Econets… New Millet Venture

Pipestone Flyer

Millet recently welcomed another new business to town. Eco Nets has opened its doors at 5015-45 ave., located west of the corner of Hwy 616 and Hwy 2A. Eco Nets not only has a store front, they also manufacture their product on site.

         Proving that necessity really is the mother of invention, owner Shauna Johnson’s development and perfection of Eco Nets was the answer to the  health concerns of her daughter’s 20 year old mare. After researching metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance, the idea for the Eco Net was born. Not only do the nets satisfy the chewing requirements of the horse, they also reduce the amount of feed consumed by turning what would be one big bite into 5-7 nibbles. This also helps to alleviate problems like ulcers, cribbing, colic, stress and boredom while reducing wasted feed.

        The nets proved to be so successful in turning around the mare’s health that friends took notice and wanted nets of their own. Through word of mouth the demand for the Eco Net grew. What started as a product created to help a family pet quickly grew into a business. In 4 short years Eco Nets has gone from a small home based business in a garage to its current location in Millet, where it employs 7 people on the manufacturing end of the operation.

        When asked why she chose Millet, owner Shauna Johnson says, “We were attracted by the affordability and easy access of the space along with the work force that’s found in Millet.” The location is convenient to the post office for shipping product ordered off the website. Econets are available in any size that you might need at www.econets.ca

        If you prefer to see your product before you buy, you can always stop by the store front or one of the over 50 retailers that now carry Eco Nets.  Eco Nets will also be at the upcoming Edmonton Farm and Ranch Show March 27 -29 and The Main Event in Red Deer April 25-27.
