"1 *' J£XrJ The ALGONA RENDERING CO. plant in Algona' is one that the average town citizen may not know too much about. But to the farmers in the area it is an important and well known institution. Al Rode is manager of he ALGONA RENDERING CO. plant in Algona, and local phone number is now CYpress 4-2526. The plant is located just east of the Des'Moines river bridge on highway 169, south of Algona. •Ta Pictured above are two of the trucks that are available for immediate service when there is need of such. Hot weather, such as we have had this summer, is an especially dangerous time so far as farm livestock is concerned, and the ALGONA RENDERING CO. gives the fastest possible service for dead animal removal. *i~- ' • ""•"— • •• •• • •• •> • ~. P ..., -....,. In 1955 the local plant was made as modern as any in this section of the country when new condensers were installed, making possible greater removal of offensive odors. At the same time the trucking units were brought up to date. A new skinning floor was also built, and the cookers were rebuilt and speeded up, to hasten the processing of raw materials. Three products are produced by the rendering company; inedible grease which is sold to soap manufacturers and others; tankage or meat scrap which is sold to feed companies and farmers; hides and skins, which are shipped to tanners for conversion into various types of leather products. The company has regular planned daily routes, and farmers who need stock removal are asked to call the plant immediately so that pickup can be made on the regular planned routes whenever possible.
