Mill operation and costs vary so widely that it is possible, in this section, to give you only a limited amount of information which is intended for rough approximations. Plant location, local labor conditions, distance from sources of supply and markets are all factors which must be taken into account in predicting and establishing milling costs.

General information presented in this and the foregoing sections represents a composite of many actual operations. We hope it will be able to serve you by furnishing a basis for rough estimates so essential for planning long-range profitable milling.
