Posted on: August 1, 2017

NEW to Alpha Inc.

 

Alpha Poultry and Livestock Equipment Inc. is bringing new cutting-edge technology that is both durable and versatile to the 11 western states.

 

Progress and Innovation in the Poultry Industry

 

Originating from the Netherlands, Volito proves to be the veteran in cage-free products for egg production. With roots dating back to 1989, Volito began their quest to be the leaders in the industry by starting off with their aviaries and advancing to nesting products for floor production evolving to what we know today as “cage-free” systems.

 

In November of 2016, CTB acquired Volito from the Dutch to be able to provide such advanced technology to Poultry Farmers in the United States. Doing so, U.S. Poultry Farmers are able to cater to consumers that are looking for cage-free products.

 

With the U.S floor layer market being distinct from other parts of the world, the new partnership between Chore-Time and Volito has constructed a new floor layer nest that composed specifically for the market in the United States.
