Cargill marks 50 years of feed innovation
The Cargill Animal Nutrition Innovation Campus in Elk River (Minn, USA) will
celebrate 50 years of research, innovation and excellence in the animal
nutrition field this month.
The Cargill Innovation Campus is the main technology
center for Cargill's global animal nutrition businesses, which today operate in
26 countries. Over the last fifty years, research has gone from studying
production management techniques to exploration of nutrient values and
metabolism. Today's research at the Campus also lies in exploring how
developments in animal nutrition can be applied to human nutrition.
$2.4 million expansion in 2006, the Innovation Campus now sits on 900 acres and
employs 100 people locally (with another 30 globally) including 26 Ph.D.
nutritionists who specialize in species ranging from cattle and swine to
domestic dogs and cats, and even fish and shrimp. Related
