Livestock Feed & Nutrition
Keeping livestock fed is a massive task with a lot of variables. At Rockingham Cooperative, we strive to make the feed purchasing process as simple and easy as possible. We have put together a supply chain with feed producers, suppliers, and farmers to bring all of the necessary products and expertise to one convenient location.
Our feed department offers customers a wide range of feed commodities for purchase at highly competitive prices. We will also forward contract commodities through the futures market on the customer’s behalf as a price risk management service. Our feeds come in the size and form that best serve your animals and livestock. Feed comes in mealed, pelleted, and textured forms in bagged or bulk delivery. Our commodities include the following and our mills even create custom mixes to fit the needs of your animals:
- Molasses Blends
- Soybean Meal
- Dried Distillers Grain
- Brewers Grain
- Wheat Midds
- Cottonseed Products
We have two local feed mills to deliver the best products to our customers.
Since 1947 Rockingham Cooperative’s Timberville Feed Mill has provided exceptional feed milling services to area farmers. In addition to blending stock feeds offered at Rockingham Cooperative retail locations, the Timberville Feed Mill will also blend custom formulations that can be delivered either in bag or bulk for Cooperative patrons.
Started in 1919, our Rockingham Mill is now a full-line feed/mineral manufacturer for all production animal species including custom feeds in meal or pelleted form in bulk, totes or 50 lb. bags. Rockingham Mill offers corn-drying and soybean roasting and dairy ration-balancing and formulation.
