Versova owns and operates feed mills for three of its farms, including Ovation Farms. Our grain sites partner with local farmers to provide feed for our hens. This mutually beneficial relationship provides an added layer of connection to our communities. To meet the needs of farmers, Versova Grain offers a variety of grain contracts including cash, hedge to arrive, basis, delayed pricing and spot.

Ovation Farms has extensive production operations and processes eggs for both shell eggs and liquid eggs on site to ensure quality and freshness before shipping them to customers across the country.
Adhering to Versova’s guiding principle of quality and compliance, Ovation Farms utilizes and progressively updates its food safety and quality programs to ensure the most efficient and consistent egg production practices. In addition to the several national quality assurance programs our farm participates in, our teams take part in ongoing, intensive training to understand our food safety and handling procedures and policies.
The comfort, care and health of our hens is the No. 1 priority at Ovation Farms. Our flocks can roam in climate-controlled barns where they have continual access to fresh food and water. The enriched, cage-free housing gives our hens space for natural behaviors like perching, scratching and dust bathing, and curtains provide hens with privacy during nesting.
Versova’s full-time veterinarian oversees our disease prevention, flock health and employee animal care training programs. We continually monitor and improve our flock health and well-being practices and technologies to ensure that our hens are given the best possible care.
Ovation Farms is committed to lessening our environmental footprint and preserving natural resources on and around our farm for the next generation. Our farm follows and enforces a manure management system that’s in place across all Versova’s farms. Ovation Farms employees receive trainings on our environmental sustainability practices, and our teams work with local soil and water conservation agencies to ensure our sustainability procedures are efficient and effective. We also make recycling and composting a priority.
In Our Communities
Ovation Farms’ teams play an active role in the local communities by supporting organizations and schools, working with local farmers by contracting their grain products for feed, and educating community members about responsible farming practices.
Our farm is also a supporter of hunger relief organizations, donating millions of eggs each year to local food pantries through the Iowa Egg Council’s Cracking Hunger program.
