Vietnamese customer satisfied with the Big Dutchman breeding management systems
“We are very happy!” said Mr. Nguyễn Như Phán, Marketing Manager of Dabaco Group Vietnam, about his satisfaction with their Big Dutchman equipment. The poultry equipment supplier has recently provided 13 AI (Artificial Insemination) breeder houses for the Dabaco Group’s farm in the Northern Bac Ninh Province of Vietnam. According to Mr Phán, the partnership with the German company Big Dutchman has proven to be very fruitful. He is confident that this successful collaboration will continue.
“When we decided to go with the AI technology for breeding of yellow-feather chickens, we sought the professional guidance of Big Dutchman, from cage design to cage construction to the appropriate dimensions and the technical know-how for the entire farm. We then combined Big Dutchman’s equipment and poultry management skills with the AI technology for breeding. As a result, we managed to build the first state-of-the-art AI farm in Vietnam,” stated Mr Phán.
Big Dutchman, being the partner in poultry management systems, supplies Dabaco Group with turnkey solutions such as buildings with cages that are equipped with automated destination feeding and egg collection systems, as well as integrated climate control to provide the optimum breeding environment in the house.
Destination feeding is designed to allocate a certain amount of feed to each cage row, tier and number of birds, ensuring an even distribution of feed in accordance with the daily ration. As breeder birds only consume one meal per day at a specific time of each day, Big Dutchman’s destination feeding system can ensure that these birds are fed accurately and in a timely manner.
The ventilation system at the Dabaco farm has been designed for a combination of side and tunnel ventilation. This type of ventilation is called a CombiTunnel system and controlled via the Viper Touch climate and production controller, an innovation of Big Dutchman. This system ensures the correct minimum ventilation and optimises the cooling effect in the house during hot weather, thus creating an environment of thermal comfort for the livestock.
AI technology is specifically designed to improve the fertility rate and will improve hatchability of the eggs produced. By having a specialised AI cage, the farm can house a higher number of hens per square meter. Chickens in a hygienic cage system have a high level of liveability. They are also healthier and cleaner, which reduces the usage of antibiotics. The Big Dutchman cage system also enables the chickens to lay better quality eggs that have no cracks and are clean as well as free of dust and manure.
