Evolution of Connolly's RED MILLS
Our commitment to innovation over our many years of high-quality equine feed production has placed Connolly’s RED MILLS at the forefront of the industry and allowed us to expand our roots globally.
With the horse at the center of the business and a long-standing history within the farming community, the Connolly family has witnessed significant growth over our many generations of equine feed production. What began as a humble mill in the heart of County Kilkenny, South-East Ireland later grew to become an industry-leading global brand within the United States and beyond, through our unwavering commitment to innovation, quality and the sharing of our equine expertise with our customers while listening to their needs.
Growing from a local mill in South-East Ireland to a global brand available in over 80 countries worldwide
Connolly's RED MILLS is renowned for its high-performance animal feed solutions
Our origins in the farming region of County Kilkenny, in South East Ireland, where our mill has operated since 1908, has made it possible for us to deliver product excellence throughout our years of business growth.
The Connolly’s RED MILLS brand has become a pioneer in the industry with a shared passion for the care of the horses that are owned by our valued customers. Placing the horse at the center of everything we do, our dedication to equine well-being and health is represented by our extensive range of high-quality products which undergo rigorous testing at our onsite laboratories, ensuring the same level of quality is delivered from our farm to your winning post in the United States of America.
Being able to carry our brand throughout decades of natural and socio-economic challenges is attributed to the innovation of the five generations of Connollys who have ensured we remain a self-sustaining brand. We maintain our competitive edge in the agricultural, and pet and animal feed industry since Michael Connolly’s purchase of the famous mill in Goresbridge, County Kilkenny, from where we continue to grow our own quality raw materials for production and supply today. Our local roots have grown to become an international footprint across more than 80 countries worldwide as a leading supplier to trusting global trainers and owners.
