Main Areas of Activity
Agro-Projects - Agrotop designed and constructed thousands of projects worldwide, as it is highly skilled regarding services for various project sizes. Agrotop’s portfolio includes small portable farms, mid-sized and large farms, supporting plants such as feed mills, hatcheries and slaughterhouses, and immense full vertical integration solutions. An environmentally controlled poultry shed requires extensive tests. Agrotop maintains wide-ranging knowledge in perfuming such tests, thereby ensuring that the shed meets the defined specifications. Thus, enabling its clients to build a databank to program the controller and to use as a reference point, in order to assess the condition of the shed and equipment in the future.
Industrial - The company’s industrial building division constructed hundreds of projects for industry, storage, commerce, and display, in addition to distribution and logistics centers, cold storage structures, central garages, office buildings and various other projects.
Egg Production - Agrotop maintains extensive expertise regarding all types of egg production methods, including semi- and fully automated systems that raise growth. The company’s solutions are used for large integration projects, as well as small mobile houses, as the company assists its clients regarding pre-planning, in order to optimize the outcomes of the project. This is done while considering return on investment (ROI), risk, market niche and seasonality, modularity, biosecurity, bird welfare and market acceptance and logistics and traceability.
Pullets, Breeding and Layer Parent Stock - Projects that are extremely large justify having their own breeding and parent stock flocks. Agrotop provides fully equipped hatchery and breeding sheds and helps growers source day-old chicks.
Grain Elevator and Feed Mill - Approximate 80 percent of egg cost results from the feed of the birds. Agrotop assists clients who wish to produce their own feed.
Laying Sheds - A proportionate farm should uphold a balance of three-layer sheds for each pullet shed, guaranteeing a sensible and steady production of eggs in both size and quantity, irrespective of the farm being free range, aviary or conventional. The computer controller, which upholds optimum climate conditions, and regulates and monitors feed, water, and egg collection, is key in this matter. The eggs are automatically collected to a central collection shed where they can be sorted and packed, then sent to the distributor or the end customer.
Poultry meat production is a rising business worldwide. Modern 21st century broiler houses are designed to maintain ideal in-house conditions that allow broilers, raised for commercial meat production, to reach their genetic potential. Understanding how broiler biology integrates with engineering and technology is vital in order to obtain the perfect solution.
Agrotop maintains extensive experience pertaining to the integration of all facets needed to accomplish perfect bird conditions and economic results for its clients.
