Get acquainted with the
Global Mega Produce
A program of recognition led by National Hog Farmer sponsored by Genesus Inc.
Christensen Farms has again been recognized as a Global Mega Producer for 2019.
Headquartered in Sleepy Eye, Minnesota, Christensen Farms is one of the largest, family-owned pork producers in the United States.
With nearly 1,000 employees and 1,500 contract partners, the company spans across the Midwest to include facilities in Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois and South Dakota.
They currently operate four feed mills, manage 145,000 sows on 44 farms, and oversee more than 350 nurseries and grow-finish sites.
The desire for a more integrated production model led Christensen Farms to become the largest shareholder of Triumph Food LLC.
Triumph Foods, LLC was organized in 2003 by a group of the largest U.S. independent pork producers whose goal was to create a pork processing operation capable of recognizing the benefits of an integrated business model. Today 487,200 sows are in production under the Triumph Foods brand. The company began processing operations in 2006, in St. Joseph, MO, currently with a processing capacity in excess of 6 million hogs per year
Triumph Foods also holds a 50 percent partnership in another primary pork processing plant, known as Seaboard Triumph Foods, LLC of Sioux City, Iowa. To support further pork processing for specialized items such as bacon and other premium products, Triumph Foods members own 50 percent of Daily’s Premium Meats.
Through key packer and partner relationships, Christensen Farms markets nearly 3 million hogs per year with increased traceability, quality assurance and pricing stability for their customers.
Let’s congratulate Christensen Farms for being a Global Mega Producer.
