With the release of HatchCare, HatchTech Incubation Technology sets the new standard for chick quality. The only hatcher with feed, fresh water and light has been renewed to further enhance chick performance and welfare.
With HatchCare, chicks hatch under optimum and uniform temperature conditions and are provided with feed, fresh water and light as soon as they hatch. This unique combination of features not only delivers stronger, healthier chicks, it is also a significant step towards more animal-friendly, antibiotic-free poultry production. The NEW HatchCare sets the bar even higher with the introduction of the reversed fan technology, more fresh air and the new Hi-Interface.
More relevant than ever
“After the successful introduction in 2014, leading poultry companies at all continents of the world have chosen for HatchCare, says Joost ter Heerdt, commercial director of HatchTech Incubation Technology. “We still see the popularity increasing. In the present market conditions with continuously increasing feed prices, improved feed conversation ratios as a result of early feeding, plus improved animal welfare are more relevant than ever. To live up to our promise of superior chick quality and to remain top of class, it is key to keep developing and innovating. The NEW HatchCare retains its unique features that make HatchCare top of class, but now raises the bar even higher with the introduction of some of our best technologies so far.”
In The NEW HatchCare, the patented MicroClimer laminar airflow technology has been advanced with the new, unique Reversed Fan Technology. In combination with a greater amount of fresh air, this ensures the best climate currently possible for each individual chick in the hatcher. The new state-of-the-art Hi-Interface makes it possible to control temperature, humidity and airflow in more detail than ever.
