Warmer Temperatures:

The temperature has been predicted to go up in the coming months. We have been fortunate these past months with cooler temperatures. Related to storing feed and keeping it insect free. We are doing everything we can to reduce the life cycle in a natural way. Three things to consider doing to keep the grain free.

  1. Keep in a cool dry place.
  2. Use a container with some air movement.
  3. Don’t put the feed in your house, trunk of your car or in your car. Do your best to keep
    the feed at just below 72 degrees. The colder and drier the better for the feed.

Online Ordering:

We are always looking for ideas on how to improve the site. Our focus has been making the process easy. So when you think about ordering feed, it’s not a hassle. If we are not doing something you think we should be doing. Please reach out to us. We are going to listen and make the changes. Do you have any ideas for us?

Small Bags:

Many of you have asked about putting some of the current mixes in 5 – 10-pound bags. Ron is headed to Las Vegas this week to investigate equipment we could purchase to effectively do this to reduce the cost and pass the savings to our customers.

If you could have anything in a smaller bag?
