Chickens drink 1.6 to 2 times as much as they eat and consist of approximately 70% water. Water plays a role in all critical processes in their bodies. From consumption to temperature regulation. It is therefore crucial that they have access to fresh, cool, and clean drinking water.
The probability of disease, infections, and a higher percentage of mortality will decrease by correctly taking care of the hygiene of your drinking water system. Furthermore, a high drinking water quality will also contribute towards better production results: regardless of whether this concerns growth of broilers or the shell quality of eggs. Therefore, we develop, produce and supply innovative solutions that guarantee a high drinking water quality and contribute towards the hygiene in your poultry house.
After a lightning strike caused a fire in the two brand new poultry houses of Beek Poultry in Barneveld (the Netherlands), Impex dealer Beek Agri equipped the houses again in 2021. The laying hens are now kept according to the 3 Star Better Life quality mark (most profound Dutch quality mark). Henk van de Hoef of Beek Agri explains it all.
In 2011, Raymond Veldhuizen started keeping 24,000 organic laying hens. In 2018 he exchanged his old drinking system for an Impex drinking system with I-Flex 14-SP drinking nipples and drip cups. We visited him at his farm in Maarsbergen to talk about his experiences with our system.
