From scratch to success

The beginnings of the turkey breeding operation Kartzfehn meanwhile dates back more than 50 years back. Hardly imaginable that this exemplary success story is owed solely to the courage and tenacity of a few "bright minds". Although the framework conditions were anything but promising due to the lack of structures and demand, the pioneers built up a turkey breeding operation from scratch in Kartzfehn, where the first 70 poults hatched from 100 eggs in May 1957.

But that was just the beginning. Thanks to consistent research in the fields of breeding, rearing, feeding, incubation and hygiene as well as the exemplary co-operation with German turkey growers and marketing enterprises, the company developed within a few years to being the market leader and driving force of the national turkey industry.
