A new broiler house in Belgium has been automated with the touch screen Fortica® system. This barn, 110 by 24 metres, is located in Wallonia, just outside Charleroi. The barn houses 58,000 chicks for a period of 6 weeks. The innovative Fortica® system, which is integrated into a switch panel, gives poultry farmers total control over their barn processes. Among other things, the system provides a perfect climate, good air distribution, LED lighting, feed weighing, water consumption registration and controls the winches for the feed and drink lines. The switch panel is also equipped with an extensive ACA-10N alarm system.
The FORTICA-PB is a climate and management computer that is especially suited for stables with floor housing for broilers.
