Food Safety and Quality



Animal Care


There are few jobs more important than caring for and raising pigs to provide safe, quality pork to feed your family.

Because the pork we make is served on tables around the world, we foster a culture of asking why to make sure we are raising pigs for food the best way we know how.

From our pig farmers to our quality assurance team, our people continuously evaluate how to do things better.

As part of our commitment to you, we want to share more information on what we do, how we do it and why we do it.

Doing Better by Knowing Better Video Series
We know you have questions about how your food is raised. With our “Doing Better by Knowing Better” video series, we aim to provide you with some answers. Members of our Seaboard Foods team will give you a behind-the-scenes look inside our barns and processing facilities, and answer some of the most common questions we receive about how we raise healthy pigs to deliver healthy, delicious and nutritious pork.

Animal Handling: We want to share with you how we move our pigs from the barns to the trailers headed for our processing plants. In this video, our dedicated crews show how we keep our pigs calm and safe when handling. Watch our animal handling video.


Sow Comfort & Housing Video: Tune in as a member of our team, full-time veterinarian Dr. Rebecca Robbins, gives you a tour of a Seaboard Foods sow barn. You’ll learn how farm employees are trained to tell when a pig is comfortable and what works better for the animals. You’ll see both the individual pens (also called gestation crates) and open pen housing (also called group pens) we use at Seaboard Foods. Watch the sow comfort and housing video.

Antibiotic Use Video:
Seaboard Foods knows healthy pigs mean healthy pork. Seaboard Foods’ lead veterinarian, Dr. Luc Dufresne, explains how antibiotics are used as just one part of a total care plan to raise healthy pigs. You’ll also hear from Dr. Rob Elder, our director of food safety, who will discuss the safeguards in place to ensure safe, wholesome pork. Watch the antibiotic use video.
