Quality Assurance

The foundation supporting Witmer’s successful production of consistent, quality products is our commitment to conform to the company’s nutritional and physical specifications of all products sold or delivered. A prevention based approach with focus on critical control points throughout our process is the driving force behind Witmer’s quality assurance. Critical control points within the manufacturing process include testing ingredients for mycotoxins, scale certification, formula verification, particle size analysis, mixer coefficient of variation testing, and finished feed moisture content. Third party co-lab analysis of products is also used as a calibration tool.

At Witmer’s Feed and Grain, quality begins with the development of quality ingredient specifications. We inventory over 200 ingredients through our approved supplier program. Products which are utilized have gone through rigorous science, merit-based reviews, and are approved by our Veterinarian and Nutritionists. While many feeds are sold on specifications alone, Witmer’s guarantees 100% the ingredients and the specification of the feeds for the well-being of your livestock. Your cows will notice the improvement.
