LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY, U.S. — Strengthening its commitment to bringing the latest field-proven technologies to Western U.S. livestock producers and companion animal owners, Alltech has purchased WestFeeds, an animal nutrition company based in Montana, U.S.

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

With manufacturing plants in Billings and Great Falls Montana, U.S., as well as outlets in Billings, Dillon, Great Falls, Lewistown and Miles City, Montana, WestFeeds has a demonstrated commitment to local support, Alltech said.

“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,” said Jerry Begger, general manager of WestFeeds.

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