Kerber Companies is comprised of several divisions that are dedicated to providing a complete solution to the animal agriculture industry with a focus on the swine industry. We have a long history beginning in 1922 when Fred Kerber purchased a small flour mill in Emmetsburg, Iowa providing products to bakeries and livestock producers as North Iowa Wholesale Co. The passion for feeding livestock lives on through every part of our growing business. Kerber Companies is truly unique, existing today as an independent, regional, family-owned and operated feed manufacturer serving livestock producers in four states.
