On the 19th of September 2007, Reid Langdon Pty Ltd began operation. This joint venture was the initial stage of an agreed total acquisition of Langdon Produce which reached completion on the 31st of December 2011. On January 1st 2012, Reid Stockfeeds Pty Ltd took responsibility for all operations at the Cobden based mill servicing the South-West Victorian Dairy region.
Reid Stockfeeds is a family company started by Ian and Rosli Reid to value add grain grown on the family farm in 1984. The company grew quietly through the eighties, operating solely in the Goulburn and Murray Valley’s. It took off on the back of increased dairy feeding during the nineties. In 1998 they purchased V Jean and Son, a long standing feed manufacturer in Gippsland and completed the triangle of dairy regions with the entry into the south west through the Langdon Produce business. The new mill at Cobden opened in May 2009.
The consolidation of Reid Stockfeeds across Victoria places it as one of the largest family owned manufacturers and suppliers of dairy and intensive animal stockfeed in the state. Alongside this, a team of 8 consulting nutritionists service the client base, customising feed to each individual farms requirements seasonally.
“We have purchased a fantastic business which continues to grow. We want to maintain and improve our reputation as providing the best product and best customer service in the industry. We will continue to market the Langdon Produce range of packaged products through stores and bring along some of our other products, like ‘Eggs 4 Sure’, a premium layer blend which has been a real success for us across our other Victorian sites” Ian Reid.
For the first time Reid Stockfeeds exhibited at Sungold Field Days. The exhibit was a great success and consulting staff would like to thank all those farmers who came by and made inquiries.
