Perfect feed for our chickens!
The production of feed is one of the focal points in animal husbandry. Only deep expertise and careful work of the millers, paired with precise technology of the mill, ensure the high quality of our feed. There is a close collaboration between the employees in our poultry-branch, external experts in poultry-alimentation and veterinaries to make sure that the feed is appropriated exactly to the needs of our chickens.
We feed our chickens a mixture that consists mainly of corn from our own agricultural production and complies with highest quality standards. The main steps of our feed-production are:
1. Reception and storage: Check the quality and keep it up!
A truck takes the corn to the reception. At the reception we take a sample which we check in terms of quality and humidity. We clean, weigh and dry the corn if need be and put it into silos where it can be stored for a long time before it is processed further.
2. Weighing, grinding and mixing: Make perfect feed!
Each type of chicken has special needs. Their feed has to match the age and the way they are being kept, which is why we make special feed for each group of chickens. We use a special recipe, according to which we weigh the materials and put them in the mill. Then we grind and mix them appropriately for the chickens.
3. Distribution: Deliver punctually!
Finally the feed is delivered to the chicken-houses in special silo-vehicles and put into the storage-silos with the help of air-pressure. Since most of the houses are very close to the mills, the distances are quite short.
Quality feed makes for healthy chickens!
Because we use raw materials from our own fields, produce the feed on location and have our own logistics department, we know what happens at every step of the way and can be 100% sure that our chickens receive highest quality-feed. At the same time we can prevent infections with very strict hygienic rules.
If and when we have to buy raw materials, we always collaborate with long-term partners. With supplier audits our quality managers help us obtain safe products.
