Cargill has announced plans to build a new animal feed facility in Bovina, Texas.

The company said the plant will be used for the production of various feeds, including its Sweet Bran and RAMP specialty feeds. It will be located next to an existing Cargill Cattle Feeders (CCF) location.

Mike Lewis, vice-president for feed at Cargill Corn Milling North America, said: “We are very excited about the possibilities for serving the growing livestock market from this location in Bovina. This is a very progressive, growth-oriented community.  And it’s in the heart of one of the biggest cattle feeding regions in the world.”

Construction of the new site is due to begin in August 2012, and should be completed by late summer in 2013. The facility will provide around 37 jobs.
