In November, a large meeting of agro-industrial complex heads took place at the Administration of the Lipetsk Region. As part of this meeting, Otrada CEO, Patrick Hoffmann, and Head of the Lipetsk Region, Igor Artamonov, signed an investment agreement for the construction of an Artificial Insemination Center for 500 boars in the Stanovlyansky District of the Lipetsk Region.
This ambitious project for Otrada is a huge step forward!
Within the framework of cooperation with PIC, an important milestone was the installation of Schauer boar feeding performance testing stations.
The next step - the construction of an Artificial Insemination Center - will let push genetic improvement on the clients' farms, which will thus greatly benefit from cooperation with Otrada and reinforce Otrada's position as the cutting-edge breeding material supplier in Russia.
The construction of the center will begin in the spring of 2021, its completion is planned in 2 stages: stage 1 - until the end of 2021 (250 boars), stage 2 - until 2023 (500 boars).
In the center, it is planned to produce semen of purebred boars of all three breeds: Landrace (GP, GGP), Yorkshire (GP, GGP) and Duroc (terminal line).
