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 for hogs and turkeys. In fact, many family farmers have been suppliers to us for multiple generations.
Through our long-term relationships with hog producers, farmers are ensured a market for their animals. In addition to these agreements, our Jennie-O Turkey Store subsidiary also 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 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.
