Feed Mill Hosts Open House in Horace, IL

Facility will produce up to 450,000 tons/year of complete swine feeds

The Equity hosted an open house of their new state-of-the-art feed mill in Horace, IL, reports Wabash Valley.

Officials say the mill, which produces swine feed, is creating jobs, and opportunities for livestock production in the area.

"When we're fully operational and at capacity, we could go through as much as 6.5 million bushels of corn, and provide a market for the grain farmers as well," Darwin Wohltman, vice president of Feed & Livestock at The Equity, told Wabash Valley.

The mill started construction in 2016 and began operation in February 2018. It's designed to produce up to 450,000 tons/year of complete swine feeds, which will feed 1.35 million market pigs annually.

The mill will add demand for 6.4 million bushels of local corn and 2.7 million bushels of soybeans.

The Equity offers a broad range of products to fulfill their customers’ needs including: agronomy, grain services, feed and livestock, energy and a Hardware Do It Center.
