Jan Haase chose Vogelsang
He uses the UniSpread trailing shoe system to spread slurry on the ground
"I chose Vogelsang because its solution allows me to retrofit my existing machinery. The spreading technology is simple to install, complies with regulations and all for a reasonable price."Jan Haase, operating manager of the Haase Farm, Germany
We've been operating our family farm since 1920 and since the 1980s, we have specialised in dairy cattle and animal feeding production. Today we are managing 120 hectares of land. Every year, we spread around 4,000 m³ of slurry, so what’s particularly important to me is that the slurry spreading technology works with no frills. Everyone, from trainees to experienced employees, should be able to use the technology right from the start without having to familiarise themselves with a complicated computer system.
The sunlight and wind at the North Sea have a major influence on the slurry distribution, so we need spreading technology that deposits the slurry directly on the ground. For this reason, we chose the UniSpread trailing shoe system from Vogelsang, which we used to retrofit our tanker in July 2020 at a good price. The system allows us to apply the slurry precisely, directly on the ground and therefore with low emissions. In this way, we can best provide the plants with the nutrients they need. Vogelsang’s fast and personal service is another advantage alongside its precise slurry spreading technology.
