Inauguration of new production site
Last weekend, our partner Rinderbesamungs-Genossenschaft Memmingen eG celebrated the inauguration of its new production site in Hitzenhofen / Allgäu. The semen collection center in Memmingen will be one of the most modern semen collection centers in Europe. The administration and the semen stock are housed in the city area of Memmingen.
The new production facility offers optimal housing conditions for the bulls and is furnished according to the latest animal welfare findings. The 65 spacious bull boxes offer the bulls a straw-bedded relaxation area and a visually separated walking area. In addition, 17 paddocks ensure that the bulls can walk outside. A generously sized visitor center with a gallery makes it possible to present the sires to the public and to give an insight into the daily routine of semen production while still complying with all the necessary veterinary hygiene requirements. From the gallery, visitors have a complete overview of the entire stable, the semen collection hall and the storage buildings.
On Friday evening, the official inauguration ceremony took place with a symbolic handover of the key and blessing of the new buildings. As part of an open house day, leaders, employees, farmers and interested citizens celebrated the inauguration of the new barn on Sunday.
We are looking forward to presenting the new semen collection center to our foreign guests.
