Our Milling Capabilities

Central Region Cooperative operates feed mills in Gibbon and Sleepy Eye. Our mill operators and truck drivers together average 20 years of feed industry experience. These mills follow the Land O’Lakes® Quality Assurance Program. This rigorous, inspection-based program guarantees the high-quality bulk feeds necessary for profitable livestock production and required by processors and government as our nation’s focus shifts to food supply safety.

Dedication To Quality (DTQ) Program:

    At CRC feed quality is priority #1. This is attained by following a rigorous feed quality assurance program. This program follows a set of criteria which allows CRC to meet and/or exceed FDA requirements for food safety and production.

    To achieve this CRC not only completes weekly, monthly and annual testing,  but also uses the services of a third party  to complete annual audits of our mills. The results of the tests are submitted to a third party for verification that requirements are being met and follow up if needed.

     The following is a general description of our Dedication to Quality Program
