Unlocking the Secret to Poultry Production Excellence: The ESA 3000 Heat Exchanger
As poultry producers, we understand that managing litter quality is a crucial puzzle piece in the pursuit of peak performance. Wet litter not only hampers growth but can also lead to a host of challenges, from foot lesions to soaring energy costs. Enter the game-changer: the ESA 3000 heat exchanger, a revolutionary technology that not only tackles litter moisture control but also sparks a revolution in sustainability, animal welfare, and overall farm profitability. Join us as we delve into real-world experiences from seasoned industry experts Colin Breukelman and Dave Lutton and witness firsthand how the ESA 3000 unleashes a new era of excellence in poultry production.”
Colin Breukelman’s Story
Colin Breukelman is a seasoned broiler producer from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. In October of 2022, he decided to invest in three ESA 3000 heat exchangers for his 10,000-square-foot barn. The results were nothing short of remarkable.
With the higher humidity levels experienced on Canada’s west coast, managing litter quality has been a constant challenge for Colin. However, after installing the ESA 3000 heat exchangers, the litter condition in his barn saw immediate and significant improvements. Flock Mortality through 37 days was an impressive 1.5%, outperforming the industry average and Colin’s previous average of 3-4%. The birds thrived under the improved conditions, attaining a healthy average weight of 2.5 kg, and the Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR) improved to an outstanding 1.42.
Not only did the ESA 3000 positively impact the flock’s performance, but it also brought substantial financial benefits. With carcass condemns at the processing plant reduced to a mere 0.5%, Colin received excellent feedback on the overall bird quality. Additionally, the improved product quality translated to tangible financial gains, with Colin receiving an impressive overall return of $0.37 per pound.
Colin reflected on his decision, saying, ‘The ESA 3000 exceeded my expectations in every aspect. It not only improved the litter condition and flock performance but also had a direct positive impact on my bottom line. The investment in ESA 3000 heat exchangers was undoubtedly one of the best decisions I’ve made for my poultry production.’
Colin’s success story echoes the sentiment shared by many satisfied users of the ESA 3000. By delivering outstanding results in litter moisture control, flock performance, and financial returns, this innovative technology has proven to be a game-changer for poultry producers seeking to optimize their operations and ensure the well-being of their birds.”
“The investment in ESA 3000 heat exchangers was undoubtedly one of the best decisions I’ve made for my poultry production.”
Dave Lutton’s Story
Dave Lutton, a seasoned broiler grower with seven years of experience, initially had reservations about using heat exchangers in his poultry barn. Like many producers, he was concerned about the effectiveness and practicality of integrating such technology into his existing system. However, his curiosity was piqued when he came across the ESA 3000 heat exchangers through his equipment supplier.
His skepticism quickly dissipated after installing the ESA 3000s in his 25,000-square-foot barn. Dave was impressed with the cost savings and the self-cleaning and flushing system, which addressed his concerns about maintenance and operational efficiency. In his own words, Dave reports, ‘I’ll admit, I was hesitant about trying out heat exchangers initially. But the ESA 3000 proved me wrong. The self-cleaning feature made it hassle-free to maintain, and I didn’t have to worry about frequent cleaning or downtime.’
Improved Animal Welfare and Sustainability
In conclusion, the ESA 3000 heat exchanger stands as a testament to innovation and progress in poultry production. Colin Breukelman and Dave Lutton’s success stories underscore the profound impact of this cutting-edge technology on litter quality, animal welfare, and overall farm sustainability. By redefining the norms of moisture control, minimizing condemned carcasses, and achieving unprecedentedly low mortality rates, the ESA 3000 is more than a tool; it’s a catalyst for transformation. As we continue to strive for excellence in our industry, the ESA 3000 provides a beacon of hope, leading us toward a future where top-notch performance, animal welfare, and environmental stewardship harmoniously coexist. Embrace the ESA 3000 and embrace the future of poultry production.”
