Cargill is expanding its presence in Ohio with a $50-million investment in a new premix and nutrition plant in Lewisburg. This was reported by Feedstuffs.
Cargill broke ground on the 220,000-sq.-ft. facility, which will sit on the same site as its current operation on State Route 503. The expansion will be completed spring 2019, and will result in a dozen new jobs in the Lewisburg area.

The new plant will be dedicated to manufacturing, non-medicated and antibiotic-free animal nutrition products for current and prospective U.S. customers. The facility will have four production lines and produce roughly 86,000 tons of animal nutrition products per year.

The plant will support Cargill’s Provimi brand of animal nutrition premixes and products, along with additives and specialty and custom blends. Cargill’s existing facility on the site will be dedicated to producing medicated products that are important to maintaining the health and well-being of livestock and poultry.

The company said the facility will have the latest manufacturing technology to increase employee safety and lower product quality risks. The Lewisburg facility joins six other Cargill premix feed and nutrition manufacturing facilities across the U.S in Guymon, Okla.; Hereford and Weatherford, Texas; Fremont, Neb., and Lewisburg.
