Business Profile: Renaissance Nutrition


ROARING SPRING, Pa. — In over 23 years, Renaissance Nutrition has become the largest nutrition and premix manufacturing business in the Northeast, and continues to rapidly expand in the Midwest.

The company is committed to providing livestock producers with quality products, resources and information needed to improve both productivity and profitability.

Its highly-qualified nutritional consultants have become a part of the culture for agriculture in the northeast. They work with dairy and livestock producers on all size farms and with all species, providing up-to-date nutritional input, balanced rationing, health care, farm management and agronomic advice that can make a positive difference.

Founded in 1985 by Craig Brown and headquartered in Roaring Spring, Pa., the company was established on the principles of offering producers the very best products and services at reasonable prices, while optimizing use of homegrown forages and feeds.

The company does not “sell to sell.” Their consultants help producers determine what products and ingredients are necessary to ensure a balanced ration that can make a difference and provide needed and desired results.

“Renaissance” means “new birth,” and it was Brown’s determination that the company become the beginning of a return to customer-oriented service in the nutrition and premix business.

In recent years the company has seen tremendous growth and development, adding to its in-house staff of nutritional experts, expanding its agronomy applications, increasing sales and consulting staff in the field, adding to manufacturing, warehousing and trucking capabilities, and moving forward into the geographic areas of Michigan, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, Wisconsin and beyond.

Renaissance manufactures and distributes a complete line of nutritional supplements for dairy and beef cattle, as well as swine, sheep, horses and poultry.

The majority of its business is products and services for dairy and beef. Products are marketed in bags, super sacks, tubs and bulk.

Nutritional consulting is the backbone of the Renaissance team. Consultants maintain personal contact with customers and prospects, visiting thousands of farms in their market areas annually and bringing the most up-to-date and advanced information possible to producers.

Their goal is to bring every producer the best knowledge and products possible.

Additionally, Renaissance has developed expertise in forage production through its agronomy services, working closely with several seed companies to provide research-tested corn hybrids that offer improved digestibility.

A supply of quality grasses, alfalfas and small grain seeds is also available.

Quality, research-tested preservatives and inoculants are also available to help producers maintain the nutritional content of ensiled and baled forages, aiding fermentation, and reducing spoilage and mold growth.

The company offers customized programs that include farm management information and advice, professional nutritional consultation and ration balancing, herd profiles, body condition scoring, forage management and sampling, biosecurity assistance, top quality products and a team that stands solidly behind its customers.

The company firmly believes that being on top of current advancements and research can benefit producers through improving productivity and profitability.

Renaissance does not offer an online ordering service, since it considers the consultant-producer relationship to be an essential part of the service they seek to provide.

Renaissance maintains consultants from New England to Florida and west to Wisconsin, Iowa and Missouri. Visit for more details.
