Matthews Feed and Grain, Ind., has announced two separate agreements concerning both the supply and demand of feed. BASF Plant Science and Matthews announced Dec. 4 that they signed an agreement allowing Matthews to contract for NutriDense grain, and Matthews separately agreed with JBS United to provide feed containing NutriDense corn to the JBS-operated Signature Farms.
"We see this as a win-win situation," says Brantt Huston, Feed Operations Manager, Matthews Feed and Grain. "With NutriDense the producer gets a premium, increasing revenue, and pigs get more nutritionally enhanced feed."
Customers of Matthews Feed and Grain who contract with them will bring NutriDense grain to the mill for a $0.25 premium vs. yellow dent corn under the new agreement. Matthews will then use the corn in feed rations for JBS United swine.
