Over 1 bln broilers grown on HaiKoo from Roxell

Roxell's oval pan feeding system has entered broiler markets worldwide. Marketing manager Frank Hartmann says that by the end of 2008, the HaiKoo-pan will represent over 70% of company's sales of broiler pans.

At this stage over 1 bln broilers have already been grown on the oval pan.
“Growers particularly like the fast start of the broiler chicks, which is the immediate result of the 360° filling and the low pan height. But also the large feeding space in is having more and more impact,” says Frank Hartmann.
HaiKoo offers a feeding space of 1140 mm per pan. Each pan serves up to 14% more birds than most round standard feeder pans. In practice this allows growers that upgrade from natural ventilation to tunnel ventilation with pad cooling to stock more birds without exceeding the prescribed density per square meter and without investing in extra feeder lines.
On the occasion of the Roxell distributor seminar, Gino Van Landuyt and Frank Hartmann honoured Gerry Bigeni of Patarker from Australia for having sold the 1 millionth HaiKoo-feeder pan for broilers .
