Hubbard Feeds Announces Ionophore-Free Plant Transition


Edited Press Release

Hubbard’s Lancaster, Pennsylvania, facility will be one of few on the East Coast to offer exclusive ionophore-free production

[MANKATO, Minn.] – Furthering their commitment to their equine customers, Hubbard Feeds has begun transitioning their Lancaster, Pennsylvania, plant to a 100% ionophore-free facility. This comes on the heels of the recent successful conversion of the company’s Worthington, Minnesota, plant to ionophore-free production.

“Feed and manufacturing safety are of the utmost importance to us,” said Kevin Levi, president of Hubbard Feeds. “We understand that horse owners, much like any of our other customers, want peace of mind when it comes to buying their feed. As our equine business continues to expand, we have recognized the value in offering this level of reassurance to our growing customer base, and we want to invest in their confidence.”

Hubbard began taking steps to complete this conversion in the fall of 2021 and plans to have 100% ionophore-free production in place no later than Jan. 1, 2022. The company is excited to offer further trust in their Summit® and Cool Command® branded horse feeds, among other products.

Hubbard Feeds will continue to manufacture non-medicated swine feeds at their Lancaster, Pennsylvania, facility. Current customers requiring ionophore-inclusive feeds will receive their feeds through a local contract manufacturing partner utilizing Hubbard’s proprietary nutrition. Local Hubbard sales representatives will guide customers through this transition.
