02/27/2012 - Talley Farms Acquisition
Valley of the Moon Commercial Poults (VOMCP) is pleased to announce that it has completed the acquisition of the Talley Farms facilities in Anson County, NC. A total of 1.25 million square feet of farming space was acquired including brooding farms, four dark out farms, six laying farms and two stud barns. Also included are a field office, egg storage facility, maintenance shop and a wood shaving storage facility. In addition a long term contract was signed with High Ridge Farms to produce eggs. VOMCP will own the birds placed at High Ridge Farms and will implement its own quality control programs.
According to David Kenyon, President, “These farms will allow us to produce about 26 million eggs per year in Anson County and provide a solid foundation for quality egg production. The farms are isolated with concrete floors and shower facilities and we will implement our strict bio-security and quality control procedures. High Ridge Farm is also in Anson County so it was important to sign this contract to manage bird movement and production in the area as much as possible. We are very excited about this acquisition and our shareholders’ commitment the turkey industry and to the growth of VOMCP.”
Kenyon concluded, “We thank all our customers for the support they have shown us in the last several months. We began delivering an option for highly selected, quality Nicholas eggs and poults in January of this year and this further demonstrates our commitment to provide choice.”
