Primary Purpose of Organizational Unit
Artificial insemination is commonly used in the commercial swine industry. It is the technology that allows us to collect semen from a single male and dilute it to suitable concentrations for proper breeding of many females. This allows 1 boar to successfully breed 15-30 sows, resulting in financial savings. As a result, we at Maxwell Farms are committed to this technology and use it as an effective means of daily breeding at our corporate and contract sow farms.

Goldsboro Milling was founded in 1916 originally for the Feed Milling business. In the late 1950’s it expanded its operations into the turkey industry, growing and producing turkeys and eggs ultimately completing the first hatchery by 1967. In the late 1980’s the company diversified operations in the Swine industry and with this growth by September of 1988 a second Feed Mill began production to meet new company feed demand. In the fall of 1991 the company was presented with an opportunity in the local grain, buying and storage market, securing this acquisition with the purchase of Goldsboro Milling Grain. In 2005 the company further diversified its farming operations and ventured into the Blueberry Farming business. 2006 was a year of further growth with the opportunity to extend the company’s reach by entering a new market with operations in Indiana. In concert with the company swine operations, the company manages a 1100 brood cow herd, producing 1000 calves annually.
