How it Works
Under a typical partnership arrangement, TriOak supplies the pigs, feed and health services. Pigs are moved from one of twelve reproduction sites to a grow-out facility provided by the contract grower. Farm contractors provide the animal husbandry services and work closely with TriOak field personnel to ensure that the comfort and well-being of the pig come first.
As an added benefit, responsible manure management techniques provide valuable fertilizer for row crop farming, while contributing to the sustainability of the operation as a whole.
When the pigs are mature, the TriOak marketing crew assists the farm contractor in identifying the proper animals for market. Selecting the optimum weight range and employing proper loading techniques help ensure a quality pork product for consumers and a healthy return for the grower.
