Philippines-based Masagana Farm installs Royal Pas Reform Smart™ technology
Philippines-based egg production enterprise Masagana Farm is developing its first hatchery facility – to provide its own supply of layer hens for its highly successful fresh-egg sales operation. Based on Royal Pas Reform’s integrated hatchery solutions, when complete, it will provide the family run company with the capacity to produce up to 2 million day-old female chicks per year.
Located in Bulacan, near Manila on the Philippines’ main island of Luzon, Masagana Farm is installing 6x SmartSetPro™-2 setters, including Adaptive Metabolic Feedback (AMF™) and Energy Saving Module (ESM™), and 2x SmartHatchPro™ hatchers. The company plans to carefully manage the facility’s output to meet consumer demand for table eggs, to avoid flooding the market and protect the industry.
Willy Uy, Masagana Farm’s founder and CEO, comments: “Our goal is backward integration and self-sufficiency. Before this project, we purchased day-old chicks from other hatchery companies and had to rely on their delivery schedules. Their quality is top notch, and we are very happy with their service, but we now want to control the input date as much as we can.”
