NOBLE TOWNSHIP, MI (WTVB) - A new poultry operation is on its way to Branch County.  Miller Amish Country Poultry has filed an application to build a broiler facility for over a quarter-million chickens on 90 acres of land in Noble Township near the Michigan-Indiana state line.  The initial building investment is projected around $1.7-million and could go as high as $4.4-million.  Miller has a chicken processing plant less than six miles from the site south of Orland,Iindiana.  Mark Tilbury – Live Production Manager for the company – says “having the plant close by will help with animal welfare certification.” 

The company will also build a structure to hold manure produced by over 252,000 chickens.  Tilbury says three farmers have signed letters of intent to take the compost for use on their fields.
