Our Vision

A Foundation of Trust

Ralco is a third-generation family business owned by Brian & Mindy Knochenmus and Jon & Niter Knochenmus, a family with deep faith and conviction. At Ralco we feel compelled to make choices that exceed standards and expectations. Our decisions and actions positively impact everyone we contact.

A Grand Mission

Never before have so many people relied on so few for their food, and never has the population been as skeptical about their food supply. It is our mission to perfect technologies that naturally create an abundant global food supply. We carry out our mission through applied science and research that enhance practical natural technologies for the agriculture and aquaculture industries. In a world filled with technology that people mistrust, creative thinking has driven Ralco to provide trusted alternatives.

Meeting Customer & Consumer Needs

Today’s consumer is shaping trends in the food industry like never before. When Ralco was started more than 45 years ago, its founder Bob Galbraith believed in making the most of feedstuffs and raising livestock as naturally as possible. Today Ralco carries on that tradition by providing natural alternatives to the livestock, poultry, aquaculture and crop industries while meeting consumer demands of safe, sustainable food.

Trusted Products

Our proprietary natural technologies come to life in Ralco products that are safe for plants, animals, producers and consumers around the globe. The quality of our products demonstrates a commitment to our customers and every family that sits down at the dinner table.

Process & Manufacturing Excellence

We take pride in our state-of-the-art manufacturing centers that are HACCP, Safe Food Safe Feed, GMP+ and FAMI-QS certified. Our processes ensure precision, consistency and traceability of our products for enhanced food safety. Our newly remodeled plant in Marshall, Minnesota is also a drug-free facility.

Growing & Established Partner

Ralco is a rapidly growing business with global reach. We distribute products in over 20 countries with offices in Ecuador, Uruguay, The Netherlands, Thailand and Canada. We take our technologies to the people that need them. This has made us a leading global provider of livestock nutrition, animal health products, crop enhancement products and shrimp production technology.
