Dalgety sells last mill

DALGETY has sold its last remaining feed mill, at Peterborough, to BOCM Pauls for an undisclosed sum.

Pig and poultry producers in the trading area have been told business will continue as usual and all 20 staff have been retained.

BOCM Pauls managing director, Bill Mayne, said the acquisition represented a further step in the companys plans to grow its core animal feed business.

Despite the difficult market place, particularly in the pig industry, the move demonstrated the companys long term commitment to British agriculture, he added. &#42
