 Vitalix® Inc, an American owned and family operated company that specializes in low moisture cooked molasses supplement tubs, announced Monday, Oct 4, 2021, that it has acquired Midcontinent Livestock Supplements Inc. with manufacturing locations in Moberly, MO, Valley Mills, TX and Ellendale, ND.

Established in 1989, Vitalix has been at the forefront of the self-fed low moisture tub business, focused on delivering consistent supplemental nutrition to primarily cattle producers, but also nearly all other livestock species, including small ruminants such as sheep and goats, dairy cattle and equine.  Vitalix manufactures and markets self-fed low moisture tub supplements from facilities located in Quincy, WA, Wilton, IA and Sidney, NE.

“Midcontinent Livestock Supplements (MLS Tubs) is a well-known and highly respected low moisture supplement tub brand across many cattle producing areas of the United States,” said Greg Olson, Founder and President of Vitalix Inc. “This Acquisition is more of a merger of two American family owned and managed companies with deep roots in production agriculture where both organizations possess an unrivaled vigilance in focusing on customer needs in a relentlessly competitive environment to ensure producer profitability” added Olson.

In addition to being a family-owned business with similar industry passion, approach and dedication to customer service; the acquisition of MLS facilities will provide a wider-reaching manufacturing footprint that can further improve the response to timely customer demands while holding the line on transportation costs with six manufacturing locations between the two.

Both companies are committed to carrying on the legacies their founders have created. Customers of both Vitalix and MLS will continue to see both brands actively expanding in the marketplace. The products producers have come to know and trust will continue on. Vitalix and MLS are still as committed as ever to the highest quality standards in the manufacturing of the most consistent, controlled consumption low moisture tubs in the marketplace.
