ABOUT

TRAC PERFORMANCE MINERALS or TPM
as it is commonly referred to, is an extension of TOTAL RESULT AG CONSULTING,
a family owned business operating in Millicent, South Australia.


The founders, Tom and Rebecca Thorn, both have an extensive understanding of the Australian Livestock Industry with a practical/hands-on work history. From dairy farm hands to owner operators of a 400-cow family farm, they move from a practical portfolio to over 30 year combined experience at an executive level in the field of farm business management and nutrition services specializing in large herd nutrition, financial analysis and business management consulting.


It is from this base an extensive knowledge of ruminant animals and mineral supplements optimising uptake of key nutritional requirements was developed and saw the need to expand the business to a wider spectrum of the livestock industry.


So after 3 years finessing the industry with their second to none consulting service,
TRAC Performance Minerals was formed in 2009 offering not only second to none consulting service but now quality, dependable and performance based minerals supplements for the dairy, beef & sheep markets.
