who are we
We are Ergen Biotechnology Ltd, founded in 2008, located in Erzurum Ata Teknokent. Our team consists of academicians. We have farms belonging to our company in Erzurum and Istanbul.
We have a sheep breed named Anarom ™, which we developed between 2003-2013, with high reproductive efficiency and reproductive abilities out of season.
We have a software team in Istanbul, ITU Technopolis. We develop sheep treatment units and mobile herd tracking software .
We are establishing farms that we call the Turnkey Lamb Factory for investors. They are farming Anaro m ™ sheep. We have enterprises that are owned and managed by our investors operating in Sakarya, Karaman, Adana and Kırşehir.
In the process of establishing a new Lamb Factory ™ meat sheep business, we provide the construction of shelters, supply of sheep, technology equipment, and training services. With the transition to operation, we provide end-to-end services including support for roughage, concentrate supply , nutrition , breeding program, and health protection.
We buy female and male lambs produced by Lamb Factory ™ farms. We sell these lambs online with our brand Kuzu Burger ™ on the website kuzu.co. Our customers can recognize the breeder of the lamb they eat, and can track many information about the lamb, including the date of birth, up to the analysis of the grass the lamb ate, through the barcode on the package.
When you scan the barcode on the packages from your smartphones, you can learn the date of birth of the lamb, the farm it was born in, the content and analysis of the herbs and feeds it eats. Because all Lamb Factory businesses use the same technology infrastructure.

Kuzufab Meat Sheep Feasibility
An anarom sheep consumes 250 kg of clover per year. The lamb consumes 25 kg per year, the ram per sheep 25 kg per year. A total of 390 TL roughage consumption with an account of 1300 TL, including transportation, with a total of 300 kg.
The special period Lamb Factory concentrate feed consumption is as follows. Sheep in a year;
When breastfeeding 60 kg
35 kg before pregnancy
35 kg eats before my layer
Assuming that the clovers we planted and measured as roughage are given, an Anarom sheep consumes a total of 120 kg of Lamb Factory concentrate per year.
Oath tone average 2000 TL
Total about 240 TL
At these prices, a sheep eats about 630 TL a year. Lamb fattening consumes 100 kg of fattening feed between 70-100 days, which is 200 TL. 500 TL for two and a half lambs
An Anarom sheep, which produces an average of two and a half lambs a year, eats a total of 1130 TL with its lambs.
We produce coarse feed under a contract as a Lamb Factory. We use the measured clover in our ration.
If your annual caregiver expense is 50 thousand TL for 200 sheep, then 250 TL is maintenance expense per sheep.
Facility maintenance and other expenses are 30 thousand TL per year and 150 TL per sheep.
Get 200 TL for sponge, ultrasound and consultancy costs per sheep.
In total, the cost per sheep is 1730 TL.
In 2020, we bought lambs for slaughter for 25 TL per kilo.
In the Lamb Factory system, lambs from 5 months old fattening gain 45 kg and above, let's say 45 kg.
Assuming 15% lamb killing and 10% replacement herd separation, you get 2.5 lambs per year from one sheep.
In case of sale of female and male lambs for slaughter, the annual turnover you get from a brood sheep is 2812.5 TL.
If you sell female lambs for breeding (1.25 pieces of female lambs from 1710 TL per unit price), male lambs (1.25 pieces of male lambs from 1125 TL unit price), the turnover you get from a brood sheep is 3543.75 TL.
Profitability per sheep is 1082 TL for female and male slaughter sales model and 1813 TL for breeding and slaughter sales model.
When you sell only for meat with 200 brood accounts, you get 216,600 thousand TL profit annually for 200 sheep, and 362,750 TL profit with the breeding and slaughter sales model.
It should not be forgotten that the same 2 caregivers take care of the 200 heads and the herds of 800 heads. Therefore, by increasing the number of sheep, you can decrease the caregiver cost per unit.
On the other hand, if you have animal feed production, for example, if you produce animal feed plants per 100 decares, you can continue to do so. You can sell your products in the free market and make a profit. To give an example, our Sakarya enterprise sold its own clover to the free market at a price higher than the one it bought from us. This is a subsidiary field of activity. We normally ask them to deal only with the Lamb Factory operation, not other agricultural and livestock areas, in order to avoid a shift in focus in our Lamb Factory operations.
The main added value is obtaining 3 lambs from one sheep a year.
High-yield sheep breeding is not an easy task.
Can I produce my own feed instead of buying my Lamb Factory forage and concentrate?
Roughage means everything. It is the main food of sheep and lambs throughout the year. We give the concentrate feed partially.
It should not be forgotten that not all roughages are roughages.
Features such as seed quality, field, soil fertility, water quality, temperature and humidity values, fertilizer quality, pesticide selection and size are critical for the quality of forage. It is important to reap it in the appropriate vegetative period, if you do not reap it on time, the cellulose rate increases and its quality decreases. Drying method after mowing is important. After drying, the bale, packaging, stock and shipping processes are important.
These criteria determine the nutritional value of roughage, digestibility and the desire of animals to consume.
We are involved in all of these processes.
We have both physical and chemical properties of coarse feed analyzed.
As a result of the physical and chemical examination of the coarse feed, the period of remaining in stock is also determined.
We do not send it to any business without analyzing nutritional values, digestibility, usefulness, mold and alphatoxin in roughage.
In addition, the professional experience of roughage producers is also subject to the selection process for us. We have around 150 fields in all areas close to each other that our pre-supplier team inspects according to our selection criteria.
If there is a problem with one of them, the others are waiting in reserve. In this respect, we manage our risk.
The other issue is the issue of ration determination. We jointly determine the roughage to be given to sheep, concentrate feed and the portions to be given in all of our enterprises. In order to determine the portions, we need to know the animal breed, roughage analysis and energy values, concentrate feed energy values, the physiological status of the animal and the temperature values of the farm.
If one of them is not under our control, we will not be able to provide you with ration service, and we will not be able to analyze and direct you any other problems. We cannot determine the ration in a business where an unknown roughage is used.
Therefore, we need to keep the inputs and outputs in all our farms under control so that we can determine the optimum nutrition amounts.
Reproductive efficiency, heat yield, mating yield, embryonic deaths, lamb growth, feed utilization, diseases, in short, everything depends on giving the right roughage and concentrate feed.
In addition, we should manage the factors that put production efficiency at risk in all businesses, so that when you have a problem, we can deepen the research on your behalf and get to the root of the problem in which we know all the parameters. We cannot get out of the business by saying that the problem is in your roughage, because we have a business model that we will win as you earn.
We should make the production model the same in all businesses so that we can take these animals from you and deliver them to their customers through a sales channel such as kuzuburger.com. The taste of the lamb growing in you and the size of the lamb growing in Kırşehir, the texture and taste of the meat should be the same.
