Ribbon Cut on New $20M Superior Ag Facility

Superior Ag, a Huntingburg-based agricultural cooperative, recently celebrated the opening of its new $20 million feed mill in Spencer County. The new site will have a significant output, up to 3,000 tons of livestock feed on a weekly basis. Production is expected to begin production in mid June.

The organization made the decision to build the new facility to meet compliance standards under the Food Safety Modernization Act. Cooperative officials reported that building a new location was more cost effective that retrofitting its existing locations. Some of the new features added to meet federal health and safety regulations include a new pelleting production line and automated bagging systems.

Superior Ag President and CEO Barry Day said, “The new facility will enable us to keep our costs competitive in our ongoing efforts to provide superior value to our member-customers through consistent delivery of high-quality products, innovation and service. The new feed mill will promote efficiency, reduce costs and provide local farms with enhanced livestock nutrition.”

Other Superior Ag locations in St. Meinrad and Jasper will be merging their operations into the new facility.

“We are completely grateful for all of the member-customers, community members, local, county, & state officials, vendors, media partners, industry partners, employees and even family members who came out to our Dale Feed Mill Ribbon Cutting to support our Livestock Nutrition Division,” the cooperative said via its Facebook.
