Owen Whittal, Herefordshire
Owen, along with his Farm Manager Dennis Redfern, rear around 34,000 turkeys on site at any one time. Birds arrive at 2 weeks, finishing at 19 weeks, with an average weight of 18.5kg. Already a successful beef, sheep and arable farmer, Owen decided in 2001 to diversify into Turkeys. The site consisted of sheds built in the 1970’s and has been extensively refurbished by Powell’s to produce first class facilities for his poultry operation.
• Powell’s have re-furbished the original buildings that were on the site when purchased in 2001.
• For Owen, a special feature of Powell’s is that they will complete refurbishment work, where other suppliers are only interested in demolishing to re-build.
