The design and construction of this impressive large-scale feedlot entailed a steam-flaking plant, bulk-grain storage facility and an additional six buildings. The facility’s primary on-site storage consists of three 650-tonne grain silos and a 2,000-tonne silo, both manufactured and supplied by Ahrens Agri.
A key feature of the feedlot is its fully-automated milling capability. It has three 24” x 56” flaking mills which produce 90 tonnes per hour of steam-cooked grain which caters for 62,000 head of cattle. Six liquid tanks and auto-batching complete with twin batch boxes
for truck loading are also a feature of this mill.
Mort & Co was thrilled with the results and has experienced higher productivity compared to industry benchmarks.
