Get acquainted with the Global Mega Producer

Program sponsored by Genesus Inc. in collaboration with National Hog Farmer


Twenty-seven pork producers, with each managing over 100,000 sows, can claim the title of Global Mega Producers this year. The Mega Global Producers are as diverse as their geographic location.

Iowa Select Farms is the largest pork producer in Iowa with nearly 800 farms and managing over 180,000 sows with 1,200 employees and 650 contractors.

It was founded by Iowa Falls natives, Jeff and Deb Hansen. In 1992 Hansen had a vision to build his own farms. After obtaining financing and a contract for his first 10,000 sows, Iowa Select Farms was born. Their dream was to build a farming business that would produce high quality pork while benefiting Iowa through job and economic growth and they did.

Congratulations Iowa Select Farms !
