THE FIRST BATCH OF CHICKEN DELIVERED TO THE BROILER PLANT NEAR KRASNOZNAMENSK
This spring, more than 90,000 day-old broiler chickens will settle in three newly built poultry farms of the new poultry plant of the agricultural holding DolgovGrupp in Febralskoye village of the Krasnoznamensk municipality. The first batch of 30,000 birds arrived from the Czech Republic on Wednesday, 21 March. In the following week it was planned to import another 33,000 chickens. In total, the production is designed for 21 fully automated poultry houses as well as dressing departments and packing shops, a number of infrastructure facilities and even a glass gallery for visitors in one of the buildings. - That is the first experience of the partner company importing live birds in the region from the Czech Republic and it turned out to be quite successful, said Irina Dukhovich, chief veterinarian of the poultry plant. - The broiler chickens ROSS 308 are a new activity for us requiring several other operation methods than laying hens at the Gurievsk Poultry Farm. Within 40 days, a bird should gain from 1.8 kg to 2.5 kg of weight. It is worth noting that we do not use either hormones or other harmful additives to farm chickens. Weight gain is due to an exceptionally well-chosen diet. Moreover, we only use our own feed based on the high content of corn also grown in the fields of the agro-holding company. This guarantees environmental compatibility and high quality of our broilers’ flesh. Due to the fact that in the new production in the village Big Dutchman, the chicks will be in conditions suitable for life and growth under constant temperature conditions. The new broiler poultry farm in the Fevralskoye village is represented by the fully automated production of a closed type with a three-stage water conditioning and purification system and even an indoor air compressing system. DolgovGrupp will appear on the shelves of the city and region of Kaliningrad in May this year. In the region’s supermarkets, they will be sold under the well-known brand Kurochkino.
