A project in southeast Iowa Cargill broke ground on in the fall should be done by the end of the year. The corporation is building a $29 million feed mill in Hedrick. According to Mike Martin with Cargill, the plant will employ 12 to 15 people when it opens in December. Cargill chose the area due to its proximity to hog finishing operations, feedstock supplies and the company’s pork processing plants. The feed mill is expected to produce 350,000 tons of hog feed a year.
