From the Feed Mill - April 2018

Greetings from the Feed Department!

Although the chilly weather seems to have hung on longer into springtime than we would’ve liked this year, I am thankful that warmer days are surely ahead. It is always fun to see the little calves and lambs bouncing along next to their mothers in the pastures this time of year. Many of you likely have kids already beginning to prepare young animals for the 4H show ring come county fair time. Be sure to let us know if we can help you out with giving them a great start.  We offer a wide variety of feeds and can also special order show feeds upon request. Call or stop in to discuss your needs, and bring the kids along… We’re always happy to help the next generation succeed in the world of agriculture.

In a small community, we often assume everyone knows what everyone else is doing (and sometimes it feels like this is true!) However, I wanted to share a brief rundown of all the services we offer here at the EET feed mill, both for those of you who have been our patrons for many years, and for those who are new to working with us. We provide feed for most all of the livestock common to our area: beef cattle, dairy cattle, swine, goats, sheep, horses, rabbits and poultry. Delivery options include bulk and bagged feed, as well as direct drop. We offer starter, grower and finisher feeds, creep feed, show feed, milk replacer, liquid feed, lick tubs, mineral and salt blocks, pet food and bird feed. We work with a variety of distributors to be able to offer a range of products and competitive pricing. All of this seems to keep us pretty busy around here! However, we wouldn’t have it any other way. We’re thankful and proud to have our home town cooperative serve our local community.

Keep in mind that May is beef month and June is dairy month. We want to thank the beef and dairy producers for getting up early and staying up late to help birth those babies and milk those cows, among the many other duties they perform to care for their herds. Personally, I don’t think there are many things better than a good steak or a cold chocolate milk!

Thank you for partnering with EET to sustain and grow your business. I wish you a successful spring season!

Kind regards,

From the Feed Mill - April 2017

Greetings from the Feed Department!

If you’re like me, springtime and warmer temps in our region are a welcome change. The longer days and warm sunshine bring the hope of a new growing season for crop farmers and livestock producers alike. By the time you receive this newsletter, many of you will have a couple months of calving and lambing under your belts, and are busy giving your young livestock a good start. Keep us in mind for your milk replacer, starter and creep feed needs. We work with a variety of distributors to be able to offer you a range of products and competitive pricing.

Before we know it, county fairs will be underway, and many of you have kids that are preparing 4-H animals for show already. With that in mind, I wanted to mention the different feeds we can offer, including rabbit pellets, chicken grower, lamb starters, and more! We can also special order show feeds upon request. Please be sure to call or stop in to discuss your needs, and include the kids in the process. We’re always happy to help the next generation succeed in the world of agriculture.

On that note, I have had the opportunity to attend many trainings over the past year, many regarding human relations within the agricultural world, among other topics. It is encouraging to be part of a dynamic industry in which we can help one another continue to learn and grow.

I want to thank our patrons for doing their part in helping us implement the Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) requirements. As it is with anything new, there was some uncertainty and questions last year as we approached this change, but overall it has been a smooth transition. We understand there still may be questions moving forward; please don’t hesitate to contact us or your veterinarian with any concerns you may have.

Thank you for partnering with EET to sustain and grow your business. I wish you a happy Easter and a successful spring season!

Kind regards,

From the Feed Mill - December 2016

Greetings from the Feed Department!

Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace, goodwill to all people! Here is to hoping we find you warm and cozy for the start of our Minnesota winter.

With the New Year will come new requirements for the VFD (veterinary feed directive) feeds. Remember to check with your veterinarian if you have the potential need for a medicated feed. If you have any questions about the VFD’s or what medications are required to have a VFD, contact your veterinarian or be in touch with Darian, Grant or Maverick in the feed department. 

As of September 17, 2017, we will be under new rules and regulations for our feed division. This will entail more book keeping as well as creating diagrams for our feed mill set up and showing how the product gets from point A to point B safely. This will be a complete team effort, and we are confident that we will be well prepared for our September deadline.

I would like to tell you about a quality dog food we carry... NutriSource chicken and rice formula provides premium nutrition in an easy-to–digest food. Real chicken is the first ingredient, which is a source of high quality protein to help maintain muscle mass and strength. The available nutrients in chicken and rice result in less waste. With our promotional card, when you purchase 12 bags, the 13th bag is free!

I want to give a special ‘thank you’ to the all the employees who help in the feed department for their hard work and dedication during the busy harvest season. Things can be hectic at times, but we have a great crew that gets the job done.

As the holidays are upon us, please be conscientious about ordering feed in a timely manner, and take note that we are closed Monday the 26th as well as Monday, January 2nd. I would like to thank all the loyal customers for your business and wish you a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year.

Kind regards,
