Many family farmers have been suppliers to us for multiple generations.
Ensuring the livelihoods of farmers is important to us as we rely upon hundreds of family farmers. In fact, many family farmers have been suppliers to us for multiple generations.
Through our long-term relationships, hog producers are ensured a market for their animals. In addition to these agreements, our Jennie-O Turkey Store subsidiary offers long-term contract grower agreements. Under this arrangement, Jennie-O Turkey Store owns and provides the turkeys, feed and veterinary care, and the farmers get paid for raising the turkeys and for the use of their facilities.
In addition, we are proud to have representatives serving as members, officers and directors of the boards of many industry organizations that support agriculture and farmer livelihoods. For more information about our industry collaboration, please visit our corporate website.
