We are currently looking to fill the need for contract pig growers within a 50-mile radius of our Archbold Ohio feed mill. Our target goal is new construction, wean to finish type operations. These contracts would be for GGC Feeds LLC or other swine operations looking to locate finishing barns near the new Coldwater packing plant. The hog packing plant started operations in the Spring of 2018. The investment in this type of operations is substantial so why should I consider it?
