Cargill Pork dedicates Iowa feed mill

New Iowa feed mill part of nearly $60m in area investments by Cargill Pork.

FEEDING 1 million hogs annually requires a lot of grain, but Cargill's new $29 million feed mill in Hedrick, Iowa, is up to the task.

The 15-story-tall mill will operate 24 hours per day, six days a week to produce 350,000 tons of feed annually for more than 100 family-owned farms that raise hogs for Cargill throughout the region.

To celebrate the kickoff of mill operations, the company will hold a dedication May 12.
