Herbruck’s Poultry Ranch’s are constructing a new feed mill at their Henry facility in Saranac, Michigan, in an effort to make it easier and handier to feed the 2.5 million chickens they hold.
Herbruck’s Poultry Ranch's director, Herb Herbruck, said that once constructed the new feed mill will produce standard and organic feeds for the hens at the Henry facility and the Green Meadow Organic facility.
Herbruck continnued “The Henry (facility feed) currently is being made at the Main Farm on Grand River,”
“This will divert that feed from being made on Grand River, and being trucked from the Main Farm to what we call the Henry.”
The newly constructed feed mill is expected to remove the need for transporting costs, and also make it much more convenient for the hens. Herbruck said “It takes a big part of the transportation out of it, and it is made where it is consumed - from the feed mill to the hen houses,”
All the feed ingredients will also be received at the new feed mill, which is expected to output approximately 500 to 600 tonnes per day of organic and standard poultry feed for approximately 4 million hens located at both facilities.
