More than 70 years ago, C.W. Bloomhall drew on his Iowa farm experience and nearly 40 years working in the grain milling industry to found Diamond V. He discovered that livestock producers could increase production by providing a nutritional solution that increased the efficacy of their feeding program using existing rations.

In 1943, C.W. established Diamond V in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and began manufacturing a unique microbial fermentation product for American livestock producers. Diamond V’s “original” product quickly set the standard for the U.S. feed industry.

In the decades that followed, Diamond V further developed and refined the original proprietary fermentation process, invested in scientific talent and research, and created new proprietary microbial fermentation technology. Diamond V grew to become the world’s largest and most respected manufacturer of microbial fermentation-based products for food animals and companion animals.

In the late 1990s, the extraordinary good health of Diamond V plant employees led to the development of the human product company, Embria® Health Sciences, and the unique human immune-support product EpiCor®.

While Diamond V facilities, research capabilities, manufacturing technologies, technical expertise, product portfolio, and customer services have expanded significantly over the years, the Bloomhall tradition of quality, value, and purpose has been steadfast for three generations. Former president and chief executive office John C. Bloomhall continues to serve the company as Chairman of the Board.

The business practices and culture established at the founding of Diamond V continue today in our focus on science-based research, innovative technology, and unique nutrition and health solutions for customers around the world. Quality in every aspect of what we do is still the cornerstone of Diamond V success.
