Using Concept•Aid® Protein Products is a no-brainer. We switched to a cheaper product to cut cost, but in the long run it ended up costing us more. Now, with the Concept•Aid Protein™ we’ve dramatically shortened our calving interval, our embryo conception rate is over 71%, and we can efficiently put weight on our cows going into winter. Not to mention the convenience of protein and Concept•Aid mineral in one package. We are huge believers!"

Even though last winter was colder than other years, we started selling calves a month earlier at our target weight of 800 to 850 pounds. After what I saw last winter, we won’t feed without VitaFerm®."
