FEWER DAIRY FARMS, LARGER HERDS

Availability of wet grains in the northeast, abundant water and forage in the west give rise to larger commercial dairies.

Dairy Continues to Grow on the Plains

Based in part on our wide open spaces, ideal climate and abundant feed supplies, Kansas and southeastern Nebraska continue to expand milk production. Countryside Feed, with mills in Hillsboro and Seneca, offers feed products and nutrition services for virtually every stage of dairy livestock growth, from milk replacer and calf feeds, to replacement heifers, lactating cows and dry cows.

Whether you incorporate wet grain by-products into your rations, such as corn gluten or distillers grains, or feed more traditional forages, silage or hay, our experienced nutritionists can create dairy rations to deliver everything your animals need for peak economic production. 

For dairies with nutritional expertise on staff, we work closely with your team to deliver exactly the base mixes, supplements and mineral packages you need, delivered to your location.
 

Healthy Calves During Winter

Maintaining body temperature in cold weather results in higher caloric needs of baby calves. Providing quality milk replacer and palatable calf starter along with proper bedding and hydration is a recipe for success for raising healthy calves in the winter. Countryside Feed, LLC has milk replacers and calf starters to give your calves a healthy start this winter.
