"And now, as a result, we s are able to do our processing work in about half the time it took before", he adcted. One important, improvement, at least as far as local citizens are concerned, has been the installation of new condensers for the removal of offensive odors. In addition, the plant has installed a new skinning floor, has erected a new concrete truck ramp at the main building, and wha'f is' quite important, has rebuilt- and speeded up the cookers which process the raw materials. All of this has-been done over the past eight or ten months. , .' _____ • .,;•>',-.•:< For many years, farmers in Kossuih Countv and adjacent areas have been receiving dead-animarremoval service from the Algona Rendering Co. This* service, now improved by the replacement of three old. worn-out trucks with three new ones, converts material which is a detriment to the farmer and a threat to human health, into useful products. Three products are produced by the rendering company. Inedible grease which , is sold to soap manufacturers and others: Tankaqe, or meat scrape, sold to feed companies and farmers; Hides and skins, which are shipped to tanners for conversion into leather products. ' For J. W. Manor, local manager, this Fall is a sort of "anniversary", as well as signaling completion of the modernization program. It is the end of his tenth year with the parent company. Hd worked in the home office, Des Moines, for four years, then traveled for the company, and came to Algona in early 1954. Workmen at the rendering plant now are Joe Fosnaugh, plant foreman, H. B. Lamb, J. W. Walker, S. R. Walker, and Jack German. Drivers in this area are John Schimmel, Jr., Don Reimers, Carroll Reimers, Bob Wilson and Harry Blome. To emphasize the,scale on which the local firm works, the plant here services an area including Algona, Humboldt, West Bend, Irvington, Bode, Livermore, Esiherville, Cylinder, Lakota, Fenton and Sexton. To enable the farmer to get' the best, possible service, the Algona Rencfering Co. requests that they be called immediately when they are needed so that trucks can be dispatched on daily planned routes.
