Ferrell Ross Steam Flaking Mill

Feedlot owners know the importance of getting cattle in and out in the shortest available time. Feed efficiency is a critical aspect of that cycle that has to be looked at from every possible angle, especially considering costs associated with that feed.

Ferrell Ross Manufacturing is one of the companies that makes those steam flaking mills. I spoke to Clay Gerber of Ferrell Ross about their mill at NCBA 2012 in Nashville, Tennessee.
