Each time you walk into your feed store are you greeted with a smile and an offer to help? Is the staff knowledgeable and up to date on the products they sell? Can they talk to you about the nutritional value of the products they offer? How much training have they had on the products they sell? Do they really care about you and your livestock or animal needs? At Mansfield Feed Mill we take our role of educating animal owners seriously. It takes plenty of time and effort to learn about the products we sell. But the extra work pays off because we are able to help answer any questions you may have about our products.
Mansfield Feed Mill is proud to be a “Purina Certified Expert Dealer.’” This designation means that Mansfield Feed Mill offers a complete line of quality Purina feed products, have knowledgeable and trained associates, and are a one-stop-shop for all our customers’ animal needs. Whether your focus is equine, cattle, wildlife or pet; Mansfield Feed Mill offers the most complete source for your animal nutrition needs.
Training is a key element at Mansfield Feed.
In the case of Purina products, our employees receive additional training through a variety of methods. When new Purina products are being released, training is offered away from the store. Products that require a certain amount of technical expertise require certification for the store to sell them. We conduct up to six feeding trials a year with our customers on a range of Purina products from horse, cattle or wildlife.
Many of our employees have had the opportunity to attend the Longview Animal Nutrition Center outside of St. Louis, MO. This Purina development center provides a great training ground to learn about the development of products and the nutrition behind them. Online training via the internet is also available, and not only to us. Customers interested in the nutritional value of their horse are encouraged to Purina Horse where you can find modules on horse nutrition. Customers are rewarded with horse coupons upon finishing this training.
Events & Workshops
Another way Mansfield Feed sets itself apart from other stores is the events we offer our customers. In the spring we offer free Horse Owner’s Workshops, which provide horse nutrition education by Purina Mills. You also have the chance to learn from clinicians, farriers, experts in the animal health industry and more. During other times the year we offer events such as cattle training meetings, deer and game meetings, and pond management.
Stop by our store and let our knowledgeable staff consult with you about your feeding program. We can help design a program that best fits the needs of you and your animals. Additionally, we make sure it is an economical solution for your budget. We are here to serve you from the minute you walk through the door to when we carry your feed out to your vehicle.
