Seaboard Foods takes control of Texas Farm

Acquisition adds 25,000 sows to Seaboard inventory.

Nipponham Foods Ltd. (NH Foods) of Osaka, Japan, officially transferred Sept. 2 ownership of its subsidiary Texas Farm LLC, a hog operation located in Perrytown, Texas, to Seaboard Foods LLC for an undisclosed amount.

Texas Farm, established in 1995, has 25,000 sows in production, with a capacity for 40,000.

“As a result of our review from multiple points of view, such as future prospects and asset efficiency, we have reached to the decision that the business transfer is the best option,” NH Foods said in a notice of business transfer in a consolidated subsidiary.

The latest acquisition brings Seaboard total sow inventory to approximately 290,000 head.
