The University awarded a contract for ISU farm feed grinding/mixing to Fisher Produce, Fisher, IL, for
an estimated $40,000
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
University farm custom feeds some of their market hogs at a remote farmers operation. Feed needs to be ground, mixed, and delivered to that particular farm. There are very few grind and mix operations available to provide this service and commodity. Distance from the University farm is too far for farm staff to economically provide this service. The current vendor has given the University excellent service for the last few years. All commodity pricing is directly related to the market cost for the related product.
