Zoltenko Farms, Inc. (ZFI) is a progressive and family-owned commercial boar stud, livestock and farming operation located in Jewell County Kansas, two miles from the Nebraska border. The farmhouse that serves as the company office was built by the founder’s great-grandfather in 1903, and our farm will celebrate a milestone as a century farm in 2017.
We had always been a traditional crop and livestock operation until 1998 when we made the business decision to liquidate our sow herd and either retire or convert the existing swine facilities into boar housing.
ZFI realized that if we were to be successful in a highly competitive industry, we needed to supply our customers with high quality, fertile semen from genetically superior animals. We also wanted to bring the added value of personal delivery to our customers. We realized in order to provide a superior product to our customers, we needed to develop our own delivery system, thus allowing complete control of the product from our boar to their door. The company slogan of “We Deliver The Male” was coined, and our first dose of semen went out of the driveway in one of our climate controlled delivery vehicles. We celebrated our 19th anniversary of “Delivering The Male” on June 6th, 2017.
Today ZFI houses over 1100 working boars and 110 isolation boars at two sites, located two miles apart. A new 400 head, air-conditioned facility, has recently been completed. Semen from both sites is transferred to a brand new, state-of-the-art off-site production laboratory that was put into service in December 2013. We currently produce around 22,000 doses of semen each week. Collection is accomplished on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and is delivered to customer farms by our delivery vehicles on one of our ten routes. We currently deliver semen to sow farms in seven states.
The boar stud business is our livelihood. God has blessed our family with this business and we strive daily to honor that blessing by treating our team members, customer partners and supplier partners with the respect and appreciation they deserve. We do not own sows, nor do we manage them. We do not take our eye off the ball. At ZFI, “We Deliver The Male” is more than a slogan, it’s what we do.
