Swine Production Opportunities Meeting Nov. 14, 2019

November 11, 2019

Do you have an eye for detail and a solid work ethic? Diversifying your farming operation to protect yourselves against grain markets and to keep labor busy has become popular in the past few years. Our feed division at CVA takes pride in helping producers find the solutions they need when it comes to not only feed products, but also helping them find solutions that help make their operation successful.  

On Thursday, November 14, 2019, you are invited to Chance’s “R” (Tommy-Suz Beer Garden) in York, Nebraska, for a meeting with The Maschhoffs, a family-owned business, on financing swine production opportunities. This meeting will begin at 11:30 am and conclude around 1:00pm. To RSVP contact your CVA feed sales specialist or email Business development manager Carl Jacobson at by November 10th.

Topics covered in the “why build” of the financing meeting include:
  -Low Risk
  -Consistent Monthly Payments
  - Build rural Americas equity
  - Invest in the next generation

Getting started can be a challenge for many young people who want to become part of the family farming operation.  Did you know that building a swine finishing facility is looked at by most lending institutions as one of the lower risk loans in agriculture today? Managing a 2,500-head hog barn usually averages 2-3 hours per day, leaving time for work on other areas of a farming operation.  Once a finishing barn is paid off, it will normally generate enough income to support a family’s living expenses. Producers are realizing that livestock production, either private or contract production, offers a hedge against grain prices.

In addition, the value of the manure varies according to the prices of commercial fertilizer but has shown it to be $4-$6/head through the barn on most wean-to-finish barns.  It is safe to say for every 1,000-head capacity a barn has, there is enough manure produced to fertilize 80 acres, while a 2,500-head barn will cover 200 acres.
The Central Valley Ag feed team is committed to working with you to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and provide information on industry changes to help make decisions that meet the needs of your livestock operation. To learn more about CVA, visit our feed page at
