BIGFARMNET – MANAGEMENT AND CONTROL SYSTEM

Bits and bytes:
even poultry goes Digital!

Sure, broilers, breeders and other poultry do not need computers. But your farm probably does not work efficiently without support from digital devices. BigFarmNet, our unique management software, makes digitalisation easy, fast and secure – and your farm more profitable.

Digitalisation is our and your innovation driver. Big Dutchman identified this important trend as early as in 2005. We used the time we have had since then to provide you with a thought-out and reliable management tool you can use to get your farm ready for the future. More than 12,500 licenses have been activated worldwide, confirming that we are on the right track. Let our experts advise you!

Advantages
BigFarmNet unites all management tasks on your farm into one software and one database. The advantages for your work:

 

Always up-to-date

Use your computer in the barn, your office PC or a mobile device to make inputs.

 

Everything in one software

Broiler feeding, destination feeding for breeders, light, water, climate control and silo and alarm management.

 

More security

The data of all houses are backed up automatically and alarms are managed centrally. Inputs at the PC and in the app are approved and recorded at one central point.

 

Optimised production results and reduced costs

Improve your production results by using efficient analysis tools, and save time and avoid errors thanks to optimised processes.

 

Reliable and future-proof

Benefit from the fact that all BigFarmNet applications are thoroughly tested in the field and continuously further developed by Big Dutchman.

 

Only buy what you need

It does not matter whether you have a large farm complex or a smaller, family-owned farm: BigFarmNet meets any requirement and can be extended whenever necessary.

OPTIMISING PRODUCTION AND ACTING IN LINE WITH REQUIREMENTS

Learn to trust your guts with BigFarmNet!
