COVER STORY
" There isn't
any issue
we can't
overcome. "
- WALT SHAFER
to have great employees and we wanted to use
a saying Costco uses, 'We want to do the right
thing.' To have someone say that to you and tell
you to go out and put it together, I got to put
together everything I dreamed about. "
The opportunity provided Shafer the
means to try and do things he hadn't been
able to before, with the support of great
partnership from Costco.
" I thought, what a fantastic way to wrap up
one's career, " he said.

In 2015, Lincoln Premium Poultry existed
only as a concept in the minds of a select few.
In Fremont, only a handful of farmers had
experience with livestock, and that was hogs
and cattle, no chicken and predominantly row
crop farming. Shafer needed to
convince farmers in the Fremont
area to grow chickens for the
project. He had an advantage
when it came to selling chicken
growing to the local farmers.
Shafer grows chickens for
Pilgrim's Pride in Virginia. His
operation consists of six broiler
houses producing about 250,000
birds per flock. A manager runs
the farm, but every couple of
weekends Shafer goes back east
to take over and run the farm
himself. When Shafer reflects on
the Lincoln Premium project, he
believes being a grower might be
the biggest attribute he brought.
" When I stood up in front
of potential chicken growers
and said, 'I actually do it and I
actually invested my money in
doing it,' and then I can describe
to them the task and what it
meant, including how to windrow
a poultry house, to how to set
the waters to how the litter
needs to be composted. I think
that carried a lot of weight with
these farmers. "

After buy-in from the
growers, Lincoln's first employee,
Shafer, and his first hire, Jessica
Kolterman (Lincoln Premium
Poultry employee #2), director
of external affairs, needed to
convince the community in and
around Fremont that the plant
would be what it was supposed
to be, and the company intended
to fulfill its promise to do the
right thing.
