Tiger Group to Auction Assets of Zacky Farms Poultry Company


Pursuant to a UCC foreclosure process, Tiger Group and Barliant Auctions are accepting bids for a live online auction on March 5, 2019 for more than 200 units of well-maintained — as new as 2016 — rolling stock and farm equipment, including truck and farm tractors, poultry haulers, feed trailers, water trucks, pickup trucks and more.

The assets were formerly owned by Zacky & Sons Poultry d/b/a Zacky Farms, which filed for bankruptcy November 13, 2018.

Tiger and Barliant Auctions will follow that with a separate, two-day live online auction commencing March 12 for Zacky Farms’ poultry processing operations, including slaughter, whole bird packaging, boning and hot dog processing facilities and associated real estate. In advance of the event, Tiger is accepting offers for complete facilities or large blocks of the manufacturing assets. Interested parties may also submit offers — inclusive of real estate — to be sold with the cooperation of the real property secured parties.

“Food processing, agricultural, transportation and other companies will find tremendous value in the wide range of specialized assets and rolling stock presented in these auctions,” said Wayne Hecht of Tiger’s Commercial & Industrial Division.

Available rolling stock in the March 5th event includes more than ten 2013 Freightliner truck tractors; Ford, Chevrolet and GMC pickups and vans; and more than 70 dry van, reefer, poultry and utility trailers manufactured by Great Dane, Utility and others.

Farm and factory support equipment up for bid in the March 5 event includes tractors manufactured by Kubota, John Deere, New Holland and others; electric and liquid propane gas forklifts; pallet jacks; and more.

Poultry processing operations offered in the March 12-13 auction include a USDA turkey and chicken slaughter facility and whole bird packaging plant. Other major assets up for bid include a modern 100,000-square-foot hot dog processing plant with multiple vacuum blenders, a Weiler grinder, vacuum tumblers, Multivac packagers, a Weber slicing line, and a quality control laboratory featuring a Shimadzu chromatograph.
