Cargill has opened a new animal feed facility at its Efremov, Russia, complex that is set to produce 50,000 metric tons of poultry and swine feed products.


The facility will focus on the production of prestarter and starter feed for chickens and baby pigs, as well as protein-vitamin-mineral concentrates, according to the company. It is the latest construction in a grouping that includes corn and wheat sweeteners plants, a vegetable oil refinery and bottling facility, a malt plant and an animal feed mill. A poultry processing plant is also under construction, said Cargill.
