Environment

Our livelihoods are directly tied to the land, water and air, so we know better than anyone the importance of protecting the planet’s natural resources.

We are committed to:

  • Managing manure as a valuable resource and using it in a manner that protects air and water quality, while enhancing soil health.
  • Using buffer strips and tree windbreaks to improve air, soil and water quality and preserve wildlife habitats. Today’s barns also decrease environmental impacts while improving pig performance.
  • Protecting the quality of our natural resources.

How We Protect the Environment

To keep our farms’ environmental impact in check, we monitor everything from the soil and manure to water quality and emissions.
