Wind and Rain Mineral

Upcoming Events.

Each winter, Premier joins our trade partners to host meetings on beef information to help your herd. This year is NO exception! We’ll be joined by Elanco to discuss feed conversions, Rumensin (a big player over the years in our programs) and the resulting return on investment. We’ll also feature a presentation from Corteva.  

Join us Tuesday, February 8th in Readstown and Wednesday, February 9th in Arthur, WI and get a free dinner and chance to win door prizes! To register, contact your local Premier Cooperative representative or office.
 
In addition, to the meetings, winter is a great time to take advantage of our mineral booking program to get the best price on Purina Wind and Rain Minerals and Tubs. Our sales reps and members of the Purina Team are always there to answer all your questions about the program and take care of anything else you might need.

I hope you get the chance to get outside in November. By the time I write the next newsletter, we could see below zero temperatures. Or it could be 70 degrees outside. You just never know. You gotta love Wisconsin. If you don’t like the weather, wait a day.

Temperature fluctuations during winter tend to present challenges for calf raisers across the Midwest and many farms will see an uptick in respiratory issues. More calves are being raised in barns or other housing with greater protection from the elements and these structures rely on natural ventilation to provide clean, fresh air to the calves. This works well in the summertime; however, as doors, windows and curtains are closed in the winter, providing sufficient air exchanges to keep calves healthy can be challenging.
