The Maschhoffs recently entered into a partnership with Whiteshire Hamroc which is headquartered in Albion, Ind. This represents two families with a long heritage of pig production working together to deliver a stream of animals utilizing The Maschhoffs’ internal genetic lines for The Maschhoffs’ production sow farms.
“This is a great opportunity for two well-respected families to work cooperatively toward future success within the swine industry,” says Dr. Bradley Wolter, President of The Maschhoffs.
The Lemmon family has been farming in north central Indiana for more than 100 years. Like many farm families, they diversified into swine production and ultimately founded Whiteshire Hamroc. The Maschhoff family has known the Lemmons for years and are excited to move forward with this partnership.
“This strategic partnership represents over a year of planning and preparation toward an effort that truly extracts the long family heritage in production agriculture and best attributes of both companies,” says Dr. Mike Lemmon, CEO of Whiteshire Hamroc LLC.
As part of the agreement, The Maschhoffs’ Technical Operations group will work cooperatively with Whiteshire Hamroc to produce genetic animals for further multiplication within The Maschhoffs’ system.
