Research,
the secret ingredient
of greatness.

All our testing and analysis aims at one goal -
animals that have a greatness you can see at a glance.

Your animals’ full potential. We never aim for less.

Our love of beautiful, healthy, productive animals drives everything we do at Purina. And the proof of our success is in barns and pastures everywhere.

Purina was born for greatness.

We mixed our first batch of feed in 1894. More than a century later, Purina leads innovation in animal nutrition. Our milestones mark the industry’s turning points. Today, Purina discoveries are standard practice for growers and trainers everywhere.

 

Researchers who get results.

The force behind our quest for greatness is a talented group of Ph.D. nutritionists and veterinarians. Together, they have conducted more than 24,000 research studies in fields across the country and registered over 125 patents.

 

It's not feed.
It's food.

The way we see it, there’s no such thing as being too careful with animal nutrition. That’s why we test each feed product at every step. And why we reject tons of ingredients that fail to meet our standards. Quality assurance is as old as the Purina name.

Picture of the Purina Mills Farm

A high-tech research facility that works like a farm.

We aren’t newcomers to research. It’s been part of our DNA since 1926. In fact, every Purina product you can buy was tested at our Animal Nutrition Center. To date, our research teams have analyzed over 1,500 nutrient combinations. Our 1,200-acre facility is an expansive working farm with separate units devoted to Equine, Dairy, Swine, Cattle and Companion Animal research. Caring for over 1,000 animals in every stage of development, our researchers seek vital new data in areas like digestive physiology, animal metabolism, and growth and development. Those insights drive product development and rigorous testing of new diet formulations, innovative milk replacers, and nutritional programs. All with a single aim — healthier, stronger animals that are the picture of greatness.
