How Does Your Herd Stack Up?

Oct 28, 2020

Fall is a busy time for cattleman, harvest, weaning and selling of the calf crop, and preparation for the months ahead. I challenge you this year, to consider a new annual routine when it comes to fall herd management. Take the time this fall to subjectively body condition score (BCS) the cow herd on the scale from 1 (emaciated) to 9 (obese) and assess the distribution of condition scores across the cow herd.

Grain Bin Safety

Oct 05, 2020

When harvest is in full swing it’s easy to overlook safety precautions in the interest of time, but that’s no excuse. No amount of bushels is worth a serious accident or life. Take time to be safe while working on or near grain bins.

Improve Your Calves' Microbiome

Oct 03, 2020

In recent years, microorganism based nutrition has been the new hot topic. As we learn more about the microbiome and the population of microbials in each region of the digestive tract, research is showing improved gut health, proper nutrition and stress mitigation help lead to better overall calf health. Premier Cooperative is proud to introduce Biome Boost, a new feed technology that contains a specific combination of ingredients that improve the microbiome of the calf. The technologies in the Biome Boost include specific prebiotic, probiotic, live yeast, beta-glucans, MOS (Mannan Oligosaccharides), yucca, and a high intensity sweetener.
