In nature cattle met their nutritional needs by roaming to find plants, licking on mineral deposits and other plant material and consuming fresh, clean water free choice. Farmers now confine their cattle to dry lot paddocks or pastures. Our product choices support feeding cattle either free choice or scheduled feedings.
Dairy cattle have added nutritional stresses placed on their bodies in producing milk. Our SweetPro products not only replenish lost nutrients, but also improve milk production and butter fat counts.

Reduced somatic cell count
Will stay on feed in hot weather

Help choosing how to feed:
Many people believe that animals know what their bodies need and when they need it. In nature, they would find it. Ranch cattle certainly can’t roam far to meet their nutritional needs. We offer products that support free choice feeding for your herd.
