With the weather starting to warm up, summer doesn’t seem so far away. However, the summer season also means flies targeting your herd. Mineral containing Altosid has proven to control horn fly populations; without proper control, these flies can cause a detrimental impact to your herd’s performance. The product is easy to use in several different loose mineral and tub products, and right now, you can save five dollars per tub by booking before April 30 and picking up by October 1.

Altosid products in this promotion include:

Having mineral available during the critical production stages of your cattle’s life cycles becomes integral to your cattle’s performance. Booking now gives you assurance in knowing that we have the mineral you need on hand during those critical time periods. Scott Kilber, Agtegra Feed Division Manager, notes the importance of mineral during crucial stages such as breeding.

“Calving is a tremendous drain on mineral reserves,” Kilber said. “Using a breeder type mineral will help replenish a cow’s mineral reserves and prepare her for the upcoming breeding season. Getting your cows re-bred is key to a profitable operation.”

So, why should you trust our products?

Purina provides a variety of mineral types and formulations that can meet any operation’s needs and goals. The products are proven and backed by research trials to ensure that you are provided with a product guaranteed to meet the needs of your herd.

“We take great pride in formulating and recommending products that do exactly what we say they will,” Kilber said.
