Masterfeeds animal nutrition programs and products, along with our employees, are prepared to meet and exceed customer expectations throughout the entire manufacturing, sales, and support cycle. In 2015, Alltech acquired Masterfeeds and helped accelerate the product innovation pipeline through combined technology, global animal research and on-farm modelling production. Alltech is the only privately held company among the top 10 animal health companies in the world. This is a competitive advantage for Masterfeeds, allowing employees to stay focused on customer needs, innovation, and long-term objectives.
Masterfeeds employs more than 600 dedicated staff and has an extensive dealer network throughout Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario. Our employees and dealers are committed to supporting Canadian agri-business with a wide range of animal nutrition and supports, including bulk and bagged feeds, supplements, blocks and minerals, premixes, organic feeds, as well as ration balancing, profit planning and on-farm consultation production cycle support. Masterfeeds manufacturing and distribution also includes specialty products for professional and recreational horses, smaller-scale hobby farm animals, and dog and cat foods.

We firmly believe agriculture has the greatest potential to shape the future of our planet.
We are inspired by the great challenge the world has presented us — to produce enough safe, nutritious food for all, while caring for our animals, and sustaining our land, air and water for future generations. Our natural resources may be finite, but human ingenuity is infinite.
What started as one company’s vision has become a call for collaboration. As a member of the Alltech family of companies, Masterfeeds is proud to take part in Working Together for a Planet of Plenty™.
Planet of Plenty is a mission to:
- Elevate the agri-food sector. It’s critical we recognize agriculture’s ability to address several of the most significant issues our planet faces — nutrition, human and animal well-being, and the preservation of natural resources. We do this by telling the true, yet little-told, stories about the passionate people who are working within the agri-food sector to create a Planet of Plenty.
- Inspire farmers, ranchers and producers to embrace new technologies, business models and improved farm management practices.
- Create new business models to help our customers and grow our business.
Planet of Plenty is a vision of promise, possibility and positivity for the future. It’s our belief that a world of abundance is achievable, but it will take all of us working together.
It’s a vision that must be led by science, technology and a shared will to make a difference — to plant trees we’ll never see grow.
Sustainability means taking positive action today for the success of tomorrow. It’s a pursuit where there’s always room for improvement… and a new idea.
