3 Living United United Way 2010 Dear Associates, When we were young, we learned the value of teamwork. We learned that, by working with others, we could do much more and in less time than we could do on our own. The United Way offers a classic example of just how powerful a force of teamwork can be. Through a vast network of volunteers and donors, our United Way makes sure that a wide range of services is available to people who need them. These services address some very real problems that are confronting our communities problems such as homelessness, substance abuse, and a lack of programs for the disabled, elderly, and children. Indeed, many of the health and human care services our communities have come to rely on are there because people, working together through United Way, make these services available. United Way is a story of hope and help and working together. Each of you played an important role in the success of our company year 2009 United Way Campaign. Due to your very generous contributions to the United Way, the story of helping others will continue for another year. I am proud of the tradition of community support that Sanderson Farms has established; and through your generous contributions, that tradition of giving continues. Lampkin Butts President and Chief Operating Officer Our employee pledges for 2009 totaled $345,669. The company will match what the employees give to the United Way. Our giving will impact the United Way s ability to help others and ultimately give those in need hope. I am very proud of our employees generosity and very pleased to have each of you as members of the Sanderson Farms Team. As in the years past, you will play an important role in the success of our company s 2010 United Way Campaign. I ask that you join with me in supporting our team effort for United Way. Sincerely, Lampkin Butts President and Chief Operating Officer Fall

5 Guiding Principles Since the 1950's our company has operated on the principles of treating others with respect; being honest in all of our dealings; being people of integrity and being as good as our word. The employees of Sanderson Farms must embrace those principles as outlined in our philosophy statement and in our vision statement. Our guiding principles of treating people with dignity and respect should be at the center of our relationships with employees, customers, contract producers, vendors and suppliers. The guiding principle of following the policies, rules, procedures and programs should be at the center of all decisions each of us make. Our guiding principles, including superior achievement and successful people, are what makes Sanderson Farms special and it is up to each of us to assume the responsibility of incorporating those principles into our work. Recently, I had the honor of meeting Mayor Rudy Giuliani and the opportunity to hear him speak. He began his remarks by stating that successful people and successful organizations believe in guiding principles. Robin Robinson, Director of Organization Development and Corporate Communication, and Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former Mayor of New York City. As for him, he believes in God and the principles on which the United States of America was founded. As the Mayor spoke, he shared stories or illustrations to help make his point on the guiding principles that make a person successful and that make organizations successful. He talked about his book on leadership and shared the characteristics that he feels creates a leader. I would like to share with you excerpts from his book and also the principles of leadership that he writes about which helped him navigate the responsibility placed on him after September 11. From the book, Leadership, by Rudolph W. Giuliani: I have always loved to write. That s what writing a book is: bringing together the threads of a complicated theme and weaving them in a clear, convincing story. I thought that the experiences I had accrued and the strategies I had developed had provided enough material to offer valuable insight to readers about leadership. I had no idea that I would soon face the greatest leadership challenge of my life. During the spring and summer of 2001, I worked on this book alongside my official duties as mayor, taking voluminous notes on a trusty legal pad. By summer s end, the structure of the book had taken shape. One of the reasons I found this process so satisfying was that it was not simply the passive activity of transcribing foregone conclusions: it was an active pursuit. Putting this book together forced me to consider my ideas more deeply, to challenge them in my own mind. continued on page 6 Fall

