Animal nutrition companies are growing in Iowa and Wisconsin
Across Alliant Energy’s Iowa and Wisconsin service area, a critical mass of companies are producing animal nutrition products especially concerned with the dietary needs and health of livestock and pets. These companies provide the science, innovation, technology and quality that feed animals fulfilling the growing global meat, milk and egg needs or for the 85 million U.S. families that are pet owners.
In addition, Iowa State University is constructing their $21.2 million Kent Corporation Feed Mill and Grain Science Complex in Ames, Iowa. This will give students valuable real-world experiences that will benefit their future employers in the production of animal feeds and the manufacturing of food products. The mill will have a capacity of approximately 20,000 tons of feed per year once it is completed in the summer of 2021.
