SP-1 among others shine in pasture land

A field visit in Six Lakes, Michigan in mid-June was filled with rave reviews of some of the effects our products have had on a transitional hay field. The farmer operates a dairy operation and is wrapping up his final transition year.

Transitional hay ground in Six Lakes, Michigan.

Jersey cows grazed this field early spring prior to a SP-1, Pillar, K-Sulfate, and fish application. In late May, the first cutting of hay was completed. Currently the farmer is gearing up for a second cutting and has been very pleased at how green and lush this grass is compared to area fields. He even noted better stands.

Is grass fed beef no longer a niche market?

Until a few years ago, grass fed beef wasn’t well marketed. Today, the consumer is demanding grass fed beef. If you’re a beef producer, we want to see you meet the needs of your growing customer base by helping you improve your pasture land.

What kind of grass fed beef story would be complete without a picture of cattle in the pasture?!

What kind of grass fed beef story would be complete without a picture of cattle in the pasture?!

With that said we will be at the 2015 Grassfed Exchange Conference tomorrow and Friday at the Comfort Inn and Suites in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. The Grassfed Exchange desires to help producers understand the possibilities for finishing cattle correctly on grass to produce the best quality grass fed beef possible. We hope to join them in helping producers grow in knowledge of the grass-fed industry and in finishing cattle specifically.

The conference will be jam packed with pasture walk tours and presentations by some of our customers including Wayne Rasmussen and Luke Linnenbringer. We will also have a booth at the trade show starting at 10:00 a.m. Thursday through Friday at 4:00 p.m. Be sure to swing by and say hi to one of our agronomists, Gary Campbell. He personally told me right before he left that he is so excited to see what this year’s conference will bring so be sure to make it up to see him!
