In 2015, the Grigsby Family made a major commitment to the swine industry by beginning construction of two wean-to-finish swine sites, one in Menard County and the other in Cass County. The Menard Site went into production in late 2015 with the Cass Site beginning production in early 2016. Both sites are permitted for 9,306 hogs. To continue our commitment to conservation, manure from operations is stored in deep pits under the barns for later application to adjoining fields via the direct injection method. Manure, as an organic compound, in accordance with a nutrient management plan will replace nearly 100 percent of the commercial fertilizer on select fields where corn, soybeans, and wheat will be grown.
We also partner with The Maschoff Family—one of the largest family owned hog farming networks in North America. They partner with family farms across the Midwest and are dedicated to using progressive farming family style. For more information on The Maschoffs, visit their website.
