CFD Celebrates 75 Years of Business
Lon Stephens made a special presentation to Ken Ward of M.J. Ward & Son, Mike Ward of Ward & VanScoy, and Phil Rockwell of H. Rockwell & Son to congratulate them for their company’s 75 years of membership with CFD.
Brief History and Mission
CFD is a co-operative established in 1935 to assist independent feed mills and increase their purchasing power to compete effectively with the larger corporate mills. CFD was founded under the co-operative corporation laws of New York State. Throughout the years, profits have been returned to CFD members in the form of patronage dividends.
Under the co-operative, independent dealers, buying through CFD, receive competitive prices on retail store merchandise and feed ingredients. As the organization grew and proved effective, more services were added to meet the needs of our members and customers. Today, CFD has expanded to distribute agricultural, garden and pet supplies to numerous market segments. Our customers include feed mills and retail locations (farm supply stores, tack and feed stores, lawn & garden centers, hardware stores, pet supply stores, sporting goods stores and shoe stores). An expert staff is available to help with your farm, garden, and pet supplies, nutrition needs and feed ingredient purchases.
