Keeping ahead of the curve.
That's what customers have come to expect from Country Junction Feeds. That what the CJF team has aimed to deliver. sermo.farm has been fortunate to be part of the team helping tell thier story.
An example of the Country Junction Feeds mindset is the commitment over the past 10 years to meet the rising demand for certified organic feed.
"We always have been about looking forward," says Bernie Grumpelt, a nutritionist with Country Junction Feeds. "That has been a good fit with our customers because they have been the same way."
In order to meet organic standards a feed ration must be sourced from a certified organic feed mill. That's what Country Junction Feeds offers as the only full line feed mill producing organic feeds in Alberta, serving customers across Canada and into the U.S. including a recent strengthened presence in B.C., offering a broad range of pelleted and crumbled certified organic feed.
Standards customers can rely on
In the commercial feed business, a clear trend is that customers need assurance of the quality and standards they are receiving. This is important not only for people feeding animals and livestock but for the market value chains for livestock products.
“We want our customers to have access to the greatest range of options available for whatever market opportunities they wish to pursue," says Grumpelt. "As an early adopter in the area of certified organic feed, as well as in other areas such as assuring ionophore-free, antibiotic-free feed, we are able to show a strong track record of meeting requirements and serving as a reliable, consistent supplier.”
This approach has become important as demand for organic has continued to rise. Also, as new rules come in to play that restrict the use of antimicrobials in agriculture. And as concerns rise about the danger to equine and other species from exposure to feed from facilities where ionophores have been present.
Tried and true values
"When you buy feed from Country Junction Feeds you know what you are getting, it's as simple as that," says Darrell Kimmel, Manager of Counry Junction Feeds. "Our standards are based on stict protocols to ensure safe, high-quality feed every time. Our customers have peace of mind all feed from our facilities is ionophore-free and antibiotic-free. Added to that, we offer certified organic feed. And perhaps most important of all, all of our feed is formulated by some of the best nutritionists in the business. All of this ties together as part of our commitment to quality, which will continue to what we stand for now and into the future."
