First X-Treck in Belgium

10 December 2014
Vencomatic Group

BELGIUM - Herman and Brent Wouters of Sint-Lenaarts are the first in their country to start working with Vencomatic's X-Treck.

The owners of 11 houses and approximately 400,000 broilers were impressed with the results in animal health obtained with X-Treck. With their new system they expect to use less antibiotics and experience less leg problems.

In addition to the X-Treck, the Wouters have installed the optional in-cradle system. This way, chicks land on a synthetic surface, where they recover from hatching before accessing the litter floor below.

In order to test the system's efficiency, the farmers simultaneously installed a reference house with broilers from the same parents and of the same age.
