JOZ is the originator of modern slurry handling, internationally renowned according to the slogan ‘The Home of the clean stable'. More than 65 years ago, in 't Zand in West Friesland, Jan Oostwouder originated and designed a system on which slurry was transported to the muckheap via a continuous chain system. This brought an end to the labour-intensive and time-consuming activity of manual mucking out. It was no surprise that other cattle farmers also wanted the system. Jan established JOZ and started selling his invention. And with success, too.

Today, slurry handling systems from JOZ are to be found all over the world. JOZ employs a staff of +/- 60 and is based in Westwoud, the Netherlands.
