Weeden Environments Celebrates 15 Years in Business

April 14, 2009- Weeden Environments is excited to announce their 15th year in business. From
its inception in 1994 Weeden Environments has evolved into a global
company, with first class recognition for its innovative products in
the poultry industry.

Weeden
Environments is well known for their Weeden Sprinkler System that keeps
birds alive during periods of extreme heat.  When the Weeden Sprinkler
system is activated, the water droplets hit the birds causing them to
stand up and release captured heat underneath.

This
system was initially sold for dust control and cooling, but the added
benefits were discovered when the birds stand up and walk over to the
water & feed lines after being hit with water droplets.  In
addition to being an effective cooling method, it also promotes
activity which is known to help maintain and increase average flock
weights. 

Founded
as Weeden Sprinkler Systems by Len Weeden after he retired from Hybrid
Turkeys, the company was taken over by his son Kevin in 2003.  Kevin
re-branded the company as Weeden Environments and continues to add
innovative product lines to reduce animal stress, maximize flock yields
and improve operational efficiencies.  

 “As
Weeden Environments’  looks forward to continued success in the future,
we are thrilled to be able to celebrate 15 years, said Kevin Weeden. 
On
behalf of the Weeden Environments team, I would like to thank all of
our employees, customers and vendors, and look forward to seeing our
company evolve alongside the poultry industry over the next 15 years.”
