AB Neo completes takeover Czech feed company

AB Neo, a division of AB Agri Ltd (UK) completed the acquisition of Bodit Tachov Sro, a Czech company specialising in the production and distribution of neonatal and peri/post-partum feeds and supplements.

The company’s activities are in line with AB Neo, which focuses on products for the neonate and maternal lifestages. After the acquisition, the Czech business will continue to trade as Bodit and will facilitate the growth and development of the AB Neo portfolio of specialist neonate products. Josef Rous of Bodit will join the AB Neo team as Technical Director (Ruminants).

Malcolm Beaton, General Manager of AB Neo who has overseen the acquisition said, “AB Neo has been working with Bodit for several years. It is a great business in its own right that also provides us with many new opportunities in our neonate and maternal space as their ability and approach is completely aligned to the AB Neo philosophy. I see the acquisition as a significant step on our journey to further growing a first-class business focused on helping farmers deliver lifetime performance through neonates.”
