Whether you’re feeding dairy cattle or laying hens, we’ve got the feed products you’re looking for

The right feed for the right animal

United Cooperative is surrounded by some of the most productive dairy and beef counties in the state. But that’s not all we feed around here: there are also pigs, chickens, horses, sheep and goats as well as lots of family pets. With seven feed mills, plus partnerships with Purina and Quality Liquid Feeds (QLF), we offer plenty of options for every animal, from milk replacer to finishing feeds.

We offer professional nutrition consulting services at each of our nine feed locations, and we also work with independent dairy nutritionists to provide concentrates, premixes and complete feeds for virtually any operation. With the addition of state-of-the-art mills in Shawano and Wilton, we have also introduced a new calf feeding program that is quickly winning over calves and producers alike.

To learn more about our commercial livestock, hobby or companion animal feed and nutrition services, please visit the location nearest you (see location map below), or call our main office in Beaver Dam: 800-924-2991.

Feed Services

Coaxing the best performance out of each animal under your care requires more than just meeting their nutritional requirements. Our feed specialists are also trained to help with other aspects of livestock production, including benchmarking calf performance, identifying existing and potential health issues, and looking at environmental influences such as ventilation and hygiene.

We like to say that we can help dairy producers from the time a calf is born, to when the cow leaves the dairy. To learn more, please contact one of our feed specialists, or call 800-924-2991.

Consistency and a High Plane of Nutrition are Key to a Profitable Cow in the Parlor

Dec 04, 2020

Have you ever sat down, did some napkin math and figured how much more milk a healthy, consistently growing heifer could be bringing to the parlor during her first lactation? What about how this affects breeding or age at first calving? It’s no surprise that raising replacement heifers is one of the biggest investments on the dairy and an area that should be a priority for the future of your milking herd.

Are your barn and calves ready for the cold?

Nov 04, 2020

Calves that are raised in hutches get all the fresh air they want if they are properly bedded. During winter, most calf barns leave their curtains raised and rely on fans and tubes for air exchanges. Is your current system getting an adequate four air exchanges per hour?

With winter moving in, this is the time of the year to check how your calves are adjusting to the cold. Calves are born with 3% to 4% of body weight as fat. As we enter the coldest part of the year, we have already experienced days below a calf’s thermal neutral zone.
