ADM's high-tech facility in Nebraska to meet customer needs for feed
Archer Daniels Midland Company celebrated the opening of its new, high-tech feed facility in Columbus, Nebraska, US.
"We are proud to invest in Columbus, and in a new, modern facility that will allow us to continue to meet customer needs for high quality, cost-competitive feed," said Samson Li, president of ADM Animal Nutrition.
"Adding value to agricultural products is at the heart of a strong and growing ag economy in Nebraska," said Gov. Pete Ricketts. "By producing high-quality livestock feed here, ADM is not only adding value to ag products, but their continued investment adds value to our state. We are excited that ADM continues to invest in Columbus and across Nebraska."
The new facility will feature state-of-the-art technologies, as well as an expanded warehouse space to serve customers more quickly and efficiently; a new production line to provide range blocks for cattle, dairy cows and horses; automation for receiving, batching, packaging, and loadout; multiple batching systems with simultaneous weighing for high efficiency and high output; and an integrated process control system designed to deliver consistent food quality and safety.
"From last year's Crosswind acquisition, to our new facilities across the US, to our growth in China, we are continuing to invest to ensure that ADM Animal Nutrition is the go-to partner for livestock, aquaculture and companion-animal customers around the globe," Li added.
