Altona gets Smart in Western Australia

Western Australia’s leading supplier of layer chicks, Altona Hatchery Pty Ltd, has selected Smart incubation technologies from Pas Reform for the refurbishment of its hatchery at Forrestfield, Perth.

The commission includes SmartSet™ setters, SmartHatch™ hatchers, a SmartCenter™ Hatchery Information System, egg transfer equipment and Hatchery Climate Control systems.

Established in 1942, Altona today supplies customers throughout Western Australia and the Northern Territories, with chicks from Hyline layer stock. The company operates its own breeder farm, hatchery and pullet grower farms under the direction of Mr Peter Bell.
