Facility – 40650 Sunflower Oil Road Mitchell, NE
Our facility is a family owned feed mill located at 40650 Sunflower Road in Mitchell, Nebraska. This plant was purchased by Eric and Jackie McManaman in 2010 and was quickly put into production under the name of Platte Valley Ag Products, Inc. (PVAP).
Many improvements have been made to the facility over the past few years, but the heart of the production capability still revolves around alfalfa hay, grains, and all natural protein sources.
Our facility provides adequate warehouse space to store finished products in an all weather environment. Our Office & Store location is on site adjacent to the warehouse facility to best serve our customers.
Locally Grown, All Natural, High Quality Ingredients
All of the products used in this plant meet all natural criteria. PVAP has not, and will not use non-protein nitrogen (NPN) sources for its protein sources.
Thus, contamination of feedstuffs by these NPN products is virtually impossible. Additionally, there are no medicated drug premixes on the premises.
For special requests contact the office at (308) 623-1069 and ask for Kaden or Eric.
