Livestock Feedmatch and Bell’s Livestock Feeds were originally divisions of Ontario Livestock Feed Supplements Ltd., incorporated in 1978 when Bell’s became a wholly owned Canadian Company. Bell’s had been supplying vitamin and mineral premixes and supplements to farmers since 1933.
Feedmatch is a private company owned by David and Beatriz Gosling. Dave Gosling, a pharmacist, came to Canada from Great Britain in 1972 and acquired the company in 1982. Feedmatch was created in 1990 and David and Beatriz instigated the policy, “Tell us exactly what you want… and consider it done.” Feedmatch has grown steadily, predominantly in the Ontario beef feeding sector, utilizing custom, on-farm premix programs. The company is based in New Hamburg, Ontario.
In February of 2016, Masterfeeds acquired 100% of the shares of Keymatch Corporation (operating as Feedmatch, one of Ontario’s leading premix companies). Feedmatch animal premix production will now take place at the Masterfeeds premix plant (Daco Animal Nutrition) in Stratford, Ontario. Customers will continue to be supplied with existing formulations under the Feedmatch brand, serviced by their current Feedmatch representatives.
All Feedmatch sales, nutrition and support personnel will be joining Masterfeeds and will continue to be led by Dave Gosling, founder of Feedmatch, based at the Stratford plant.
