Moroni Feed Company resumed full production March 11, following a three-and-a-half-month suspension in response to high grain prices.

“Our growers and employees are excited to be back in production,” said Kent Barton, president of Moroni Feed Company. “While grain prices have corrected somewhat, we remain concerned about the amount of corn that is channeled into ethanol production under government mandates and subsidy programs.”
