Thai poultry expansion announced
Thai broiler producer Betagro has commissioned a new hatchery that will add two million chicks per week to its capacity.

Technology provider Pas Reform will build the new hatchery at Chai Badan in Lopburi Province.

It will include 54 SmartSetPro setters, with a maximum setting capacity of more than six million hen eggs, and will incorporate modular design, Pas Reform’s Vortex-based airflow principle, Adaptive Metabolic Feedback and the Energy Saving Module, to optimise uniformity and climate conditions for each batch of eggs.

The setters will be supported by 54 SmartHatchPro hatchers, each equipped with SmartWatch, which, through CO2-sensitive automation, monitors and adjusts the hatching process to optimise the hatch window for every cycle.

Hatchery operations will be fully supported by Pas Reform’s SmartCenterPro hatchery information system at every level, providing end-to-end real-time monitoring, control and reporting, to enhance workflow efficiencies and quality control and deliver complete traceability for every hatch.

In addition to its single-stage incubation facilities, the new hatchery will be equipped with hatchery automation and climate control systems from Pas Reform.
