“I observe less leg disorders and the broilers grow faster” - Peter Wolfs

“My main objective as a farmer is to deliver robust broilers with as little use of antibiotics as possible. This is definitely possible with NestBorn. The NestBorn machine places the eggs in my broiler house, on a litter bed that I prepare in advance. With the Ovoscan-sensors we monitor the entire hatching process. Immediately after hatch, the chicks have uninterrupted access to feed and water. With the NestBorn system, my broiler houses are occupied an extra 2 days per cycle, but this effort clearly pays off. I observe less leg disorders and the broilers grow faster. I also notice that the birds have less stress. With NestBorn I can improve animal welfare and at the same time I get better financial results. And all this without extra investments in my broiler houses.”
