Save on mineral tubs this fall
For many herds, the fall season brings the stress of weaning. However, calf stress can be eliminated with Purina® Stress Tubs. This highly palatable supplement provides the nutrients needed for a fully functioning immune system, which deters calves from getting sick. Additionally, this immune system support allows them to start eating feed faster and respond quickly to vaccination programs.

Putting stress tubs out prior to weaning helps familiarize calves before the onset of stress. As calves enter their weaning pens, they will be more likely to quickly return to the tubs if already accustomed to the tasty treat inside.

As summer transitions into fall, pasture quality can become a concern. Forages mature and lose nutrients, especially protein, over time. When protein or other nutrient requirements are not met in the diet, cattle can quickly lose body condition, which can negatively impact both the cow and her calf. A protein supplement such as Purina® RangeLand® 30-13 tubs can fill this forage nutrient gap during the late summer and early fall months and help cattle stay in ideal condition before winter hits.
