“I see our enterprise alive and prosperous! We are ready to do everything so that people have confidence in the future.”
Gavriil Stepanovich Frantenko
Historical and socio-economic prerequisites for the establishment of Agricultural Joint Stock Company “Belorechenskoye” are conditioned by the nature of development of production forces of the Irkutsk region in the post-WWII period. The peculiarity of the region's agriculture in the 1950-1960s was the remoteness of agricultural food production centres from the places of consumption. In order to provide the residents of the towns of Usolye-Sibirskoye and Angarsk with foodstuff, in 1965 designing of an agro-industrial complex near the city of Usolye-Sibirskoye was commissioned. Its main specialisation was in the production of chicken eggs, pork and vegetables.

Stage 1

“Establishment and Development of the Enterprise”

(1967 - 1990)


The pace of construction of the enterprise was high, as evidenced by historical data:

March 1965: The decision of the Plenum of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the USSR laid the beginning of the design of an agro-industrial complex near the town of Usolye-Sibirskoye.

1967: “Sosnovskoye Special” farm was separated from the state-run farm “Maltinsky”, which was further transformed into “Sosnovskaya Poultry Farm” (the village of Sosnovka, Usolsky District), with a stock of 64 thousand laying hens, annual production of 4.91 million eggs and 139 employees.

On 15 March 1972 Gavriil Stepanovich Frantenko was appointed the head. The poultry farm produced not only commodity products, eggs and meat, but also raised chickens.

26 February 1971: The Decree of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the USSR of the Council of Ministers of the USSR № 165 “On the construction of a commercial egg-plant for 920 thousand laying hens” (design capacity) in the Usolsky District of Irkutsk region” was signed.

March 1972: Launch of construction of a new poultry farm. One more enterprise, commercial egg-plant, began to be built fifteen kilometres away from the town of Usolye-Sibirskoye. Planned volumes of the eggplant were designed for 850 thousand laying hens with annual production of 192-220 million chicken eggs. “Usolskaya” farm became the first agricultural poultry farm in Eastern Siberia working on an industrial basis. Workers from neighbouring villages, towns and cities flocked here.

1973: On the basis of the poultry farm under construction, a motor transport shop was established, consisting of 2 units of machinery. In 1988 there was a merger of the two motor pools, which allowed to improve the organisation of cargo transportation.

18 December 1974: Poultry was brought to building No. 27 of the new "Usolskaya" Poultry Farm. From that moment “Belorechenskoe” enterprise begins its glorious history.

1974: The following departments were created at the enterprise: veterinary and zootechnical services, feed shop, construction shop, energy service, engineering service, economic department, accounting department, personnel department, legal service, sales department, canteen, dispatching service, woodworking shop, safety and security service, poultry shops No. 1 and No. 2.

30 December 1974: The act of the state commission on commissioning the start-up complex with the capacity of 200 thousand laying hens was signed.  

11 February 1975: “Usolskaya” (producing eggs and chicken meat) and “Sosnovskaya” (incubating chickens and raising young stock) poultry farms were united into “Usolye-Sibirskoye” Poultry Farm with a single technological process.

March 1975: The first products for the inhabitants of Usolye-Sibirskoye and Angarsk were supplied. State reserves provided the poultry farm with mixed fodder.

In 1975 the shop management structure in poultry farming was introduced.

30 December 1975:  The act of the state commission on commissioning the start-up complex with the capacity of 350 thousand laying hens was signed.  

1975: Poultry breeding shop No. 3, slaughtering and processing shop were established.

30 December 1976: The act of the state commission on commissioning the start-up complex with the capacity of 100 thousand laying hens was signed.


28 July 1977: The act of the state commission on commissioning the start-up complex with the capacity of 111 thousand laying hens was signed.  

November 1978: Valery Ustinov became the head of the enterprise.

A new stage of “Belorechenskoye” development began in July 1980. Gavriil Frantenko was appointed director of Usolye-Sibirskoye Poultry Farm.  His many years of selfless and effective labour were repeatedly marked by state awards. Among them are the Order for “Services to the Fatherland” of III and IV degrees, the title of “Honoured Worker of Agriculture”.

01 July 1982: “Sosnovskaya” poultry farm was separated into an independent enterprise.

June 1983: A suspended rundown line of product shipment was installed at “Usolye-Sibirskoye” Poultry Farm. Poultry breeders faced the task of reducing the cost of chicken eggs by replacing seashell, which was brought from the Far East, with limestone. With the help of adding limestone to the mixture of laying hens the feed digestibility improved, the eggshell strength increased, and the main thing was to reduce the cost of the final product.

1983: At the year-end "Usolye-Sibirskoye" Poultry Farm was declared the best enterprise among similar farms of Irkutsk regional trust “Ptitseprom” (Poultry Industry).

