Turkey house tests the new feeder pans: “good work, Roxell!”
In Heuvelland, a municipality located in the Belgian province of West Flanders, Alex Casteele and his wife Inge started up a farm in 1994. The combination of dairy cattle and turkeys results in a busy but also pleasantly varied activity schedule.In 2001 the turkey production capacity was more than doubled. With the construction of a new house the total capacity was increased to 16,000 turkeys.
"In addition, these pans seem more durable, since the connection to the tube is very sturdy. When cleaning the Titan, we click open the bottom pan. It stays attached on one side and is therefore easy to thoroughly clean with a pressure washer. My wife is particularly pleased with this system. There's no more manual work involved and we get it done much quicker. And with the central control system, I can easily adjust the feed level."
"We've always been fans of Roxell products and this new Titan pan certainly lives up to our expectations. Good work, Roxell!"
Challenge for the sector
As president of the Belgian Association of Turkey Farmers, Alex knows the ins and outs of the turkey market better than anyone else.
