Cal-Maine Foods, 44.99 million hens

The largest producer and marketer of shell eggs
in the United States, in fiscal 2019 net sales
were $1.36 billion. As of Dec. 31, 2019, Cal-Maine
Foods had 44,986,300 laying hens. 
The company closed the acquisition of certain assets
of Mahard Egg Farm, relating to its commercial shell
egg production, processing, distribution and sale of shell
eggs business, the company announced on Nov. 20. The
acquired assets include commercial shell egg production
and processing facilities with capacity for approximately
3.9 million laying hens and permitted capacity for up
to 8 million laying hens, a feed mill, pullets and related

production facilities located in Chillicothe, Texas, and
Nebo, Oklahoma, and a distribution warehouse located
in Gordonville, Texas.
Cal-Maine announced its intent to acquire Mahard
Egg Farm in October.
A fire destroyed a hen house at a Cal-Maine Foods
egg production facility in Chase, Kansas, on Nov. 20.
The building was considered a total loss. No injuries
were reported, but the building was reported to have
had hens inside at the time of the fire. A Cal-Maine
general manager told local news station KWCH that
the loss was significant for the facility, but not for the
company as a whole. 
In September, the planning commission of Millard
County, Utah, gave approval to plans submitted by
Cal-Maine Foods' Delta Egg Farms, which hopes to
expand its facility in the county. During a commission
meeting, Delta Egg Farms General Manager Scott
Patton explained plans to double and triple the egg
production capacity at the facility. The planned expansion would add five buildings to the facility and create
between 100 and 125 additional jobs, according to a
report from the Millard County Chronicle Progress.
