Committed to supply chain excellence by providing a safe, stable supply of high quality forage products.

Zen-Noh Hay, Inc. (ZHI) was founded in 1995 to establish a link between the United States and Japanese livestock farmers who require top quality forage products for their livestock.


ZHI is a wholly owned subsidiary of Zen-Noh Grain Corporation (ZGC). Both companies purchase and export U.S. agricultural products, primarily in support of a supply chain managed to provide ZEN-NOH, Japan’s National Federation of Agricultural Cooperative Associations, with a safe and stable supply of high quality raw materials predominantly for feed use.

Zen-Noh Grain Corporation (ZGC), founded in 1979, was formed to establish a safe and stable supply of U.S. food grains and soybeans for the production of compound feed by ZEN-NOH’s feed mills in Japan.

To accomplish the goal of establishing a safe and stable supply of U.S. corn and soybeans, ZGC constructed a state of the art export elevator located at mile 164 on the Mississippi River in Convent, Louisiana.  The elevator can load or unload, simultaneously, more than 150,000 bushels per hour.  To this day, the Convent elevator is considered to be the fastest export elevator in the world and has undergone further upgrades to improve operational efficiency.
