Testimonials

I gave Calf Renew Boluses to newborn, scouring calves. The ones I gave the bolus to stopped scouring and were healthier after the treatment.

Our calves from, birth to 50 days, gain an average of 2 lbs. per day on Early Wean Calf Starter and whole milk. Our calves are fed above requirements to help them become better performers once they reach the milking herd.
– Landwehr Dairy
Pierz Co-op adds Hydro-Lac into my lactation ration for the summer. We had great success with our herd adjusting to heat stress. The herd stays on feed, maintains production and we have less reproductive issues coming into the fall months after a hot summer.

Sci-Mic BC Boluses work great for cows that are off-feed. They help get them get-going no matter what the problem is.

Not all fat sources are created equally
Adding fat to swine diets has the benefit of improving feed conversion rates, average daily gain, and group uniformity, however, not all dietary fat sources are created equally.

Grass Tetany - It's that time of year again
Spring is my favorite time of year. Calves are on the ground or being born, feedlot cattle are hitting the trucks, and one can gauge how successful their year has been and be reminded of the beauty of new beginnings. Spring also brings rain, or at least it’s supposed to, so that we can produce crops to feed our livestock and our communities, and so that our pasture grasses can grow. Spring also brings the risk of grass tetany or grass staggers. In the beauty of everything becoming ‘green’ again we can sometimes forget about this nutritional disorder which if not prevented, usually has a negative outcome.
