Cargill opens US$34 million addition to US facility to expand feed production capacity

 

 

Cargill has opened a US$34 million expansion of its Animal Nutrition & Health facility in Temple, Texas, the United States

 

Construction of the 70,000 square foot addition for manufacturing, packaging, warehousing and shipping capabilities began in January 2018 and was completed in August 2019.

 

The facility is optimally located to serve Cargill's farm and ranch feed store owners and beef feed customers with reduced transportation costs for local customers and increased manufacturing capabilities.

 

"The investment  in Temple is about serving our customers and supporting the growing Texas farm and ranch feed store and beef feed markets," said Daryn Kracht, managing director of Cargill Animal Nutrition North America. "We are thrilled to be able to serve our customers better as we continue to invest in the Temple community."

 

"The Texas feed market has always been central to our animal nutrition business," said sales manager Joe Comte. "We are excited to offer improved access of our Nutrena, Record Rack and Cargill branded product lines to our farm and ranch feed store customers and the animal owners they serve."

 

The Temple facility currently employs 26 people and is capable of producing nearly 500k tonnes of bag and bulk animal feed per year.

 

In addition to the Temple facility, Cargill operates in 13 locations across the state of Texas, employing 3,947 Texans through its Animal Nutrition & Health, Grain Processing and Distribution, Starches and Sweeteners, and Protein businesses.
