Cobb-Vantress Feed Mill

Joanna, SC

A design-build poultry breeder feed mill manufacturing facility, Cobb-Vantress features a 176-foot tall, state-of-the-art mill that was built using slipform method of concrete construction. The slipform pour, which took 8.5 days to complete, was self-performed by The Weitz Company with a staff of more than 50 employees who rotated shifts to reach the mill’s peak.

The design of the feed mill allows a processing capacity of 2,000 tons per week. Included in the design-build contract were additional project management activities to install equipment for grain storage, grinding, mixing, controls, pelleting and cooling as well as the construction of a precast warehouse, truck sanitation and sterilization building.
