Co-owners Ken Cousino and Chris Bules took over the store in 1991 and can boast 25 successful years in helping the company grow! Kens agricultural roots included taking part in family farming of grain, alfalfa, poultry, hogs and cattle. Since he was very young, Ken raised dogs, cats, quail, chickens, ducks, pigeons and doves and was an avid child gardener and landscaper. He received a Bachelor of Science degree from The Ohio State University in 1983, and also pursued graduate studies at the University of Houston.
Ken’s childhood, education, professional experience, as well as more than 20 years in business as owner of the store, have made him a community animal and gardening professionals. You’ll find Ken around town as one of Houston’s local agriculture experts on a variety of topics! Some customers refer to him as “Doctor Ken” for the knowledge he’s shared and the assistance he continually provides to animal owners and gardeners.
Chris Bules has loved animals all his life and once dreamed of being a veterinarian. He raised many caged birds, doves, pigeons, dogs, cats and rabbits in his childhood and earned awards as a member of Future Farmers of America (FFA). Chris received a Bachelor of Science degree from The Ohio State University in 1983.
Today, Chris serves as the financial “backbone” of Quality Feed & Garden, working hard to keep prices low while maintaining the company’s profitability. As a lover of animals and breeder of rabbits and doves, Chris knew he found a home at Quality Feed that allowed him to do what he loved, applying all his talents, and for more than 20 years he’s shared that knowledge with customers that keeps the business going strong.
