Farmer cooperative Superior Ag has broken ground on a new feed mill in southwestern Indiana that will manufacture feed for beef and dairy cattle, swine and poultry.

The new feed mill, located at a former truck stop site in Dale, Indiana, will be capable of producing 3,000 tons of feed per week and will provide bagged to bulk products of feeds and supplements with an automated stacker and bagger. The mill will also feature a new pelleting line.

Superior Ag says the new site will merge its management and operation teams to a central location.

“Our feed milling operations are continuously growing due to customer and consumer demand. The new feed mill will promote efficiency, reduce costs and provide local farms with enhanced livestock nutrition,” said Barry Day, president and CEO of Superior Ag.  “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 a time when there are many new requirements being placed on the feed industry, this mill demonstrates a tremendous commitment by Superior Ag to agriculture and animal production in our tristate region,” stated Dr. John Baker with Warrick Veterinarian Clinic. “I believe they are a major reason why we have as many independent producers that we do in the area because of the consistency of quality products and services they provide.”

The new mill is expected to be operational in May 2018. It will employ 16 people initially, and 30 when at full operation.
