Rabbit - GMO FREE
Buxton Feed Co. is a small family owned feed mill located in Buxton, Or. BFC opened this mill in 2001, in which BFC started making their own cattle feed. Over time the demand has grown and BFC has formulated several feed products based upon market demand. All feed products are formulated by BFC and quality approved by a nutritionist.
We changed to GMO FREE in 2010; as a result of listening to our customers requirements. We now produce 3 different types of rabbit feed, 18%, 16%, and 10% rations. These rations are certified to be GMO FREE, and contain no corn products. The 18% and 16% ration do have organic soy bean meal in them for the protein source, as there is really no other approved element from the FDA. Our 10% rabbit contains no soy bean meal or corn products.
Because we listen to our customers, a lot of you at the Bunny Palooza spoke with us suggesting that a timothy based rabbit feed would be better for the rabbits health. So for the past few months we have been working with Dr. Melinda Surrency and our full-time nutritionalist to work up a formula that would work for the companion rabbit community. We had our first run of the changed 10% rabbit on January 25, 2016. This improved 10% rabbit ration also got a new name, “Cuddle Bunny”. Cuddle Bunny comes in 5#, 10# bags, and a 25# bucket that is reusable.
