Inquire about a contract
Wakefield’s contract growers are honest folk with a passion to be long-term players in production agriculture! They take pride in a 360° job well done – whether it’s individual pig care, barn records, facility maintenance or selling the right pig every time – our growers honor their commitment to produce a quality meat product for families everywhere!
The road to success is always easier when it’s mapped out. It’s our goal to help you get there! Our dedicated field staff use a hands-on, side-by-side approach in the initial training stage of a new grower. They are given comprehensive guidance on specific tasks like animal care that follows the Common Swine Industry Audit standards, managing feed budgets and record keeping. We make WPI field staff available to answer questions and provide assistance in the first few weeks of start-up and through the duration of the agreement.
Once a new grower is up and running, our field staff visit farms on a weekly or bi-weekly basis to provide guidance on individual pig care, proper ventilation and adequate pit management.
With nearly 250 contracted farmers, we see a lot of facilities! We use that collective knowledge to keep you in the loop with the latest equipment, management strategies and industry news. That information will help you make continuous improvement decisions for your operation.
Wakefield has helped many established farm families and starting young farmers begin contract ventures. With our experienced guidance, we hope to add value to your operation and grow your bottom line!
To start, contact Wakefield by filling out our inquiry form. A company representative will call you and line up a meeting. We’ll review site plans and determine how we can help make your vision come to life by providing guidance on building design options and state and county permitting.
