Our company is today one of the market leaders in pig production. At one time we take care of about 4.200 sows and we annually produce 120 000 pigs. We are producing 90.000 slaughter pigs (sold at 110kg) and 30.000 piglets (sold at 25kg). Main part of our production is sold to Slovak slaughterhouses.
Wherever possible our company is following multi-siting production principle where sows and fatteners are in separated locations.
We produce pigs in 4 farms. Since 2001 all of our farms went through major renovation of production facilities in which we now operate according worldwide best practices.
Pig production cycle consists of 4 phases:
1. insemination of sow;
3. weaning piglets;
4. growing weaners to slaughter pig.
The whole process since insemination until sales of slaughter pig takes typically 42-43 weeks. According to production cycle we also distinguish between reproduction and fatteners farms.
Production site in Jesenské (Farm Domafala, see picture bellow) belongs to reproduction farms where inseminations and farrowings are conducted. Here we have all sows and piglets till they are weaned.
Fatteners farms, where weaned piglets are put after weaning from the sow, are located in Dolné Semerovce, Svodín and Bruty (see picture bellow).
Farm in Ipeľský Sokolec (see picture below) is strictly quarantine site for purchased sows before they are put into regular herd in reproduction farms.
