Animal Health & Nutrition Company Rebrands As Axiota Animal Health, Creates Dairy Unit


Animal Health & Nutrition Company, a Paine Schwartz Partners portfolio company and the commercial leader in animal health and nutrition product development and commercialization of nutritional health products, today announced that it has rebranded as Axiota Animal Health (“Axiota” or the “Company”).

Formed in 2019 as an animal health and nutrition platform by Paine Schwartz Partners, Axiota serves the cattle industry through its operating companies, MULTIMIN USA and MS Biotec. Axiota represents key features of the products the Company sells and markets globally. The Greek root “Axi” represents proof, and “ota” represents the biological sciences. These concepts are foundational elements of MULTIMIN 90 and Lactipro – the products sold by Axiota. MULTIMIN 90 and Lactipro have been extensively researched and are leading products in the animal health and nutrition segment.

“At Axiota, we provide the industry with scientifically proven products with clear modes of action that are backed by peer-reviewed research and real-world results,” said William (Bill) Weldon, Axiota CEO.

“Our products support cattle during challenging production phases and provide cattle producers consumer-friendly, non-antibiotic products that contribute to market sustainability and have significant growth potential in the U.S. and internationally. Axiota Animal Health represents two significant innovation platforms in injectable trace mineral solutions and rumen native anaerobic bacteria creating exciting opportunities for new products in cattle as well as expansion into other animal species,” said Weldon.

Axiota Animal Health Dairy Team
The Company also announced the creation of the Axiota Animal Health Dairy Team. Led by Jimmy Owens, previously with Elanco Animal Health and Native Microbials, the team will more effectively service and support the Company’s growing group of dairy customers.

“We are excited about the formation of a dedicated dairy team at Axiota, which enables us to expand on the past activities of both companies and provide a coordinated and focused approach to deliver both products to our dairy customers,” said Jimmy Owens, who leads the U.S. Dairy and International Business at Axiota.

“Axiota is the combination of two established business and technology platforms to offer proven, innovative and science-based solutions that help cattle thrive during critical stages of dairy production. With a fully dedicated Dairy Team, we will be able to further deliver for our customers and meet their growing needs,” said Owens.
