When Kinross Farm, one of Australia’s leading fresh egg producers, needed to expand their free range egg production, they sought advice from Orient.

In a project that spans three years, Kinross will benefit from state-of-the-art free range layer sheds designed and built to exceed all free range criteria.

Kinross Farm has well-earned reputation for pampering their birds. The free range specification can impose some difficulties in shed design, inefficiencies in energy consumption and ultimately impact on bird production.

Orient optimised the design within the free range constraints by utilising tailored elements including a ramped wintergarden staging area, integrated computer controlled ridge ventilation system and enhanced installation. The net result is a shed that is some two to three degrees cooler in the height of summer.
