Cargill opens expanded $34m feed mill at Texas site


By Aerin Einstein-Curtis, Feed Navigator



A renovated Cargill feed production facility in Temple, Texas has gone live; it has been expanded to 70,000 square feet to address feed demand in the region.


The Minnesota-based agri-giant announced the opening of the expanded facility on Friday [November 1]. Work on the site started in January 2018 and cost $34m in total.


A Cargill spokesperson told FeedNavigator: “Cargill chose to expand the Temple facility because of its location to our farm and ranch feed store owners as well as our beef feed customers."​


The site is expected to lower transportation costs for regional customers and provide “increased manufacturing capabilities,”​ she added.


The refit saw additional space for manufacturing, warehousing, packaging and shipping, the company reported.
