Rongda Shandong Agricultural Development to build a new HatchBrood facility in China
The renowned Chinese duck producer Rongda Shandong Agricultural Development has invested in a greenfield HatchBrood facility. This means that ducklings will be brooded in an optimally controlled environment during the crucial four days post-hatch.
The facility will be located in the rural town of Gaotang in Shandong province, and will include eight HatchBrood units, as well as a central system for cooling, heating and ventilation. The brand new facility will have a total brooding capacity of 380,000 ducks per week.
“We have chosen the HatchBrood system to ensure that our ducklings will be given an optimal start,” says Rongda Shandong Agricultural Development’s President, Mr. Bao-Qi Xu. “This enables us to deliver a more developed and robust duckling to our growers. Besides easier management and better performance, HatchBrood will also increase the number of annual cycles and reduce heating costs.”
“Rongda Shandong Agricultural Development is one of the most renowned and fastest-growing duck producers in China,” says HatchTech’s International Sales Manager in China, Huibert Jan van Veelen. “We’re proud that Rongda has selected HachTech as their partner in further optimizing their production efficiency. We’re excited that, with this project, we will be setting a new standard for duckling brooding in China.”
