Project Description

This mill is designed to produce over 10,000 tons of swine feed weekly utilizing a batch/mix system rated up to 200 ton/hour.  There are 3 truck receiving lanes, 1,600,000 bushels of concrete grain storage, a grain dryer, an additional 1,000,000 bushels of steel bin corn storage, and a “day-bin” with overhead corn storage feeding space for 2 rollermills and 2 hammermills.  Two CPM 7932-12 pellet lines rated up to 45 TPH with post-pellet fat coaters in the headhouse distribute finished feed into a dual bay truck loadout with storage capacity of 2,600 tons.
