Zeigler Brothers, Inc. has been providing high quality foods for zoos, nurseries, hatcheries, and more! Zeigler Bros. has been producing foods with aquatic species, and today devotes significant research and development toward aquatic animal nutrition. These efforts have resulted in the development of specialized feeds for reproductive improvement, microcapsulated liquid foods for fish larvae, and highly digestible diets utilizing chelated minerals and stabilized vitamins to help increase nutritional bioavailability. All Zeigler Aquatic Research Diets utilize the latest technologies to help improve fecundity and overall fish health under laboratory tank conditions. Trials have demonstrated that embryo production can be increased significantly in Zebrafish fed the Zeigler Diet.
Founded in 1935 by brothers Ty and Leroy Zeigler, the company originated as a local producer of poultry and livestock feeds. In 1967, Dr. Thomas Zeigler (son of Leroy) assumed leadership as President and changed the strategic direction from commodity feeds to emphasis on research and development of specialty animal and aquatic diets.
Today, as Zeigler® embarks on its 3rd generation of leadership, the company continues to develop new and innovative technologies for specialty markets. Utilizing core competencies in R&D, nutritional formulation, and process engineering, Zeigler® currently manufactures over 300 products and exports to over 50 countries around the world.
VpakTM (Vitality pak) is an all-natural, highly purified, nutritional additive that has been shown to improve survivability and production yields in cultured species. Both field and laboratory trials have demonstrated increased disease resistance when animals were fed diets supplemented with VpakTM. VpakTM contains no antibiotics and is manufactured according to ISO 9001:2008 quality guidelines to help assure consistent, high-quality, and traceability.
Zeigler® has 2 manufacturing facilities located in south-central Pennsylvania and one franchise located in Mexico. Both U.S. facilities utilize ISO-9001:2008 quality guidelines and both are certified for organic feed production.
