Animal feed production in KUSIC PROMET ltd. has its origins in the times when family owned agricultural farms in Croatia raised live stock for export, mainly to Italy. Required premixes, whole and additional feed for animals were obtained from the nearby animal feed factory. Those products served as an addition to basic meals, silage and hay in cattle production, and grains and proteinaceous feeds produced at family owned farms as food for other farm animals.
At first, mixing plant equipment at our family owned farm enabled us to produce total of 4.000 tons yearly of animal feed, whole and additional. This capacity of production was enough for our own needs and to meet the demand for products for cattle, pigs and poultry.
Reducing of our needs for animal food for cattle, due to well known restrictions on exporting of farm cattle to western markets, led to reorganisation of production that required thorough technical reconstruction of mixture plant. Foundations of industrial manufacturing of animal feed was made at that point.
New equipment was installed – mixer, hammers, milled and raw material cells, and storage space was renewed and enlarged. Professional core of the company was formed – employees were trained for this specific job, and this made the basis for animal feed production in amount of 8.000 tons per year.
In 1994. this family owned farm mixture plant became general type animal feed factory.
Due to raised demands and reconstruction done, production of premixes was started for own use and for specialised cattle and poultry farmers.
New line of products under brand „KUSKOVIT“ was introduced to market, aimed to meet the needs of certain animal breeds and categories. KUSKOVIT products target small manufacturers in growing number of family owned farms that use their own basic fodder: corn - primarily maize, barley, oats and wheat. Proteinaceous feed material - soy, sunflower, canola, peas, broad beans. Voluminous forage - alfalfa and corn stalks at different stages of vegetation. Such feed material have to be supplemented with vitamins, micro and macro minerals, amino acids and various additives such as probiotics, prebiotics, enzymes, flavorings and colors. KUSKOVIT products are made for this purpose and are used in an amount of 2% to 10%. At the same time, we started the production of dietetic preparations to eliminate the lack of certain nutrients in intensive livestock farming. The current production capabilities of Premixes, Kuskovit and dietetic preparations are 2.000 tons per year and for complete feed mixtures 20.000 tons per year.
