AusFarm Nutrition Products was established in 2006 in recognition that supply of feed supplements and nutritional services to farmers was limited. During one of the longest droughts experienced in our lifetime, Dr. Paul Meggison, founder and director of AusFarm Nutrition Products, identified a specific need in the market for mineral and protein supplementation to assist producers with maintaining their breeding stock on poor quality dry feed. This is when StockGro-HiPro was created and manufactured in a tiny production facility in Bomen.
For the next three years of drought, StockGro-HiPro accounted for around 99% of ANP sales. Jump forward to today, now ANP manufacture and market over 30 different brands of granular and liquid feed supplements designed to correct a large range of nutritional deficiencies in livestock.
The MISSION of the company is to supply high quality feed supplements and up to date technical advice to the livestock industry to help livestock farmers produce their best animals every year.

Experience in the stock feed industry tells us that successful companies focus on quality control and assurance (QC & A). This quality also manifests itself in the quality of livestock and the image of our farmer customers. ANP’s QC & A spans well beyond our comprehensive manufacturing procedures to selective raw material sourcing, using the right equipment, preventative maintenance, packaging, labelling and delivery.
ANP has worked tirelessly to formalise these efforts by attaining (2016) and maintaining the standards demanded by the Feedsafe® accreditation. FeedSafe® is a state and federal government endorsed code of practice that defines the minimum standards for the manufacture and sale of feeds and supplementary products in the livestock industry. Simply put; the FeedSafe® accreditation helps us ensure that the feed supplements that you feed are safe, reliable and of good quality.
