Home / About Us

Minerals Direct Ltd is a new business established to bring nutritional horse supplements from one of the largest manufacturers in New Zealand direct to the farm gate without the added cost of the middleman.  

Working with the New Zealand market leader in the manufacture and supply of vitamin and mineral premixes to the animal feed industry, which has MPI approved manufacturing plants in both the North and South Island, Minerals Direct Ltd is committed to delivering quality mineral products at a competitive price direct to the farm gate.

“Off the shelf” standard product formulations are available which will meet a wide range of animal needs across a range of farming situations but where specific mineral issues need addressing, we are able to custom blend a specific product using results from blood or liver tests.

Headed by Chris Newton, an animal nutritionist with over 35 years experience in feed formulation and manufacture in ruminant, mono-gastric and mineral nutrition. The mineral supplements available from MD Ltd are guaranteed to be of the finest quality. Using only quality approved ingredients from MPI approved suppliers with full traceability to ensure accuracy and quality of formulation, you can be confident of receiving a fully approved, quality product. All dairy products are soluble for in-line water medication or can be added to feed ingredients used in a mixer wagon.
