France: welfare barn for egg production inaugurated
In France, the popularity of organic eggs is increasing. Nicolas Porcherot from Poiseul-la-Ville-et-Laperrière reacted to this trend and recently expanded his family-owned agricultural company EARL Bioproche by adding a barn for organic egg production. The new barn is located near Dijon in the department Côte-d’Or and has a wintergarden and an open run for the hens. Porcherot elected to equip his new poultry house with the animal-friendly Big Dutchman aviary system Natura Nova 270. Around 300 visitors were interested in the impressive project when he extended an invitation for an Open House.
Hens who want to leave the barn can go outside.
Welfare barn with music
Nicolas Porcherot took his decision in favour of Natura Nova 270 after visiting a colleague’s farm in the department Haute-Savoie, whose egg production concept convinced him.
The aviary consists of one level and two nest rows and perfectly unites welfare with profitability. The new poultry house is also equipped with a stereo system and a surveillance camera, which allows remote control via the internet even from outside of the barn.
