Prestage Farms

Nursery/Finishing

Weaned pigs are delivered to the nursery site by our trucking staff and received by one of our contract growing families who care for them until it is time for them to go to one of our contract finishing farms.  Nursery barns provide pigs with supplemental heat as well as free choice feed and water.  Diets are formulated to meet the nutritional requirements of our pigs during each stage of life.

At approximately 50 pounds, pigs are moved to one of our contract finishing farms where they are grown to market specifications.  Hogs are raised to match the customer’s needs.  When hogs are at the appropriate weight, trucks are sent to the farm and hogs are carefully loaded on specialized trailers by highly trained, Transport Quality Assurance (TQA+) certified loaders and drivers.
