Our actions against Covid 19
We produce cattle of excellent quality in the Argentinian Northwest. We are dedicated to Cattle Breeding, Pasture-Rebreeding and Lotfeeding. We also keep Brangus and Bradford herds for the rearing of breeding animals for our own reproductive needs.
Our production is destined to the Argentine market, mainly for the provinces of Tucumán, Catamarca and northern Córdoba.
We care for our animals from birth until the end of their productive life, taking care of and looking after every stage in order to achieve bovines of the highest quality standards. By this method, we cover all quality aspects our consumers value, such as Food Safety, Nutrition and Sensory Properties involving the senses of sight (visual appearance, size, shape, and colour), touch (texture, consistency, and tenderness), taste (taste, flavour) and smell (smell, scent).
Our operation spans 35,000 hectares located in three provinces in north-western Argentina (Tucumán, Santiago del Estero and Catamarca), in five different establishments which work in an integrated way.
Pre-Service: Rigorous selection of females for service according to strict reproduction parameters.
Natural and artificial insemination: We impregnate 10,000 wombs per year, achieving high efficiency rates supported by data registry and continuous measurement.
Calving: We try to minimise pre-weaning mortality through rodeo controls.
Based on megathermal pastures, which we strategically supplemented, we achieve a sustained growth in rebreeding in accordance to our set goals.
With a holding capacity of 12,000 heads, we are able to complete two fattening cycles per year. We fatten our own originally-branded livestock and also cattle bought from third parties.
We follow this approach in all our facilities, because we understand that caring for both the environment and our natural resources is crucial to the sustainable generation of value, and for improving our productivity and working conditions.
GFP lead to the improvement of farming practices and help us guarantee:
In compliance with Argentine regulations on Hazardous Waste, we treat our clinical waste, which results from the veterinary care of the animals, according to the best existing practices for this kind of waste.
From the earliest stages of staff training, at our establishments we carry out all appropriate waste treatment and segregation. We then manage, through licensed companies, its final treatment and disposal.
Each and every one of our animals has the best possible genetic combination, and we provide them with what we call Animal Welfare: an integral health plan, quality forage resources (pasture, grain, industrial by-products), and professional management of the entire process.
Started in 2003, the Foundation aims at strengthening the rural communities of the Argentinian Northwest, by answering some of the innumerable social and educational needs of the region. Through our own training programmes, which are related to subjects such as Values, Health, the Environment, Human Rights, Child Labour, Entrepreneurship and Labour Market Integration, we seek to strengthen the comprehensive development of children, youngsters, adults and their communities.
Food is a basic pillar for the production of quality meats. Therefore, fattening strategically plans animal feed to achieve excellence in their meats.
2018 was a year of growth for Fattening. The synergy between the productive area and the commercial area allowed the fulfillment of the objectives set.
Nature is perfect, but we had to add something to it
