How we work

Since 1971, we have delivered on our commitment to innovation, value creation and service.


Innovation

Decades of unwavering commitment

Micro Technologies was founded in 1971 as Micro Chemical by Bill Pratt. Bill recognized a need for revolutionary technology within the feedlot industry — a spark that has fueled nearly 50 years of continued innovation. Today, Micro Technologies serves a majority of the feedyard industry and has expanded into the dairy industry.

Value creation

Our responsibility

As the world’s population grows, we are challenged to produce more, higher-quality protein with the use of less natural resources. We believe a path to securing a safe, affordable and wholesome food supply will come primarily as a result of innovation. We feel it is our responsibility to provide technologies in an effort to assure food quality, safety and security for our families, friends, neighbors and the world.

Service

Our people, partnerships and passion make the difference

People delivering equipment
Our associates are our greatest asset and the cornerstone on which we have built our success. We realize our customers have a multitude of things to manage every day. Our goal is to provide the technologies, systems and people to allow you the peace of mind to know certain components of your business "just work". Our highly-committed and expert technical force teams implement specialized programs and provide same-day service, 365 days a year, because we know your business runs 365/24/7.
People delivering equipment
Micro Technologies is a business partner of ours, not a vendor. When we have a problem and it's late, they aren't clocking out at five. They're right there with us. They are really in it to make sure that we are successful and really act like part of our team - always willing to help solve any problem we have at any time.
