We are the oldest family owned and operated salt & lick block manufacturers in Australia
In 1949, just west of Parramatta, Norman Olsson made the first pressed multi-nutrient block in Australia. This is Olsson Industries.
Norman Olsson had left the family ice business and bought a salt press to make salt blocks for sheep during the drought of the late 1940's. The first Olsson's Calcium Molasses pressed salt block was made in 1949- it was the forerunner of all multi-nutrient blocks made in Australia from that time on.
Today we are Australia's most innovative ruminant supplement manufacturer in block form, manufacturing 20, 40, 100 and even 1000kg blocks.
Every year, Olsson’s sponsor hundreds of free ruminant nutrition seminars all over Australia for the purpose of educating the grazier in better livestock nutrition. Olsson’s also provide a FreeCall Nutritional Advisory Line (FreeCall: 1800 804 096) for graziers to call and receive free advice on feeding programs and problems that they might have with their livestock.
While striving to remain viable in an extremely competitive industry, Olsson’s have not ignored their responsibility to the environment. Olsson’s block boxes are now made from 100% recycled, unbleached cardboard which livestock are able to eat and digest, and we are committed to developing better and greener products and methods of packaging.
