Hatcheries are found in a variety of climates, from the hot, humid tropics of South East Asia to hot, arid zones in the Middle East or the changeable climates of Central Europe or the USA. Typically, external temperature and relative humidity are subject to seasonal changes (e.g. rainy season, very cold winters) or even a day and night rhythm. The challenge is to establish whether outside air is directly suitable for incubation - and if not, how to make it fit for that purpose.
Quebec-based Boire & Frères and Sargent Farms from Ontario have joined forces to develop a new, state-of-the-art hatchery project, that will produce around 20 million day old broilers a year with a focus on chick quality, welfare, hygiene, and sustainability.
House of Raeford’s affiliate Columbia Farms is the first of NatureForm and Pas Reform’s customers in the USA to adopt SmartCare™, a new 360° approach to delivering service and support for the hatchery.
In September 2015, Angela Fauls joined the NatureForm team as Manufacturing Operations Manager, with a focus on driving the further development of the Company’s operations performance by using Lean Logic Strategies to increase manufacturing efficiencies, project planning and cost price reduction.
