Strategic Alliance Provides Dairy Facility Planning Resource to ADM Alliance Nutrition Clients Through Five-G Consulting

Whether it be remodeling existing dairy facilities or building a new operation, expanding one's dairy business is one of the biggest investments a dairyman will make. Attention to detail and proper planning are prerequisites for building the most cost effective facility. One must consider not only their current needs but anticipated future needs as well.

ADM Animal Nutrition is proud to announce that we have a resource partner in Five-G Consulting to provide dairy facility & design planning and expertise for our dairy clients.. Five-G Consulting was founded in the 1960's for the purpose of providing custom design and engineering services for the dairy and commercial heifer industries. The objective of their service is to provide a cost effective "total systems" approach to planning modern, state-of-the-art facilities and to the upgrading of existing facilities.

The design staff at Five-G has worked on dairy projects ranging in size from under 100 cows to 12,000 cows. They have built dairies in climates as diverse as the Arabian desert to the Alaskan Tundra.

Long term trends in the dairy industry have shown steady growth in the size of dairy enterprises. At the same time dairy sanitation requirements, herd health needs and pollution control regulations have become more stringent. These factors, plus the ever increasing cost of building construction and equipment, emphasize the need for careful up front, long range planning. Sound planning is important for the construction of new facilities, as well as remodeling, expansion and modernization of existing dairies. Sound, long-range planning is just as essential for the small dairy as the large, if it is expected to meet the challenges of the future, and be profitable.

The Five-G Consulting principals have focused on these specific areas of concern to the dairymen. Five-G also provides Dairy Expansion Seminars across the United States on an annual basis for which ADM Animal Nutrition is a principal partner.

ADM Animal Nutrition is pleased to utilize the resources and expertise provided by Five-G Consulting for our dairy clients.
