Big Dutchman innovations receive awards
From 6th to 9th November 2001, the VIV Europe 2001 show in Utrecht (Netherlands) is open to the public. Big Dutchman can especially look forward to this year’s most important show of the international livestock industry. The reason for this: As the show approaches, it has already become known that two innovations from the world-wide market leader housing equipment and feeding systems will receive a VIV Europe 2001 Award. According to Ben de Jong, press officer of Jaarbeurs Exhibition & Media, the new Big Dutchman tube feeder for pregnant sows in group management, for example, ranks among the best innovations in the area of modern pig management, agreed on by an independent selection committee. On the poultry side, Big Dutchman will receive an innovation price for the AMACS management and control system. Thanks to its software based on web technology it allows a so-called „transparent production“. Amacs enables data acquisition, survey and control of traditional and alternative layer houses in real time from anywhere in the world. These are, however, not the only innovations presented by Big Dutchman – the world-wide No. 1 of its line of industry will have their representative show booths in two different halls. In Hall 3 (stand 3.B.024 & 3.B.025) the market leader will show its complete range of products for modern poultry management. Interested pig farmers, however, should visit Big Dutchman in Hall 11 (stand 11.D.034), where the company will exhibit their product range for pig management. Climate control, alternative layer management and EU-conform management systems are the highlights of poultry presentations. Plenty of real innovations on these sectors give an impression of the experience and competence of the company Big Dutchman. In the pig equipment sector, Big Dutchman offers well thought-out feeding systems as well as the renowned durable housing systems. Detailed further developments and practical innovations show the efficiency of the company from Vechta (Germany) which operates world-wide.
