KSG Agro has started to form a strategic three-month supply of raw materials for the production of compound feeds at its own feed mill. The purpose of this step is to ensure the smooth operation of the pig farm, taking into account the risk of interruptions in the supply of feed ingredients due to the temporary rupture of logistics chains in wartime.
According to the Chairman of the Board of Directors of KSG Agro Sergiy Kasianov, in order to fulfill this task, the supplier of premixes for the production of feed – Cargill has further increased the shipment quotas. The holding delivers the supplier’s products used for feed, as well as compound feed for young piglets, to the feed mill by its own vehicles. So far, two premixes have been delivered. The company estimates the monthly supply of premixes and special compound feed for newborn piglets at 160 tons.
Thus, the stock of ingredients for the production of compound feeds has already been formed: for grain (barley, corn, wheat, triticale, sorghum grown by the holding’s plant farms) – for 4 months, flour-protein (bran, soybean meal, sunflower meal, sunflower meal) – for 1 month, for premixes – for 1.5 months. KSG Agro intends to increase the stock of all types of ingredients in the near future, which allows for three months of uninterrupted production of feed.
According to Sergiy Kasianov, now the feed mill is working at full capacity. If before it worked in one shift with a production capacity of 100 tons of feed per day, now in two shifts with a production capacity of over 200 tons per day.
As previously reported with reference to the head of the Kryvyi Rih Military Administration Oleksandr Vilkul, the Ukrainian defense forces pushed the Russian occupiers 60 km from Kryvyi Rih, as a result of which the line of contact shifted from the border with Dnipropetrovsk to Kherson region (https://www.pravda.com.ua /rus/news/2022/03/29/7335383/).
