Egg production in an aviary system: Big Dutchman customer granted Young Farmer of the Year Award
In just five years Craig Grant has established a profitable egg production business on the 290 ha arable and pig farm run by his father and uncle near Fraserburg in Aberdeenshire, UK. He runs the family’s two 12,000-bird houses on a self-employed basis and also operates his own 16,000 Big Dutchman multi-tier unit NaturaNova Twin aviary system.
With great success, according to Farmers Weekly: the magazine which is aimed at the British farming industry has awarded Craig with the 2012 Young Farmer of the Year Award. In a stiff competition, several winning ways made him stand out from the competition, not least the impressive growth Craig had achieved in business in a short period of time.
