On-premises industrial laboratories are equipped with the most advanced facilities, which enable high accuracy chemical, technical and bacteriological tests. The following physical and technical parameters are determined in the course of incoming materials control: moisture, colour and smell. The next step is the chemical tests on the content of protein, fat, fiber, calcium, phosphorus, ash and chlorine. For determination of the vitamin and amino acid composition there is a high-liquid chromatograph in use. The level of microelement content in the raw material and mixed feed is analysed as well.
The pig farms of Tambov Bacon LLC are located in the Tambov and Belgorod regions. Their total designed capacity is 207 thousand tons of live weight pork per year.
The Company’s pig farms operate in compliance with world standards and use advanced pig production and feeding technologies. The production facilities of Meat Business Division of Rusagro Group represent modern and ecologically safe commercial farms with a high level of automation.
The facilities in the Belgorod and Tambov regions are operated in compliance with the principles of environmental protection. All necessary incentives are conducted in accordance with the standard norms and regulations. Regular ecological and analytical measurements are performed at all the existing sites within the industrial environmental control procedure.
Special attention at the farms is given to observance of biosafety requirements. All the production facilities are operated in the closed-type mode and are equipped with the disinfecting barriers for trucks and cars and sanitary inspection rooms for the staff. In order to enter the operating area, it is obligatory for the staff to take a shower and put on a special uniform. The traffic of vehicles is also arranged with observance of bio-safety requirements. Depending on the route, a vehicle can be washed in the washing chamber, equipped with drying facilities, several times a day.
The system of manure removal and waste disposal is used at the farms. Manure is accumulated in the storage ponds for quarantine and further disposal. As a result, obtained organic fertilizers are applied to the agricultural lands using the delivery hose system and are injected into soil with the immediate covering, being equally distributed along the field. Manure application as a fertilizer to the fields of the Company allows to obtain synergetic effect from two business areas due to yield increase of the cultivated crops with preservation of soil fertility, as well as the reduction of costs for the purchase of fertilizers.
Manure application is provided by high-tech equipment within the soil. The technological process (the quality and quantity of the liquid fertiliser applied) is controlled by the indicators of the devices used for manure application and by the GPS-navigation system.
Prior to soil application, manure is accumulated and stored in the isolated lagoons, which helps to avoid environmental pollution. In order to provide ecological monitoring and follow the modern environmental requirements every commercial farm has its monitoring well to check the status of ground water and to have the immediate response to the possible environmental changes and as a result to take appropriate measures. The technology is environmentally safe and eliminates the possibility of soil pollution.
In 2016 Tambov Bacon LLC carried out voluntary certification of liquid and manure effluents at commercial farms, which is demonstrated by the Liquid Organic Fertilizers compliance certificate. Governmental supervisory authorities perform regular inspections of the production facilities in our Company.
Several construction project of new farms in the Tambov region have been executed since the end of 2016. In 2017 it was decided to increase the project capacity from 85 to 96 thousand tons of live weight pork per year. The new configuration of the project includes:
- 5 commercial farms with a capacity of 96 thousand tons of live weight pork;
- nucleus farm for 3,200 purebred sows;
- а mixed feed plant capacity increase from 370 to 710 thousand tons of mixed feed per year;
- grain storage capacity increase by means of grain elevator construction with a capacity of 140 thousand tons and the storage area construction for grain storage in silo bags having the capacity of 70 thousand tons. The total volume of pork produced will be processed at the Company`s own Slaughter and Meat Processing Plant.
Slaughter and Meat Processing Plant is located in Borshchevka village, Tambov region; it was inaugurated in 2015. The plant consists of the following production areas: slaughter, deboning and packing areas, case ready, and a separate rendering plant, including all stages of processing and manufacture of final products.
The designed capacity of the slaughter facility amounts to 1.95 million pigs/year (450 pigs/hour for slaughter and 350 pigs/hour for deboning). There are envisaged potentials for slaughter capacity increase up to 500 pigs/hour.
The modern method of pig slaughtering guarantees absence of stress for the animals. The highest level of hygiene, work process safety and ergonomics are also integral parts of production process, along with a high speed of operational performance and economic efficiency.
Slaughter area: 450 pigs/hour The equipment of the slaughter area is produced in Europe using advanced technologies. All the equipment used for slaughtering and further deboning of carcasses is certified in accordance with the European and Russian hygiene standards and fire safety rules.
