Research and Development

using innovative technologies

Our research and development activities are based on

  • domestic and international technical literature,
  • the results of research carried out by raw material manufacturers,
  • nutrition experiments and our professionals’ and technicians’ practical experience
  • and we also substantially rely on the technical / professional experience of the professionals and technicians of our partners.

Our premix and feed mixes recipes are developed on the basis of  most recent research and practical results and international recommendations.

Pig farm at Lovászpatona

world class production results

The objectives of the construction of the test farm and its continued development in 2013, with a total capital expenditure of HUF 600 million:

  • testing products before offering to partners at a farm of 200 sows,
  • supplying our external orders for feed, pig farming technologies and animal health services, supporting product development projects.

Our new fixed investment projects

Fermentation plant in Szalkszentmárton

The objective of the project: to adapt and improve the innovative wet fermentation technology based on domestic grain and protein resources and their by-products to improve livestocks’ production and animal health status.

We also aim to extend the benefits of the fermented product to farms using dry feeding technology as well, by coating solid substrates with the fermented raw materials.

Start of project: mid-2021.

Creating new laboratory

Together with the construction of our fermentation plant at Szalkszentmárton in 2021 we also put in place a new laboratory of European standards in Hungary.

Our services will be available for both our partners and external clients. The analytical methods to be used will make it possible to efficiently and effectively support our partners’ work.

Construction of an experimental poultry farm

Besides its existing experimental pig farm, the Agrofeed Group is planning to construct a multifunctional experimental poultry farm complex to study the impacts of different technological parameters (besides nutrition) on productivity in three separate poultry keeping units simultaneously. Both the architectural solutions to be applied and the cutting edge technology to be installed will enable the maximised production in terms of volume and standards as well as economic efficiency. A special function of the prospective test farm is that its visitors’ centre will give an insight into the production processes as well.

Our plants
