“Our Patz Mixer Is A MUST . . . We’ll Never Go Back To Our Old Ways!”

welchfeed-1Terry Welch owns and operates Welch Feed & LP Gas in Waukon, Iowa. The family business has been supplying high-quality feed to local hog and dairy farmers seven days a week for nearly 30 years.

With 15,000 hungry hogs and numerous dairy cows depending on them, the Welches require a fast, reliable mixer they can count on. The Welches contacted their local Patz Dealer to replace their mixer mill with a more efficient method. Their dealer recommended the 350 cubic foot Patz 800 Series Stationary Vertical Mixer. This compact mixer is small enough to fit in their feed mill while still providing sufficient mixing capacity.

The Welches have experienced impressive results since installing their new mixer. Their Patz mixers ability to quickly mix a well-blended, consistent ration coupled with its fast discharge speed has saved considerable time and money. Paul Benda, driver for Welch Feed & LP Gas, remarked, “The mixer cut our labor time in half!”

Another money-saving asset: the mixer’s two-speed gearbox allows them to switch from low to high gears when mixing, assuring superior clean-out and less feed waste. The Welches appreciate that they can process a variety of feedstuffs, including round and square hay bales, without sacrificing mix quality or clean-out. Paul stated, “The mixer’s performance is excellent. We have seen great clean-out even with fine grains.”

Now, the Welches can’t imagine mixing feed without their Patz. Paul said, “Our Patz mixer is a must. We can’t live without it. We’ll never go back to our old ways.”
