History

A Family Business Serving Farmers for Over 100 years

In an ever-changing economy, businesses and services come and go. With Famo Feeds, you can rely on decades of consistent service, trusted performance, and high quality products.

This tradition of service began in 1903 when the business was originally founded. In the 1970’s, the Beste family purchased the company. “The company actually started out as a grain and flour business,” Tom Beste explains. “Over time, the feed aspect came into play and eventually became the sole focus.”

Famo Feeds has always been a family business, and we maintain a strong forward-thinking, family-oriented approach that has earned Famo Feeds a reputation for high quality feeds, exceptional service, and great people.

The Beste Family: Working Together for Better Animal Nutrition

Tom and John Beste have decades of experience working in the feed business. Together they work with their nutrition, sales and marketing, production, office, and delivery staff to provide the best service and support to their clients. Every day they build upon Famo’s commitment to creating quality nutritional solutions for livestock and poultry.

Still Evolving

Famo Feeds continues to adapt to ensure we provide products and services that meet the demands of modern producers. Our technical team regularly attends meetings to gather the most advanced information to apply to our programs. In recent years, we have been refining our products and programs for calf nutrition based on new university research. We have also adjusted our product line to better cater to the automated feeding systems that are increasing in popularity. Our various lines of feeds and programs are regularly evaluated to ensure that they do not become stagnant or outdated. We continue to evolve within this industry to be leaders in innovative feeding methods and strategies.

Driving Forward with Innovative Products and Nutrition Services

With a history of service, a foundation of trust, and a future of possibilities, Famo Feeds continues to drive forward with innovative products and nutrition services to help producers throughout the upper Midwest build and maintain healthy, productive herds and businesses.
