When Marcel Jr. Laviolette decided to upgrade his chicken facilities, he had a lengthy wish list based on advice from industry experts: insulation, computerized controls for production and maintenance, and LED lighting to boost egg production. To achieve all this, he created a single, state-of-the-art facility that checked-off all those boxes. His investment paid off with improved feed management boosting egg production and reducing the number of cracked eggs. Better insulation, feed conversion and energy efficient lighting has led to more comfort for his chickens, while remaining cost efficient. Sometimes, putting all your eggs in one basket really does pay off.
