AGD initiated its pig production in 1993 with a complete cycle breeding housing of 500 sows, located in a field of its own near Santa Eufemia town (Cordoba province). Four years later the facility was enlarged with the construction of a swine housing for 1,200 sows in an ISO-WEAN system, that is to say three roomed, thus completing a total of 3,000 gestating sows.
The productive system is intensive-confined, totally automatized and the feed is prepared in the same facility. The heard is composed of PIC Genetics breeding sows.
The effluents are biologically treated in sealed off pools and the final product of this process is used for the fertilization and irrigation of nearby farming.
In 2002 , when the very important threshold of 27,9 pigs weaned per sow per year was achieved, AGD received the first prize in Production Efficiency given by the Minnesota University which evaluates the performance of breeders of all the world through the Pig-Champ Software. The following year, and on the same category, got the first place in South America with 28 pigs weaned per sow per year.
On the same guideline, the group holds different agreements and close technological cooperation links with important Argentine research organizations such as INTA, AAPRESID, FADA, CREA and a number of National Universities.
