We are proud to be your full service, local, commercial feed mill offering a wide selection of livestock feed, including several Non-GMO varieties of grains and feed.
In late 2013, Ben and Dana Wood had the idea of making a high quality feed at a low cost and minimizing the handling cost by selling it bulk. We’ve poured our hearts into our business and work hard to deliver the absolute finest feed for your farm. Our confidence in our products is proven by the fact that we feed this grain to our livestock daily and demand the best!
Born as a fourth generation cattle rancher, Ben grew up on the Wood V-X Ranch here in Sandpoint, Idaho. He spent his summers putting up hay and grain and his winters feeding and tending to the cattle. It is here where he learned the importance of livestock management and how to “make hay while the sun shines”.
In 2005, Ben graduated from Northwest College in Powell, Wyoming with an Associates of Applied Science in Farm and Ranch Business Management. He then returned home to live on the ranch and be a full time rancher. In 2006, Ben married his high school sweetheart, Dana. They now have 3 children, Levi, Josie and Logan. While Dana takes care of the home front and grain customers, Ben stays busy keeping up with the daily chores – with 350 mother cows, 400 acres of grain, and over 800 acres of ground for hay and pasture, there is always plenty to be done!
In the fall of 2013, Ben and his father, Leonard Wood, built a feed mill originally intended for ranch use only. With the price of grain in the local feed stores, Ben and Dana saw an opportunity to use the new feed mill to help fill a void in the feed market. So, once the feed mill was completed, they began offering simple, yet high-quality, feed mixes for swine, poultry, cattle and many other classes of livestock. It has been a success – now Wood’s Hay & Grain offers 40 products registered with the State of Idaho.
Wood’s Hay and Grain is proud to stay true to its Ag roots and a child of the Wood V-X ranch. They raise almost all of the feed that they mill and sell, and the ranch continues to remain the feed mills biggest customer, feeding over 100 tons of grain per year! The best part is that the man running the feed mill, making this high quality grain for customers, is also feeding the same grain to his livestock daily.
