Interview with Peter Mumm

06/04/2015

Peter Mumm

    

EGG-CITE had the opportunity to discuss the formation of Hendrix-ISA, LLC with the GM, Peter Mumm at a recent industry meeting. The items discussed are of interest to the readership of EGG-CITE and the U.S. egg production industry.

EGG-CITE: Peter, please provide a brief outline of your background in our Industry

Peter Mumm: I graduated in 1994 from the University of Wisconsin majoring in poultry science.  During my high school and university education I worked during summers on farms and recognized that I wanted to make chickens my career.  Over the past 20 years I have worked for a number of companies including Creekwood Farms, Dean’s Eggs, Primera Foods, Daylay and have spent the last seven years as the Director of Operations of Midwest Foods Association .

EGGCITE: You are now the General Manager of a new company Hendrix-ISA, LLC.  What led to the formation of this enterprise?

Peter Mumm: The Company was founded in January 2015 out of the realization that as a primary breeder, Hendrix Genetics required a substantial and stable presence in the U.S. to ensure consistency of production and quality.  Expansion also required considerable capital investment.  Accordingly after negotiations, it was agreed that Hendrix would acquire the production facilities and hatcheries of the Midwest Foods Association and follow the model used by the other primary breeder by integrating forward into parent stock.  I would add that Hendrix Genetics’ turkey division, Hybrid Turkeys has followed a similar program, with their contract production agreement  with Ag Forte.
