Who we are

Established in Scotland, the heart of UK agriculture, Harbro has been supplying farmers with quality livestock nutrition since 1977, focused on improving animal performance and its customers’ profitability.

Privately owned, the business trades throughout the UK and has developed an increasingly strong export market through its international division. With a manufacturing capacity of 280,000 tonnes from sites based in Scotland and England, the business produces high quality livestock feeds for beef, sheep, dairy, pig and poultry.

Running alongside its manufacturing prowess, we also offer a convenient and efficient on-farm mobile milling, mixing and processing service, which allows farmers to produce sustainable diets, utilising home grown cereals. With a fleet of vehicles capable of producing both ruminant and mono-gastric diets, this flexible and efficient service is available across the UK, supported by team of trained operators, livestock specialists and nutritionists.

Our network of Harbro Country Stores are located throughout Scotland from the Borders to Shetland supplying both the farming and wider rural community with animal health products, farming supplies, equestrian, pet food, wild bird feed and everything required for rural life.

As a progressive company known for bringing innovative, performance-led nutrition products to the market, we are renowned for on-farm nutritional services and technical knowledge.

Investing heavily in technical resource and expertise, we have one of the largest team of degree and PhD qualified nutritionists and scientists in UK agriculture. Strong links with universities and research initiatives ensures the business is involved in a number of research projects with partners throughout the UK and Europe.

As part of our quality commitment we work to a number of key accreditation including UFAS, NAAC, TASCC, FIAS and OF&G. We are also members of the British Equestrian Trade Association, United Farmers, RoSPA and BSC.

Working with farmers, processors, retailers, nutritionists, consultants and research organisations allows us to be actively involved with the whole supply chain and have a comprehensive understanding of the agricultural industry in the UK and overseas.

With a team of 500 employees covering production, procurement, logistics, customer service, finance, HR, operations, sales and marketing, commercial, retail and nutrition, the business has forged a reputation as one of the UK’s leading agricultural and rural businesses.

The Harbro Group also includes Strathclyde Nutrition Ltd, which contract manufactures animal feed buckets and blocks and Transpan (Scotland) Ltd.

We are also able to supply international and wholesale customers.
