Creekside Poultry Farm - Haldimand County

Creekside Poultry Farm knows how to get things squeaky clean. Cleaning out a chicken barn is not an easy job, but Hans Veurink found a way to dramatically reduce his labour and time with a simple tool. He developed a blade-mounted squeegee that cleans off wet floors after a high-pressure wash. The system is easy to use and affordable. It has been sold to more than 80 other farmers and the market continues to grow. By wiping out the extra work, this innovation makes it easier to increase the frequency of barn cleanings, improving the impact on food safety and animal welfare.
