Drought Management

It's dry, dry, dry.  Our pastures have very little grass left and the need to supplement with hay is here. Get your money's worth when purchasing hay bales; be sure you check the weight of the bales at purchase. Purchase higher quality hay for the better protein content.

Purina Layena Plus Omega-3

Poultry Feed

Layena Plus Omega 3Purina Layena Plus Omega-3 poultry feed is truly unique. It's made with flaxseed, which not only supports a healthy flock, but also provides enhanced nutrients in their eggs. While a typical egg provides a mere 65mg of Omega-3 fatty acids, an egg produced by healthy poultry fed exclusively on Purina Layena Plus Omega-3 poultry feed contains 200mg of Omega-3.  


And, like all Purina Sun Fresh Recipe poultry feeds, Layena Plus Omega-3 poultry feed contains no added hormones, antibiotics, animal fat or animal by-products. Just wholesome goodness for a delicious, homegrown egg.  Click here to read more.

Keeping Your Horse Cool in the Summer

Cool as a cucumber ... but what if you are a horse!  Summer heat and humidity can be a dangerous combination for active horses.  "Overheating, or hyperthermia in the horse is due to a disturbance in the heat regulating mechanism of the horse's body," says Mays. "In addition to summer heat and humidity, poor stable ventilation, prolonged exposure to sun, extreme exercise, transportation/trailering stress, as well as excess weight and poor conditioning may contribute to overheating."  Read more.


Hay Replacement Options for Horses
With hay in short supply across Texas, there are options for horse owners. Complete feeds contain adequate roughage for horses and can replace hay entirely or can help extend the hay that you are able to find.  Many horse owners are not comfortable reducing or taking hay out of a horse's diet, but complete feeds are truly a safe alternative to hay.  Click the link to read more.
