Reliability is the greatest characteristic of food manufacturers and human health producers, and we demand special attention to regular testing of fresh meat and our experts constantly control and test the meat during the production process.
Maximum utilization of the feed and growth in pig farming and farrowing are important production features, which are influenced by the temperature, humidity, number of pigs in a group, type of floor, size of the pigsties etc. There are better results when there is a fewer number of pigs - up to 25 pigs per cage. Temperature is also important in pig farming and farrowing, as is the size and the construction of the breeding boxes and piglet boxes.
The most feasible method of pig housing is in the favourable combination of climate factors and financial interests of the producer. On our farms (mini farms), pigs are bred in optimal housing tailored to EU standards, which produces the best growth in pig fattening.
The capacity of the farms varies from 500 to 1600 of pigs per month (4x100 and 4x400 per week).
The basis for the successful and profitable production of pigs is the Nucleus breeding and multiplication farms with GGP-GP sows of high genetic potential. The housing is designed to provide maximum production results with good management and first-rate genetics.
The farms are in complete compliance of the standards of protection of the environment and the standards of animal farming. All this is in compliance with EU regulations in this area.
The Nucleus farms for the production of breeding gilts of the F1 generation following the world-famous Norwegian Landrace technology and selective breeding provide high quality piglets which are resilient to disease, highly fertile and provide optimal lean to fat proportion.
Landrace is the most common breed of white lean pigs. It is somewhat longer than the large Yorkshire breed, with lopped ears, smaller head and thinner, weaker legs. It has good fertility, the piglets have large weights at birth, and the breed has good conversion of feed. It is suitable for crossbreeding with other breeds for the purpose of the improvement of the maternal traits and resilience (Yorkshire) and leanness (Pietrain and Duroc). There are more sub-breeds of the Landrace breed, where our most common sub-breeds are the Swedish and the German variants. Also available are the English, Belgian, Dutch, Danish, Finnish, American variants etc.
As of yet, this is the supreme breed of pigs regarding fertility, period until maturation, feed consumption, growth rate and fattening rate, as well as pork quality.
Yorkshire pigs can immediately be recognized among other breeds. This breed has quite long, white, sparse bristle, thin and elastic reddish skin, almost straight spine, deep visceral cavity, short and strong legs and quite small, always upright ears. There are three types of Yorkshire pigs: small, medium and large. The difference between certain types is in the size, especially the length of the body and the shape of the head and the snout.
This breed was created by crossbreeding the Belgian Landrace with the English Yorkshire pig. Pietrain pigs are medium sized, white coloured pigs with black asymmetrical spots all over. Beside the piebald variant, there is a type without pigmented skin and with light bristle. This type has shorter legs in relation to most breeds, and it has muscular and stocky back and hams, so it looks chunky. Back muscles, and the muscles in shoulders and hams are often pronounced.
The lean percentage in halves is around 65%, which makes Pietrain the leanest pig breed. In one month the piglets grow up to 6-7 kilograms. Mature boars in breeding condition weigh 280 kilograms and measure 85 centimetres in height, while sows measure 220 kilos and 80 centimetres.
Today's Duroc has a large body constitution, it is longer, leaner and more fertile than the previous variants of the breed. It is significantly more resilient than other lean breeds. It has a straight spine, sometimes slightly curved. The skin and bristle colour is in various shades of red.
The fertility is inconsistent and the sow farrows 8-12 piglets.
Duroc has good fattening and butchering features, so it is used for crossbreeding with other breeds for the purpose of improving the percentage of the intramuscular fat. Duroc has 2-3% of intramuscular fat, which is more than optimal, and therefore it is combined with breeds of lesser percentage of fat (Pietrain, the Belgian and the German Landrace).
