IEC Poultry was developed in 2015 and 2016 when a new state of the art broiler rearing facility was built in Shropshire. After working in the poultry industry for many years, the decision was made to enter this specialist farming sector to bring together years of experience and learning opportunities in order to grow the healthiest and best performing stock possible.
Renewable and clean
Biomass heating ensures that the sheds' temperatures are maintained efficiently and without using dirty fossil fuel heating systems. Indirect dry heating also reduces shed ammonia levels and site emissions.
Ground source heating is utilised on site to pre-heat ventilation air, reducing the load on the biomass boilers and providing an even temperature and comfortable air movement for the birds. Humidity is also controlled, allowing better bedding floor and air conditions to be maintained
The site was fitted with extensive roof mounted PV generation in 2019 to reduce mains power usage. The poultry houses provide the perfect mounting for modern PV arrays. Following a rise in power requirements and recent turbulence in the energy market IEC are investing in further generation with battery to raise the renewable fraction of our power consumption to nearly 75%
