Hardy Animal Nutrition
Hardy Animal Nutrition (HAN) develops and manufactures natural animal feed ingredients for the dairy, poultry and swine industries. We create these products using our patented process uniquely refined vegetable and animal-based, fats and oils from sustainable resources.
No company surpasses HAN’s ability to effectively custom-make animal feed ingredients from rigorously tested co-products. Our versatile plant is capable of running both stand-alone and integrated processes, which allows us to manufacture the highest-value feed supplements.
Hardy Animal Nutrition is the back end of our diverse production facility, which is located on 25 acres in Painesville Township, Ohio. In 2010, we invested several million dollars into the construction of our first one-of-a-kind prill tower facility for the production of dry animal feed ingredients.
After an additional multimillion-dollar investment in 2013, HAN launched another unique prill tower with upgraded and expanded capabilities to manufacture a variety of products, including exclusive varieties of animal feed ingredients.
The new 60,000+ square-foot operation allows us to bulk-load higher-quality products into trucks in record time and to house massive product inventory. The prill facility continues to generate record volumes of materials and poises us for ongoing diversity, flexibility and high-growth in natural products development.

Increased capacity for custom-blended products
Opportunity to make new, custom brands
Ability to run plant 24/7, in hot or cold weather
Real-time monitoring of operating variables
On-demand product fulfillment
Added processing options
