farming


At Avlscenter Eskegaard A/S, our seven-stage field crop rotation is specifically designed to produce our own supply of special feed for the herds. In particular, wheat, barely and oat are grown here. This ensures nutrient-rich feed and good feed structure. And healthier animals without gut problems results in long lifetimes and high yields.

BIO-SECURITY


Our high standard of quality and bio-security also applies to our farming and feed production. The specially designed feed storage facilities means that we can manage large amounts of crops, which after a period of quarantine, are transported securely to the stables. Other ingredients are also subject to quarantine periods before they are used in production.

  • Implemented integrated operations via feeding with homemade quality grain
  • Feed storage in our own silo plant for extra high bio-security
  • Grain and straw is taken into use 10 weeks after harvest
  • Soya is always taken directly from ships and then kept in quarantine for three weeks – as with other ingredients
  • Secure intake of ingredients in order to avoid contamination from tyres, shoes, etc.
  • Authorised rodent control by Mortalin
  • Own slurry spreading equipment
  • No outdoor storage of feed

OWN MACHINERY & WORKSHOP


Our approximately 900 hectares of land is managed by our own machinery. In other words, here too we are an autonomous company. With a high machine capacity we can act in time and ensure the quality of the raw materials. Our own workshop is responsible for ensuring that our machinery has a high uptime and for the ongoing maintenance of our stall equipment. This is carried out in order to have highest possible standards on all sites.

Avlscenter Eskegaard A/S also owns 56 hectares of forest, which is operated as an extensive natural area, for the benefit of nature, game and local residents.
