  5. Colbinabbin Mill Expansion Underway

The love has been lost in recent times on Reid Stockfeed’s formative Colbinabbin site and it’s time to give the golden girl a make-over. The Colbo site churned out it’s first deliveries way back in 1984 consisting of little more than a silo, auger, roller-mill and five-tonne truck. This of course makes the old girl 30-year’s young but more on that in February’s newsletter.

1994 - Colbo Mill prior to outloading facility.

Early Days. Colbo Mill prior to outloading facility. Circa 1994.

It’s fair to say the winds of change have blown through there since those formative days but her last major, structural upgrade was 2002 with further out-loading facilities constructed.

New outloading bins installed. 2004.

With the mill now struggling under increased work pressure and inefficiencies the decision has been made to roll out a series of improvements that will;

  • Increase the storage capacity and conveyance of raw materials into the mill
  • Computerisation of the micro ingredient batching
  • Additional raw ingredient bins and weigh scales doubling the mills throughput
  • Second production line into mill
  • Increased outloading facilities

These improvements will allow the Colbinabbin mill to further increase and improve the consistency of its high quality, mash stockfeeds. Furthermore the turnaround time’s for deliveries will be reduced and cost savings that this generates passed onto the customer in the form of more stable pricing.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
