GAMUR (Livestock Farmers in Murcia Autonomic
GAMUR S. COOP. is a cooperative for selling
pigs founded in 1991. Since its inception, the
cooperative has developed and integrated more
services for guaranteeing the quality of end
products, farm production, and the control of
raw materials for fodder preparation, respecting
animal welfare criteria with environmentally-friendly
production practices, until pigs are transported
in the vehicles of the cooperative to slaughterhouses.
Once pigs are slaughtered, carcasses are distributed
to quartering facilities, meat processors, wholesalers,
A high-quality production system satisfies
the most demanding markets in terms of quantity,
quality, continuity, and homogeneity. Quality
is achieved through the continued technical
training of farmers through information sessions,
courses, etc. given by veterinary specialists
and the introduction of new tools in farms such
as information technologies applied to pig production.
The new technical services are a fundamental
support tool for members of the cooperative.
They allow them to obtain information on different
issues such as livestock management and feeding,
meat quality, and animal care.
GAMUR has modern facilities for early weaning
of sucklings, where 20,000 piglets from the
farms of members of the cooperative are developed
In addition, members benefit from beneficial
conditions for financial operations through
agreements signed with the FEOCAM (Federation
of Agricultural Cooperatives of Murcia), to
which they belong, and different financial institutions.
Their experience and the continuous modernisation
of working methods are the best guarantee for
- Live pigs for slaughter: 7 million kg/year
- Pigs for fattening: 35,000 animals/year
At this moment, the cooperative are founding
partners of the 2nd grade Cooperative AGROMUR
for the sale of meat products, hams, etc., directly
targeting consumers with their own trademark
in an attempt to increase the value of the production
of their more than 200 members.
