With united forces
Ambitious goals in view
As the first step, 440 sows primarily of South African breeding were quartered in the newly adapted stalls. The first piglets were born at the start of May 2020, and by the end of August, the first of the meat was ready for delivery.
All steps take place on the farm: breeding, slaughtering and refrigeration.
Particular value is placed at the farm on the quality and correct composition of the feed for the pigs. It is prepared at the local feed mill according to a special recipe specified by the farm and then transported to the farm. The various areas – pig farm, slaughterhouse, transport, land management, marketing and management – now provide work for roughly 50 employees, all dedicated to quickly achieving the ambitious goal of producing 12,000 kilograms of meat per week.
