FGF & Dairyland Seed Plot Days Thursday, August 23rd
It seems like we barely got the crops planted but its time to start thinking about next season's planting. Again this year, Farmers' Grain & Feed, LLC along with Dairyland Seed will be hosting a plot day on Thursday, August 23rd. Come look at various varieties and maturities of corn and soybeans to start your planning for next year. Also, you will hear about the exciting new changes in store for Dairyland Seed now that the merger between Dow and Dupont is close to completion and the new agricultural division, Corteva, is moving forward.
Even though we are looking forward to next season's planting, keep in mind that we have a good selection of Dairyland Alfalfa available for any summer seeding needs that you may have. We have varieties from the very dependable value priced blends to the high producing, highly digestable Hybriforce varieties. Give Keith a call and he can talk to you about your needs and get you the right seed for your acres.
With the county fair season fast approaching, we would like to wish all of our families that exhibit good luck! Be sure to share your success with us!
Summer has finally arrived!!
As the mercury on the thermometer rises, the health of your herd and their production becomes a concern. Consider using TMR Cooler to help aide in keeping your cows health and production as close to "normal" as possible. With using TMR Cooler it helps keep the cows rumen healthy and with a health rumen you have a healthier cow who will continue to produce milk of good quality. The key to why TMR Cooler is successful is the combination of organic acids. Propionic acid alone will not perform as well as the correct combination of the organic acids. Propionic acid works well on mold, but the most damaging organism in the first 6 to 12 hours in a TMR, is yeast. Seventy percent of wild yeast survives propionic acid treatment. Acetic, benzoic and sorbic acids destroy a far greater proportion of yeast… nearly 100%.
