Who we are.

Barentz Animal Nutrition, a leading distributor of high-quality animal feed ingredients, remains true to our founding ideals; ideals that continue to be the driving force behind our commitment to the highest product quality, exceptional value, and best in class customer service.

We have been a leading U.S. distributor of high-quality animal feed ingredients since our beginning. Over the course of time, our business has grown and evolved into the multi-faceted corporation of today. We have proudly expanded our offerings to include nutritional and functional feed additives (DCAD and enzymes) along with our industrial, fertilizer, and ice melt products while continuing to build long-term relationships with our customers and suppliers.

Our focus on production automation and strong supply chain has provided a long history of stability through economic and commodity cycles. We enjoy a strategic access to river, rail and road transportation which allows for extensive domestic and international distribution to better serve our customers.

We look forward to showing you how these strengths will work for you! Click here to contact us.
