Stock Feed Australia
The livestock farming industry is not an easy industry. It takes resilience, perseverance and dedication to succeed – in short it’s a hard job but someone’s got to do it. For too long, in our view, there has been a gap between stock feed suppliers and the rest of the industry, however, here at Reid Stockfeeds we work tirelessly to bridge that gap. Whether you’re looking for stock feed manufacturers in Victoria or stock feed in Bendigo, or anywhere in-between, we are here to help and support you.
Reid Stockfeeds: Australia’s Finest Stock Feed Suppliers
We know that if you want to achieve the greatest output, it is essential that you not only have access to quality stock feed, but you also have access to advice, support and information. We have been supplying farms with stock feed in Victoria, Bendigo, Melbourne and all of Australia for almost four decades and during that time we have acquired a wealth of knowledge and experience. Unlike other companies, we don’t want to hoard that knowledge and experience for just our benefit, we want to share it with the wider livestock farming community so that everyone within the industry can benefit from our hard work and commitment.
We very much see ourselves as an integral component within the mechanism that makes up the food supply chain for livestock around Victoria, New South Wales and other prominent areas within Australia. We take that role very seriously and understand the responsibility that comes attached to being such a crucial cog within the industry. We always rise to the occasion and never fail in our unwavering ambition to serve the industry that we love and value.
From Humble Beginnings … the Reid Stockfeeds Story
Our current success and reputation all stem from very humble origins. We first started producing stock feed in 1982 and initially all of our animal feeds were created from a small, kitchen bench and our produce was delivered in a small but reliable Ford 600 Tipper.
Success did not come immediately, as like all things worth having, it took time and effort for our business to grow and thrive. In our first year, we managed to sell just forty tonnes of grain but we knew that our vision could be achieved if we carried on working hard and doing our best. We looked for ways to achieve our vision and concept of using grain that was nutritious and home grown to manufacture stock feeds that were commercially formulated.
After a careful and well-considered refinement process, we ended up with an exceptionally high quality grain and this led to an ever-increasing knowledge and understanding of nutrition and how important it is if you want to keep any form of livestock strong, healthy, and productive. We firmly believe that whether you’re talking about beef cattle, pigs, sheep, dairy cows or laying poultry / chicken, nutrition is paramount to achieving sustained growth and productivity.
As our product grew so did our reputation and we developed longstanding and effective relationships with a firm base of loyal and supportive customers. Since then, we have continued to grow and develop our business and our ambition is still as strong as ever. We want to grow and support customers within the communities we already operate in and develop more productive relationships with new customers so that our influence and the benefits of our stock feed can be shared more widely.
Our Vision and Values
We want to be acknowledged and recognised as an industry leader of choice and we aim to achieve this ambition through our positive practice. We pride ourselves on our honest and professional approach that permeates throughout everything we do as we work hard to do the best for all those involved, including our staff, our suppliers and most importantly our customers.
When it comes to our values, like the great nation that we are proud to represent, they are built around SHEEP. We use this acronym to communication our core values, which are Safety, Honesty, Enjoyment, Energetic and Professional.
For us, safety is incredibly important. We want to promote health at work so that our incredible team can return home to lead complete and enjoyable lives. We ensure that our staff are educated to a high standard so that we can maintain safe work processes and practice.
Honesty is one of our core values because we believe it’s essential that our customers know that they can trust us. It’s for this reason that we are very transparent about our procedures and background and welcome suggestions for improvement. We hold ourselves accountable for everything that we say and do – we see it as a near-crime to not deliver or not do something that you have said you were going to do. Our emphasis on honesty and our high levels of integrity ensure that our customers return to us time and time again.
We value enjoyment and energetic people within our company and firmly believe that if you love what you do then you’ll never work. We promote optimism, determination, innovation and humour in our company and are very proud of supportive and welcoming team – our family-based management mean that we treat each other as one big Reid Family. This then translates to better outcomes for our customers, which is very important to us.
Professionalism is also a crucial aspect of our operation. We ensure that our team work together effectively and exhibit self-control in everything they do. We believe that the standard you walk past is the standard you set and we value high levels of organisation and time management.

About Reid Stockfeeds
Starting in 1982, we ran Reid Stockfeeds from our kitchen bench and delivered our stockfeed in a little red, Ford 600 tipper.
That first year we produced just 40-tonnes of grain. But we refused to give up…
What Farmers Say
We can also provide feed for traditionally smaller livestock segments such as goat upon request.
“So the biggesst benefit for our business is their competitiveness on price for the product…” But dealing with Reids is more than just business. They’re part of our community and always willing to go far and beyond to support a good cause.
P.G & S.M Stammers
We run a number of pig farms and Reids have been our provider of feeds for about 7 – 8 years now. They’ve got some great staff who do their commodity buying and they’re proactive, so that was an unexpected benefit. The Reid’s family and business understand that failure in biosecurity is the enemy of their customers and they take it seriously.
We have over 20,000 free range hens and we’ve had a relationship with Reid’s for over 15 years. Excellent service and quality that keeps improving over time. Their team is very approachable and accommodating especially when I need their professional opinion. There’s not a lot of big companies who would offer that kind of service to their customers because they’re not just in it for profit. They actually care about their customers.
