Strong Roots: Promoting Sustainable Agriculture

University of Illinois Feed Processing Facility and Service Unit: ADM will provide $1.5 million to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign over the next three years to develop a facility to investigate and determine the feed value of new ingredients produced for commercial livestock. Those ingredients include new products ADM will manufacture from our wet and dry corn milling and oilseeds processing facilities.

The university’s department of Animal Sciences is considered one of the top such departments in the U.S., and ADM’s grant, coupled with UIUC’s own fundraising efforts, will enable the construction of a feed mill and related research facilities.

Economic Development Corporation of Decatur & Macon County: ADM will provide $1.25 million over five years to support efforts to develop the Midwest Inland Port in Decatur, a multi-modal freight facility that offers access to three Class 1 railroads, five major roadways, an airport capable of handling widebody aircraft and ADM’s intermodal ramp, which—with two high-capacity cranes that can handle 50,000 containers per year—offers exceptional access to global markets for businesses and a unique platform for economic growth in central Illinois, home to ADM’s North American headquarters.
