Live Production


Our operations maintain the egg-laying hens in the field, ensuring we have a constant supply of hatching eggs available in order to meet consumers' demands for the freshest poultry.


We have responsibility for producing fryer chicks and overseeing our chicken grow-out ranches.

Feed Mill

We produce specially grown feed for our chickens and operate a fleet of trucks that services our grow-out ranches 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, ensuring that our birds are always cared for properly.

Live Haul

We skillfully deliver birds to our processing facilities many times a day in order to supply our customers with the freshest chicken possible. We also operate a fleet of trucks to pick up, stockpile and deliver rice hulls from rice mills around the state ensuring our birds have a comfortable living environment.


We run construction, electrical, plumbing and fabrication crews in support of all Live Production facilities.
