wpc builds its west side hatchery

In 1953, WPC decided to get out of the processing business and focus its efforts on hatching. By 1960, WPC either owned or had interest in four hatcheries in Minnesota and consolidating those operations was completed in 1966 when the West Side Hatchery was built. The hatchery was expanded twice between 1966 and 1970 making it the largest turkey hatchery in the world. WPC hatched nearly 8 million poults in 1970.
