First X-Treck in Belgium
Herman and Brent Wouters, Sint-Lenaarts, Belgium are the first in their country to start working with the X-Treck. The owners of 11 houses and approximately 400,000 broilers were impressed with the results in animal health obtained with X-Treck. With their new system they expect to use less antibiotics and experience less leg problems.
In addition to the X-Treck Herman and Brent installed the optional In-cradle system. This way chicks land on a synthetic surface where they recover from hatching before accessing the litter floor below.
In order to test the systems’efficiency they simultaneously installed a reference house with broilers from the same parents and of the same age.
