The History of Burkmann Nutrition
Burkmann Feeds began operation in 1978. Longtime friends (and University of Kentucky classmates) David Williams and Jerry Germann, purchased what had been a Purina facility in Danville KY and founded their business. When they discussed how to name their new company, the partners decided that merging of parts of their family names made sense. Dr. Williams proposed the Burks name from his mother’s side of the family and they combined that with the last syllable of Jerry Germann’s surname. The result, Burkmann, announced itself loud and clear. Since that time, the growth of Burkmann Feeds has been dramatic and 14 businesses are currently operating under our direction.
The Bowling Green Burkmann plant is unique to the Burkmann family of businesses. We are a specialty manufacturer of high-quality birdseed sold to retailers throughout the United States.
