Croatia: Minister inaugurates new building for 4,000 pigs
Spaces for 4,000 animals are distributed over three very respectable looking new pig housing facilities, in which approximately 12,000 finishing pigs are expected to pass through per year: Željko Kurkutović, from Slavonski Brod in Croatia, has every reason to be proud of his recently completed piggery project. The modern facilities, which have been equipped by Big Dutchman and are located approximately 200 km south-east of Zagreb directly on the border to Bosnia and Herzegovina, is much more than an eye-catcher in an optical sense. It is, above all impressive in a country where agriculture, generally speaking, is organised on a very small scale. For this reason the Croatian Minister of Agriculture, Božidar Pankretić, was pleased to inaugurate the pig finishing facilities personally, on the occasion of an official open day.
Željko Kurkutović is a convinced Big Dutchman customer. Five years ago, he had a finishing house equipped by Imex-Bjelovar d.o.o, the Big Dutchman Sales Representation in Croatia. The innovative equipment and the reliable service convinced him so firmly that Kurkutović involved Imex-Bjelovar once again in this large-scale project: from the liquid manure system via the ventilation and the housing system to the dry feeding and water supply; all the equipment comes from the world’s leading company in the field of pig management systems.
