Rengstorf Family Operation
Rengstorf family operation – a model operation
A pig breeding operation that takes all of the animal's needs into account.
Due to the new husbandry regulations, Andreas Rengstorf and his family came to what was certainly not an easy decision to increase the existing number of sows.
The Rengstorfs have always placed strong emphasis on ensuring that the animals feel comfortable in the stables and that they are kept under the appropriate conditions. Sufficient ventilation has always been important to them. Slots and floors don't get clean and dry on their own. This is the reason that Andreas Rengstorf had two heat exchangers installed in his new fattening stable in 2004.

The fact that the new sow stable and the subsequent conversion of the farm facility to piglet rearing would be equipped with heat exchangers was clear from the beginning. The experience of the last eight years was just so good.
The change to future-oriented LC4 control technology then came very quickly, although some control systems already existed in the farm facility. The possibility to run the entire energy management system in the stables with one system quickly convinced Andreas Rengstorf.

Due to the location, a bio-scrubber had to be installed behind the heat exchanger in the piglet rearing facility. In this case good collaboration between Devrie and hdt quickly led to the right solution. Integrating a bio-scrubber is not always easy, especially during conversion measures. Thanks to good planning the implementation went very well.

The fact that the Rengstorfs pig breeding facility is operated with heart and soul is plain to see. During our visit two weeks ago this became obvious to us by the welfare of the animals.

This is our way of saying thank you for the good collaboration with the Rengstorf family since 2004.
Andreas, it is always a pleasure working with you.
There are some impressions of the stable and the animals in the following pictures and video.
