Augermatic and FluxX: Poultry house equipment for modern poultry growing

The six new buildings, all of which were completely equipped by Big Dutchman, offer space to a total of 324,000 broilers. One of the houses was open to visitors, who turned up in large numbers. About 400 visitors seized the opportunity to take a closer look at the poultry house and its equipment fit for 54,000 broilers.

Optimum feed supply in poultry growing

The six new buildings with which Tobias Winnige wants to secure the future of his business for coming generations are about 100 m long and 24 m wide each. For feed supply Tobias Winnige went for a Big Dutchman classic when it comes to poultry growing. Every poultry house is equipped with five lines of the Augermatic feeding system and FluxX feed pans. Fresh water is supplied by drinker lines that can be winched up under the roof together with the feed pans during cleaning.

Controlling and managing poultry houses

The centerpiece of the new operation is the amacs control system that makes it easy to control poultry production and climate in the house. amacs operates based on state-of-the-art internet technology. With amacs, the farm manager is able to retrieve management data such as house temperature or ventilation in real time or check on water supply and make necessary adjustments with just a few mouse clicks, from any place in the world.
