Sheldon, Iowa — The ribbon was cut Wednesday morning on the recently-completed 140-foot pellet mill tower at Ag Partners in Sheldon. The tower, which is located adjacent to Business 60 in Sheldon, is expected to increase total capacity of the facility to approximately 600-thousand tons of meal feed annually, and 300-thousand tons of pellets each year.
At Wednesday’s ribbon cutting, Sheldon Mayor Tricia Meendering talked about being “in awe” as she watched the tower take shape.
Sheldon Chamber Director Allison Cooke presented Ag Processing personnel with a keepsake plaque from the ribbon cutting.
Ag Partners’ Scott Lovin says they’re excited about the project, and hope to begin production next week.
The new tower cost more than $7-million to construct, and features one 60-ton per hour pellet line and a six ton mixer, with the ability to add a second 60-ton per hour line as business growth warrants.
