History: Lacy and Mike Truesdale took over NEO Feeds in Miami, Okla., in December 2022, change the store’s name and brought their knowledge of the agriculture industry with them to the new endeavor. Manager Samantha Brannam has been with the company for a month but was a manager for 12 years at another farm and ranch supply company.
Products and Services: Samantha said farmers and ranchers can find a wide selection of products at Ranch Supply-Miami.
“We have feed, tack, plants, livestock supplies, show supplies, vaccines for livestock and more,” she said.
All feed sold at Ranch Supply-Miami is bagged, and feed for all species of livestock is available.
“We do have our own special mix goat feed, and a cattle creep feed,” Samantha said.
Cubes and creep feed are among the biggest sellers at the store, as well as show feeds.
“We also have show supplies from Weaver and Sullivan,” she said. “On the feeds, we have a lot of ADM, Vita Charge and Ralco.”
For the equine owner, tack supplies include lead ropes, boots, roping bags, saddle pads and other items. “We are starting to get more horseshoeing supplies,” Samantha said.
With spring right around the corner, gardeners can find onion sets and lettuce, and tomato plants will arrive in the next couple of weeks.
Spring also means the addition of chicks to the store’s inventory.
“We have a good inventory of poultry products,” Samantha explained. “We have incubators, feed, feeders, waterer and egg cartons, too.”
Other products are frequency added, and Ranch Supply-Miami can order specialty products and items for customers, such as livestock handling equipment.
“If someone doesn’t see what they need, we will order it and get it on the way. We are very knowledgeable, and it never hurts to ask,” Samantha said.
Future plans: Samantha said they hope to expand current product lines and offer additional items in the coming weeks at Ranch Supply-Miami, focusing on the needs of area customers.
At their customer appreciation day event, set for April 22 at the store, Samantha said they hope to get people “in the door” to become acquainted with herself and the new owners.
