Prague and directly to consumers. He is very satisfied with the support he received from Vencomatic in his start up.

He said: "All went very well in the installation of the system, which has been done by AGE, the Czech distributor of Vencomatic, together with an engineer of Vencomatic. Even at the placement of the birds, there was a poultry specialist of Vencomatic to assist me in the management."