6 Guiding Principles continued from page 5 By September 11, I had been working on the book for months. It had become almost a seminar for me, a self-imposed program on how to run an organization. It was as if God had provided an opportunity to design a course in leadership just when I needed it most. By the time of the horrible events of September 11, because of all that I d been working on, the elements were fresh in my mind, which gave me more confidence. Every single principle that follows was summoned within hours of the attack on the World Trade Center. Surround yourself with great people. Have beliefs and communicate them. See things for yourself. Set an example. Stand up to bullies. Deal with first things first. Loyalty is the vital virtue. Prepare relentlessly. Underpromise and overdeliver. Don t assume anything. And, of course, the importance of funerals. It was ironic, prophetic, and very useful that all these principles had been discussed and analyzed so recently. As I read Mayor Giuliani s book, the principles that he outlined include: Develop and Communicate Strong Beliefs: Develop strong beliefs; re-examine beliefs; communicate strong beliefs; be direct and unfiltered; language is important; stick to your word; tailor the message to the listener Organize Around a Purpose: Chart it; understand it First Things First: set the tone; start small with success; always sweat the small stuff Prepare Relentlessly: visualize things for yourself; instill preparedness in others Study. Read. Learn Independently Reflect, Then Decide: be ready to pull the trigger when time is short; use creative tension; hear people out Everyone s Accountable, All of the Time: Accountability across the board; do what s possible, try what s not Be Your Own Man: set an example; defy expectation Underpromise and Overdeliver: promise only when you re positive Stand Up to Bullies Loyalty: The Vital Virtue Surround Yourself with Great People: analyze strengths and weaknesses (including your own); learn from great teams; résumés aren t everything, motivate Attending Weddings is Discretionary, Attending Funerals is Mandatory 6 Fall 2010

14 GROWERS KINSTON We have lift off in North Carolina... Marty Flynt Launching a new production division is no small undertaking. There are months of planning, recruiting, scheduling, building, and preparing for placing the first birds on the ground. On April 6, 2010, the first pullet breeder flock was placed in Kinston Production Division. According to Randall Boehme, Kinston Production Division Manager, We welcome the Lee family as new growers for Sanderson Farms, and would like to thank Robert, Argen, and daughter, Toni, for all their hard work in preparing the farm and getting the birds off to a good start. The birds will remain on the pullet breeder farm for approximately 22 weeks and then will be moved to breeder hen farms where egg production will begin. Those eggs will be transported to the new Kinston Production Division hatchery, set and three weeks later the baby chicks will be placed on broiler farms. This cycle is repeated continually at each of our production divisions. Congratulations to all those involved for reaching this milestone at our newest division, Kinston Production.

16 Veterinary View: Biosecurity Too Dr. Phil Stayer With the hopes of cooler weather in the coming months, it is time to remember bird health lessons learned from previous winters so we capitalize on successes and don t repeat mistakes we made or observed in others. The winter of started out well with Bird Flu (Asian High Path H5N1) out of the headlines and Infectious Laryngotracheitis (LT) finally cleared from north Georgia and north Alabama. This good news lasted until late February 2010 when we were notified that LT was found in south Georgia commercial chicken flocks, near our chicken production area. Within days of notice of LT near our flocks, Sanderson Farms live production veterinarians traveled to our south Georgia operations to educate our onsite personnel about LT. Part of the training was on the disease itself. LT is a chicken health issue with no risk to human caretakers or consumers. More training time was spent on finding extra steps to prevent LT entry into Sanderson s flocks as well as reviewing Sanderson Farms Chicken Growing Biosecurity and Salmonella Control Program. Additional biosecurity steps in areas with LT (as well as several other diseases) include visitor restrictions and disinfection of automobiles entering grow-out facilities. In south Georgia we immediately limited visitors to off-site visits, allowing only those suppliers with products in use to enter our buildings to restock inventories and monitor applications. As non-typical diseases such as LT come closer, more vehicle disinfection is indicated so we installed tire spray stations at the hatchery and feedmill to disinfect all incoming traffic. Our Adel grow-out operations even went as far as disinfecting all company trucks entering farms, encouraging contract growers to do the same with their cars and trucks to reduce the risk of LT entering their farms. Sanderson Farms Chicken Growing Biosecurity and Salmonella Control Program was the backbone of LT prevention. Our biosecurity program was originally designed for routine use to create multiple barriers against diseases that are normally found in backyard poultry, wild birds and even mammals. The first step of biosecurity is to limit the contact between Sanderson s flocks and other animals: the best risk is no risk. Since our contract growers have the most contact with our flocks, they are the most critical part of the success of our Adel Production, Rutland Poultry Farm entrance Adel Production Feedmill truck entry spray 16 Fall 2010

