Activities and Quality

Alfalfa harvesting, profopal forage dehydration, tecnipec group

Control and monitoring

Our agricultural technicians monitor the process of growth from the field to the factory, establishing the optimal times for harvesting and gathering. They advise farmers of any pesticide treatments or fertilization necessary.

Sample analysis

When we receive the alfalfa to the factory, it is weighed and we take samples for analysing. Firstly, a classification of product and quality is performed visually and then instruments such as drying ovens and NIR gauges are used to reliably obtain the moisture content and the amount of protein. These parameters will be essential before beginning the manufacturing process, as well as the classification according to quality and batches.

Labelling and traceability

Once the final product comes out of the baler, moisture is measured again to verify the drying was successful and a label identifying the company, the quality, and the batch. As this way it is possible to control at all times the traceability and to comply with food safety regulations

Profopal develops the following R&D project

TICCamara Project

Profopal, located in Fuentes de Nava (Palencia), is a company dedicated to processing, marketing and selling of fodder.

Since we began in 2003, we have produced all kinds of fodder: alfalfa, oat, ryegrass and so on. Not only in bales, but also in pellet format.

Profopal has two modern dehydrated fodder lines with high production capacity. Adding to this, we also have a pellet granulation line with three granulators in series.

Our spacious facilities allow us to classify the product carefully, according to the level of quality, before transforming and finalizing the product.

We focus on the best quality fodder, essential feed in the ruminant’s diet, in order to obtain vegetable protein, the key to achieving the highest productivity.
