Modern approaches toward cattle farming in combination with the high professionalism of the Company’s specialists give stunning results. In 2016, the productivity per cow amounted 8210 kg in comparison with 7300 kg in 2014. This number is 60% above the national average.

An example of implementation of modern approaches toward cattle farming, could be rearing of calves in outdoor hutches. Rearing of calves in an outdoor environment strengthens their body‘s defences and helps them to acquire resistance to disease.

In 2015, 100% heifers calved for the first time at 24 months of age which is optimum for the cows productivity. The heard basis is Holstein Friesians of American selection as the world's highest-production dairy animals.

Also “UPI-AGRO” focuses on genetics. The Company cooperates with World Wide Sires - the world's leading cattle genetics marketing organization, which provides the best genetic material. Its quality is confirmed by the independent world-wide farmers organization Interbull. Twice a year Interbull publishes world index of the best bulls.  “UPI-AGRO” farms use genetic material of the superior bulls from the TOP-100.

Особлива увага приділяється також питанням біобезпеки. Доступ до комплексу суворо обмежений; персонал «маточника» та цеху відгодівлі не контактують між собою; корма для них виготовляються також у двох різних комбікормових цехах. До речі, всі зернові для комбікормів виробляються безпосередньо компанією та зберігаються на окремому елеваторі, що повністю виключає використання зіпсованого або зараженого зерна.
