Feedmill and Dehulling Plant
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 2000 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.
Mort & Co was thrilled with the results and has experienced higher productivity compared to industry benchmarks.
‘Grasssdale is the largest greenfield feedlot constructed in recent years and Ahrens readily accepted the challenge to build it with outstanding results.’ Charlie Mort, Mort & Co
