The climate in my houses is always comfortable, and the temperature is uniform all over the house.

Ann Andersen from Denmark has been a poultry producer since 1997. She has DACS ventilation in her three houses - all built in 2010. Her chickens are healthy and grow well.

Right from the start I have worked hard to optimize my production as I can only make a living from producing chickens if my animals thrive. I constantly work to stay ahead and I can see it pays off says Ann.

Uniform temperatures
With my DACS ventilation system I have a very flexible system that keeps set points no matter outside conditions. I never think of the consequences of bad weather in relation to the climate in the house. The mix of incoming air with warm air from the house maintain the desired climate. The climate in my houses is always comfortable, and the temperature is uniform all over the house. I do not fear extreme winter or hot summer days, as I know that with the DACS ventilation system I have the tools to create the indoor climate I want for my animals, Ann points out.

Excellent production results
Ann Andersen’s production results are at the top of the scale in Denmark. This, of course, is caused by the quality of both the day old animals, the feed and the water, but - says Ann Andersen - absolutely also the by the quality of the air in the poultry houses.

Clear like glass
The proof that the air in my houses is extremely good was given to me in 2013 when I had the health of my animals examined. This was done when the animals were 21 days old. Elanco Animal Health Denmark performed the dissection of the chickens, and noted that they had never seen tracheas that clear. The tracheas from my animals were clear like glass where they are normally found to be milky-white. The reason was attributed to the quality of air in the buildings Ann mention.

EPEF of 432
Ann produces nine batches of chicken on a yearly basis. The birds are slaughtered at day 34 and in 2017 the average EPEF from all three houses was 432.
