Hotraco adds new egg counter to its range

Dutch poultry equipment manufacturer, Hotraco has added a new egg counter, the EMEC-12-30, to its existing range of EMEC-12, EMEC-12-20 and EMEC-30-75.

The new EMEC-12-30 egg counter has been specially developed for systems with group housing and has a maximum scan width of 30 cm.

The first 40 new egg counters were recently placed in a Dutch broiler breeder house. The veranda system in place has an egg belt with a width of 25 cm, and was therefore highly suitable for the new EMEC-12-30. The counters ensure that the eggs for hatching are counted per row and per level. The data on the counted eggs are recorded in the ORION computer, and can be read out in the management program Rainbow+.

In addition, the company has taken a new step in order to approach the Chinese market more actively by opening a new office in China, with the name Hotraco Agriculture Systems Beijing Co.,Ltd.

The primary purpose of the local office in Beijing is to support European customers with turnkey projects in China, and secondly to generate more turnover via local producers of barn equipment.
