Pelleting line's new equipment proves to be worth the scratch
A company works with a general contractor to improve its pelletized poultry feed production line.
Sanderson Farms Inc., headquartered in Laurel, Miss., operates poultry hatcheries, feed mills, and processing plants in the Gulf states region, producing various fresh, frozen, and processed chicken products that are sold throughout the US. In spring 2003, the company decided to upgrade an existing pelleting line at its feed mill in Hazlehurst, Miss., to increase the production of pelletized poultry feed. To do so, the company worked with a local general contractor to specify and install the required equipment.
