About Ross Manufacturing
Ross Manufacturing has been in business over fifty five years. In
1952 D. W. (Dick) Ross retired from the pipe line business in Texas
to return to West Tennessee where he was born and raised,
because he wanted to become a farmer. In 1956, after seeing the
necessity of an on the farm feed mill, Ross Manufacturing was
founded. In the early years, D. W. Ross would travel from West
Tennessee to Nebraska and all the way to the south and east
coasts, to sell and install complete feed mill systems. He would
manufacture the feed mills, and buy the augers and bucket
elevators to complete the systems. After fabrication, the employees
of Ross Manufacturing would deliver the equipment and then
become the millwright.
The 1960’s brought augers and bucket elevators into production,
and the installation that was done by Ross, was then replaced by
dealers. There are still feed mills operating that were installed in
the early 60s. Chain drag conveyors were added to the product line
in the 80s. Today Ross manufactures a full line of grain handling
equipment, feed mills, and accessories.
D. W. Ross passed away in May 1997 at the age of 91. He
remained active in the company until three years prior to his death.
Glenda Autry has been with Ross Manufacturing Company since
1980 and is the current owner. She continues to carry on the Ross
philosophy that “we stand behind our workmanship, and strive to
build high quality products which are cost effective and easy to
