Official opening of redeveloped Exeter feed mill

Farmers from across the South West are being invited to attend the official opening of ForFarmers’ Exeter feed mill after its £10 million redevelopment.

The ForFarmers feed mill in Exeter has undergone a significant rebuild and restructuring process over the last two years in order to increase the mill’s output capacity from 140,000 to 300,000 tonnes of animal feed a year. In celebration of the completed renovation project, farmers are being invited to attend the mill’s official opening on Saturday 21st September, at 11.30am.

After an official welcome from ForFarmers UK Chief Operating Officer, Steven Read, visiting farmers will be given a chance to tour the mill’s facilities and observe demonstrations of the site’s new state-of-the-art loading and blending systems.

“One of the key aims for ForFarmers in the UK is to improve the productivity and efficiency of our mills,” explains Steven Read. “The investments that we have made at Exeter have been geared around not only improving the quality and efficiency of how we produce feed on site, but also delivery to our customers. For example, the new out loading facility that has been installed utilises pre-loaded feed bins and has cut discharge of feed into delivery vehicles from 90 minutes, to 90 seconds – reducing delivery times and enabling a higher of volume of customer deliveries each day.”

The new facility will be 15 meters taller than the previous mill structure to accommodate a new, energy efficient vertical feed conveyor transport system, which will not only reduce the site’s energy consumption but also increase product quality.

“The redevelopment is an exciting step forward and after years of hard work and significant financial investment, it is great to see the Exeter Mill running to its full potential,” concludes Mr Read. “The redevelopments will have a really positive impact on our UK business as a whole, but especially our South West based customers.”

Attendance at the official opening is free, but farmers wishing to visit the mill must register their details.
