Johannes Kudsk, Operations Manager at Danbroiler in Denmark, produces 3.5 million broilers a year in fifteen sheds. The production is all in/all out resulting in 8.2 crops annually. The DACS ventilation systems is installed in fourteen of the fifteen sheds.
”Because the climate in my sheds is always as desired, I can focus on optimizing my production.”
The choice was easy
Twelve years ago, the time had come to replace the ventilation system in all our sheds. We wanted to be sure we chose correctly before replacing the ventilation system in all the sheds, so we installed a DACS ventilation system in one shed and another well-known Danish ventilation system in another shed. We tested these sheds for a period of twelve months. When the test period was over, we were convinced that the DACS ventilation system was performing best. We saw significant differences between the two systems, so the choice was easy, Johannes Kudsk says.
The extreme periods
During the extreme periods, in summer and winter, you see a clear difference. In the fourteen DACS sheds, adjustment and compensation in relation to the external conditions is never an issue. Bedding and climate is in perfect balance throughout the year, simply due to the functionality of the DACS ventilation system. In addition, the heat consumption is 50% less in the 14 DACS houses – significant savings that makes our business even more profitable.
I know my animals thrive
Because the climate in my sheds is always as desired, and the bedding therefore is in perfect condition, I know my animals thrive. As a result I do not have to spend much time in the sheds. Instead, I can focus on optimizing my production. The low heat consumption and the well-ventilated houses where oxygen is provided to the birds from day one ensure the animals' well-being, hence a profitable business, so I know we are on top of things, Johannes states.
