The agro-industrial complex of Intercenter-Lux, one of the largest in Pridnestrovie, represents one of the branches of the multidisciplinary activity of the company, functions as a vertically integrated holding for the development of animal breeding, the cultivation of crops, their processing, the production of food products and their sale.
The beginning was laid in 2001 by the agreement on joint activities with the Lenin Collective Farm of the Grigoriopol district. The first own agricultural complex was organized on May 5, 2004 in the village of Shipka, Grigoriopol district. Four years later, the second one was founded in the village of Frunze, Slobozia district. Then, in 2008, from scratch, a breeding pig complex with a capacity of up to 10,000 heads a year was created. In 2018 - a slaughterhouse with processing of pig meat was put into operation.
The main idea of the agricultural production of the company is cost optimization, high yields per hectare. And also - the invariable compliance with the requirements for the safety of raw materials for the feed and food production. Therefore, from the first days, a course was taken to apply modern technologies and use intensive methods of growing agricultural crops: cereals, legumes, oilseeds and essential oils on an area of 7.5 thousand hectares.
The agrocomplex of the company has introduced modern regularly updated agricultural machinery, equipment for efficient pig production.
Stable obtaining high yields in the fields of the firm, constant growth of weight gains in the animal husbandry of the firm is the result of well-coordinated work of teams of professionals whose works are marked by high government awards.
Constant and steady improvement of all technological processes both in plant growing and in pig breeding, conducted by the leading specialists of the agro-industrial complex of the firm, made it possible to lead the firm to the leading positions in the Republic.
About the creation and development of the pig-breeding complex of the branch "Agroprom-Lux 1" the Frunze village of Slobodzea district “ Intercentre-lux" Ltd. from 2008 to 2018
With the onset of the global financial crisis, the market system collapsed even further, the sale of agricultural products practically declined, prices fell, which led to the accumulation of food and feed products. In these conditions, the company decided to develop livestock.
In order to create a breeding farm and develop pig breeding in Pridnestrovie, the company imported 150 heads of purebred sows and boars of Duroc, Hampshire, Yorkshire, Pietren, Landras, and others lines.
Already in the middle of 2009 the enterprise entered production in a closed cycle.
Produced breeds of pigs on the breeding pig complex of the branch "Agroprom-Lux I" in Frunze village. The "Intercentre-Lux" Ltd.- meat and bacon direction, allow to receive young growth with a minimum feed conversion and early maturity - 110-115 kg with a content of up to 180 - 190 days.
Currently, the breeding pig complex contains more than 6 thousand pigs, including 500 sows. The monthly offspring is about 900 piglets, including 10.8 pigs per 1 sow per 1 sprout.

Update of genetics of the main broodstock was started in 2014. Observations showed a higher fecundity and good milkness of the acquired guinea pigs of Dutch HYPOR genetics. To obtain the desired 12 pigs at weaning from 1 farrowing the company constantly improves the genetic value of the breeding stock by purchasing on a regular basis up to 100 heads of pigs every half year from abroad.
Following the inflexible principle of planning the long-term development of industrial production of pork, the complex specialists from the very beginning developed and adopted a production schedule for the management, which provides for the placement and movement of groups of pig heads in the production premises, indicating the number of days of maintenance, transfer from group to group, and other important information for work.
To date, the shops for the maintenance of idle and pregnant sows, boars, maternity ward, growing and fattening shops, artificial insemination and laboratory, the preparation plant for mixed fodder have been put into operation and are actively functioning.
The total area of the reconstructed and newly constructed premises is more than 9.5 thousand square meters.
Since the end of 2008, with the commissioning of a new pig breeding complex of the company in the Frunze branch, 40 additional jobs have been created.
Tribal livestock at the complex is grown by modern technologies using the experience of both foreign and domestic farms.
So, in 2011, the technology of keeping piglets (growing location) on "warm floors" was introduced.
In 2012, the boxes in the maternity ward were reconstructed with the replacement of traditional cells for keeping sows with suckling piglets on European-type cells from the Czech Republic.
In 2013, the metal gratings of the slatted floors were replaced in the second compartment of the growing department by plastic ones, the "warm floors" were arranged, which significantly improved the piglets' content on growing and led to an increase in the production indicators - the keeping of the livestock, the total weight gain (plan for weight gain - 449, 8 tons, the fact is 544.4 tons).
Since the beginning of 2014, the pig breeding complex uses modern pig feeding systems for fattening: a line for automatic feed and feeding of pigs has been installed in pig-keeping shops on deep litter (Canadian technology). This technological solution will allow to "relieve" the stress that arose in animals when the tractor arrived in the shop for distribution of feed to the feeding troughs, and, therefore, will positively affect the growth of daily average weight gain and decrease in% of pigs' retirement.
In 2015, the premises for the cellular maintenance of pigs for fattening were reconstructed and put into fattening.
In 2016 a reconstruction was carried out in the little pig farm with the construction of the boxes, another room was reconstructed for the maintenance of guinea pigs, an exhaust ventilation system was installed.
For the period 2017-2018. it is planned to reconstruct 2 shops containing pigs of the fattening group on the straw mat under the cellular content.
These measures allowed to reduce technological losses at each stage, to improve the content of pigs, which had an impact on improving the health status, and therefore, on the economic performance of the complex.

During the organization of the breeding complex, the company's specialists tried to combine and implement in practice all the best of the advanced livestock technologies and the experience of large developed and developing pig farms from Ukraine, Russia, Moldova, as well as well-known companies and companies from the Far Abroad - from Austria, Hungary, Germany. The honorary title "The Best Livestock Complex" following the results of the Republican contest "Pridnestrovie Quality - 2009", "Pridnestrovie Quality - 2010", "Transnistrian Quality - 2011", "Transnistrian Quality - 2013" is the best confirmation of this.
