Impangele is the main layer unit under Glen Arum Farms producing over 400,000 eggs daily. Each of the farm’s 18 sheds are automated from temperature controls, automated feeding systems, to egg conveyors, which run into an HACCP approved grading station. Once the eggs are graded, they are stored, packed and graded through a state-of-the-art Distribution Warehouse. The warehouse distributes eggs nationally through a fleet of over 20 trucks. The farm also produces its own high-spec rations and the mill produces over 2000 tons a month of computer calculated precision ensuring that every load that goes out to the flock, whether it be by tractor or truck, is fed exactly as planned.
In addition to Impangele, Kemell Farm boasts one of the largest layer houses in South Africa. Kemell sheds are the apex of poultry farming and are regulated to optimal temperatures using techniques such as wet walls for cooling and venturi effects for minimum ventilation heating. Feeding, lighting, to air movement are regulated and automated on Skov computer systems. Daily figures are graphed using everything from daily grams consumed per bird, egg output numbers to bodyweights and egg weights making sure the hens are kept in a happy environment. All production from this facility is transported daily to the neighbouring farm Impangele where it undergoes the grading process.
As a combined production total, these two farms produce a staggering 17.5 million dozen eggs annually.
