June Company Update

Crops

-Done with regular acres and will finish planting by Dogwood after they are done tiling 

Construction

-Dogwood remodel is taking place (remodeling the farrowing unit) 

-Seeding, rock and some cement work is taking place at other locations

Production

Pinewood PRRS testing came back negative, they will potentially be getting gilts later this week. Research testing at Rosewood will be done this week.  Rosewood’s gestation will be empty as of this Friday and we will have farrowing empty there on June 10th. Then it will be sanitizing, disinfecting, and repopulating them from there.

The end result of this will mean that we will only have 1 PRRS positive farm (Weavers) and 2 PED positive farms by the middle of June.

-Interns (Kynzi Cole & Kole McNeer) are working on a project at Birchwood

-Southwood is getting gilts
