Services & Solutions
85% of Alpha FS sales volume is generated from the pork industry. We
are very committed to the future and success of the pork producers that we serve. When our
company was formed 29 years ago we were in the feed business. The year 2000 is here and we
are not only in the feed business, but the food and people business today. Networking and
Aligned Production systems are buzzwords that all of us in Livestock hear every day. Alpha
FS has taken the following steps to aid our customer base to be competitive in the future.
Long Term Single Sources of S.E.W. Pigs
We have written long term agreements with "2"-1200 sow units to
purchase and provide our customer base with a consistent supply of high quality S.E.W.
Pigs. Pigs are priced on a formula based off of the futures market. Both sow units are
using the same genetics. The producers who buy the pigs and the sow unit managers meet
quarterly to exchange information and fine tune management practices. We are always
interested in talking to producers who would be interested in either producing or buying
"Market Access" Marketing Program
"Market Access" is a program which was developed by
IPLA to assure producers that they will receive top dollar for their hogs on a weekly
basis. Market Access works with 8-10 different packers to create competitive prices on a
weekly basis. This program also allowed our producers to market hogs weekly through the
Hog Crisis in late 1998-99.
Provide Producer Education on Risk Management
Alpha FS has developed relationships with several commodity professionals. These
people have been able to help our producers to become better marketers. We have had
several sessions, which have been very beneficial to those who participated.
Facility, Feed & Livestock Financing
Through our relationship with Land OLakes we are able to provide several
financing packages. Packages can be tailored to fit a producers specific needs.
Alpha FS will provide computerized record keeping services for producers to
monitor performance. We are very committed to ensuring that our producers will be able to
compete in this industry.
