The stable buildings at all sites are modernised on a regular basis. The construction of the buildings and the technical equipment limit emissions to a minimum. State-of-the-art exhaust air treatment systems in every large stable ensure a significant reduction in emissions into clean air. Dust and ammonia are filtered by up to 80%, reducing pig odour by 90%.

To increase sustainability in our operations, ten biogas plants with a total capacity of 6.8 megawatts are being operated at the large sites. Thus, the cycle for the required energy as well as for the supply and disposal are environmentally friendly and well organised. In Binde and Gladau we grow about 20% of our demand for feed on our own. Due to the large croplands around our farms, we have the opportunity to buy the remaining food in our region and avoid long transport routes. Manure and digestates from the biogas plants are being used by the neighbouring farmers as fertiliser on the fields.
