TRANSPORT OF DAY-OLD CHICKS & EGGS

It is well known, especially in broilers, that a good and uniform start of the flock is essential for later performance. The first few days of a chicken’s life are important for the development of the bird – a good start and an optimal development in the first week is a crucial factor in achieving good end results.

With more than 40 years experience in day-old chick and egg transport, Heering offers technology and services to transport chickens or eggs from hatchery to farm in such a way that they will have a good, strong start at the farm.

At Heering we know that transport is more than just a truck. Incubators and hatchery equipment operate in a relatively safe indoor environment unlike trucks that operate in an unpredictable outdoor environment. Our team has an extensive background in professional road transport, vehicle management and the poultry industry.

KEY ISSUES IN CHICK TRANSPORT

The health and productivity of poultry can show a large variation under different circumstances. Understanding
the effects of the conditions leading to this variation helps to balance the inputs for a better performance.

THE ROLE OF THE TRUCK DRIVER

Did you know that truck drivers have an important role in day-old chick transport? And, that they can help you to improve the transport performance of your hatchery? Good drivers take care of their truck and the live animals on board, which improves farm delivery performance.

CHICK TRANSPORT IN WINTER

One of the main challenges in live chicken transport is maintaining the ideal climate. With the winter ahead of us, it’s time to prepare for cold weather conditions.
