...are available to name a few of the ranch supplies we stock. Livestock supplies can be delivered to you or loaded while you wait.
Elk River Pet & Ranch offers grass, alfalfa and certified hay, which can be loaded while you wait or delivered and stacked for you.
All hay, straw or mulch used by pack and saddle stock, outfitters and ranchers who have grazing permits or are located in ski areas and some contractors are now required by the U.S. Forest Service to use Certified Hay. Certified hay is noxious-weed free. Each state has a noxious weed list and inspects the hay periodically to determine the occurrence of any species that are on the list.
Products subject to regulations:
These products are subject to certification regardless of whether they are used for feed, bedding, erosion control or other uses. Penalties may by enforced for violations of the regulations.
In the Rocky Mountain region, weed-free products have been inspected according to specifications required by the North American Weed Management Association. Many fields are inspected to make sure that 54 noxious weed species are not present. Fields passing inspection are then "certified," with the producer allowed to label the products as weed free.
Elk River is proud to offer Purina Mills, Manna Pro and ADM livestock feeds. We also carry livestock salt, mineral, mineral and protein tubs, hay, straw and shavings for all livestock species.
Keep it all fenced in and protected with Tarter gates and panels, wire and wood fencing. We also carry Gallagher electric fencing, t-posts, pounders, nails, stretchers and other fencing supplies.
We have everything you need for your ranch in Routt County. Our products stand up to the sometimes harsh climate of Northwest Colorado.
