On 30 May 2016, a delegation of the Chinese BU of BIOMIN, a leader in animal nutrition and health, visited HatchTech in the Netherlands. During the visit, HatchTech showcased its revolutionary HatchCare solution – the hatcher with light, feed and water.
The visitors were first taken on a tour through the Lagerwey Hatchery in Lunteren, where they got to see the HatchCare system in full operation. Then they visited the HatchTech Experience Centre in Veenendaal, where they received a presentation on HatchCare.
“We wanted to show our delegation the latest technological innovations in the field of poultry production,” says Norbert Trattner, Area Manager at BIOMIN. “The visit to HatchTech exceeded our expectations. The group was very enthusiastic and impressed when they saw the HatchCare system in practice. I have no doubt that there will be a lot of interest for this system in the Chinese market.”
In the HatchCare system, chicks hatch under optimum and uniform temperature conditions. At the same time, they are provided with light, feed and water as soon as they hatch. This combination not only results in a system that delivers stronger, healthier chicks, but is also a significant step towards more animal-friendly and antibiotic-free poultry production.
