Besides growing maize for silage, intensive and extensive grazing management has also an important role in Nagyberek. We keep an area of 400 ha intensive, from where we gather grass three times a year, which means good quality fodder for the livestock raising sectors. The rest of the grassland is used for grazing beef cattle that is held in extensive circumstances.
Our beef cattle program started at the beginning of the 70's with the American breed "Hereford". We cross them now with Red Angus breed that results in end-product, which better satisfies all requirements.

Beef cattle

The Hubertus Bt. has been doing substitution crossing with Red Angus breed since 1996. The reason for choosing this breed was that they have excellent calf raising ability, (they are good milk producers), their prolificacy is very good and they are early maturing type. They own some more characteristics, which are advantageous comparing to the breed we had before.  Their food utilization is good, they can be kept in herd and they keep their form well. From this Red Angus crossbreed, weanling calves with more than 200 kg weight on average, early breeding and more 85 % pregnancy rate (per herd) can be expected.

Beef bulls

The fattening takes place in our beef cattle farm in Sáripuszta, which was renovated in 2004-2005. New EU conform technology is introduced in the large stables (1200 places are available).  

We keep on average 3000 cattle.

Horse breeding

Our stud is based in Pusztaberény, which was one of the most famous Hungarian horse studs from the 19th century until the second world war. Lipizzaners, Trotters and Thoroughbreds used to be bred in the tiny village. After the world war Pusztaberény often changed owners. The Furioso stud came here from Germany in 1982.

Today the stud operates as a part of the Hubertus Agro-Industrial Company and we breed Kisbéri Félvér and Hungarian Sporthorses.
