Tim Forry
Flock Service Technician

With more than 40 years of experience, Tim brings decades of poultry expertise to Dutchland Farms. Tim specializes in layers.

“From the day the chicks arrive at the pullet barn until the birds retire as old fowl in the layer barn, the health, growth and production are closely monitored to ensure that maximum genetic potential is achieved. Regular health checks as well as uniform body weights are compiled to match breeder targets and standards. House environment—temperature, lights, feed and water—are closely observed and recorded to make sure entire flocks are healthy and comfortable. With these requirements being achieved, the proper rations can then be matched to their growth in the rearing stages through to the demands of the production stages of the full grown, mature layer.”
