J.D. Heiskell & Co. Acquires 50% Stake in Golden State Feed and Grain From Purina Animal Nutrition

Date Posted: March 5, 2013

Tulare, CA—J.D. Heiskell & Co. announced March 5 that it has purchased the 50% interest in Golden State Feed & Grain (GSF&G) held by Purina Animal Nutrition, its partner in that joint venture since the inception of the business in August of 2010.

Golden State Feed & Grain serves livestock producers and dairy farmers in California with mixed feeds, rolled grains, mineral mixes, commodity blends and a variety of animal health and nutrition products.

Heiskell plans to dissolve the GSF&G brand over the coming months and will transition all employees and products into the current J.D. Heiskell & Company business platform in California.

Customers and vendors should notice little change in the business relationship they have had with GSF&G other than the name of the business.

Rick Bowen, the current General Manager for the venture, will continue to serve in the same capacity for Heiskell.

"We want to thank the Purina Animal Nutrition team for their support and professionalism as a partner during the life of the business venture," said Heiskell President and CEO Ryan Pellett.

"In addition we are excited about the loyal and committed group of employees that create excellence daily at GSF&G and look forward to having them as members of the Heiskell team going forward."
