Scoular announces its latest investment in south-central Idaho – a $20 million expansion of its feed blending facility – will be designed to serve the growing and changing needs of dairy and beef producers.

Scoular said it will break ground this month on the project and is aiming toward spring 2024 completion.

The company’s existing facility in Jerome provides custom feed blends for dairy and beef customers. The expansion adds two capabilities:

  • A steamflaking process, which processes corn into flakes and makes the feed more digestible for cattle. The corn is steamed, heated, then pressed into a flake.
  • A pellet mill to make feed pellets. Pellets are easy to transfer, handle and proportion for optimal nutrition. Feed pellets typically are used for feeding calves and beef cattle.

“Agriculture drives the Magic Valley’s economy, and Scoular has made it a priority to support the industry through innovation, state-of-the-art facilities and programs that support local producers,” said Andy Hohwieler, a Scoular regional manager based in Twin Falls.

“With our latest investment, we look forward to creating new feed products that create solutions for endusers.”