On 26 April 1984 the production association on poultry farming with unified management was organised on the basis of three poultry farms (“Sosnovskaya”, “Usolye-Sibirskoye”, “Belorechenskoye”). From that year they were run by one team of managers.

1984: Reconstruction was carried out in the buildings and in the egg storehouse.

1985: A subsidiary farm (pigs, cattle) at “Sosnovskaya” Poultry Farm became a part of the association.

1985: Installation of L-134 poultry breeding equipment.

1986: Commissioning of a new incubator in the “Sosnovskoye” department.

1986: The “Poultry House-Shop” scheme of product sales was introduced.

1987: Introduction of electric steam generation for poultry slaughtering.

1988: Omsk-82 poultry cross was replaced by more productive P-46.

21 December 1989: A motor transport shop was put into operation.


Stage 2

“Adaptation of the Enterprise to Market Conditions”

(1990 - 1999)


1991: Analysis of fodder with the help of infrared analyser was introduced.

March 1991: A new feed shop was put into operation at “Sosnovskaya” Poultry Farm.

September 1991: Mechanised unloading of rail cars was organised.

02 February 1993: “Usolye-Sibirskoye” Industrial Poultry Farming Association (PBA) was transformed into Agricultural Open Joint Stock Company (AOJSC) “Belorechenskoe”.

1993: Quality Department was established.

1994: A comprehensive programme "Poultry Farm with Closed Non-Waste and Environmentally Friendly Production Cycle" was introduced. Within the framework of this programme the transition to dry litter removal was made, which completely solves the problems of ecology and environmental protection.

December 1994: An experimental site for BioHumus production was put into operation, where dry manure is processed into BioHumus with the help of Californian worms according to the vermiculture system. BioHumus is an organic fertiliser that effectively increases soil fertility and gives a yield increase of up to 40%.

1994 – 1995: Repair and Technical Enterprise (RTP) and “Sosnovsky Experimental Plant” were joined to the structure of Agricultural Joint Stock Company “Belorechenskoe”. Then Technical Engineering Shop (TES) was created. Seventy percent of cage equipment for poultry farming is produced by TES. It is a creative shop. The peculiarity of this division is that they are the developers of new innovative ideas, which help to rationally run the farm:

- a cage for keeping quails was produced and put into production;

- production of spare parts for "Evrovent" cage equipment was mastered;

- restoration and production of spare parts for agricultural machinery;

- a seeding machine "Klyon" was developed and successfully tested on the fields of Agricultural Open Joint Stock Company (AOJSC) “Belorechenskoe”.


The egg powder drying section in the egg sorting and processing shop was put into operation.

At the “Sosnovskaya: Poultry Farm, the hen houses were switched to electric heating.

At the “Usolskaya” Poultry Farm, the buildings were equipped with the “Dawn-Dusk” lighting system.

Organisation of wholesale and retail trade of company’s own products is underway.

Enterprises "Promtekhservis" and "Zavod Sosnovsky" joined the company.


The year 1996 started with the motto: “Strengthening and improvement of the existing productions and opening of new ones. This is the guarantee of economic stability and independence of the enterprise!”  

  • At the “Usolskaya” Poultry Farm, the scraper manure removal line was replaced with a more advanced belt line.
  • Workers mastered the technology of preparation of feed mixture. 
  • Fodder production shop was established, where a crushing section was put into operation. This allowed the enterprise to refuse the services of a third-party feed mill.
  • A yoghurt production shop was opened. Raw materials from "Rossiya" state-run farm (located at Cheremkhovsky district of Irkutsk region) were used for its production, while fruit and berry natural fillers were supplied from Israel. The new sour-milk product with a short shelf life was sold in nearby towns.
  • On the basis of the experimental site, the Experimental Experimental Shop was established. This shop is the originator of all new ideas and the forge of new technologies. Here production wastes are transformed into independent goods (biohumus).
  • In the autumn of 1996 we organised the work of OPCs in Irkutsk, Bratsk, Angarsk.
  • Reconstruction was carried out in shop No. 1. In 1996 all 14 poultry houses were transferred to belt poultry manure removal. Five poultry houses were reconstructed, Big Dutchman equipment was installed, which resulted in improved microclimate, increased productivity of poultry, and most importantly improved working conditions of poultry farmers.



