Hi, Larry.

Larry has a wean-to-finish facility near West Point, NE.  Nearly 10,000 pigs are under his care – 6,600 of which live at the site we visited last week.

His barns are filled with Crystal Spring Water-Space feeders, and he calls his Pro Sort (large pen auto sort) system a tool that can make good growers even better.  I think Larry’s a great grower.

In addition to raising hogs for Tyson, Larry farms corn, soybeans and alfalfa.

His dad raised hogs and farmed before him, and Larry said he imagines his son will be involved one day, too.

“It’s just our way of life,” he said with a smile.  “I can’t imagine doing anything else.”