17 Veterinary View: Biosecurity Too biosecurity program. Our growers post no entry signs at their farm lane entrance to discourage unnecessary vehicle traffic onto the farm. The only people on the chicken farms are those needed to take care of the animals: all others are to be met away from the chickens. Contract growers, their helpers and any personnel entering the chicken houses are forbidden from having contact with other poultry besides the flock on their premises. If a contract grower or employee puts him or herself in a position of higher disease risk, say a duck hunt or trip outside of the U.S., then there are procedures to follow prior to resuming work with Sanderson Farms flocks. For example, bird hunters are to shower and change out of their hunting clothes before going back to their flocks. International travelers are to stay away from live chickens for three weeks, as that is longer than the time Bird Flu or other diseases take to infect a person. The chicken houses themselves are designed and operated to keep out other animals. Doors are to be locked when growers leave the premises to prevent uninvited entry into the flock. All houses have footbaths with long acting disinfectant stationed by the entrance so that unseen microbes on the bottoms of shoes are killed before they might fall off amongst the flock. Any material, such as spilled feed, dead chickens or used litter that may attract other animals is to be removed from the chicken houses. Rodents, wild birds and migratory waterfowl are further discouraged from visiting chicken farms by keeping houses in good repair, removing debris, cutting grass and baiting for rodents. Sanderson Farms service technicians are the next link in our biosecurity program. They arrange their work day to start with the youngest birds so that they give first priority to our most fragile flocks. Service personnel park their company vehicles away from either air inlets or exhausts so that the trucks themselves are neither the source of or carry away any unwanted viruses or bacteria. Employees are to keep their company vehicles clean, inside and out, as much as weather will allow. While on the farm, service personnel follow the same biosecurity procedures as contract growers. Service technicians also wear protective outerwear before they enter the chicken houses: disposable boot covers, continued on page 18 Evan Carter, Broiler Supervisor, Adel Production Mike Tamimi, Division Manager, Adel Production Fall

18 Veterinary View: Biosecurity Too Dr. Phil Stayer continued from page 17 coveralls and head bonnets. Despite goofy appearance, protective outerwear has proven to keep diseases from spreading from one farm to another. Sanderson Farms employees are to come to each farm clean and leave clean. Even though other Sanderson Farms personnel or contractors are in the chicken houses much less frequently and for shorter periods of time than either contract growers or service technicians, they also play a part in biosecurity. For instance, any vehicle driven into the chicken house, such as fresh bedding suppliers or pesticide applicators, must be clean and disinfected prior to entry. Personnel bringing in flocks, either one day old chicks or fully mature hens, are covered with protective outerwear, much like our service technicians. Since feed delivery and egg pick up drivers do not enter the houses to get among the birds they do not need coveralls but are required to disinfect their footwear. Catchers remove the flocks, so they pose a minimal biosecurity risk to flocks as the time after their contact is measured in hours rather than days. Anyone else visiting Sanderson Farms flocks must have prior approval from live production management. Farm visitors must confirm they have not been in contact with other poultry for 48 hours and have been in the U.S. at least three weeks. There are other stipulations that must also be cleared with local live production management that address specific details. Many times visitor requests are denied since the best risk is no risk. Back to lessons of the winter of : the south Georgia LT outbreak lasted until May when hot weather finally stopped the spread of the LT virus. Our neighbors never figured out how LT got into their flocks and spread. To our knowledge they did not follow the same level of intense biosecurity practices we do. In fact, Mike Tamimi, Adel Live Production Division Manager, and his staff continued to ask the live production veterinarians about other possible biosecurity measures to ensure the health and safety of our south Georgia flocks. Our folks in south Georgia avoided LT getting into our flocks, due in most part to implementation of our heightened biosecurity program. In this case, as with any successful biosecurity program, no news is good news! Routine biosecurity allows us to carry on business as usual. However, when circumstances change then our biosecurity practices must change in turn, just as they did this past winter in south Georgia. With the cooler nights as reminders of our success in , let s execute our Chicken Growing Biosecurity and Salmonella Control Program to make a healthy fall and winter, too! 18 Fall 2010
