At the time of signing the deal, Dolph Baker – chairman and CEO of Cal-Maine Foods said: “We are very pleased to announce the acquisition of these assets from Mahard Egg Farm. Cal-Maine Foods already has a market presence in Texas, and, with the addition of these facilities located near the major market areas north of Dallas, we have an opportunity to reach more customers in Texas and southern Oklahoma with this additional production capacity.

We look forward to the opportunity to extend our market reach and deliver greater value to both our customers and shareholders.”
