Due to the current growth of the Argentinian pig sector, the Company BLD is developing a project in the town of Noetinger, in the region of Cordoba. This project includes a Piglet Production Unit (PPU) with 5,000 producing sows and 22 fattening sites.
The company estimates reaching a yearly production of 150,000 heads, which represents 2.5% of the annual national production. This project includes the creation of 110 permanent direct jobs, and some 600 people will be contracted with indirect jobs for the construction, development and later operation of the project.
The system, that will start in the first trimester of 2018 and that will receive an investment of $700 million, is a part of an associative business model that joins the intensive pig production with the producers of cereals, attaining a growth that extends to other sectors in the region. The pigs will be entrusted to the producers, that will use their cereals to feed them during their growth stage and, with an investment according to their possibilities, they will reach the highest production level.
This investment appears thanks to the public and private interaction and to the exchange that the company held with the Ministry of Agro Industry of Argentina, the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock of the province of Cordoba and the Administration of Noetinger in order to analyse the receptivity and viability of the project thanks to the hot news in the sector.
