Achance meeting of a US inventor, with a patent for hardening molasses, and one of Ireland's leading mineral nutritionists lead to the setting up of Uniblock almost 35 years ago. Now part of the Rumenco group we are Ireland's largest producer of buckets under the Uniblock, Lifeline and Mixrite brands. All production is carried out at our manufacturing site in Dundalk, Co Louth. Uniblock has the largest range of buckets so farmers can buy a specific product for a particular event in the animal's life. By offering health promoting ingredients as well as minerals farmers get a better return on their investment. Along with this patented process for hardening molasses, now used by all molassed mineral block manufacturers, Uniblock has patented its horse mineral lick and the Lifeline range of colostrum boosting pre calving and lambing treatments.

We work closely with University College Dublin's school of Agriculture and the Irish advisory service Teagasc. Seven post graduate students have investigated a range of subjects including copper supplementation of cattle, mineral and energy requirements in ewes and mineral supplementation of horses at grass. We have also worked with UK research units looking at colostrum quality in ewes. Uniblock was the first mineral company in Ireland to attain UFAS certification and our horse products are NOPS certified for extra insurance. Uniblock has been supported through it development by Enterprise Ireland and it forerunners.
