During the planning and construction of the stable, the conditions in which the animals will live were constantly taken into account. By visiting a large number of facilities and countless hours spent in conversations with experienced farmers and breeders, we gradually put together a concept of the stable facility, always guided by animal welfare.
Following the advises of experts and experienced breeders, the facility and installed equipment are far ahead of state regulations and standards, we are even ahead of European standards in some segments.
Stable keeping of sheep is widespread throughout Europe and all standards lead to the abolition of nomadic keeping of sheep, as sheep are too exposed to external risks that can lead to diseases and the rapid spread of disease within the herd.
The facility allows a constant flow of fresh air which reduces the temperature during the summer days, prevents the accumulation of insects, minimizes the level of ammoniac and thus creates a pleasant climate for animals.
The openings were built along the entire building, and it was necessary to install a net against birds, thus preventing the entry and settlement of birds that could be carriers of infection and other impurities.
Large ventilation openings brought another challenge - how to prevent rain from entering the premisses? Following the example of farms from Slovenia, roller blinds have been installed, which repel moisture but allow air flow, and raising and lowering the curtains is regulated by sensors.
The base in the stable building is made of industrial smooth concrete, the so-called ferro-concrete. This substrate has only recently started to be used on modern farms, but it has proven to be very suitable because it enables faster and easier hygienic maintenance and disinfection of the substrate. Practice across Europe shows that a lattice floor is not adequate for animals, is harmful to hooves and can lead to development of diseases that are highly contagious.
Animals are fed on the feeding hall, sheep are prevented from soiling their food in any way, which is ideal for serving meals in accordance with the schedule and recipes for individual animals. The water supply of the facility is done from its own well, water samples are regularly taken for microbiological and chemical analysis.
Water supply spots are supported through a circulating system with a built-in heater, in this way the animals always have fresh water of the appropriate temperature at their disposal. The equipment inside the farm, the system of partitions between the boxes, the feeding grid and the boxes for the lambs are tailor made according to our requirements, from materials acceptable for agricultural production, providing enough space for each individual animal. It is extremely important that the animals have enough space to move and rest, depending on their needs.
