LAND O'LAKES ACQUIRES HAWAIIAN FEED COMPANY

 SEATTLE, Wash., Nov. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Land O'Lakes has acquired the Hawaii-based Waldron Feed Co. and will continue to serve island customers through mills operated by its Western Feed division in Oregon following closure of the Waldron mill in Honolulu.
 Land O'Lakes estimates the annual feed volume to be about 56,000 tons and will include bulk poultry and swine feed. Sack feeds, under the Hawaiian Grain label, will be sold to dealers throughout the Hawaiian Islands, Guam, Samoa, Ponape, Saipan and Micronesia.
 Don Hoggarth, Western Division vice president, said, "Waldron is an old and respected name in the feed business and we feel good about this acquisition and the opportunity it provides us to achieve a higher level of efficiency and productivity at our Portland mills, and significantly expand our distribution area."
 Both Waldron and Land O'Lakes brand feeds will be available to customers in Hawaii and a number of former Waldron employees have joined Land O'Lakes and will continue to provide a wide range of producer services.
 Land O'Lakes is a Minnesota-based food and agricultural cooperative owned by farmers, ranchers and local cooperatives in 15 states. It provides agricultural supplies to 1,600 local cooperatives serving 300,000 farmers and procures milk from more than 5,000 Upper Midwest dairy producers.
