HEUCHELIN-HENKER COMPANY. Founded in 1888 by Edward J. Heuchelin and Otto F. Henger, produced "rooster" flour in addition to a variety of other grain products. The company in 1929, with the motto 'Say It With Flour," was the only feed mill remaining within one hundred miles of Dubuque.

Heuchelin claimed in 1929 that part of the success of the business was that the plant was so arranged that one department helped another eliminating waste. Among the company's products were "Rooster," "O.K.," "White Dove," "Dubuque Made," and "Our Home" grades of wheat flour. Poultry, dairy, and hog feeds and mashes were also made combining as many as twelve ingredients. The company was also known for its cereals, cornmeal, pancake flour, buckwheat flout, whole wheat flour, and pumpernickel. Hay, straw, and oats were all bought and sold. Wheat barley, buckwheat, rye and oats for seed were also handled.

Not all of the company's commodities are made locally. Located adjacent to the CHICAGO GREAT WESTERN RAILROAD tracks, the company bought cod liver oil used in balanced rations for farm animals and birds, another of the company's specialties.

The 1939 Dubuque City Directory through 1942 Dubuque Classified Business Directory listed 494 E. 18th.
