Why Tyson

Tyson Foods History

We’ve been making animal feed for our operations and feed ingredients for sale for a very long time. From our earliest years as a company, our founder John W. Tyson, made chicken feed to ensure the quality and quantity he needed for a growing business. Soon, Tyson’s Feed and Hatchery was a trusted name in the business. And every bag of feed proudly proclaimed: "There is no substitute for quality." We believe that statement is as true today as it was then.
