Marc distributes day-old chicks to several broiler farmers in the Pittem area.
Nearly all of Marc´s houses are now equipped with DACS ventilation.
New broiler breeder house
In 2010 I was planning for an expansion of my operation and was searching for new and better production methods in order to increase animal welfare and overall profitability on my farm.
I saw the DACS system at the VIV Europe show in Utrecht that same year and found the functionality and the quality of the system to be the best I had seen.
I decided to install a system in my new broiler breeder house. The first birds were placed on the 1st of December 2010 and the system has been running flawlessly ever since, says Marc.
