Our staff has designed, built, and permitted a wide range of sow farms across the Midwest. These systems fit all sizes and operational styles, from 2500-head units to 7500-head systems.
No matter the style of sow farm, we provide feasible, cost-effective solutions to a wide range of customers looking for:
Swine integrators continue to expand, furthering the need for new sow farms. As consumer demand and preferences change, the nature of sow farm design and engineering can change rapidly. Our team has experience in renovations of existing facilities to meet new concepts, and can create turnkey packages to fit all needs of progressive swine producers.
For our larger integrated customers, we have acted as a General Contractor for design-build services of various boar studs. These facilites are unique to the industry, and require specific features to protect the high value of boars.
We are capable of full sourcing and design for these systems, including:
Boar studs hold the highest value animals of any aspect in a swine integrator operation. Due to the nature of the animal, higher design and engineering standards have been set across the industry for biosecurity and animal productivity. We take all factors of ventilation, filtration, and features such as air conditioning, to create the ideal environment for these animals.
Swine integrators continue to expand their reach, and with that expansion comes opportunity for farmers of all types to diversify their operations. These contract growers realize a stable and significant return on investment when diversifying from traditional operations into swine production. Some of the most renowned benefits of contract grower programs include:
Deep-pit and manure storage facilities maximize nutrient recovery and output. Nearly 30% of the value in a swine finisher can be found in the nutrient content of its manure.
With steady cash flows and a predictable business model, becoming a contract grower for a swine integrator can be a lucrative investment for an equity investment or tax standpoint.
Expansion of operations can bring family members back into the daily family farm operations.
With unpredictable grain markets, contract swine growers realize a diversified and more stable source of income.
Swine integrators work in numbers, providing a predictable and consistent source of revenue to their contract growers.
