Feed Mill Modifications Fiscal Year 2018

Feed Mill

Effective September 1, 2017

The sale of baby chicks will no longer be offered at the Weyauwega Feed Mill. They are still available to order and pick-up at the New London Farm Store  (1104 Mulligan Dr., New London, WI).

We will be phasing out the tying of poly bags. All bagged feed will be sewn shut in bags effective September 1, 2017. This will allow us to attach a paper label to each bag helping us to adhere to FDA regulations for labeling of feed. Both Poly and Paper bags will still be available. One ton poly totes are also available; however, they are not returnable, and are designed for one time use.

We will also be enacting a 1 ton minimum order on all custom mixed feeds bagged or bulk. If you cannot utilize a whole ton of feed at one time, we encourage you to consider our expanded CHS Larsen branded floor stock line-up. The bulk of our custom mixed feeds are very close in analysis to our floor stock feeds, consolidating these mixes helps us streamline our process. If you need help selecting the appropriate floor stock item for your application, please feel free to contact Ben or Dustin.

If you currently use grain bank in orders less than one ton, we encourage you to market your grain in exchange for the grain in our floor stock items. The costs of our floor stock items follow grain markets, and will be comparable to selling the grain outright.

We will be expanding our floor stock line up to include:

  • Sheep feed
  • Poultry
  • Pig feed
  • Calf feed
  • All Purpose 17% Non-Medicated, Texturized feed
  • Minerals
  • Grain Products

Consolidating our lineup will result in labor efficiencies, regulatory compliance in labeling, and optimized warehouse space, all things that will allow us to lower our price point on our floor stock lineup.

We will be reinforcing a time frame on ordering. Any orders that are needed same day will need to be placed on our answering service by 8 a.m. of that business day, this includes pickups of floor stock items, as well as delivery of bagged or bulk feeds. If we do not have an order for you, we cannot guarantee that we will have items in stock, or the ability of delivery. In emergencies we will provide same day delivery, but are asking for your cooperation to help us adhere to FDA regulations regarding sequencing of feed.
