Technology At Work In Your Feed

DSC_1701

The CVA feed production team takes great pride in consistently providing superior products for each of our customers. Quality and care are given to each batch of feed with particular attention to inclusion rates, micron size, and ingredient quality. Each of our nine feed mills are capable of providing specific feed for multiple species such as cattle, swine, and poultry. Central Valley Ag has invested both time and finances into manufacturing technology.

CVA has invested in systems such as Feed Mill Manager and Beta Raven to improve technology at locations. Systems such as these have allowed us to control and continually improve on order entry, manufacturing, and billing. With FMM, all CVA mills are now interconnected on a single system, controlling thousands of rations for each mill on a central system. FMM also allows CVA to utilize central billing, monitoring for accuracy and pricing. Beta Raven is a manufacturing system used to run inclusion rates, batching, and mixing. Manufacturing technology and the use of VFDs (Variable Frequency Drives) take the inconsistency out of ingredient inclusion and elevates ingredient batching accuracy to 2%. This increased accuracy translates to meeting the nutrition expectations of our customers.

We consistently strive to make our customers our number one priority. Our feed mill teams work tirelessly to improve efficiency and work to incorporate technology where possible to make this a reality. Whether the client needs a 30-ton truckload or a single 50-pound bag; the CVA feed team is well equipped to get the job done efficiently and effectively.
