Fire at NEW Cooperative's Lidderdale, IA, Feed Mill

Company shifts production to one of its other five facilities after Thursday's incident


NEW Cooperative is shifting feed production to other sites after a fire damaged the interior of its Lidderdale, IA, feed tower Thursday morning.

Fire crews were dispatched at 9:53 a.m. for a fire at the site’s pellet mill, which is nearly 140-feet tall.

Firefighters climbed more than a dozen flights of stairs with full gear and hoses to extinguish the blaze.

Damage to the structure was contained to the interior. NEW Cooperative Communications Director Gary Moritz told 1380 KCIM that they will transfer feed production to one of the other five facilities.
