Napredak Jsc. estate in Stara Pazova, has around of 3,700 ha of field crops production and also the production of breeding gilts and pig fattenings.

On our modern farm Petrovic Salas, pig fattening is done with the annual production of 42,000 fatlings. Nucleus farm produces breeding gilts of F1 generation in accordance with the internationally renowned DanBred technology. Careful crossbreeding produces high-quality piglets resistant to disease, with high fertility and optimal lean to fat ratio. The estate also includes a state-of-the-art Centre for Artificial Insemination.

On the Napredak estate in Stara Pazova, the pig farm is organized in accordance with the latest global standards. The implementation of the GLOBAL GAP/LIVESTOCK BASE standard is currently underway, thus confirming the quality of pork meat produced on this farm. According to the results achieved at the very beginning, our farm on Napredak estate can compete with the top 10 farms in Denmark, the leading country in the field of pig breeding.

On this farm, food consumption is considerably lower than in traditional production, while the meatiness of pigs is increased, thus resulting in high quality end products which are easily placed on the market and without any concern as to their price. This is a great example showing that animal husbandry in Serbia can satisfy all parties involved: farmers are happy with the cost-effectiveness of their production, and end-users are satisfied with the quality and reasonable prices of the products they buy!

The basis for successful and profitable pig production on the farm within Napredak a.d. in Stara Pazova consists of Nucleus with 400 GGP-GP sows of top genetic potential from a well-known Danish company DanBred International, together with 75 top level boars from the Centre for Artificial Insemination. The capacity of the farm Nucleus is 400 GGP-GP sows. Nucleus farm, AI Centre and Napredak Farm were built as prototypes that show how all farms will be built in the future. The space is designed for maximum results in production with good management and top genetics. Delta Agrar follows environmental protection standards at the highest level, especially animal welfare regulations. All this was carried out in compliance with EU legislation for this field. To minimize the use of medication and maintain a high level of health of all animals on the farm, we implement strong hygiene and biosecurity measures that can be divided into external and internal ones, and more specifically they include:

Biosecurity - external

  • Detachment of the farm from the surrounding area
  • The protection of farm from rodents
  • A protective strip of gravel around the building
  • Rat traps
  • Bars on windows

Rules for entering facilities

  • Change of clothes
  • Showers
  • Clothing and footwear for special use on farm only
  • Contact with animals outside the farm is not permitted to farm personnel

Biosecurity - internal

  • Production based on “All-In-All-Out” system
  • Washing of sections
  • Disinfection of sections
  • Implementation of DDD measures
  • Washing footwear between sections
  • Disinfection barriers between sections

Tanks for liquid manure at the pig farm which prevent any possibility of leakage of waste water out of the system, thereby achieving satisfactory levels of protection of local watercourses from pollution, not only in accordance to national, but also EU regulations in this area. Liquid manure from the farm is collected in tanks through a system of replacement and pre-tank channels. During the storing period, the so-called “care” of liquid manure is carried out, and it involves aeration - stirring, thus speeding up the conversion of organic matter from liquid manure into inorganic.

This way, an organic fertilizer is obtained from liquid manure, which otherwise generally represents a major problem in livestock production. Such fertilizers can further be applied in crop production, thus reducing the utilization of inorganic fertilizers. With appropriate spreaders, these organic fertilizers can be distributed on to fields before seeding or at certain stages of crop growth.

Part of the funds for the construction and procurement of equipment for this system was provided by the World Bank, through DREPR Project of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management.


On the commercial pig farm Napredak in Stara Pazova there is a facility for the utilization of biomass, i.e. residues from agricultural production which are used as a fuel. Regardless of the fact that this method of energy recovery is based on biomass burning, it is considered that the amount of released CO2 is lower than the amount of that gas absorbed by the plants in the vegetation period. This is the main reason why this process is considered environmentally acceptable and advisable, as well as financially very cost-effective in terms of intensive crop production.
