Feed Mill

The feed mill delivers mixed rations to all three PREEC livestock facilities located on the University of Idaho main campus. The mill staff works daily to calculate and mix rations that fit the needs of livestock ranging from lactating dairy cows to lambing ewes. This gives the diverse opportunity for students working for the facility to work with different species to meet their needs. Overall the facility mixes and delivers 2,500 tons of feed annually, and feeds on average 500 head of livestock.

The feed mill also works with researchers across the state to mix accurate and consistent rations to benefit their research trials whether it is to study metabolism or reproduction.

The facility has a total of 700 acres which are divided into livestock pastures, hay fields and silage fields. On average the facility grows 130 acres of high quality grass hay and 200 acres of alfalfa, barley and triticale for silage. All of these forages are used for research purposes, and mixed throughout several different rations. Students are given the opportunity to learn about forage brokering as all other commodities used in the rations are brought in from across the Pacific Northwest.

Equipment used:

  • Kirby 450 Aggressor Horizontal Mixer truck
  • Jaylor 2575 Vertical Mixer truck
  • Roto Grind Tub Grinder
  • Caterpillar Telehandler

Facilities:

  • Two hay storage barns 9,500 and 5,400 square feet
  • Val Metal 4R12 Roller Mill
  • Mixing room with a complete auger system for truck side loading
  • Four commodity bays

The feed mill is located at 255 Farm Rd. in Moscow, behind the Palouse Empire Mall.
