Under new management
Agricon Products is now under new management and back in full swing, with new Managing Director James Dickson and Partner Todd Wilshire.
James and Todd bring more than 40 years of experience to the new venture. James has been working with some of Australia’s biggest agricultural suppliers and pastoralists for more than 20 years and has now taken on the role of heading up day to day operations.
Agricon Products is one of the most diverse supplement suppliers in the industry and customers can continue to expect the same quality products and service they’ve relied on for more than 30 years.
In the mid 1960s young Harry Hornbuckle graduated from the University of Queensland with a degree in Veterinary Science. His career commenced with seven years as the senior nutritionist with one of Queensland’s largest feedmills formulating rations for the stock feed industry. He then entered business on his own behalf operating as a nutrition consultant to several mills. Private practice was Harry’s next venture and he spent six years terrorising tom cats, acting as a midwife to distressed cows and pregnancy testing mares.
About this time, Harry could see a need for a specialist nutrition supplement manufacturer in Southern Queensland and Agricon Products came into being in March 1982. Harry set out to formulate, manufacture, and sell a range of quality nutrition products, and today Agricon continues to operate to this principle.
Today, as Agricon is celebrating past its 30th year, several of the original formulations are still in production. Testimony to the quality of the formulation and production. With little spent on advertising it is worth noting that Agricon’s products are now sold from Hughenden in North Queensland to Huonville in Southern Tasmania. Agricon knows that the best advertising is word of mouth from satisfied users.
