“I get cattle bred back quicker with VitaFerm® Concept•Aid®. I’m a firm believer that a good mineral program will improve your pregnancy rate, whether it’s A.I. or embryo work. Our commercial cows are treated the same as our registered cows. If I can get one or two more pregnancies when I put embryos in, the money I spend on the mineral is well worth it. And, when it comes to weaning those calves, health is the biggest benefit to the mineral. We don’t have feet issues here. Our health program is pretty good. We don’t have calves to treat that get sick at weaning, when the stress and sickness really tend to show up. With the Vita Charge® Stress Tubs, calves stay on feed and stay hydrated to keep cattle low stress at weaning. After using the Vita Charge Stress Tub HEAT®, I will use those again to wean on. With the extreme heat, no rain and not a lot of shade, I could tell these tubs just helped reduce the heat stress, and they went to water and ate with no problems during what is the most stressful times in their lives.”
