About Nobis Agri Science

Nobis Agri Science was born out of the experience and passion of its founder, Terry Nobis, who started on the family dairy farm. The business grew with the addition of his son, Ben Nobis, who brought critical business and accounting expertise to complement the team. Ben and Terry, along with an impressive team of ruminant nutritionists, feed production associates, and customer service, have built the business to be an award winning, market leader in the Midwest.

The business has grown, but the values have remained consistent – bringing innovative, progressive solutions to the dairy customers, focused on the success of the dairy business owner.
