Alltech acquires WestFeeds

Acquisition strengthens Alltech's commitment to livestock agriculture in western U.S.

Alltech announced that it has purchased WestFeeds, a leading animal nutrition company in Montana. Alltech said the acquisition strengthens its commitment to bringing the latest field-proven technologies to livestock producers and companion animal owners in the western U.S.

“WestFeeds has a strong reputation of providing producers with high-quality animal nutrition products,” Alltech chief operating officer Michael Castle said. “We believe there is great benefit for our customers in our teams joining forces for the future.”

With state-of-the-art manufacturing plants in Billings and Great Falls, Mont., as well as outlets in Billings, Dillon, Great Falls, Lewistown and Miles City, Mont., WestFeeds has a demonstrated commitment to local support.

“Our WestFeeds team is embracing the opportunity to join Alltech because we can see very clearly how our companies' strengths complement one another -- to the benefit of our customers,” Jerry Begger, general manager of WestFeeds, said.

Begger will continue leading WestFeeds, assisted by 10-year Alltech veteran Kyle Klimpke.

Founded in 1980 by Irish entrepreneur and scientist Dr. Pearse Lyons, Alltech is a family-owned company that discovers and delivers solutions for the sustainable nutrition of plants, animals and people. With more than 100 manufacturing sites globally, Alltech is a leading producer and processor of yeast and organic trace minerals and has a flagship algae production facility in Kentucky that is one of only two of the kind in the world.
