ANIMAL FEED, IT’S YOUR MOST IMPORTANT DECISION.

Your decision about your feed supplier is arguably the most critical decision you will make regarding your animals. It’s the one factor that is certain to affect how an animal appears and ultimately thrives.

Quality feed is what Ranch-Way Feeds has been creating for decades in Fort Collins, Colorado--land of 300 days of sunshine, high mountains and the untamed Cache la Poudre River. Naturally, a clean-scrubbed Rocky Mountain town like Fort Collins would be the place where Ranch-Way Feeds products are manufactured. In the process, we have become the leading regional feed supplier throughout the Rocky Mountain region.

Today, we manufacture a full-line of nutritional products for a wide range of livestock, domestic, wild, and zoo animals. Quality ingredients lead to quality products. Ranch-Way Feeds utilizes ingredients that exceed industry quality standards to produce truly exceptional feeds. Quality products, customer service, and regional presence are the core of Ranch-Way Feeds. We are committed to maintaining this position as a leader in the animal feed industry for the

Rocky Mountain region.
We have a full-time PhD Animal Nutritionist on staff and a Professional Animal Scientist-Certified Technical Services department able to consult, design custom diets, and formulate rations for all classes of commercial livestock, horses, farm animals, show livestock, and avian species.

OUR TOP PRIORITY - QUALITY AND SAFETY

We formulate and manufacture feed according to research-based National Research Council (NRC) guidelines to meet the nutritional requirements of each species. It is Ranch-Way’s goal to manufacture every feed order quickly and efficiently, while providing customers with a product that is safe, clean, consistent in appearance, and carefully formulated and manufactured.

Quality control is the job of everyone involved in designing, manufacturing, packaging, and delivering Ranch-Way Feeds. Feed safety is a primary concern. We have a hard-earned Facility Certification Institute* (FCI) certification and are Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points** (HACCP)-enrolled. Throughout our modernized plant, state-of-the-art manufacturing and packaging processes are in place. Comco controls are used to monitor the automated batching, pelleting, and packaging systems in the feed mill to comply with feed-safety procedures.

*The Facility Certification Institute (FCI) is an internationally respected and recognized third party certification provider. FCI was created by the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) to provide non-biased, third party certification programs and ensure the continued safety of feed and food products.

**The Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) is an FDA management system in which food safety is addressed through the analysis and control of biological, chemical, and physical hazards from raw material production, procurement, and handling, to manufacturing, distribution, and consumption of the finished product.

Ranch-Way's “Easy Feed" is a certified organic and GMO free feed manufactured locally, right here in Fort Collins, Colorado. Only the highest certification would do from the USDA and its National Organic Program (NOP) and by the State of Colorado’s Department of Agriculture. There is something for everyone in the Easy Feed line including cattle, horse, swine, goats, chicken and turkey feed as well as an all-stock feed. Also available is an organic all-stock mineral for livestock on forage-based diets. And now there’s poultry feed in pellets or crumbles!

We take our Organic feed quality measures very seriously! The certified organic feed ingredients and all feed mill processes are inspected annually by the Colorado Department of Agriculture to verify organic authenticity to our customers. Further, we have voluntarily trained in the US government’s HACCP (Hazard Analysis of Critical Control Points) methodology, and brought it back to the feed mill. HACCP is meant for the prevention of contamination in processing food for humans, but we have adapted it purposefully for keeping our animal feed production as safe as it can possibly be.
