BUILT FOR CAPACITY, EXPANSION
The mill operations are controlled by a Beta Raven
automation control system.
The Spruce Pine feed mill manufactures three broiler
and six breeder formulations. The company contracts
its nutrition program with Devenish Nutrition Services,
working closely with two nutrition consultants, Dr. Paul
Twining and Dr. Mike Blair.

Inside the mill
The grinding system is housed in a separate concrete
grinding building, featuring one 70-ton/hour Roskamp
Champion HM44-56 hammermill, with space for the addition of a second hammermill. Processed grains are then
conveyed to the ground and coarse grain ingredient bins.
The batching and mixing system utilizes two 6-ton
major scales, a minor scale and a 20-bin Beta Raven
micro system with dual scales, feeding into a Hayes &
Stolz 12-ton mixer.
The mix is then either doled out to the mash feeder
from the grader bins or moved to the pelleting tower,
which features a CPM 9042 90-ton/hour pellet mill and,
again, room for a second line in the future. Pellets are
cooled in a Bliss 20-798-6A counterflow cooler before
receiving a final fat coat in the APEC system housed in
the mill headhouse.

After leaving the Hayes & Stolz 12-ton mixer, the
mix moves to the mash feeder or to the pelleting
tower. Jackie Roembke
The mill features two finished feed loadout driveways with
4,400 tons of finished feed storage, held in 30 loadout bins.
"With the finished feed storage, it came down to do we
put in one bay or two bays, and by putting in two bays, we
have a large amount of bay feed storage," Potter adds. "We
have almost three days' worth of feed in storage at any
given time, but as we go up in tonnage, then we'll need
that storage unit."
The mill loads roughly 50 feed trucks per day, 240 per
week. It staffs an additional 10 full-time drivers, driving
its eight-truck fleet.
Thirteen employees work in the Spruce Pine feed mill.
It runs two shifts, five days of the week, and produces
around 6,500 tons/week.

Opportunity to expand

The Spruce Pine feed mill utilizes a 90-ton/hour
CPM pelleting line with a Bliss counterflow cooler.
The pellet mill is rated at 10,000 tons/week, but
with room for a second line, the mill can double its
capacity in the future. Jackie Roembke

Given its positive experience getting the Spruce Pine feed
mill off the ground, Mar-Jac constructed a new hatchery
a half-mile from the mill, which also began operation
in 2018. The new state-of-the-art, fully automated, $23
million hatchery hatches 1.8 million chicks a week, using
single-stage incubation and with the integration of energyconserving technologies.
"The feed mill is the centerpiece of Mar-Jac's presence
