F.W. Cobs

Shaun Brooks founded F. W. Cobs Company in 2006, after graduating from The University of Arizona with a degree in Animal Science. Shaun was raised in an agriculture setting both with his father’s feed mill and family dairy farm. Shaun’s father, John Brooks, helped Shaun build F. W. Cobs with his strong knowledge, having over 40 years in the grain business - founding Brooks Feeds Inc. in Swanton, VT, now owned by Poulin Grain, and also managing feed mill business for ADM and Renaissance Nutrition.

F. W. Cobs first started in the Northeast, but quickly grew to having a large North American presence, utilizing four strategically located grain elevators throughout the US and Canada.  F. W. Cobs buys and sells both feed and milling-grade grains; buying directly from the grower and delivering to feed mills and milling companies throughout North America.  F. W. Cobs is committed to supplying the best possible Organic, Non-GMO and Conventional Grains that help feed the world through building strong relationships with industry leading growers, thus ensuring premium quality products for it's customers.

Now almost 10 years later, we serve a diverse customer base ranging from multi-national conglomerates, locally owned and operated feed mills, and family owned and operated farms. We strive to understand our customers' needs and goals, to build strong relationships based on trust, reliability and competence in the markets we serve.  We understand that it is hard to find a knowledgeable and dedicated team who is committed to helping you achieve your goals. As farmers ourselves, we know that finding a trustworthy supplier for quality products often can be complicated and time consuming. We work diligently to obtain the best outcomes for all by streamlining transportation needs, managing logistics with a focus on timeliness and reliability.
