THE GALT FEED MILL WILL NOT BE RECEIVING CORN UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
NO CORN DELIVERIES TO HAWKEYE THE WEEK OF JANUARY 17, 2022
The storm on December 15th caused much destruction to acreages, homes, and hog and chicken barn sites in our area. Gold-Eagle Coop did sustain some damage at our Galt Mill site as well. Thankfully no one was hurt and bins can be replaced. We have been in contact with our insurance company and contractors to assess and rebuild. Our thoughts go out to the other people and businesses also affected by this devastating storm.
