With the new update of the innovative Fortica® automation system, Hotraco is anticipating the latest climate trends in the poultry market.
At the end of February, Hotraco Horti delivered the first CERES-FC fertigation unit to the United Kingdom.

Hotraco Agri is introducing a new management program for the pig farmer, called: Prisma Farm Management. The application serves to provide clear and efficient operational management and supports pig farmers in improving animal performance. Prisma Farm Management works hand in hand with the Thomas automation system and is now market-ready!
As a pig farmer, it is important to be able to monitor your animals' growth. A new addition to the Thomas® system is animal weighing. This links the computer to a pig weigher so animal weight can be monitored 24/7. The animal data can also be read out in the Prisma Farm Management program and, as an added feature, the system links this information to the feed and water registration. In short, Thomas® animal weighing gives pig farmers good insight into the performance of their animals at any time of the day, and this system helps them deliver the pigs at the right weight.
With Orange Fan Control, Hotraco Agri introduces an extremely energy-efficient ventilation control for the new generation of adjustable speed, high performance end-wall fans. A big advantage of these adjustable speed end-wall fans is that you can reduce the power consumption (kWh) by adjusting the speed of the fan. Hotraco Agri is the first independent party that achieves the highest power savings with its control system by having these end-wall fans operate at the most optimum speed.
