Nutrition firm Muscatine Foods announced it has united its livestock and pet nutrition subsidiary companies to form Kent Nutrition Group Inc. The group will have two divisions: the feed division will focus on products and services for commercial producers, horse owners, and “lifestyle” farmers, while the pet division will develop products for dog and cat owners, small animal enthusiasts and birders.


The group replaces subsidiary companies Blue Seal Feeds Inc., Kent Feeds Inc. and its Evergreen Mills, which operated independently geographic U.S. regions. The new feed division will be led by Rich Dwyer, who was president of Kent Feeds, while the new pet division will be led by Kevin Fields, former president of Blue Seal Feeds.
