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.

Winter is Coming

Oct 02, 2020

I hope you had a nice September. I was able to get away for a few days to Sturgis, SD. I have a friend who is the CEO of a cooperative there so I went to visit him. It was after the motorcycle rally so I missed the huge crowds. The morning I left there was about 3 inches of snow in Spearfish and I heard they got 10 inches in Deadwood. The early snow reminded me that winter is coming. Now is a great time to ask your heating person to check out your furnace to make sure that it operates safely. While you’re at it, change your filter. If you have a standard filter, they should be replaced every 3 months. When you’re running your air conditioning, the air is going through your filter so it gets dirty even in the summer.
