Ontario Harvestore Named Canadian
KEENAN Equipment Parts Distributor
[BORRIS, Ireland] KEENAN, an Alltech company, is pleased to announce Ontario Harvestore Systems as its official distributor for spare parts across all of Canada. Ontario Harvestore Systems has been an official KEENAN Equipment dealer for the past three years for Ontario, bringing the proven nutritional benefits of KEENAN’s range of mixers to farmers across the Province. They will continue in this capacity in addition to the new parts distributorship agreement.
Like KEENAN, Harvestore Systems has a long history of innovation having started over 70 years ago when they revolutionized livestock feed with the introduction of Harvestore glass-fused-to-steel silos to better manage corn and foliage. Not only did this system impress by how well it worked, but also these robust silos have stood the test of time as many are still in operation today. Finding innovative solutions for today’s farmers is what makes KEENAN and Ontario Harvestore Systems an excellent partnership.
Curtis McLean, General Manager of Ontario Harvestore Systems looks forward to the road ahead, “We are delighted to further enhance our reputation of engineering excellence, by becoming the exclusive KEENAN parts distributor, which similar to our own products, are manufactured by a dedicated team committed to quality. Ensuring systems run at peak efficiency is something we take very seriously.”
In their role as official distributors for KEENAN, Ontario Harvestore Systems will import and distribute parts to the extensive dealer and service network which looks after KEENAN customers across Canada. This includes supplying parts for the KEENAN line of Mechfiber and Self-Propelled mixers.
Matt Higgins, General Manager of KEENAN, said the fit was an obvious one, “As part of our Planet of PlentyTM mission, it is important to partner with companies who have similar green credentials. KEENAN provide precision diet feeding technology to optimally mix and prepare feed for maximum animal performance. This results in reduced methane production per litre of milk. The fact that Ontario Harvestore Systems are known for their solutions for environmental stewardship was not lost on us”.
HARVESTORE® built its reputation on providing dairy farms and other livestock operations with superior feed storage structures. For years, producers using HARVESTORE silos oxygen-limiting technology have seen the freshness of the haylage and high moisture corn coming from the unloader, the limited spoilage and dry matter loss, and the high palatability that usually results in greater efficiency. Many farmers who own both HARVESTORE silos and bags or bunkers choose to store their best forage and feed their top producers from HARVESTORE units. That’s because forage quality influences milk production, reproduction efficiency and profits. HARVESTORE silos have been proven to be the best storage system to preserve forage quality.
- Minimal feed storage losses compared to other storage methods
- High quality fermented feed all year long with bottom unloading from the HARVESTORE
- Fast feed out delivery with XL Unloaders
- Ability to fully automate the feeding process with Harvestore
