Rumenco announces acquisition of feed company Owens Nutrition
27th September 2023
Ruminant nutrition company Rumenco has announced its acquisition of family-run Owens Nutrition as of 21st September, 2023.
The purchase of the North Yorkshire-based business coincides with the retirement of Andrew Owens from the position of company director.
Over 25 years the family business has developed a reputation for the manufacture, supply and service of molassed buckets, together with the distribution of high-quality calf and lamb milk powders.
Dr Frank Heap, chairman of Rumenco, confirmed that Andrew Owens will remain in the company to oversee the transition into next year. The highly regarded molassed buckets and milk powders will remain unchanged, and Clwyd Davies and Simon Leversha will continue to market them as they have successfully done over the years.
Specialising in beef, dairy and sheep nutrition for the past 70 years, Rumenco manufactures products for livestock farmers to maximise animal performance from home-grown feeds and forage 365 days of the year.
The company supplies feed blocks, molassed feed, mineral and low moisture buckets, together with a range of minerals and liquid feeds.
Dr Heap added: “Owens Nutrition is complementary to Rumenco and will allow us to extend our work in providing livestock producers with innovative products, strongly supported by research and a technical team, for multiple areas of livestock production.”
