Oxbow Animal Health

oxbowClub members and guests had the great opportunity to hear from John Miller about the history of his fifth generation farm in Murdock, NE at the April Nebraska Agribusiness Club meeting.

During this time, hay was the lifeblood from which they grew and nurtured their animals. It was important that every harvest meet the absolute highest standards. Out of that commitment grew the foundation of Oxbow Animal Health. Miller has created an internationally-recognized brand that has become the most trusted name in small animal nutrition, from loyal customers to top veterinarians.

Enjoy this video that John wanted the Club to see:
