Pillen Family Farms acquires Nebraska farms from The Maschhoffs

The Maschhoffs acquired this network of sow farms in 2011 when the company purchased them from NPP (Nebraska Pork Partners).

Pillen Family Farms has agreed to purchase 16,000 sows along with the associated nursery and finishing farms in Nebraska from The Maschhoffs. Also as part of the purchase, the multi-generational family-owned farming operation based in Columbus, Neb. acquired a truck wash there and a number of contract finishing farms.

“We are extremely excited to add these farms to our core footprint in eastern Nebraska,” says Jim Pillen, CEO of Pillen Family Farms. “We’re also thrilled to have this dedicated team join our family. It’s a win-win situation for us.”

The Maschhoffs acquired this network of sow farms in 2011 when the company purchased them from NPP (Nebraska Pork Partners). Bradley Wolter, president of The Maschhoffs, says the sale to Pillen Family Farms makes sense for both of the family-owned companies.

“The team in northeastern Nebraska is excellent,” says Wolter. “The Pillen family is perfectly suited to ensure these farms are successful in the long-term. It’s a great example of two farm families working together to create long-term success for the Nebraska pork industry.”
