New business locating in Garrard County

An animal feed company plans to open a distribution center and retail location in Garrard County.

Performance Feeds and Animal Health plans to hire seven to 10 people for the site and expand to 20 employees in the next two years, according to Garrard County economic development director Nathan Mick.

The Tennessee-headquartered company will locate in a building that was built in the Lancaster/Garrard County Industrial Park in 1997 but has not been used.
