Philippines: Marshall Poultry chooses single-stage

Marshall Poultry in the Philippines has found enhanced growth in converting to the use of Smart single stage incubation from Dutch hatchery technology company Pas Reform.

Business owner Ruben Tan says he is “very optimistic” of an early return on his investment.

Marshall Poultry Farms commissioned a brand new hatchery complex at San Vicente in the Bulacan region in September, opening the new complex with 6 SmartSet™ setters and 6 SmartHatch™ hatchers this year to operate in Single Stage.

Pas Reform’s project team provided advices to the development of the new hatchery, to include detailed site planning, fine layouts, ventilation specifications and the installation plus commissioning of setters and hatchers.

“For us, the rising cost of multi-stage incubation was a major concern”, says Tan. “Single Stage incubation has enhanced performance throughout the integration, with improved chick quality and vitality, better feed conversion and ultimately great performance from a higher yielding broiler.”
