Sad Passing of Dave Pogge


According to a release by Mountaire Farms, former CEO Dave Pogge passed on August 26th at the age of 72 years. A native of Iowa he graduated from his state university in 1973. He joined Cargill Inc. and rose through senior positions in the broiler operation over a 16-year tenure.


He was appointed as president and CEO of Mountaire Farms in June 1989 at a time of financial stress for the Company that at the time comprised only the Selbyville, DE complex.  While serving as CEO through his retirement in December 2012, Mountaire expanded with the acquisition of the Piedmont Poultry, Lumber Bridge complex in 1996 and the Millsboro complex in 2000 complemented by establishing breeder supply flocks and a feed mill in North Carolina.
