Hotraco Agri's business objective is to provide total peace of mind for livestock farmers through the creation of innovative automation systems. We help poultry, pig and cattle farmers improve animal performance and boost operational efficiency by providing complete automation solutions. In doing so, we mainly focus on the regulation, control and monitoring of barn processes. From ventilation and climate control, feed and water control, animal weighing, lighting and egg counting to farm management.
Hotraco Agri B.V. was founded in the De Peel region of the Netherlands in 1974. This region has long history of livestock farms, mainly with pigs and poultry. It was also a hotbed of technical industry. With their combination of technical and agricultural background, and a clear understanding of the needs within the agricultural sector, the founders of Hotraco Agri started the company to develop and produce control technology for barns.
Over the past 45 years, Hotraco Agri has grown to become a global player in the field of control technology and automation in the intensive livestock sector. With a worldwide network of dealers and installers, and sales offices in China, Colombia and India, we guarantee our customers worldwide support.
At Hotraco Agri, we believe in the power of innovation and use our innovative systems to meet our customers' current needs. We stay on top of the latest developments and market requirements. Hotraco works in partnership with Wageningen University & Research (WUR) to develop innovations into optimum solutions. Subjects of investigation tie into the core processes of our end users. These include the influence of climate and feed on animal behaviour, animal welfare, growth and manure emissions. We also have close ties with agricultural educational institutes, such as HAS and Aeres universities of applied sciences.
Hotraco Agri works with a worldwide network of partners who market our systems. This includes dealers, installers, OEM and integrators. As a dealer or installer, you are the first point of contact for the farmer. Hotraco Agri always remains involved and is available 24/7 through our service helpdesk.More information
