How we work

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


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 fueled 46 years of continued innovation. Today, Micro 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 than ever before 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. That is why at Micro 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.


Our people, partnerships and passion are what make the difference

Our associates are our greatest asset and the cornerstone on which we have build our success. We realize that our customers have a multiple of things to manage every day, and our goal is to provide the technologies, systems and people that allow them the peace of mind to know that certain components of their business "just work". Our highly committed and expert technical force implement specialized programs and provide same-day service, 365 days a year.

People delivering equipment

Micro 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.
