Kalmbach Feeds was founded in 1963 by Milton and Ruth Kalmbach who shared a vision of a new way of doing business. Their goal was to design quality feed products, manufacture those products with the highest quality control procedures in the most efficient facility, and provide the product to the customer at the best possible value.
Kalmbach Feeds began as a grind and mix plant in Upper Sandusky, Ohio. Milton, a poultry nutritionist, saw that he could improve the quality of products and service by selling bulk feed by the truckload. Feed was able to be made and shipped much more efficiently this way—the customer received the highest quality feed at the best possible value. The staff included Milton and Ruth Kalmbach and one man to produce feed.
Today the plant produces a full line of products to meet the needs of every livestock producer – from the large commercial farm, the family hobby, the 4-H member and to the show competitor. Milton and Ruth’s son, Paul, continues to lead the family owned business while focusing on the initial founding goal. Kalmbach Feeds has grown to consist of over 250 employees.
