Hellmann Open Day - Thursday 17th January 2013

January saw the completion of an LA System's Hellmann SO24 enriched collony at Heal Eggs Ltd after 12 weeks of hard work and preparation. The colony consists of 4 rows of 9 tiers separated into 3 floors. Holding a colossal 85,000 birds, it is considered to be the biggest enriched colony in the UK. On Thursday 17th January 2013, LA Systems held an open day to celebrate this prestigious project right in the heart of Shawbury, Shropshire.

Guests started to filter into the building around 11am, immediately being greeted by the LA Systems team and served with either a hot or cold drink supplied by Hammons Catering. Free to walk around the building with the LA Systems team and representatives from Hellmann providing technical support upon request. Guests congregated on the first floor for the start of the tour, slowly making their way to the second floor to see the Lubing egg conveyor and then up to the third tier where the huge structure finishes. Heading down to the bottom of the shed guests were shown the back end of the colony, seeing the manure belts and then led outside to the rear of the building to view the manure conveyor and the towering Collinson feed silos. Along with free drinks Hammonds Catering also served the guests with hot pork baps with stuffing and apple sauce, which were fully enjoyed by all. After chatting with the LA Systems team, and amongst themselves, guests began leaving the building around 4pm, many making comments on the fact they were 'truly amazed at the size and magnificence of the equipment' and showing a lot of interest in our enriched colony equipment range.

The event had the privelege of being covered by reporter Simon Wragg from the magazine Poultry World, the equipment will be featured in a double page spread in the Poultry World's 'Building Special' edition in March 2013, so be sure to get your copy for more in-depth coverage. Finally LA Systems would like to thank Mr Heal and Heal Eggs Ltd for allowing us to hold the open day on their premises, Simon from Poultry World, Hammonds Catering for providing the delicious food service and finally to our guests for helping celebrate this momentous day.
