Hubbard feed mill in US closes

Hubbard Feed Mill in Selma, North Carolina, US, closed last week after after in continuous operation for 39 years.

Ten employees have lost their jobs, according to Mike Hudspith, president of Ridley Inc., which owns the mill. He said that the Selma plant was acquired when the company purchased Wayne Feeds. He said the nearest plant is in Pennsylvania.

The plant has manufactured feed for dairy, beef, swine, poultry and horses. The products are primarly sold wholesale, but also to producers. Reason for shutting down had to do with location in the southeast of the US. Most of Ridley's other plants are in the Midwest. The company could not make the Selma plant profitable enough to keep it operating.

Hudspith said the plant is for sale and that Ridley Inc., which is headquartered in Mankato, Minnesota, would like to see a buyer.
