University of Illinois to Break Ground on Feed Mill

New $11M facility will begin construction this fall

The University of Illinois (UI) has set a date to begin construction on a new feed mill, paving the way for demolition of the existing 90-year-old structure.

Construction is set to begin Sept. 8 and be completed by June 2019 at its new site at the UI's South Farms in Urbana, developer Peter Fox said in a letter to The News-Gazette.

So far, the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences has raised $6 million for the $11 million project, according to Andrea Ruedi, CEO of Fox Development.

The existing feed mill, with its tall, white silos, was built in 1927 and manufactures some 6,000 tons of feed each year for livestock and research.

The new feed mill would be able to produce 16,000 tons of feed each year.
