December 30, 2016 – Modesto, CA
Modesto Milling serves a very diverse customer base. Some of our customers have large, commercial ag businesses. Others have varying sizes of family ranches and farms. Yet others are backyard or urban poultry or small animal owners.
Previous posts have talked about availability of palletized feed orders and totes for large-scale breeding and farming operations, but this one is more focused on the needs of smaller-scale owners.
We have had many requests for smaller quantities of feed for people with small flocks, individual birds and rabbits as well as people who want to try Modesto Milling feed without investing in a 25 or 50 pound bag. We have listened and are now producing Scratch (#732), Chick Starter (#702), Soy-Free Chick Starter (#712), Corn & Soy-Free Chick Starter (#722) and Rabbit Feed (#682) in 10 pound quantities.
This new offering is well suited for shipping, people lacking in storage space or others concerned about not being able to go through larger quantities of feed in a 90-day period. Timing of the release of the new starter product sizes will also nicely coincide with chick season, which is coming up in February and March.
The new packaging is designed to resist bugs and moisture, but will also be convenient for retailers that have limited shelf space and still want to stock Modesto Milling feed for their clients with low feed volume requirements.
As always, we value your feedback. We look forward to hearing what you think of the new sizes and are also working to determine which other feeds you would like to see in the 10 pound sizes.
Happy New Year to you, your families and the critters you keep!
