Big Dutchman Agriculture Nigeria introduces layer management system


Big Dutchman Agriculture Nigeria Limited, a subsidiary of Big Dutchman International, recently developed an agricultural management system for egg production in Nigeria, Pulse NG reported.


The innovation, EasyStep56 layer cage, aims to support African farmers and small-scale entrepreneurs in the development of Africa's egg production industry.


The EasyStep56 layer cage is a management system for layer chicken. It is available in two handy packages with a total weight of 55 kilograms, aiding comfortable transportation.


MD/CEO Thomas Ogundiran said, "The EasyStep56 layer cage will encourage small/medium scale entrepreneur to start egg production on a small scale. They can begin from one unit and gradually increase to more units as their capacity increases. The set-up of this cage is very easy and everyone can do it".


Only three tools are required to set up the cage. They are pliers, an open-ended spanner and a hexagon spanner. All parts of the cage are pre-drilled and pre-cut upon supply.


Adebolu Fatunmise, national sales manager added that the major benefits of the system in comparison with traditional barn egg production systems are the 56 capacity layer cage, 20% egg increase, low mortality rate, durability, efficiency, accurate feed and water supply, no feed wastage, manure removal, soil fertilisation, simple assembly and efficient production.


"EasyStep56 can be put into operation immediately with no electricity required. Interested farmers can reach me on or 09087256872", Fatunmise said.
