KER was founded in 1988 when Joe Pagan, Ph.D. realized that information generated from research was not disseminated to the individuals who needed it most: feed manufacturers and horse owners. Since the company began, filling that void has been a priority for KER.
The company accomplishes this in several ways. First and foremost, it serves as a consultant to feed manufacturers. KER nutritionists work with mill owners and managers to formulate top-quality feeds that complement typical forages found in the locale. KER now works with feed manufacturers on six continents: Australia, Asia, Europe, South America, Africa, and North America.
In 1999, KER set up a second office in the Southern Hemisphere. Located in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, this location serves that entire continent as well as the company’s interests in Asia.
Kentucky Equine Research (KER) makes an array of feeds and specialty nutrition products for horse owners. Included in this product line are unique feeds and supplements. Each product has been carefully formulated to enhance the health and well-being of horses. Well-nourished horses are healthy, sound horses. For optimal nutrition, choose products created by KER.
