A joint venture between Landus and AMVC is building a new feed mill near Hamlin, Iowa, in the US. The slipform method was used to pour the concrete for the mill’s structures. The mill is planned to be completely operational in the summer of 2024.
The 145-foot mill was built over the course of eight days, rising 20 feet each day. Throughout the winter, the roof is anticipated to be poured. After that, the project will move on to the next stage of construction. Milling, mixing, and storage facilities will be added. The construction began in August.

Up to 400,000 tonnes of swine feed will be produced by the feed mill yearly. Additionally, this will create a demand for about 8.5 million bushels of maize and 48,000 tonnes of soybean meal. After the project is finished, the mill will add 22 new employees. These will include 14 local truck drivers and 8 full-time mill employees.
“We are eager to see this project completed since it will benefit Audubon County and the surrounding counties.” According to Steve Schmitz, a veterinarian and managing partner of AMVC Management Services, “the Hamlin feed mill gives AMVC and our clients more control over ingredient sourcing, quality assurance, and biosecurity and offers a new market for local crop growers.”
Commentary on the AMVC, Landus Iowa feed mill
“This investment in our nutritional program enables us to better support regional swine enterprises and will result in cost savings and performance gains for local pigs. The mill has been drafted and designed for more than a year by AMVC, Landus, and project partners Empire Ag, KC Engineering, and Agriculture Solutions International. Seeing those initiatives come to fruition is amazing, according to Trey Kellner, swine nutritionist and managing partner of AMVC Nutritional Services.
According to Matt Carstens, president, and chief executive officer of Landus, “Our collaboration with AMVC illustrates what’s possible when partners work together with an optimal approach to servicing our local communities.”
