OWOSSO, Mich. (AP) — Agribusiness giant Cargill Inc. is moving forward on plans for a new $19 million animal feed plant in Michigan.

The Argus-Press of Owosso reports a groundbreaking took place last week on the project in the site in the Shiawassee County community of Owosso. The 75,000-square-foot custom feed manufacturing facility is expected to prompt hiring of eight employees to start.

The Michigan Strategic Fund earlier this year approved a nearly $2.8 million tax capture for the City of Owosso Brownfield Redevelopment Authority to make infrastructure improvements, including a new public roadway and a new water main service line.
