Agroholding «BEZRK-Belgrankorm» launches a new advanced hatchery facility with Smart™ technologies

LLC Belgrankorm is part of parent company Bezrk-Belgrankorm, a large and diversified agri-business established in 1998, which has more than 40 divisions. Located in the Belgorod and Novgorod regions of Russia, its main activities are the production of poultry, pork, beef, milk, grain and animal feed.

LLC Belgrankorm has become the first poultry company in Russia to adopt Royal Pas Reform’s SmartCare™ package– providing five-years’ preventative maintenance and hatchery support.

The new hatchery, at v. Zavidovka, Yakovlevskiy district, Belgorod, was opened in Q1 2020 after both reconstruction of old and construction of new facilities. It is equipped with advanced Smart™ integrated hatchery solutions from Royal Pas Reform. The estimated capacity of the new hatchery is 42 million eggs per year, and as a result the capacity of the entire facility has increased to 92,5 million eggs per year.

Royal Pas Reform supplied, installed and commissioned a range of its single-stage incubation technologies. This includes 20 SmartPro™ 6 setters, 28 SmartHatchPro™ hatchers and the SmartCenterPro™ hatchery management software.

SmartCenterPro™’s track and trace module will record every moment of the hatching eggs and day-old chicks – from the origin of the eggs, to the receipt of chicks at customers’ farms. This includes cycle reports from every hatch, which incorporate individual day-old chick weight estimation and uniformity scoring for each batch produced.

“Agroindustrial holding Belgrankorm is a future-focused company,” said director for eggs production, Andrey Nepokrytov. “This program takes us up to another level. With optimized, efficient and uninterrupted performance in every area of the hatchery we will achieve our goal of producing the highest number of best-quality chicks.”

In 2020 Belgrankorm plans to produce more than 160 million hatching eggs for production over 315,000 tonnes of live weight poultry meat.

“We keep pace with new trends,” says Mikhail Vyacheslavovich Yakushev, general director of LLC Belgrankorm. “We focus on the quality and uniformity of chickens and pay great attention to achieving the highest standards of hygiene and biological safety throughout the hatchery.”

Wim Schaafsma, Pas Reform Russia’s General Director, commented: “We are delighted to work with Belgrankorm again to deliver its advanced integrated hatchery facility at v.Zavidovka. It is a technology led, forward looking company, As the first in Russia to adopt our SmartCare™ package, it now leads the way in harnessing the operational benefits of advanced hatchery care and support.”
