                           Monday, August 9, 1993

Pursuant to its authority under the Foreign-Trade Zones Act of June 18, 
1934, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u), the Foreign-Trade Zones Board (the 
Board) adopts the following Order:

Whereas, by an Act of Congress approved June 18, 1934, an Act "To provide
for the establishment  of foreign-trade zones in ports of entry of the 
United States, to expedite and encourage foreign commerce, and for other 
purposes," as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a-81u) (the Act), the Foreign-Trade
Zones Board (the Board) is authorized to grant to qualified corporations 
the privilege of establishing foreign -trade zones in or adjacent to U.S. 
Customs ports of entry;

Whereas, the Board's regulations (15 CFR Part 400) provide for the
establishment of special-purpose subzones when existing zone facilities
cannot serve the specific use involved;

Whereas, an application from the Greater Metropolitan Area Foreign Trade
Zone Commission, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone No. 119 for authority to
establish a special-purpose subzone for export activity at the animal feed
manufacturing plant of American Feeds & Livestock Company, Inc., in Howard
Lake, Minnesota, was filed by the Board on June 23, 1992, and notice
inviting public comment was given in the Federal Register (FTZ Docket
20-92, 57 FR 29277, 7-1-92); and,

Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the FTZ Act and
Board's regulations are satisfied, and that approval of the application for
export processing is in the public interest;

Now, Therefore, the Board hereby authorizes the establishment of a subzone
(Subzone 119C) at the American Feeds & Livestock Company, Inc., plant, in
Howard Lake, Minnesota, at the location described in the application,
subject to the FTZ Act and the Board's regulations, including 400.28, and
subject to the further requirement that all foreign-origin dairy products
admitted to the subzone shall be reexported.

Signed at Washington, DC, this 23rd day of July, 1993.
