Saturday, March 1 was a great day for Snow College students Kyle DeGraw and Cody Ruby. DeGraw and Rudy are the creators of the high-quality livestock feeder manufacturing business “DeGraw Customs”.

After winning $1000 dollars at the Snow College Opportunity Quest banquet, Degraw Customs then took their business idea to Utah State to compete against more than 150 collegiate teams. They took home $5,000 3rd place prize and an additional $3,000 for the Stoel Rives Best Technology Award and $2,000 for the Actium Partners Bootstrap Award. Taking home, a total of $10,000.

The co-founder of DeGraw Customs, Cody Ruby, said “I feel like what’s brought us so far is we have a legit business that we’re starting. I think that’s what’s helped us more than anything. You can’t just come up with ideas; it’s got to be do-able.”

What DeGraw and Rudy have come up with is a livestock feeder that is cost efficient, doesn’t waste hay, is portable, and lasts longer than regular feeders.  

The Entrepreneurship Center and all of Snow College congratulates DeGraw and Ruby and wish them the best on their future business!
