American food firm Perdue Farms recently upgraded its hatchery, feed mill, and live production office in Forsyth, GA with a new $3.8 million feed loading system that will improve the site’s rail unloading capabilities, a company official told the Monroe County Reporter.

The new equipment replaced a conveyor system installed at the site in 1994 that became worn over time and generated a foul odor, the facility’s manager, Clay Copeland, said in an interview with the newspaper.

Perdue’s new feed loading system transports grain from railcars into silos. Copeland told the Reporter that the facility gets a rail shipment of grain every 10 days and that the recently installed system should help lower the foul odor. 

The company announced plans to invest $42 million to install a third cooking line at its Perry, GA production plant in April 2018. Perdue said the expansion will help it to meet the growing demand for no-antibiotics-ever and organic products.
