The University awarded a contract for Feed Ingredients to ADM Animal Nutrition, Quincy, IL, for an estimated $1,125,000.
U of I Animal Sciences Feed Mill provides custom and bulk rations for research and herds diets for 8 Animal Science, Veterinary Medicine, Edward Madigan Laboratory research and teaching units. Then, the unit, operating with 2 FTE staff, produces approximately 50 orders per week (60 tons per week). These ingredients are stored, formulated, and mixed at the Feed Mill and delivered to the units. The Feed Mill produces specific rations for several agricultural species that include: Beef and Dairy cattle, swine, poultry, horse, and sheep. The requested supplies are all routinely added ingredients to build these specific rations/diets. The volume estimates are based on previous use.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the items are required for research and no other source is able to meet the researcher's documented needs.
