Agvance was founded in 1989 by Chris Balemi, who comes from a farming family in the Waikato. Very early in his career, Chris identified a need within the dairy industry for mineral blends suitable for dosing through water systems and drenches.
Today, Chris and his sons Joel and Shaun, along with a staff contingent of over 40 people, are successfully helping farmers on a national scale. With factories in both Te Awamutu and Rolleston, Agvance continues to develop scientifically formulated mineral and vitamin supplements for dairy, sheep and goat farmers, sold exclusively through your local vet.
Science has always been a key driver for Chris, Shaun and Joel in delivering the best farming support available. They act on scientific fact, based on years of on-farm experience, in providing mineral and vitamin supplements for optimal animal health.
The drive for farming success includes developing first-to-market, innovative software with products like Agvance Customizer which is a fully-featured feed and mineral formulation program specifically suited to both North and South Island conditions. It has become an exclusive and essential tool for vets and animal nutritionists who deliver highly customised solutions to kiwi farmers nationwide.
Agvance understands that successful farmers want to balance their soils and improve their animal health.
For the last 30 years, Agvance has specialised in the supply of high-quality trace elements customised to the exact requirements of individual dairy cow farms. They have continued to develop specialised blends containing chelated minerals, vitamins, and even amino acids. These targeted solutions have effectively overcome specific deficiencies that lead to poor productivity and animal health.
As a passionate family-run business, you can be sure Agvance is just as invested in your farm’s success as you are.
