Testimonials

Stress Lic tubs with Stealth 5 improved my calves. I can see the difference in calves that are on it vs. the ones that aren’t!
– Wally Antony
I always weigh my cattle locally before shipping. I have experienced shrink as low as 1% on a 160-mile haul to Dakota City, Nebraska when using the Hydro-Lac program. I have used Hydro-Lac on all my cattle I ship for the last eight years.
– David Schumacher
We have been using ShowDay Feeds for many years and have always been impressed with how our cattle have performed. The product is consistent and high quality every time you open a bag.
– RJB Cattle
Using Hydro-Lac reduced my shrink from 10% to around 3% on shipping heifers.
– Ponderosa Custom Feedlot
We feed Hydro-Lac to the milk cows in the summer to help the cows through the heat. It really helps keep the cows going and they rebound better after hot spells.

The decision to have a deep or shallow pack, how much to bed, how often, and how it can affect performance are all concerns and questions producers have.

Not All Bugs Are Bad: Let's Talk About DFMs
What does a bee, the flu, Bugs Bunny, and bacteria all have in common? Bugs! Although often enough, our first impression of a bug is usually something that isn’t favored, but there are also a lot of bugs that can help out our livestock production systems throughout the course of the year. A DFM is a direct fed microbial, a product that contains live, viable bacteria or yeast. They can be fed to livestock on a daily basis or whenever animals are feeling stress or production challenges.
