Catchment area

The pigs delivered to us for slaughter in Ulm are sourced almost exclusively from a catchment area of about 80 km around Ulm. For heavy livestock, our catchment area extends to the whole of southern Germany, even into the cattle-growing regions of Bavaria. Suppliers include producer associations, animal husbandry cooperatives, livestock centres, private livestock traders and large farmers.

In order to secure the supply of raw materials, quality control and the continuous utilisation of our capacities, we strive to organise the procurement of our animals for slaughter through so-called supply and purchase contracts.
