Inside the University of Illinois’ new Feed Technology Center
The $20 million state-of-the-art facility replaces the existing 95-year-old feed mill.
The Feed Technology Center on the University of Illinois campus in Urbana-Champaign, Illinois, US, will open new opportunities for students, faculty and the industry overall.
The facility would not have been possible without the unique public-private partnership in which private industry came through with a significant amount of monetary and equipment donations. Some equipment was donated outright and some was sold at a significantly discounted price.
Bühler provided $1 million of equipment to the center, including a MultiImpactMAX hammer mill.
Other equipment at the center includes a GSI dryer.
The feed mill is made of slipform concrete and can produce 8,000 tons of feed per year.
Feed is bagged with a bagging system donated by JEM Interational.
The center includes a Wenger extruder and auxiliary processing equipment.
While the center is part of the University of Illinois’ College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences (ACES) program, officials believe it will provide multiple opportunities to engage other departments within the university. Photo courtesy of the University of Illinois.
