Dalgety closing two feed mills

DALGETY Group is closing two of its compound feed mills as part of an industry-wide rationalisation.

The closures involves 120 redundancies and will leave Dalgety with 16 mills and without national coverage.

The group is shutting mills at Avonmouth and at Poole, Dorset. The business and the seven-strong sales force of the Poole mill will be taken over by SCATS, a farmer-owned agri-business group based in southern England.
