History of KEENAN

1st KEENAN Feeder

The KEENAN story goes back to the 1960s, with the start of the development of the KEENAN mixer wagon by farmer, engineer and innovator, Richard Keenan, a “reliable machine capable of handling the toughest feeding ingredients.”

Since then, KEENAN has gone on to become one of the world’s foremost livestock-feeding experts.

The award-winning company founded in 1979, which has its headquarters in Co. Carlow, Ireland, initially only produced mixer wagons, but has since developed a comprehensive nutrition support programme, meeting the increasingly demanding needs of dairy and beef farmers worldwide.

By integrating the KEENAN Klassik Mixer Wagon with the advanced Macro-Nutrition programme, farmers have available to them a System that increases both animal health and profitability, reduces labour and creates long-term farm profits.

Today, KEENAN has wholly-owned subsidiaries in Australia, Denmark, France, Germany, Sweden, UK, USA and distributors in Belgium, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Slovakia and South Africa.


The company’s success story is founded as much on its reputation for service and customer satisfaction, as on the mixing performance, long life and reliability of the KEENAN Mixer Wagon itself.


KEENAN have been operating to ISO 9002 International Quality Standards since 1993, and is committed to the implementation of quality business principles in all of its activities.
