FORM-A-Feed Inc. announced last week the acquisition of Agri-Nutrition Consulting Inc. (ANC), an animal nutrition consulting company based in DeForest, Wis.
The acquisition, which recognizes the need to appeal to the industry trends of large commercial herds, will combine Form-A-Feed's expertise in quality manufacturing and product development with ANC's diverse team of independent consultants and nutrition programs, the announcement said.
The transaction closed on Jan. 9, after which ANC was dissolved and the new Agri-Nutrition Consulting LLC was formed.
The acquisition is expected to be a win-win for Form-A-Feed, ANC and ANC's independent consultants and their customers, according to the announcement.
"We are looking forward to the opportunity to bring more value to our customers through the sale. Form-A-Feed also has the resources ANC needs to continue to expand to new markets and grow along with the trends of the industry," ANC operations manager Carol Chesemore explained.
Eric Nelson of Form-A-Feed added, "I'm thrilled to begin working with ANC's team on this new venture. ANC has the right team members and ideas in place to really impact the livestock nutrition business, and I'm excited to work with them to develop even more new ideas and programs beneficial to ANC, Form-A-Feed and our customers."
