Our Founder – Jim Ross
On November 5th, 2020 Jim Ross, our founder and friend passed peacefully from this world into the arms of his Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. Jim will be greatly missed by all of us at Grand Valley Fortifiers, the staff at the entire GVF group of companies, and the livestock producers that we have had the privilege of serving.
Jim loved farming and he loved farmers. Through his 60 years of work and leadership he constantly sought ways for farmers to “have a better shake” by helping to improve their performance or find better prices for the goods they produced. Today at GVF that remains our desire and we will do our best to carry forward the mission that Jim founded when he started Grand Valley Feeds in 1960.
