The mission of the Agri-Services division is to produce, purchase, and provide food items needed to meet master menu requirements, efficiently manage agency-owned land resources, and provide meaningful employment to inmate workers.
Agri-Services manages beef cattle on farms located within facilities across the state that encompass more than 19,000 acres. In addition, Agri-Services manages a meat processing center, a food processing plant, a dairy/milk processing facility, an egg distribution warehouse, and two food distribution warehouses. These production facilities provide a wide variety of food items for inmate consumption. Primary income generators for the Agri-Services division include the sales of livestock, meat, milk, eggs, canned and frozen foods, fresh vegetables, small grains, pecans, firewood, and leather goods.
