What do we do?
Since 1992 we’ve got an ostrich selection farm of about 120 breeder birds. We have a capacity of about 1.000 ostriches.
Professional Ostrich Farm
For over 25 years we have been selecting first-class breeder birds in order to raise genetically strong and healthy ostriches. This results in a higher fertility rate and an improved quality of our end products (e.g. meat and eggs).
We strive to raise our birds in the most ecological friendly way, taking into account animal welfare, quality, safety and profitability. To evaluate and optimize our goals, we’ve been collecting all kinds of data for over more than 15 years.
We continuously check the body, eating & drinking conditions and examine the feathers and faeces on a regular basis. We also look at the matches between females and male (mating compatibility).
Available on our farm (export worldwide)
We export our ostriches to countries all over the world and we fulfill all necessary documents (health certificate). Before the birds leave, there is an inspection by a veterinary (who’s assigned by the government (FAVV)) to check if the birds are ready to leave.