  • The ‘P-46’ poultry cross was replaced by the most productive Dutch poultry cross ‘Hysex White’.
  • The first reconstruction of the building No. 29 was carried out and imported equipment was installed in shop No. 2.
  • The staff of the enterprise, headed by General Director Gavriil S. Frantenko, paid most careful attention to the genetic potential of the poultry. Till 1997 the farm has been working with ‘P-46’ poultry cross supplied from the "Ptitsevod" (“Poultry Breeder”) plant (the town of Bugulma, Republic of Tatarstan). But due to the 1990s crisis, scientific works on improvement of the breed of poultry had been practically stopped at the plant. Poultry breeders of our enterprise faced a serious task of choosing another breed of poultry. They decided on working with the world-famous Dutch company "Euribrid", which had been successfully engaged in breeding business for many years. The first batch of day-old chicks was brought by aeroplane directly from Holland.
  • Introduction of weight dosing of feed.
  • Introduction of protein-vitamin concentrate in poultry feeding.
  • Development of pasteurised egg production technology.

April 1997: Installation of the cage equipment by the German company “Big Dutchman” and development of cage manufacturing process by Technical Engineering Shop (TES) specialists.

June 1997: Installation of the egg sorting machine of the Dutch company ‘STAALKAT’, which had the following advantages:

  • qualitative sorting of eggs by categories;
  • increase of labour productivity, reduction of egg breakage;
  • exclusion of blood inclusions and internal notching;
  • labelling of eggs with ecologically pure food dye.

During the whole 1997 year the transition to dry belt chicken manure removal was carried out, which considerably reduced material costs for transporting manure, repairing of equipment and improved the quality of hen's eggs. With the assistance of Big Dutchman company, obsolete equipment was reconstructed in eight poultry houses. Production of cage battery KON for laying hens, production of spare parts for cage batteries KMB, KBU, KBN, KBR, component parts for battery Evrovent-500 of Big Dutchman company were mastered.

June 1997: Mastering of a Dutch technology of potato growing, the yield was 420 centners per hectare. The chief agronomist Andrey Vladimirovich Shupletsov headed the agricultural works.



In October 1998, the transition to a new highly productive cross of poultry - "Hyssex White", bred in Holland, was fully completed. The introduction of this cross allowed the company to increase the productivity of hens by 40 eggs and increase production by more than 47 million eggs per year.

In 1998 the company completely abandoned culling and slaughtering of poultry. This has resulted in more than 27 million additional eggs, with a stock wastage of just over 5 per cent.

In 1998, the International Club of Trade Leaders awarded the enterprise with the European prize "For Quality". For the first time in Russia this prize was awarded to a poultry farming enterprise and an agricultural commodity producer.

In 1998, the company produced 370 million chicken eggs. The products sold totalled 284 million rubles.

1998: The agricultural department was established. The farm was constantly experimenting, growing new varieties of agricultural crops, learning to work with the best samples and the best equipment. They use the experience of world agricultural producers.

In 1998, the company launched new shops for storage and processing of vegetables, and a modern vegetable storehouse. The plan was to launch one vegetable storage facility per year during the following 5 years.

  • 02 December 2022: The technical acceptance inspection of building No. 27 at the Usolye industrial site of the poultry farm took place. There’s a reason that building No. 27 became the first building from which the historical stage of reconstruction at Usolye industrial site began, as on 18 December 1974 the first poultry was brought into this very building. And from that year "Belorechenskoe" began its glorious history. On 07 December 2022, more than 57 thousand baby chickens were moved into building No. 27.

The first feature:

The building of the poultry farm is 100% equipped with Big Dutchman equipment produced by a German company.

Here the cage is enlarged and can accommodate 9 birds, and the total number of cages in the building is 6,336.

Before the reconstruction, 49,900 birds were housed in the enclosure.

The size of the building has not changed, it is typical and is 18 metres wide and 96 metres long.

The second feature:

The ventilation was updated, adding side ventilation to the roof ventilation. The technology of the renewed ventilation is as follows: all the exhaust air is discharged through the roof ventilators, and during the warm season, also through the end side wide-bladed fans. Thanks to this, especially in summer, air stagnation in the "dead" areas of the building is avoided.

All processes of microclimate are controlled by a computer, which stores all information about incoming birds (number, weight, etc.), as well as microclimate parameters (air humidity, temperature, fresh air cubature, illumination). In total there are 7 microclimate control sensors in the building. The lighting system is LED by Ivelsi with Dawn-Sunset function.

The third feature:

The construction team built new floors with a system of channels and slopes for water drainage into two autonomous cesspools, made side windows for fresh air inflow, and replaced slating on the roof with insulation of one layer of mineral wool board.

All construction work was carried out under the close supervision of the Big Dutchman tecjnical supervisor. The quality of materials is at a very high level.

The renovated building is operated by 2 people: a mechanic-operator and a poultry housekeeper.

Reconstruction will allow to increase labour productivity and salary of the staff.

We wish to the workers of the building good luck and high production results. Bon voyage!
