Ukraine's Ovostar opens new poultry house



Ovostar has recently opened its new poultry house, no.17 that aims to maximise production volume, and is subsumed under reconstruction programme for existing production facilities on a Vasylkiv production site.


"Our company's leading specialists and independent experts were involved in the reconstruction process. The building is fully equipped in accordance with international standards for laying hens, including the modern microclimate, ventilation, automatic watering, feeding and egg collection systems," said Vitaly Voron, production director of Ovostar Union Group.


On August 31, right after the facility disinfection was completed, the first batch of Hy-Line White 36 chicken was placed in the poultry house no.17. Fifteen thousand heads of young laying hens will be transferred every day from the growing laying hen sites in Saltanovka and Nagornaya villages to the new facility. The transfer will be completed by September 15.


The new poultry house is fully equipped with the facilities by one of the world's leading producers - the German company Salmet. The building is 9 meter high, 18 meter wide, 139 meter long. The cages are placed in 12 tiers. The planned capacity of the facility is 309 thousand bird places, which makes it one of the largest not only in Ukraine but also in Europe. In September, it is planned to install an automatic egg collection line which will transport eggs from the facility to the sorting plant.
