At Purina, we’ve been feeding greatness with the help of American farmers for 125 years.
It all starts at the Purina Animal Nutrition Center in Gray Summit, Missouri, where we raise backyard chickens just like our customers. We work with backyard chickens each day, assuring our feeds are formulated specifically to help backyard birds start and stay Flock Strong®.
Our feed formulations are then fulfilled with the help of America’s farmers and more than 60 local feed mills throughout the United States. We source top-quality grains from U.S. farmers and test feed at every step to meet our gold standard of quality assurance.
As a part of Land O’ Lakes, Inc., we’re proud to be part of a farmer-owned cooperative. Purina is available through more than 4,700 local cooperatives, independent retailers and stores throughout the country.
