Mountaire Farms Opens Feed Mill in North Carolina

Facility has capacity to be largest in the country

Mountainaire farms

For the first time since the 1940s, the rail line at the Laurinburg-Maxton Airport Commission is in use — with Mountaire Farms, Laurinburg, NC, recently receiving the first train to its new feed mill.

Mountaire Farms purchased 400 acres from the LMAC and Scotland County Economic Development Cooperation in 2017 with an additional 300 acres from private landowners — the purchase made them the largest single location manufacturer in the county.

The feed mill also has the capacity to be the largest feed mill in the country. On May 22, the mill got its first train of corn from a unit train that contained between 90 and 95 trains with the goal of receiving two unit trains per week for eight months out of the year.
