Independent farmers raise the chickens we use in our food product. We provide and deliver healthy chicks and nutritious, safe feed to these farmers. Our service technicians and veterinarians assist the farmers in monitoring conditions, environment, and feed.
We buy cattle and hogs on the open market from independent livestock producers. To ensure the safety and quality of our products, we work with industry associations to develop standards for the raising of these animals.
