We’ve implemented the following guidelines to ensure safe and responsible transportation of the chicken, cattle, hogs, and turkeys we process for our food products.

  • We seek to minimize stocking densities, travel times, ensure proper ventilation, and protect the animals from harsh weather conditions.
  • If transportation of the animals exceeds 28 consecutive hours they are unloaded and provided feed, water, and rest.
  • We maintain emergency management plans for motor-vehicle accidents involving animals in transport.
  • Our processing plants maintain standard procedures for receiving live animals that require unloading animals as soon as possible, providing water at all times, and feeding the animals if they are kept for longer than 24 hours.
  • We use the North American Meat Institute Transportation Audit Guidelines for Cattle and Hogs at all our beef and pork processing plants.
  • In addition to our support of the National Pork Board’s We Care Initiative, we provide manuals that recommend good management and well-being practices to the drivers who transport live animals to our plants. We also provide drivers who transport cattle to our beef plants the Master Cattle Transporter Guide by the National Cattlemen's Beef Association.
