Dozens of local farmers have been lining up at the scales each day to sell corn to Mountaire Farms’ new feed mill in Scotland County, North Carolina, which started accepting local grain this summer, reports The Robesonian.
The company, which held a grand opening celebration on Wednesday at the new Scotland County Feed Mill, already has bought more than $8.5 million of corn from local farmers and plans to continue with the purchase of soybeans and wheat, according to Catherine Bassett, Mountaire Farms director of Communications and Community Relations.
The $60 million location has an 8,014-foot loop track, handling 110 or more rail cars and three locomotives on the CSX main line.
