Thompson & Redwood (T&R) is a stockfeed manufacturer in Perth, centrally situated to Western Australia’s grain regions. Our Upper Swan stockfeed plant has been operating since 1985 and produces over 90 different product lines for the Australian and export animal industries. These include steam rolled grains, gristed and whole grains, mueslis and pelletised products, as well as an extensive range of birdseed mixes. With 30 staff, two grain storages in the Wheatbelt and three mills across WA, we’re able to yield over 50,000 tonnes of grain and seed each year.
A business built on farming and family
Owned and run by families with farming and agriculture backgrounds, T&R is driven by relationships – with the farmers who supply our grain and with the customers who buy our stockfeed. When you have staff who have been with the company since commencement and contracts that span decades you know you’re in business for the right reasons. The current owners are old friends and business partners who genuinely believe that giving back to the community is the best gauge of commercial success.
The health of your animals is our priority
We understand that the health and performance of your animals is your priority – it’s ours too. All T&R products are developed by qualified nutritionists to meet the dietary requirements of the equine, livestock and specialty animal industries. Over the years, we’ve worked hand-in-hand with both commercial and domestic customers and our veterinary team to develop recipes formulated to industry specifications. We test all new products on our animals to feel confident yours will love them too.
