Floor eggs are not suitable as vaccine eggs and yield almost nothing. Just like all poultry farmers Jochemsen also prefers to have 0% floor eggs. But he has had a period that 2,5% of the produced eggs were floor eggs. Jochemsen needed to collect 7 or 8 buckets of floor eggs out of his poultry house every day. Besides the financial loss, it also caused a lot of frustration as Jochemsen spend one and half an hour a day to collect the eggs.
‘’Jansen is motivated to solve problems with higher operating profit as result. I am pleased with the effort of Jansen Poultry Equipment.’’
Together with the Poultry specialist of Jansen Poultry Equipment, Jochemsen searched for a solution. After some adjustments on the light schedule, feeding schedule and some small adjustments to the system, they managed to reduce the amount of floor egg to 0.6%. Jochemsen does not have to walk 7 or 8 rounds to collect floor eggs and this saves a lot of labour. Besides this, the significant reduction of his floor eggs also gained a big financial benefit.
