Kewpie Stockfeeds Pty Ltd was formed in June 1968, with this year, 2018 celebrating 50 years of servicing rural families and businesses with Quality Assured finished feed and a large merchandise range.
Kewpie Stockfeeds was formed in 1968 from the demand from piggeries in the South Burnett area requiring ready mixed stockfeed. The Woltmann Brothers decided to enter the stockfeed milling business more seriously, resulting in the purchase of the present site in Youngman Street, Kingaroy and construction of the present mill complex commenced.
As production increased with demand in the area for formulated feeds, it became necessary to provide more grain storage capacity and hence an additional building was constructed with a capacity for approximately 3500 tonnes increasing the total grain storage capacity in the mill area to approximately 5100 tonnes.
The mill manufacturer specially formulated bagged and bulk feeds for cattle, pigs, poultry, sheep, goat and horses. In addition to bagged feed Kewpie Stockfeeds have two rural supplies and merchandise outlets. One located in Kingaroy servicing Queensland and northern NSW and Monto servicing the North Burnett region through to Bundaberg and Rockhampton.
