As a retailer, it is important to stay on top of trends and changes to the industry. One of the most significant changes in the last ten years is the growth of the farm and ranch category. Sales figures at the top farm supply stores in the U.S. now total over $6 billion, and tractor supply stores have grown by nearly 60 percent since 2007. These large numbers are leading many hardware retailers, including Ace and True Value store owners, to add farm, pet and ranch departments.
Below are a few feed-focused products that can help fill out a farm and ranch category. For a comprehensive list of key products for the farm and ranch category, visit the National Hardware Show® website.
