Each year, since 2011, The Maschhoffs recognize an employee who has displayed the company core values through key business decisions and leadership actions. The Core Values award is a prestigious honor that recognizes the outstanding commitment of a single individual. This year's winner is Katie Brown, associate director of research and innovation.

The company core values are how The Maschhoffs operate, collaborate and identify. The below set of values serve as an authentic reflection of the company culture. They define how employees collaborate with one another, care for the animals, engage with the community, and serve customers. 

  1. People and Partners - We value and respect our employees and partners.

  2. Good Animal Husbandry and Sustainability - We are committed to providing the best care of our animals and the environment.

  3. Innovation - We are dedicated to business innovation and continued improvement through knowledge and discipline.

  4. Customer Focus - We strive to continually exceed the expectations of our customers.

Caleb Shull, director of research and innovation, notes that "Katie embodies the TML culture of being people focused and progressively minded. She has continually grown as a leader and at each step has demonstrated a unique ability to connect with and motivate team members. She has demonstrated the ability to lead her teams in executing complicated research practices at a high standard of excellence to help find innovative solutions for the company. She motivates her teams to not only collect high quality data, but also provide excellent animal care and system leading grade A percent."

Katie's colleague, Nick Boehl adds that "she is competitive, sincere in her interactions and genuinely cares about her team and colleagues."

Brown has found time to serve as an at-large director for Illinois Pork Producers Association and was nominated and accepted for the NPPC Pork Leadership Institute Class of 2023.
