VALUE ADDED FEEDS
Providing nutrient reclaim products by utilizing patent processes with the mission of reducing wastes in the food industry and reclaiming the valuable vitamins and nutrients was the basis for starting Value Added Feeds as Alternative Feeds in 1989. The technology developed by Value Added Feeds in Dallas, Texas provides young calves a dairy product that is identical to milk in nutrition, appearance and consistency and it has remained completely sanitized, with bacterial counts measured at the on-site laboratory. Value Added Feeds formed a mission to provide "Feed from Food" in as many areas as possible, providing animal feed from nutrients reclaimed from the food industry. These processes are the result of combining the extravagant minds of Mark Quinn, DVM, Gary Rowher, PhD (Parma Laboratories), and David Hutchison, PhD (Animal Agricultural Consulting Services).
