Ventilation hose for manure transport

The jury awarded pig farmer Mark Steentjes (NL) from Gelderland’s Etten’s hygiene thinking with a prestige prize of 2.500 euro. Steentjes wants to avoid polluted air from the vehicles used to load manure at his company to enter his stable via the air inlet. This is why he has secured a fire hose to the manure transport ventilation system, making sure the air from the manure wagon is released at a convenient place. Again, this innovation is perfectly suitable for other sectors too. It is a capstone where hygiene is concerned, according to jury member Robert Bodde from Boerderij: “The other bio security measures should already be effectively implemented in order for this measure to add anything extra.”
