Government-approved Livestock Export Hub Opens in Central Ohio

SABINA, Ohio - Exportation and transportation of livestock is vital in today’s world. On October 1, 2011, Feed the World, LLC (FTW) opened its doors as an Export Inspection Facility and has since received government approval for Export Processing. FTW provides necessary holding, rest, quarantine and inspection for cattle, small ruminants, swine and other animals during their eastbound or westbound journey in a modern, well-ventilated facility.

FTW is a service of Premier Solutions, an Ohio-based agribusiness.

Feed The World livestock export facilities is a well equipped holding and inspection site for livestock leaving the country. Once the livestock are inspected and all export requirements are met, they are loaded for transport to destinations all over the world, by air and by sea. Animals can be exported through the Wilmington Air Park located in Wilmington, Ohio. The location of FTW is ideal for air transport and is a day’s drive from the East Coast. In addition to 4.5 acres under roof, FTW also offers open-air hoop buildings and pasture for quarantine purposes throughout the state. From FTW facilities, up to four plane loads of livestock may be transported at once. FTW also provides the air shipping containers which are also built at the facility in Sabina.

“The Wilmington Air Park is an excellent alternative to JFK and O’Hara with less congestion and expense, the air fields are only ten miles away from FTW. It is considerably less stress on the animals,” said Larry Baker, who has numerous responsibilities with Livestock Export Association of the USA. “FTW can provide USDA Inspected Isolation for foreign countries where the protocol requires isolation during testing. I can answer questions about this at 937-541-7461 or bakerlivestock@earthlink.net.”

The facility is disinfected and dried between livestock shipments for bio-security purposes.
