Pet Food Ingredient Bulk Storage J-Six Enterprises

Fairview Mills knows that pet food and ingredients are often cheaper to transport in bags than loose products. Fairview Mills can transload and bag your loose bulk pet food ingredients. It is much easier to transport your products from raw product to ready to use pet food. For example, send us whole corn. We will unload it and mill it. Then, we'll package it in the way you want. Your raw corn will now be ready for the next phase in the petfood processing industry.


If you plan to pack your pet food ingredients into bags and totes you need to make sure they are quality-controlled. Our pet food ingredient packaging system includes running every pet food product through our lab to determine its moisture level, nutrient break down, and other metrics. After that, we vigorously sift the ingredients, to eliminate as much chaff or dust as possible. This process will improve the quality of pet food ingredients and ensure that your fifty-pound bag is completely filled with your product, not with chaff or dust. It will make it easier to track inventory accurately when you know that a 50-pound bag of corn Gluten is actually fifty pounds.

Frequently Asked Questions

While dry milling is less capital intensive, it also yields less ethanol per bushel of corn than wet milling (Rajagopalan, et al., 2005). Wet milling involves steeping the corn for up to 48 hours to assist in separating the parts of the corn kernel.

Dry pet foods are made by mixing dry and wet ingredients together to form a dough. In the extrusion process, the dough is heated under pressure, then pushed through a die machine that cuts the kibbles. Kibble size and shape varies according to the product specification. The kibbles are dried, cooled and spray coated.
