Miratorg invests 4.6 billion roubles to increase its feedlots capacity by 70% to 200 thousand heads
Bryansk, June 27 – Miratorg, Russia largest beef producer, starts construction of the country’s largest feedlot with a total capacity of 80 000 heads.
The company plans to increase a total number of Aberdeen Anguses on its three feedlots in Bryansk and Oryol regions to 200 000 heads simultaneously.
The new feedlot is a key element of vertically integrated production chain: cattle fattened here are fed corn in order to increase the energy density of the diet and guarantee high carcass-marbleness.
Miratorg continues to expand the production of high-quality beef: the cattle herd has already exceeded 600 thousand heads and will grow to 1 million heads by 2024. The new feedlot will be also specialized in feeding Wagyu breed, which is characterized by super-high marbling of meat. The design of the new feedlot was developed taking into account the special aspects of maintenance and finishing of this breed: a special ration, a longer period of stay on the feedlot and less mobility of animals. It is planned that Miratorg’s Wagyu beef will be supplied to the domestic market and for export.
The total area of the feedlot is over 349 hectares, which includes 14 covered lines for cattle with slatted concrete floors, a storehouse for concentrated and loose feed and premixes, an administrative building, a garage, an animal treatment facility, a veterinary hospital, a water intake facility, etc. For design and construction of facilities, the company used the experience of world leaders of beef cattle breeding – the USA and Canada.
