New Kinetic Performance Dog Food line to be distributed by Hubbard Feeds

Product line to debut at National Pheasant Fest 2014 Expo in Milwaukee, WI

Mankato, MN, February 11, 2014 – 3 Amigos Nutrition Group, LLC, a developer and manufacturer of animal health and nutrition products, today announced an agreement with Hubbard Feeds, Inc., a division of Ridley, Inc., Mankato, MN and one of the largest commercial animal nutrition businesses in North America, for the distribution of its Kinetic™ line of performance dog food products. With shipments starting this spring, the Kinetic™ line of products for active, working and sporting dogs will be available through the Hubbard distribution network including twenty US distribution centers and more than 2,200 independent dealers.

"We’re extremely pleased to add the Kinetic™ line to our existing portfolio of Hubbard® Life pet foods," said Randy Raub, Director of Research and Marketing for Hubbard. "The brand is a perfect fit for both our service area and our dealer network. Kinetic™ provides us with a unique super premium line to meet the needs of performance dogs like hunting, herding and mushing dogs."

Kinetic™ performance dog food products feature a full line of performance foods specifically developed to meet the dietary requirements of highly active working, sporting and competition dogs. Made without corn, wheat or soy, each of the four Kinetic™ formulas are created to meet the elevated requirements of extremely active dogs for energy, endurance, recovery and digestive health. In addition, all products in the Kinetic™ line are made with a common ingredient profile to enable stress-free transitions from one formula to another during periods requiring higher or lower caloric intake.

"After years of testing and refining these formulas with breeders, trainers and competitors, we’ve been looking forward to this day for a long time," added John Howard, Managing Principal for 3 Amigos. "Hubbard has nearly 100 years of experience in the development, manufacturing and selling of animal nutrition products, so we feel like it would be pretty tough to find a better partner to help us in selling and marketing the Kinetic™ line."

Kinetic™ performance dog food is a product of 3 Amigos Nutrition Group, a limited liability company based in Cincinnati, Ohio, that develops and markets animal health and nutrition products. After decades of experience with sporting dogs and other companion animals, providing products for animal health and nutrition is more a labor of love than work for 3 Amigos. Additional information on the Kinetic™ performance dog food line can be found on their website at www.kineticdogfood.com.

Great Success with Hubbard® Life Horse Feeds. The Results Speak for Themselves!

Download the full testimonial

Rogena Richard of Middleburg, Pennsylvania has been seeing great success with Hubbard® Life Horse Feeds.  Her results speak for themselves!


“I switched to Hubbard® Life Horse Feed in December 2011 from another "leading feed brand" and my horses have bloomed.


My main barrel horse looks much, much better and he's running at the top of his game on the Hubbard® Life Performance pellets. He qualified me for my first PRCA First Frontier Circuit Finals in January even with a month off due to injury. I have now had two horses I bought since I switched, one severely underweight and one not quite where he should be, they both bloomed on the Hubbard® Life Performance pellets as well. I credit Hubbard to a lot of my success in 2012 and 2013 because my horses look and feel great and that's always my main priority!


I have two weanlings and two brood mares as well who look fantastic on the Hubbard® Life Summit®, and also a boarder who switched from another "leading brand" to the Hubbard® Life Senior pellets.  Within two weeks her mare got a shiny soft coat and started gaining weight.


Thanks again, Hubbard, for an outstanding product! I promote it every chance I get!”
