Germany’s Zimmerer Gruppe has announced that it has upgraded the monitoring systems across its egg farms. The company, whose best-known egg brand is Deutsche Marken-Ei, says that the investment will not only help it to better manage its farms, but will also help to guarantee the quality of its products.

The investments will allow Zimmerer to monitor its farms remotely, will improve efficiency, help to ensure to ensure that hens are kept in the best possible condition, and improve financial decision making.

Zimmerer has worked with Porphyrio and has installed the latters Lay-Insight system. The egg producer will now be able to predict the performance of its layer flocks and, based on early warnings, address potential problems. The data from the monitoring system can be directly translated into financial key performance indicators, and offers the possibility of comparing historical data stretching back 10 years.
