Synergy Feeds management has been evaluating the benefits of adding another feed mill over the past year with the board approving the investment earlier this spring. Construction will
begin this fall as planned, with the mill being fully operational to serve customers in less than a year. Synergy Feeds is a partnership operation between two strong local cooperatives;
Ceres Solutions and Ag Plus. The new mill will operate from the existing site of Synergy
partner (Ag Plus), and will feature improved quality control, enhanced biosecurity and access to an existing grain facility.
“As we continue to grow our business at Synergy Feeds, and see the increased livestock production coming into our area, we have reached a level where increasing capacities is well timed to keep pace with growing demands,” said Synergy Feeds General Manager Brent Tracey. “This facility increases capacity over our successful South Whitley operation, and at
the same time, creates operational efficiencies that we can bring to the customers we already serve, and will serve in the future.” The location was selected due to customer proximity,
utilization of an existing grain facility, and existing utility advantages.
With significant expertise in the local marketplace and the backing of both Ag Plus and Ceres Solutions Cooperative (formerly NCC) behind it, the team at Synergy Feeds is confident the project will be good for the company and the community.
