Animal-nutrition company PerforMix, a subsidiary of AgriBeef Co. in Boise, broke ground on a liquid-supplement production facility in Rupert, Idaho.
The facility will produce liquid feed supplement for the dairy and beef cattle industries, encompassing four separate buildings with tanks and a truck yard on 6.8 acres of the company's 10-acre site, said Jim Keppen, PerforMix president. The new facility represents significant investment, several millions of dollars. Operations are expected to begin in December or January, he said.
100,000 tons of production annually
The plant will have a capacity for 100,000 tons of production annually and will employ 15 at maximum production, including five drivers through partner trucking company Ag Express. The Rupert facility will serve PerforMix's customer base across Idaho and allow the company to expand its beef and dairy business across the Pacific Northwest, Keppen said.
