Australian flour mills: Messrs W Webb & Co’s New Roller Flour Mill, Sandhurst, Victoria

by Mildred Cookson, The Mills Archive, UK

There were few mills in Australia better known than the one described in The Miller of November 5th, 1888. It was situated in the main street and close to the shaft of the numerous gold mines in Sandhurst, so making it an object of interest to the numerous visitors to this "Golden City of Victoria".

Few could visit Sandhurst without noticing the fine building. The layout of the mill, as seen in the illustrations, gives some idea of the arrangement of the machinery inside the mill; the engraving of the exterior, which was done from a photograph, shows the appearance of the building from the outside, although this apparently did not do full justice to the mill.
 


Mr W Webb built his mill in 1873, when no expense was spared to get "the most model stone mill" that could possibly be obtained. The stones and hursting frames came complete from Messrs Bryan Corcoran of Mark Lane, London, and ample dressing and purifying machinery was also added, fitting up the mill throughout in a style worthy of so fine a building.

The mill had always been known for the excellent quality of flour it supplied, the finest wheats obtainable being used. Although the district around Sandhurst was not considered the best for wheat growing, its situation was so central that almost every class of wheat grown in Australia could be procured there.

The flour from the mill enjoyed such a high reputation that Mr Webb was one of the last millers of note to feel the competition of the roller flour mills and to see the necessity for adopting the roller system.

After inspecting roller mills already erected in Australia by Messrs Thomas Robinson of the Railway Works, Rochdale, Mr Webb decided to place an order for the firm to put their most complete system of machinery into his mill. The mill was started up in May 1887 with the most satisfactory results.

AFIA supports progress in USA China trade deal

The American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) has released a statement commending and congratulating the US administration on the signing of a historic phase one trade agreement with China.

The US animal food manufacturing industry faces a number of challenges in this market, including those which have restricted any new US feed additive and premix products to be exported to China since 2011 and those which restrict US feed products with ruminant-origin ingredients and a number of poultry-derived ingredients.

This agreement directly addresses these constraints by streamlining and facilitating a facility registration process for feed additives, premixes and compound feed, as well as lifting the poultry and ruminant ban for animal food products. AFIA looks forward to working with industry and the appropriate US government agencies to facilitate implementation.

AFIA's president and CEO Constance Cullman stated the following, 'Addressing the non-tariff barriers that challenge our industry in the Chinese market has been a top priority for AFIA for nearly a decade. I am very excited about what this agreement means for the US animal food industry and reopening the Chinese market for our products. I'm grateful for the hard work and enduring efforts of our trade negotiators on our behalf and the administration as a whole for defending the enhancement of productive trading relationships and supporting US businesses and exports.'

AFIA's Chairman Tim Belstra commented, 'Representing AFIA and its members today at this historic signing was a stark reminder of the importance of trade and opening markets for our industry. I am elated by what this agreement represents for our industry and the many exports it will facilitate as a result. This is indeed a landmark opportunity not only for the US animal food industry, but also for the livestock and poultry industries in China to further expand their feed ingredient inputs and technology.'
