Contract on six houses for broiler production and nine for broiler breeder management

Big Dutchman from Vechta, Germany has recently signed a contract with Al Ajban Poultry Farms in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE). The contract is for an expansion of already well established farms and covers the supply of poultry equipment for six broiler production houses and nine houses for broiler breeder management.

Al Ajban is the first poultry producer in the UAE to have a fully integrated array of farms to include all forms of production and processing in poultry. The innovative company was also first to install automatic nest system inclusive automatic egg collection, and produces an average of 13 million hatching eggs annually. This contract follows a considerable commitment to Big Dutchman, who has previously supplied Al Ajban Poultry with multiple houses in 2012.

“We are honoured that we have once again been selected by Al Ajban Poultry Farms as their trusted partner, and to have the opportunity to further strengthen our relationship.” commented the Vechta-based Area Sales Manager Khalid Abdelrahman, on the impressive follow-up order. The two companies have had dealings since 2011, and Mr Abdelrahman along with Dr Yasser El Shamy, the project manager of Al Ajban Poultry will be managing the current expansion.

Modern poultry production at Al Ajban Poultry Farms

Being the only end-to-end poultry operation in the whole of Emirates, Al Ajban Poultry Farms are deemed one of the most modern farms in poultry farming. The company commenced a complete poultry integration project between 2009 and 2010. This project therefore expanded their business to not only include houses for breeder management and hatcheries but a processing plant and a feed mill amongst others.

They are, however, not done yet; the company is in the process of planning a transformation of bringing all its facilities up to international HACCP standards, that is, Hazard analysis and critical control points. This is in order to adhere strictly to the highest standards of production performance, hygiene, bio-security, nutrition, protection of poultry stock against diseases and product safety.

VIV Europe 2014: Hot-air blower Thermorizer achieves energy efficiency of 92-98 %

Up to 25 % of heating cost savings for poultry managers

New hot-air blower Thermorizer

Saving energy is becoming more and more important in poultry farming. A heating system which perfectly meets this requirement is the Thermorizer TR-75. Big Dutchman presents the novelty for the first time at VIV Europe in Utrecht: The hot-air blower achieves an energy efficiency of 92-98 %. This saves up to 25 % of heating costs.

The Thermorizer is a heating device with flue gas exhaust. A chimney guides the exhaust gases out of the house thanks to the self-contained technology. Thermorizer also benefits animal health and well-being – which, in turn, positively affects the production results: A very large throwing range of 60 meters and more ensures homogenous distribution of the heated air. This leads to comfortable temperatures throughout the entire house and healthy animals. In addition, the noise level of the hot-air blower is much lower compared to conventional heaters, which means that the birds experience less stress.

Other features: Poultry managers can set the heat output individually between 60 and 100 % and switch between operation with propane and natural gas without having to replace any component parts. Maintenance, handling and cleaning are made simple through the high IP protection rating of the hot-air blower. Another asset is the dimensions: Thermorizer is both small and tall which means that in rearing cage houses the devices will not be in the farmers’ way during their daily work. A control light is installed on top of each device which makes it easy to spot unit failures right in the service room.

In future, Thermorizer will easily be connected to the BigFarmNet Manager by means of a communications interface. This allows poultry farmers to view and regulate important data, such as running times and the temperature of the device, on the computer in real time.

Feed conveying system FlexVey PUR

Flexible, pliable, very quiet to operate and, most importantly, extremely resistant to wear and tear. The new Big Dutchman FlexVey PUR conveying system is a true innovation and ensures a constant, safe delivery of feed from the silo to the poultry house at all times. FlexVey PUR will be on display at VIV Europe 2014.

“The special feature of our new product is the spiral hose made of high-quality, wear-resistant polyurethane,” explains Big Dutchman product manager Jörg Hurlin. “Endurance tests have shown that the service life of this system is four to five times longer than that of traditional conveying systems.”

The pliable hose is easily installed and very flexible. Complicated mounting around corners is now a thing of the past. The system is also very quiet to operate: an additional advantage. This reflects positively on the behaviour of the birds and reduces stressful situations in the house. 

FlexVey PUR is available with diameters of 75 and 90 mm as of now.

Innovative group laying nest "Relax"

Big Dutchman has launched a group laying nest particularly for broiler breeders providing several innovative features. “Relax” is equipped with two separate, easy-to-lift nest roofs which significantly facilitates nest and egg belt inspection. Relax will be on display at VIV Europe 2014.

Another innovative feature is the egg belt with a three-point bearing design: thanks to the increased share of perforated surface and the triangular shape of the holes, contact surfaces between the eggs and the egg belt are minimised. Eggs that are rolling off are slowed down gently which reduces the number of hair-cracked and dirty eggs.

“Relax” is made of high-quality, durable materials which increases the nest acceptance and improves nest hygiene. The smooth surfaces facilitate cleaning and reduce the bacteria load as well as insect infestation during the grow-out. “Relax” has been designed as a nearly screw-less connector system and can therefore be installed easily and rapidly.
