Superior Ag opened a new feed mill in southern Indiana. The new facility has the capacity to produce 3,000 tons of livestock nutrition weekly and it grow Livestock Nutrition business of the cooperative.
Superior Ag Cooperative held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at its new Dale Feed Mill in southern Indiana on the 18th of May. The $20 million state-of-the-art feed mill has the capacity to produce 3,000 tons of livestock nutrition weekly and provide bagged or bulk products of feed and supplements.
Superior Ag said the new facility, increased pelleting capacity, added ingredients, higher quality products and more purchase power will allow it to provide more specialized animal nutrition to local producers and member-customers.
“Our feed milling operations are continuously growing due to customer and consumer demand,” said Barry Day, president and chief executive officer of Superior Ag. “The new feed mill will promote efficiency, reduce costs and provide local farms with enhanced livestock nutrition. The new facility will enable us to keep our costs competitive in our ongoing efforts to provide superior value to our member-customers through consistent delivery of high-quality products, innovation and service.”
In 2016, Superior Ag’s board of directors made the decision to invest in the construction of a new facility. “To be compliant with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) regulations, the upgrades alone on our current facilities would far exceed the cost of the new facility,” the cooperative said. With the new facility, Superior Ag intends to grow its Livestock Nutrition business.
