NAVASOTA, TX, May 09, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Thomas Moore Feed, a premier family-owned horse, livestock and birdseed feed producer, recently forged an alliance with Kentucky Equine Research (KER), an internationally acclaimed equine nutrition and exercise physiology research and consultation company serving both horse owners and the feed industry.
The alliance will marry the feed production and customer service strengths of Thomas Moore Feed with the profile, credibility and technical expertise of KER to produce and support a premium line of equine feeds developed specifically for the horses of eastern and central Texas.
Located in the fertile Brazos River Valley, Thomas Moore Feed is well known for producing quality feeds. The company has demonstrated its commitment to Texas horsemen through recent mill renovations, enhanced quality control procedures, and the development of an innovative, locally grown forage product. Moore Safe Forage Technology provides a high-quality, more natural source of digestible fiber within its new Moore Natural line of horse feeds.
"Partnering with KER, the world leaders in equine nutrition, was the next logical step," explained Matt Moore, president of Thomas Moore Feed, "We wanted to ensure our clients had access to the best nutrition products and services they could find anywhere in the world."
Not only will horse owners have access to a new line of products fortified with KER's research-based micronutrient blends, but consumers can also utilize innovative software to help craft individual diets for every horse in their barn regardless of life stage. In addition, the partnership allows Thomas Moore Feed to leverage KER's digital outreach platforms, Equinews.com and The Weekly Feed e-newsletter, to better inform and educate Texas horsemen and aid them in finding the appropriate Moore Natural nutrition solutions for their horses. Several Moore Natural formulas are offered to meet the specific needs of individual animals and tailor-made ration recommendations can be obtained for any horse from the Moore Natural MicroSteed Online Ration Wizard.
"My passion, and our company goal, is to develop the highest quality horse feed available and be the leader in our market. We want to be associated with the best in the business, and we found that in KER. The experts at KER are helping us develop new products with their cutting-edge research; horses will reap the benefits and their owners will see the results," Moore said.
KER has an impressive track record with more than 25 years of consultation experience with feed manufacturers on six continents. As an industry leader, it has been involved in providing nutrition products and advice at numerous Olympics and World Equestrian Games.
"We saw a promising partner in Thomas Moore Feed because of its desire to be on the cutting edge, continually elevating its standards and focusing on offering locally produced, high-quality feed and nutrition expertise in its area," KER founder and president Joe Pagan, Ph.D., said. "This really resonates with KER's mission to help horsemen and the feed industry produce healthier, more athletic horses. We are pleased to partner with a proactive, unique and respected regional feed manufacturer in an area with such a strong reputation for producing world-class horses."
Horse owners will be pleased to know the same nutritional technologies that fuel Olympic horses will be available to the horses they love. Additionally, horse owners have the peace of mind knowing that the company is taking that extra step to produce healthy, safe feed for their horses, as Thomas Moore Feed's milling facility is in the final process of enacting advanced quality-control initiatives to obtain ISO 9001 certification.
"Our name means something in these parts, and we have a passion for making the best quality feed you cannot get anywhere else," Moore said. "I am personally excited to be working with the team at KER. When I attended the company's nutrition conference, it spoke volumes to me that KER has sustained long-standing business relationships and has supported a standard of excellence for decades. This is a unique and exciting opportunity for those that own and love horses in Texas as much as I do."
