Grando Castle: The Best Nest Since The Middle Ages

18 November 2015
Vencomatic Group

GLOBAL - Vencomatic introduces its new nest system: the Grando Castle. This new nest provides a solid base which is built to last.

It ensures a long lifetime of the nest. The Grando Castle has a modular design, offering maximum flexibility and providing an optimal fit to every poultry house. One and two tiered nests can now be altered over the length of the house, exactly matching the desired nest space.

High consumption egg quality

The first Grando Castle houses were installed in the US, and customers are very happy with the results. Mr. Harry Luimes, Sales Director Americas of the Vencomatic Group, stated: “the development of the Grando Castle is a big leap forward, and has the capability to supply every house with sufficient nest space, as well as achieve the highest egg quality.” High egg quality is achieved in the Grando Castle by reducing floor eggs, but also by providing a clean nesting site. Mr. Luimes continues: “birds are expelled from the nest at night with the tipping floor system, which automatically cleans the nest. Our floors are closed under a 90 degree angle, to ensure that any possible contaminants fall down.”

Nest configurations

The Grando Castle utilizes the well-known sidebelt configuration. The Vencomatic sidebelt nest concept has been utilized in floor layer houses for many years across the world. The floors of the nest are provided with a Vencomat, designed by Vencomatic for good bird comfort and egg roll-off. The Grando Castle has the option to be supplied with a flat roof, providing extra living surface for birds, or it can have the traditional points roof. Furthermore, the nest can be supplied with integrated drinker lines.
