Brian Davis, our Brooder manager, explains our reasoning perfectly. “Deep cleaning adds integrity to our biosecurity plan and helps our equipment run properly. Organization and equipment inventory save people-hours, make us more efficient, and keep us ready if we have an equipment breakdown during the season." Read More »

We are already looking forward to the return of chicks to our MacFarlane Pheasants’ Milton Farm, located in Milton, WI. During the brooding season, we take care of our pheasants in the barns, and as birds move outside, we spend our time caring for them in the pens. Before we know it, our pheasants have all been delivered, and our pens are empty. As the weather gets colder, we still have plenty to do winterizing and preparing for the next season! Read More »

We sell many mature pheasants every year because the demand for high-quality pheasants is strong. We are pleased to provide these mature pheasants to our customers, and are grateful for their continued support of our business. The demand for MacFarlane Pheasants’ birds is constant, and our employees work hard to provide our clientele with great birds and service. We have shipped approximately 240,000 mature pheasants so far this year and deliveries will continue into March 2024. MacFarlane Pheasants’ drivers make deliveries all over the United States and Canada. There are two drivers on these long trips so that we can get our pheasants to their new owners without delay.

Troy Cisewski, our Director of Production at MacFarlane Pheasants was excited to share the changes to one of our barns at our MoPhe farm in Missouri. Our manager at MoPhe, Shane Smith, and his staff recently completed renovations, and a new breeder barn was born! Construction on the breeder facility began at the start of July 2023 with the removal of cages in the barn. Shane organized the removal of a wall separating two halves of the large barn. We installed tunnel fans, a water system, and a feed system. Next, the crew repositioned the lights to provide adequate lighting for this large area. Breeders for the 2024 season were placed in our remodeled space on October 9, 2023. The barn will hold 2600 breeder hens for egg collection. Read More »
