Since 1971, Ralco has helped producers naturally convert more nutrients to growth instead of waste. Our patented approaches in essential oils, energy maximizing diets and microbial processes ensure plants and animals keep energy focused on production versus fighting off challenges and waste.
Learn how we rethink nutrient conversion.
A BUSINESS OF GROWTH, NOT WASTE
Agriculture is ultimately a business of converting nutrients into growth. While nutrients from feed and fertilizer are some of the most expensive costs of production, much of their nutritional energy is never converted to growth. Rather, it's wasted as inputs pass through animals and soil underutilized or that energy is diverted to fighting challenges.
WHAT WE DO
Ralco works in three distinct areas to naturally convert more nutrients to growth, keep energy focused on production and fight nutrient waste.
Essential Oils &
Ralco pioneered the mainstream use of essential oils and plant extracts in the livestock industry.
Our patented technology transforms essential oils and plant extracts into trusted solutions that naturally improve the health and immunity of animals.
Energy Maximizing Diets
Ralco’s breakthrough approach to swine nutrition in the early 2000’s led to swine diet formulation that wastes less energy and focuses on digestibility for greater production and gain.
This approach also helps producers use less expensive ingredients.
Ralco was founded on a natural approach that breaks down fiber more efficiently in cattle by stimulating microbial processes in the rumen.
Fifty years later, this science has been applied to microbial environments from the rumen to the soil, maximizing inputs and reducing nutrient waste.
