Clovis plant to ramp up by mid-January

CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - A company that makes animal supplements expects its new Curry County plant to be in full production by mid-January.

Alltech officials say they've begun limited production in the facility east of Clovis with seven employees.

The Kentucky-based company is producing its Yea-Saac Farm Pak, a supplement designed to increase milk production in dairy cattle.

An Alltech official, Deirdre Lyons, says the company chose to locate in Clovis because of the dairy operations in the area.

The facility also will serve as distribution center.

Alltech is building a 4,000-square-foot marketing and conference office on the site. Area sales manager Aaron DeHaan says the facility will be complete by January.
