The agriculture industry in the North Okanagan got a boost with the official ground-breaking of a new feed mill.
Livestock and poultry producers in the North Okanagan will soon have a local option for animal feed.
“The OVF (Okanagan Valley Feed) mill will be able to support not five, not 50, not even 500 or 5,000 cows, but 15,000 off of this little five acres. Plus all the other animals: chickens, horses, hogs, sheep, turkeys, and even chinchillas,” Jon Couch, CEO of Okanagan Valley Feed, told a crowd of over 100 people during the groundbreaking ceremony.
As the price of putting food on the table continues to climb, some local farmers have dug up a way to churn out support from field to farm to family.
Okanagan Valley Feeds (OVF) broke ground on a new, state-of-the-art feed mill in Spallumcheen on June 16. A mill to this standard hasn’t been built for 50 years.
The township successfully applied to the Agricultural Land Commission to allow Okanagan Valley Feeds Ltd. (OVF) to build and operate a feed mill on agricultural land along Hwy 97A. The application also included adding 1,500 square metres of gravel fill on about 1.2 hectares and subdividing the 34.3 hectare property into a 2.5-hectare lot for the feed mill and a 31.8-hectare remainder lot.
Already known as an area where ‘farming comes first,’ the Township of Spallumcheen wants to enhance opportunities for North Okanagan farmers in a township hub while providing opportunities for economic development.
The area has already attracted one North Okanagan agri-industry. Okanagan Valley Feeds in Vernon plans to break ground on a new feed mill in the township this spring.
