KEENAN establishes new dealer partnership in Ontario
New service provider underlines KEENAN’s commitment to farmers to never miss a feed
[GUELPH, Canada] – KEENAN, a leader in manufacturing quality mixer wagons, has been building an impressive presence in North America since it was acquired by global animal nutrition company Alltech in 2016. Striking a new dealer partnership with Ontario Harvestore Systems has led to increased support from producers in the region.
“We decided to pursue a partnership between KEENAN and Ontario Harvestore due to our shared values of helping producers achieve maximum efficiency,” said Stuart McGregor, general manager of KEENAN Canada. “Its long history of more than 53 years in the province shows a dedication to helping producers thrive for generations and makes KEENAN a perfect fit.”
Long synonymous with excellence in nutrition and driving animal health, KEENAN mixer wagons produce a unique homogeneous mix, which optimizes rumen health and ensures consistent performance. KEENAN mixer wagons are fitted with InTouch, a live review feed management technology, which provides real-time monitoring and optimization of herd health, ration formulation, weight gains/yield and costs. Global results show an average increase of 200 grams per head per day in beef live weight gain and a 16 percent increase in milk production, all achieved with less feed.
“The simplicity of InTouch has been key to its success,” said Robert Walker, CEO of KEENAN. “The weigh box on the side of the mixer wagon is very intuitive and simple to use. It tells the farmer step by step what feed mix to put in the machine and then records the actual totals. Variation in diet can be quickly identified, assessed and corrected by a skilled team of nutritionists who manage the InTouch system. If something goes wrong or there is a deterioration in animal performance, the farmer is alerted, and our nutritionist changes the diet.”
KEENAN’s partnership with Ontario Harvestore will help ensure that producers working with KEENAN have the highest level of access to support, service and the dedicated expertise of the KEENAN team.
“What made us decide to partner with KEENAN was the reliability, durability and ease of maintenance of the machines,” said Chris Kelly, communications and marketing director for Ontario Harvestore. “We are committed to providing innovative solutions to our customers and are proud to offer KEENAN mixer wagons as one of our premium products.”
