May is Beef Month and June is Dairy Month. Being that dairy and beef are the number one and two largest portions of our total feed business I thought it might be appropriate to highlight some of the things that make All American Co-op different than other Dairy and Beef feed suppliers.
People come first. We understand that your operation is your way of life. We work extremely hard to hire the best people we can to be able to help you in every encounter you have with our staff. Our nutrition staff is highly trained with many years of experience in their area of expertise. No matter if you are a robot dairy, parlor dairy, custom forage harvester, calf or heifer raiser, commercial feedlot, cow calf herd or a hobby operation we have the experience and expertise to help you meet your goals and be successful. Our delivery staff understands that when they deliver feed they are entering your family’s home and we need to be helpful and respectful to your employees and family. Our customer service group understands that you are busy and you need your feed and supplies to arrive correctly every time. We take the time to understand your ordering habits and offer many options to best fit your needs. We also believe that there is value in being involved in the local communities we live, work and conduct business in. We are proud to support and many producer groups, breed associations and community groups. We especially find it valuable to support and be involved with youth groups that are providing opportunities and experience to the next generation. This concept is where our student scholarship program originated. After all, the youth in rural America is our future customers and/or employees.
Options and flexibility. We know that your operation is not the same as anyone else’s and that is why we do so much more than most other feed suppliers. We are your local source for pellets. We have the equipment and people to make pellets right here in Stewartville. Weather it is a custom pellet that no other feed suppliers can get you or a stock product we can normally get it to you with less lead time and at a better price. All American Co-op is also your local source for roasted soybeans. Roasting soybeans allows us to supply our customers with another by-pass protein that other suppliers don’t have. Roasting soybeans also gives our customers a way to feed the soybeans they produce on their own farm to reduce out of pocket cost and increase the value of their soy bean crop. We are proud to offer delivery of bags and bulk feed throughout our entire trade area. From full truckloads of bulk feeds to smaller quantities of bagged feed we have many different delivery options to fit the needs of all producers. We also offer endless options for liquid feed supplements. From feedlot, to cow calf, to traditional dairy and most recently liquid supplementation in robotic milkers we have you covered with the products, experience and equipment to make liquid feeding successful.
Feed safety and technology. All American Co-op is proud to be Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) certified for over 4 years. HACCP is a 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. We undergo third party audits annually to ensure that our system is meeting the standards of this third party certification. We also work closely with Purina Animal Nutrition and many other ingredient suppliers to bring our customers the latest technology to help our customers meet their goals. All the technology and products we bring to our customers are tested and proven to be effective. Unlike some of the “magic ingredients” that other feed supplies offer with no research to support their claims.
For 109 years, All American Co-op has focused on providing reliable, continuous service. In order to provide quality products and services that fit our producers’ goals, we strive to know each of our members and customers on a personal level. Combining that focus with a dedicated, hard-working staff has contributed to the growth of All American Co-op. From humble beginnings as a local market to a progressive cooperative serving southeastern Minnesota. We are proud to be able to continue to provide production Ag services for farmers in SE Minnesota and Northern Iowa.
