Cargill The company breaks ground on $50m Ohio feed facility
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.
