“Our feed milling operations are continuously growing due to customer and consumer demand,” said Barry Day, president and chief executive officer of Superior Ag. “The new feed mill will promote efficiency, reduce costs and provide local farms with enhanced livestock nutrition. 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 2016, Superior Ag’s board of directors made the decision to invest in the construction of a new facility.
“To be compliant with the FSMA regulations, the upgrades alone on our current facilities would far exceed the cost of the new facility,” the cooperative said.
With the new facility, Superior Ag intends to grow its Livestock Nutrition business.
Superior Ag’s current feed mill locations of St. Meinrad & Jasper, will merge all operations to the Dale location.
In April, Superior Ag agreed to acquire a former Cargill grain elevator located in Princeton, Indiana, U.S. The facility, which has grain storage capacity of 2.2 million bushels, will increase Superior Ag’s total grain storage capacity to 6.6 million bushels.
As a cooperative, Superior Ag provides a full range of coverage and responsive service to local farmers located in southwestern Indiana, northern Kentucky and the bordering regions of Illinois. Superior Ag has 13 agronomy locations, 6 grain elevators, 2 feed mills, 3 retail fuel stations, 2 hardware stores and a convenience store.
