Cargill has entered into an agreement with Pennfield Corporation to acquire the company's animal feed mills and associated assets located in Mount Joy and Martinsburg, Penn., for $8.5 million. The sale, expected to close in January, does not include Pennfield's South Montrose, Penn., feed mill.


Pennfield had agreed to sell its assets to Wellsource Facilities Holding LLC in October 2012, but the company failed to pay the required purchase price and defaulted under its agreement. To facilitate the sale of assets, Pennfield filed voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy petitions on October 3, 2012.
